Players wishing for a little ying to Bloodborne's dark and brooding yang will be happy to find a new, bright and colorful map pack for the console versions of Minecraft available to them as paid DLC.

PS4, PS3, PS Vita and Xbox One can each get their hands on the riotous, fabric-like explosion of happiness and comfort that is the Pattern Texture Pack which is kind of like the Little Big Planet pack version 2. The world gets reimagined in yarn, giving all the blocks a soft, quilted appearance.

You can even add knitted animals, which you can then hunt down and destroy, thereby getting you banned in certain countries.

"The pack also provides a pattern-themed UI and stylized texture set that can be applied to new or previously created Minecraft worlds."

PlayStation Edition gamers will also finally gain access to the Mass Effect Mash-Up Pack, which lets users "explore the Mars Facility from Bioware's Mass Effect 3 and create their own worlds using Mass Effect textures and craftable items." Create your own Shep-err, Femshep (the one true Shephard!) and construct your own, non-bs ending to one of gaming's greatest trilogies. This new pattern should go great when applied to that replica of the Citadel that made some waves a few years back.

Additionally, the pack will include "a themed UI and menus plus 36 character skins and 22 music tracks let players battle Reapers in a blocky Minecraft universe."

Both Pattern Texture and Mass Effect Mash-Up packs are currently available for purchase for $0.99 and $4.99 respectively.
