Minecraft’s summer sale on content packs has daily 75% off deals, and one big freebie

It’s 2024, and there are loads of different ways to play Minecraft. Its marketplace contains additions like themed worlds, mini-games, and packs that allow you to edit the look of the game. Now, with the upcoming Summer Celebration, fans will get the chance to buy select packs for up to a 75% discount, and try out new content.

The Minecraft Marketplace is a digital storefront where approved community creators can buy and sell add-ons to the Minecraft game. Players purchase this additional content with Minecoins, an in-game currency purchasable digitally or in stores. (At the time of publication, Amazon sells 1,720 Minecoins for $9.88.) The sale will start on July 2 and run until July 16. All items sold in the Marketplace require a version of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition with Minecraft Marketplace.

According to Mojang’s blog post, players can expect “a lot” of the Marketplace catalog will be discounted by 33%, and there will be a daily deal with two new content packs discounted at 75% off for 24 hours. So if you (or your kid) has been eyeballing a particular pack, you might want to check in daily.

If you don’t want to spend those precious Minecoins, there is one freebie you can take advantage of: During the duration of the sale, players can now download the “Trial Chamber Legends” adventure world for free. This add-on contains quests, puzzles, and challenges, so if you want a more structured Minecraft experience, it wouldn’t hurt to grab it while it’s free.
