Minecraft Xbox 360 digs up Skyrim-themed DLC

Minecraft Xbox 360 digs up Skyrimthemed DLC
Like so many diamonds and angry Creepers, the people behind the Xbox 360 iteration of Minecraft have once again unearthed something unexpected: an upcoming DLC pack full of content drawn from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Included in this addition are "an exclusive Skyrim-themed texture set, 40 character skins, themed menus and user interface, craftable items," and 20 songs from the Skyrim soundtrack. Most intriguingly, the DLC also adds a new pre-generated world to Minecraft. While this will obviously be a blocky adaptation, the map is said to directly mimic that seen in Skyrim, and will cover an area that includes Bleak Falls Barrow, Whiterun and Riverwood.

There's no word on when we can expect a public release for this DLC, but those attending this year's Minecon in Orlando, Florida this weekend will be the first to see the new content.
