Minecraft is getting an update this spring that will add a number of new features, but the most dramatic might be the Minecraft Marketplace, a storefront where users can buy and sell in-game creations for real money. The Marketplace will offer maps, texture packs, skins, min-games and more, all curated by the Minecraft team.

The launch catalog will feature selections from a handful of creators picked by Minecraft to take part, but the plan is to eventually open it up to any users with a registered business in time, and you can apply to register here.

The team is looking at ways to make the content users buy available across devices, so that when they buy on Windows 10 it’ll be available on mobile and vice versa – this will happen via an Xbox Live account, which is probably a good way for Microsoft to convert some Minecraft fans to users of its other services.
