Minecraft: Halo Edition launching tomorrow

Minecraft-HaloLike most Halo fans, I’ve been going through some serious withdrawals lately.  Halo 4 is becoming a distant memory, and Halo 5 is still over a year away.  So what is there to tide us over during this long stretch with no Master Chief?  Well, starting tomorrow, we’ll be able to dive into Minecraft: Halo Edition, and it’s a lot more than just a few re-skins.  Read on for all the details.

Minecraft: Halo Edition is more than just a set of special skins, although it does come with a number of them.  40, to be exact.  You’ll be able to dress up your Minecraft minion as everyone from Master Chief, to Cortana, to evil Cortana, to Captain Keyes (both of them).  The expansion will also come with a number of pre-made Halo worlds, all ready to be explored and/or hacked into tiny bits.  Blood Gulch is naturally included, as is Sandtrap, Valhalla, Silent Cartographer, and a number of others.  Want to see what Minecraft: Halo Edition looks like in all its blocky glory?  Check out the trailer below.

Now, obviously, the expansion of Minecraft is exclusive to the Xbox 360. It launches tomorrow, and will sell for $3.99.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
