Official Minecraft magazine coming to the UK 'very soon'

If you just can't get enough Minecraft while in front of a screen of some sort, then we've got good news: an official Minecraft magazine is on the way in the UK. Called simply "Minecraft: Official Magazine," Mojang promises the first issue will arrive "very soon"

From the sound of things, the magazine will be a solid resource for building tips and stories from other players. And for Minecraft fans, it's sure to be eye candy as well. Here's what to expect, from Mojang:

And so, together with our publishing partner Egmont (responsible for our many fine books) we've put together a wonderful papery companion for Minecraft - packed with dev insight, fun and frolics. There are elite building tips, survival stories and so, so much more to be found within. There's even a comic, illustrated by the truly amazing Trudi Castle and starring new Minecrafting heroes - Bear, Scout, Monty and Sparks - who also dole out useful 'crafting advice throughout the mag. You'll hear more about them soon!

Included in the inaugural issue will be 14 pages of hints and tips, Mojang says. Issues two and three are also hinted at with Nether and winter themes, respectively. There's no word on exactly when the first issue will land, but it will come in at a price of £4.99. Plans for the magazine's launch in other countries are also in the works, but there's no timeframe provided.
