Minecraft Fans Can Save 30% On Official Visual History Preorders At Amazon


The upcoming visual history of Minecraft just received a huge discount at Amazon, dropping the price from $40 to $28. Created by Mojang Studios and set to be published on September 3 by Random House Worlds, The World of Minecraft is a 224-page hardcover book that tells the story of the game’s 15-year history. It’ll include full-color art, development secrets, and interviews with Mojang developers, content creators, and notable members of the Minecraft community.

The World of Minecraft will launch just in time to catch up on your Minecraft history before the live-action Minecraft movie premieres in theaters next year. While we don’t know much about the movie’s plot, Jack Black will reportedly star as one of the main characters from the game, Steve. Emma Myers, Jason Momoa, Danielle Brooks, Jennifer Coolidge, Kate McKinnon, and Jemaine Clement are all confirmed to star in the movie as well. The movie recently wrapped filming in April, so we expect more news to be revealed soon. In the meantime, check our round-up of everything we know about the Minecraft movie for all the details shared so far.

The upcoming movie is far from the only piece of non-gaming media to tell a story within the world of Minecraft. The modern classic has also been adapted to the page. Multiple children’s book series focused on Minecraft are available now. You can get the six-book Woodsword Chronicles box set for $35 at Amazon (down from $60). You can also preorder the Stonesword Saga six-book box set at a 15% discount ahead of its May 7 release.

Minecraft is one of the wildest success stories in video game history. What started as a simple one-man project in 2009 ballooned into one of the best-selling games of all time that now ranks among the likes of Super Mario Bros., Fortnite, Grand Theft Auto V, and Pokemon Red/Blue as one of those rare generation-defining games for millions of players.
