Update, November 9, 2017: The Microsoft Store previously listed the Super Plus Pack for a December 2017 launch, but since this article went live, the release date has been shifted to Spring 2018. While that doesn't mean we'll have to wait until Spring 2018 for the Xbox One X enhancements, at the very least, it looks as though this bundle will come a little later than previously stated. We'll update you with the latest on the 4K Super Duper Graphics Pack for Xbox One X and the Super Plus Pack bundle as soon as we have more information.
Original article below:
Microsoft announced the Super Duper Graphics Pack back at E3, touting new lighting, water visuals, and 4K resolution for Minecraft on the Xbox One X, but we don't have a firm launch date as of yet. Instead, what we do have is a new Super Plus Pack, which bundles various Minecraft addons (including 4K enhancements), listed for launch on December 6, 2017.
Minecraft Super Plus Pack for Xbox One
Minecraft is a game about placing blocks and going on adventures. Includes Super Duper Graphics Pack and Explorers Pack with Chinese Mythology Mashup, Natural Texture Pack, Biome Settlers Skin Pack, Battle and Beasts Skin Pack, and Campfire Tales Skin Pack. Games play better on Xbox One X.
While this pack doesn't necessarily mean we'll have to wait until December to get the update, at the very least, it means it's the latest date you can expect it to drop.
The Minecraft Super Plus Pack bundle will be available for $39.99 for Xbox One.
