Minecraft fans have a new collaboration DLC to check out, this time based on the Ice Age movie franchise. The DLC includes 30 new skins, including fan favorites like Sid, Manny, Diego, and Ellie. The DLC also features a number of different locations from the movies and a collection mission that tasks players with finding hidden acorns (of course). As we have seen with other Minecraft collaborations, the Ice Age DLC is only compatible with Minecraft bedrock, and can be purchased for 1,340 Minecoins. Ice Age fans who don’t have the Minecoins to spend can also grab a free Acorn Hat Character Creator item from the Dressing Room.
A trailer for the new DLC can be found below. Readers interested in purchasing and downloading the new game content can do so here.

So far, the reception of the new DLC set seems pretty positive! The first one Ice Age released in 2002, and the series has developed a passionate fanbase over the past 20 years; there seems to be a lot of Minecraft fans who grew up with this series. Many reacted with surprise at seeing the franchise represented in the game, but it seems that many want to deposit Minecoins to buy the DLC.
This officially licensed collab was developed by 4J Studios, the team behind Marketplace options like Super Retro and Caverns of Chaos. Besides the Ice Age, Minecraft has hosted a number of other collaborations over the past few months. In May, the game added new content based on the Angry Birds franchise. A similar DLC pack based on the Sonic the Hedgehog games was released last year and was updated in April with new content. These types of collabs definitely won’t be for everyone, but it was fun to see all the different options that have been added recently!
Minecraft is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC. You can check out our previous coverage of the game here.
