Minecoins

Tokens

The Marketplace (Minecraft Store on PlayStation 4) is an in-game store, where players can purchase access to skins, add-ons and worlds[1] from community creators, who in turn get reimbursed for their creations. Players can access these by spending Minecoins (or Tokens on PlayStation 4), which can be bought with their own currency, or bought directly.

Cost of Minecoins[]

Note: Pricing is the same for Tokens on PlayStation 4. (Tax and Fees are subject to change by country and area.)

Requirements[]

The Marketplace is a service that can only be accessed by players that meet these requirements:

Content[]

There are 4 different categories of content available on the Marketplace, including Skin Packs, Worlds, Texture Packs and Mash-up Packs. There is currently no option to purchase individual add-ons that are not exclusively packaged with a world. All purchased content instantly syncs to your Microsoft account unless you are not signed into your Xbox profile, in which case it will be saved locally to your device.

All content is submitted by official Minecraft partners and is approved by the Minecraft Content Team.

Skin Packs[]

Skins Packs are collections of custom skins that players can use in both singleplayer and multiplayer games. Depending on the specific content, some Skin Packs provide 1 or 2 free skins for you to use without needing to purchase.

Worlds[]

Worlds are pre-built maps that offer wide variety of in-game experiences. Not to be confused with Mash-up packs, Worlds can also include custom textures, blocks, items and mobs and be bundled with bonus skins.

Adventure Maps[]

Adventure maps are self-contained experiences that focus on exploring and other types of guided gameplay. These types of worlds can range from PvP arenas to simulators and can be designed for singleplayer, multiplayer or both.

Mini-Games[]

Mini-games are compact worlds with a specific theme or goal that are designed to be repeatable. These can feature a set of different gamemodes and variants or be designed to reset continuously.

Survival Spawns[]

Survival spawns are starter maps that players can explore, gain loot from and expand. Maps of this type can sometimes add an entirely new aspect to the game but will still allow players to experience the world as they normally would in survival mode.

Texture Packs[]

Texture Packs allow players to change to change the visual appearance of worlds. These packs can also customize other in-game elements such as sounds, items, the GUI and the geometry/ shape of mobs. Texture Packs are only able to alter existing features in Minecraft and cannot add new mobs, blocks or items.

Mash-up Packs[]

Mash-up Packs are special bundles that combine a world, texture pack and skins. Unlike Worlds, texture packs included in Mash-up Packs can be used across other singleplayer worlds and even servers.

Trivia[]

  • Before the Minecraft Marketplace was introduced, real money was used to buy the in-game Texture Packs and Skins. When Mojang did it this way, all of the content had to pass certification on every single platform. The Marketplace and Minecoins were introduced to avoid this.[citation needed]
  • Any packs that were bought before the Marketplace was introduced read "Owned (P)" instead of "Owned".
  • On PlayStation 4, Tokens are used instead of Minecoins and do not transfer to or from other platforms.[3] They are light, matte blue and have a large T in the middle instead of an M.
  • Skins, add-ons and worlds downloaded from the Marketplace are not stored in the of the skin_packs, behavior_packs, resource_packs or minecraftWorlds of the com.mojang folder. They are instead stored in the premium_cache folder and are encrypted.
