Minecraft gets Loot Crate-like subscription service, Mine Chest

We hope it's filled with more Dragon Eggs and less Coal.

Mojang has announced it will be launching a monthly subscription service that delivers Minecraft to your door every month, called Mine Chest.

Mine Chest will offer monthly shipments of Minecraft gear, exclusive items, and DIY crafting recipes for $29.99 per month plus taxes and shipping and handling. Minecraft fans might want to give Mine Chest some serious consideration as Mojang says some of its items won’t be found anywhere else outside of its monthly subscription service.

The first Mine Chest orders will ship out in May with those ordering prior to the end of February receiving the “extremely limited” Mine Chest Beta version. This special chest will include items that are based on the beginnings of Minecraft.

Mine Chest is only available in the US, but Mojang plans on expanding its service globally in the future.

      Mein Chest is my favorite fan-fic about Hitler as a transsexual.

        It just barely beats out A bra macht frei, Hitler's transexual journey to womanhood and acceptance of the social norms that go along with having gigantic tits.

              Critics Pan der Fuerer
              Berlin. Noted war criminal and some-time artist Adolf Hitler found himself getting clobbered on another veritable eastern front this month when his transsexual semi-autobiographical film fell flatter on its face than American President Franklin Roosevelt trying to do the charleston. Of Hitler in an evening gown, critics had this to say: "Woofenstein!" chided Hugh Rection from The Wall Street Journal, "If this is the master race the nazis are building, somebody tell them to wave the yellow flag!" Chicago-based Roger Ebert commented, "I think this movie will touch more lives in a profoundly negative way than the Stalingrad campaign. And much like those poor bastards that spent the last winter of their lives in Russia, I can't give this movie any thumbs." But no review came close to the single line offered by The New Yorker's Phil McCracken: "Christ, what an asshole!"

                But some fans loved it. Worf from Dusseldorf was quoted as saying "Third Reich? First rate!"

      I could see that a one-off Mine Chest might be fun for a kid, but every month? How much Minecraft stuff could someone use?

      So is this the new trend? Is everyone making "geek crates" now haha? I'm not really complaining seeing as I just signed up for Loot Crate's new one, LootGaming but I am seeing these things pop up all over now.

        Cheap shit that people will over pay for? Yeah. That's been the trend for a few decades.

      Exclusive items, lol. I'm sure some people would actually shell out $30 a month for it too.

        As long as they aren't stupid about inventory and over ordering it is basically free money.
