Earlier this month, Minecraft with RTX left the beta stage, becoming available for Windows 10 players. A couple of weeks before Mojang and Nvidia's technical achievement, meanwhile, a Star Wars DLC themed after the fictional universe's original trilogy and The Mandalorian TV series was released in the Marketplace.
Now, with the holiday season having arrived, the Minecraft Marketplace New Year's Sale has gone live, bringing a flurry of discounts, and some freebies for good measure.
For starters, the "doorbusters" feature introduced at last year's 'Block' Friday sale is being brought back. These are essentially flash sales arriving in the form of two daily deals per day at 75% off for each item. The discounts this time around will be focused on creator content. Aside from this, up to 100 regular items will also be available at 33% off for the duration of the New Year's Sale. Notably, these regular items will refresh halfway through the sale, so make sure to keep that in mind if something catches your eye.
Finally, Tetrascape's New Year's 2021 skin pack is being offered to players for free. The item boasts traditional outfits from Brazil, South Africa, Phillipines, North America, and the United Kingdom. It can be claimed here.
Minecraft's New Year's Sale will be continuing from December 22 through January 4. The aforementioned midway refresh will take place on December 29, which marks the end of the sale's first week.
