Minecraft’s new mini game hit consoles last week and it’s completely free.

Minecraft Battle is the new mini-game for consoles that was announced back in May.

It’s the first in a series of mini-games being introduced to all console versions of the game and takes its inspiration from the PC community’s activities.

While Battle Mode is free and comes with three maps, you can pick up additional map packs for £2.39, or fork out for the season pass at £7.99 that includes all four of the map packs that will eventually be released.

You can pick up the first pack today to unlock Temple, Medusa, and Lair maps.

Minecraft Battle Mode is out now for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and PS Vita.
