Microsoft Corp. this week said the company, Mojang and 343 Studios will release Minecraft: Halo Edition May 29.

The Halo Mash-Up Pack DLC includes a Halo-themed texture set and 40 character skins including Master Chief, Cortana, Sergeant Johnson, and Arbiter.

In addition, the pack features pre-made worlds including Silent Cartographer, Sandtrap, Valhalla, Blackout, Guardian, and Blood Gulch.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has sold 12 million units to date.

Developed by 4J Studios, Minecraft for Xbox 360 is a translation of the sandbox simulation title.

It includes a new training mode that guides new users into the crafting process. In addition, a new console-friendly crafting interface allow users to see exactly which materials are needed to craft each item.

In the title, users can craft and build items by chopping world items like trees, rocks, and sand to build an array of tools, fuel, and materials. Tools can be used to craft materials faster, fuel can heat items to form new product or food from the furnace, and materials can be used to build a shelter to keep safe from monsters.

Minecraft sells at $19.99.
