Minecraft in brief in February 2022

Minecraft opened in February 2022 celebrating the Lunar New Year with players. Between February 1 and February 7, it offered theme packs, a free world by Next Studio, and a free tiger-themed mask and sweater in the character creator. Additionally, Minecraft opened up a new world with a new map, the Legend of Nezha. The fun in this sandbox video game, however, didn’t stop after said party. Minecraft has just continued to spice things up for its players.

Hot off the heels of the Lunar New Year treat, Minecraft released a free collaboration DLC map, PUMA x Minecraft: Sprint Dash, on February 8. This provided players with a new line of Minecraft x PUMA clothing and footwear or 24 Puma skins. Here, players can explore three interactive maps leading them to a city, a jungle, and an arctic while collecting items and picking up upgrades.

On the other hand, Minecraft celebrated another milestone by reaching over 15 million players since the game’s launch. This happened during the Festival of Frost, which was part of Minecraft Dungeon’s winter theme that lasted until to February 22. The winter-themed event on the map offered frosty structures and floors.

At the same time, it was announced that the Chills and Thrills Seasonal Trials from last year’s event would be making a return.

“The Seasonal Trials of the Chills and Thrills event will return, giving players who missed last year’s event the chance to experience all the fun. And, saving the best for last, to commemorate this occasion, every player who logs into the game after February 8 will receive the Iceologer Cape reward as a thank you for being part of our ongoing journey,” Per Landin wrote in a post on Minecraft.net.

On February 18, the World Warrior Skin Pack arrived on the Minecraft Marketplace. Brought to you by 57Digital and Capcom, the skin pack features 35 classic Capcom fighters like Ryu and Chun-Li. It also offers one free character creator item and twelve paid character creator items.

“These familiar faces have been on our screens for even longer than Steve and Alex, and now you can play as one (or all 35!) of them in Minecraft,” wrote Sophie Austin in a post on Minecraft.net.
