What you need to know

  • Minecraft has a ton of community-built and official packs with different textures, maps, and skins.
  • These packs can inject extra personality into vanilla Minecraft, and often feature other franchises.
  • Today, Mojang is releasing the Mass Effect Mash-Up pack for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on all platforms, including PC.
  • It's an older pack originally released for console-specific editions, but now it's more widely available.

The Minecraft Marketplace is a vibrant and busy location for Minecraft fans to get a ton of content from texture packs, new character skins, maps and more. Many of these packs are built by dedicated members of the community, but Mojang themselves like to join in the fun whenever they can. Today, a texture pack from years past is making a valiant return on the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft, meaning it's available on all platforms Minecraft is (including PC.)

Yes, this Mash-Up pack is a rehashed version of an older texture pack released back in 2014 on console-specific versions of Minecraft like the Xbox 360. However, it's back and better than ever and features new textures, a new map, and 36 character skins for you to play as. You guessed it, all of this is modeled after the popular sci-fi RPG series, Mass Effect (specifically Mass Effect 3.) If you're a fan and are lamenting the series absence from modern gaming, this might be a good consolation.

If you're interested, you can grab the Mass Effect Mash-Up pack from the Minecraft Marketplace for 990 Minecraft Coins, or a little less than $6.
