Microsoft has announced that it plans to team up with Minecraft community creators, bringing 12 brand new pieces of holiday-themed DLC to players as a gift for the holidays.
Any Minecraft player that wants to take advantage of this opportunity can do so by logging into Minecraft every 24 hours and heading to the Minecraft Marketplace to download free content. This event begins at midnight on December 21, 2017 and new DLC items will drop every subsequent 24 hours. The event will conclude on the night of January 1, 2018 at 11:59 PM. You'll need to own the base Minecraft game in order to download the free content.
Though few details were shared on the majority of the DLC items, Microsoft provided a sneak peek for the first drop, which appears to be a special map built for snow sledding. Judging by the images provided in its announcement article, it looks like you'll be able to race down a winding course against your friends. The author of the article, "Marsh Davies," hinted that more news would be coming soon about other types of upcoming Marketplace content too.
