Doctor Who is making a visit to Minecraft!
Doctor Who fans, you are in for a treat. Doctor Who DLC is making its way to Minecraft on the Xbox 360! Microsoft and the BBC have struck a deal that will allow players to have access to a variety of Doctor Who-themed assets. In addition, players will be able to change their character into key characters from the TV show’s sci-fi universe.
There are going to be several DLC packs released overtime. The first of these DLC’s will be available this September for 3 dollars. This DLC pack will feature a twelfth doctor look-alike, five other doctors and their companions, and several of the key Doctor Who adversaries including Daleks.
“We’re constantly looking for new and innovative ways to bring Doctor Who content to our loyal fans. Working collaboratively with Microsoft, we’ve created an exciting new product which will allow Doctor Who fans to create their own brand new adventures in the heart of the iconic world of Minecraft.” Explains Digital Entertainment and Games Director of BBC Worldwide UK Rikesh Desai.
Minecraft has sold over 13 million copies on Xbox 360 and is one of the most popular games played today.
Minecraft is where it’s at! This game just keeps getting better and better. I don’t follow the Doctor Who series like I should (it’s on my list of things to watch) but I know its popularity and will no doubt do well. Keep it up Xbox and Minecraft!
