Fans of the popular sci-fi series Doctor Who will love this latest development. As part of a deal between BBC Worldwide, Microsoft Studios and Mojang, a range of Doctor Who assets will be released for Minecraft on Xbox 360. Characters from the series will become “Blocktor Who” according to the BBC on Minecraft come September.
The Doctor Who themed packs that will be released for Minecraft next month will include character skins as well as various other assets that have been crafted based on the popular show. Players will be able to change their avatar to resemble their favorite characters from Doctor Who.
The first pack of assets includes characters inspired by the Twelfth Doctor, as well as five other Doctors, and will also include their on-screen companions. Some of their well known adversaries will also be present, including but not limited to the Daleks. This pack is priced at $2.99.
This deal between BBC Worldwide and the developers doesn’t end here. Over time more packs will be released which will introduce many of the instantly recognizable characters from the 50-year rich history of Doctor Who. There will be at least six Doctors in each skin pack and the releases will be timed after Series 8 episodes are aired.
A concrete release date for the first pack hasn’t been revealed but fortunately we only have to wait until next month before it finally lands.
