How Much Will Minecraft Legends Cost? – Minecraft Legends Price Guide
The amount you’ll have to pay for Minecraft Legends depends on which edition you purchase. These two editions, Standard and Deluxe, each have their own perks and price differences. While Standard Edition comes with the base game, Deluxe Edition includes an exclusive skin pack for a reduced price.
With that said, below are the US prices for both:
- Standard Edition – $39.99 (or your regional equivalent)
- Deluxe Edition – $49.99
- Deluxe Skin Pack – $14.99
The list above also includes the price of the deluxe skin pack, which costs slightly extra if bought separately. However, if you purchase standard and want the skins later, you can do so without spending an additional $50 on a second game copy. Either way, you get a new hero skin and several mount skins in exchange. If you want to spend less, you can save $10 by getting Standard Edition and using the default skins.
