Minecraft console edition gets another taste of Fallout with new Battle maps

Minecraft fans are getting another little taste of Fallout with a new Battle map pack. Available for the console editions of the game on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS4, the Fallout Battle maps add slices from the Fallout world for play in the game's Battle mini game.

In total, there are 3 maps available, featuring locations from Fallout 4. Here's a look, from Mojang:

  • LIBERTALIA - This destroyed dockyard, repurposed as a raider settlement in Fallout 4, is the inspiration for our first Battle map. Husks of decaying watercraft lie tilted in the waters, makeshift scaffolds and walkways allowing players to skip from one rust-bucket to the next.
  • Capitol - This map is a sort of Greatest Hits of Fallout's vision of shattered Americana, pulling together different urban elements from across the series. There are nods to Fallout 3's Capital Wasteland, with the Capitol Building looming in the background of the map, while its dilapidated cityscape, strung across with overpasses, conceals notable destinations from Fallout 4 - like the iconic Red Rocket truck stop.
  • ATOMICS GALLERIA - Appearing in Fallout 4, the General Atomics Galleria is a sort of technology showcase themepark, designed by a long-dead corporation to model what a robot-run commercial district might look like. It's somehow survived the nuclear war, and sits derelict, waiting for its grand re-opening.

This is the second big dose of Fallout that has hit Microsoft's open-world sandbox after the Fallout Mash-Up Pack launched with new skins and more in late December. If you're interested in checking out the new Battle maps, they can be had a as pack for $2.99 now.
