Master Chief gets the Minecraft treatment

Minecraft is just made for mashups. We’ve seen blocky interpretations of Far Cry 3, Mass Effect, Heavy Rain and Uncharted, and even The Simpsons, and now there’s a new kid on the block: Halo.

The official, Microsoft-endorsed mash-up pack is due out sooon, bringing with it a blocky nostalgia fix.

You’ll get reskinned menus and interface, a new texture set, look-alike items inspired by the game, music tracks from the Halo series, and 40 new character skins. There’s also a brand new world map, featuring iconic series locations… and yes, Blood Gulch is there, of course.

While we assume that this – like other Minecraft mash-ups – will be free, there’s no set release date just yet. We’re promised more information this week – in the meantime, you’ll just have to make do with these screens, showing just some of the characters and locations that will be available.

Remember, if you’d prefer your Master Chief a little less-pixelated, Halo 5: Guardians is on its way, and we’ll be learning more about that at E3 next month.
