Minecraft is generally about exploring your very own world, hollowing it out, hoarding its resources, and building a utopia for yourself and your farm animals. That's about to change, though, with the expansion announced today.

Microsoft, Mojang and BioWare revealed in a press release this afternoon that the Mass Effect "Mash-Up Pack" for Minecraft on Xbox 360 will be released Sept. 4 for $3.99 (or 320 Microsoft Points—wait, those are still around?).


In these new "Mash-Up" expansions—of which there will definitely be more—"worlds from other popular game franchises are fused into Minecraft’s iconic pixelated form."

The Mass Effect pack features a pixely recreation of the Mars Facility location from Mass Effect 3, plus Mass Effect textures and craft-able items, themed menus and UI, 36 new characters skins, and 22 music tracks. It was created by Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition developers 4J Studios.
