As Microsoft and Mojang prep up the large Discovery Update, they’ve made some space to release a large piece of the Minecraft puzzle. Out alongside the update this spring is the Marketplace, an official store that offers in-game content like skins and maps from both Microsoft and the game’s top creators.
This is only on offer for any Pocket Edition or Windows 10 version of Minecraft, so don’t expect to start cruising the Marketplace for skins on your PlayStation 4 anytime soon. Purchases are tied to each player’s Xbox Live account.
This isn’t only good news for players. Microsoft touts this as a way “to give Minecraft creators another way to make a living from the game, allowing them to support themselves in the creation of ever-greater projects.”
How much will creators make?
Microsoft is rolling out a new currency called Minecraft Coins that are picked up through microtransactions. Players will use Minecraft Coins to shop the marketplace. When they make a purchase, the app platforms will get a 30 percent cut, “but creators get the majority after that.”
Anyone quitting their day job for this one?
