Mojang Studio brough a new way of getting downloadable content in Minecraft Minecraft Guide: How to change game modes in Minecraft with the launch of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. The game developer introduced a Marketplace, which is an in-game store for community-made and official creations, that enables players to buy different items such as mini-games, skins, maps, texture packs, and more to use in the game. It also introduced in-game tokens known as Minecoins which players can use for purchasing items in the game and can be bought in the game store. However, not all community made content requires Minecoins. Some packs and worlds can be downloaded for free.

Notably, upon entering the Minecraft Marketplace, players will see all the featured content available along with different categories for creations. Players can either browse the given categories or select the type of creations they would like to view. They can also narrow down the creations even further using Filters. Now, filters can be used to specify the type of content players would like to browse. There are multiple filters that can be applied to help you determine what they would like to purchase or download. Some of the filters that players can apply are: pack types, minecoins, bundles, realms plus, and ratings.


If you are new to Minecraft, here is a step-by-step guide of how players can buy items in Marketplace:
