If you are among the people who just can’t wait to celebrate one of the major annual events in their favorite game and earn some unique rewards while doing it, this article is for you specifically.

The Lunar New Year is here, and Minecraft is ready to celebrate alongside communities around the world with a free map, and tiger-themed character items.

Let’s get right into it and see what the creators have prepared for this year’s virtual festivities.

Playres can earn unique bonus rewards during the event

Since we’re celebrating, and the pixelated air in Minecraft already smells like an oriental renaissance fair, let’s talk about all the goodies we can score this season.

First of all, the Legend of Nezha map will be available on the Minecraft Marketplace for the next 12 months for free.

This new area has been designed by the people at Next Studio, and it allows Minecraft players to immerse themselves in a tale of heroes and battles, and even a fight with a Strone Queen.

You were, of course, wondering about character items, so you should know that there’s a free tiger mask and a free tiger sweater.

However, the above-mentioned cosmetics will only be free between February 1 and February 7, so you better step on it if you want to add them to your collection.

Keep in mind that, if you also want a shot at these rewards and the new map, you’ll need the latest version of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition and access to Minecraft Marketplace.

This is actually very exciting news for Minecraft players that are always hungry for new content, especially since it’s been some time since the last DLCs were dropped.

Take advantage of this opportunity, have fun with your friends, and earn those cosmetic seasonal rewards you were looking forward to so much.
