A few weeks back, we had a Mass Effect mash-up come to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, which brought the familiar look and feel of Mass Effect into the pixelated Minecraft world. Well, at Minecon 2013 on Thursday, it was jointly announced by Mojang, Bethesda Game Studios, Bethesda Softworks and Microsoft Studios that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Mash-Up pack for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition would be coming soon. The mash-up contains 40 character skins, a Skyrim themed texture, menus, craftable items and user interface as well as 20 choices from the Skyrim soundtrack.

The nice thing is that you get started right off the bat with a pre-made world featuring Whiterun, Riverwood and Bleak Falls Barrow. Maybe some enterprising folks could try and recreate Markarth or the College of Winterhold. Regardless, no word on whether the dagger exploit will be one of the craftable items in order to mac out your crafting skill. Anyways, until the pack hits, check out the cool images passed along below.
