We’ve partnered with heroic ‘crafters well-known to the community to build up a launch catalogue of amazing adventure maps, texture packs, minigames and more. Noxcrew, BlockWorks, Qwertyuiop The Pie, Blockception, Sphax, Eneija Silverleaf, Imagiverse, Polymaps and Razzleberry Fox are the folk on board at launch, but we’re opening up submissions to anyone with a registered business. For more info on how to apply, go here!
"The idea is to give Minecraft creators another way to make a living from the game, allowing them to support themselves in the creation of ever-greater projects, while giving Pocket and Windows 10 players access to a growing catalogue of fun stuff - curated and supplied by us, safely and simply. And, of course, you can still manually download free community creations you’ve found out there on the internet, too."
To make the Marketplace possible, Minecraft will introduce Minecraft Coins which you can buy with in-app purchases. A public beta of Minecraft Coins will be launched on Android in mid-April but won't include creator content. That will be added later in Spring.
A Reddit AMA will be held on Thursday, 20 April, from 9am - 12pm PST to provide more details...
You can purchase Minecraft: Pocket Edition from the App Store for $6.99.
