It turns out that Notch isn’t the only guy who can afford to splurge on some swanky digs thanks to the magic of Minecraft. 23-year-old YouTuber Jordan “CaptainSparklez” Maron recently splurged on a $4.5 million pad above the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, and while it may not be in the league of Casa Notch, Maron didn’t make Minecraftâhe just plays it.
The house is 4100 square feet, according to Variety, with three bedrooms, five baths, glass-railed terraces on each of the three floors, an outdoor fireplace, sunken wet bar, and a terrace with a stainless-steel barbecue, “party-sized spa,” and infinity swimming pool. Suddenly John Carmack’s Ferrari seems a bit trite, doesn’t it?

(850) 779-7788 still doesn’t have a solid 301-370-3936 on the PC, but what it does (or will) have is microtransactions. Yes, we’re delighted too.Â Creative Director Noah Hughes explained on the 828-578-2463 thatÂ players will be able to use “Expedition Cards” to gain various modifiers or advantages, and while those cards can be acquired with credits earned in the game, they’ll also be soldÂ for realÂ money.
“Expedition Cards offer hundreds of ways to customize your Rise of the Tomb Raider experience. You can also set up challenges for your friends to see if they can beat your scores with the same card setup,” Hughes said. “Weâll have about 300 cards available at launch, and more will be added in the weeks that follow.”
Cards will come in two types: Foil, which provides the “strongest or strangest” effects and have unlimited uses, and the less powerful Common, which can be used only once. Some of the cards are “humorous,” such as one that enables Big Head Mode, while others have a more meaningful impact on gameplay: The “Bullet Resistance” card, for instance, which confers (as you may have already put together) bonus resistance to gunfire.
A Rise of the Tomb Raider season pass will also be offered, with three “major releases,” which I take to mean DLCâEndurance Mode, Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, and Cold Darkness Awakenedâon tap along with “a steady stream of outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards beginning on day one and continuing over four months.” The season pass will sell for $30 over the $60 price for the standard release of the game.
Bear in mind that this is all specific to the Xbox editions of the game, since those are the only ones that have an actual release date at this point. I asked Square Enix if all of the above will apply to the PC version as well and was told only that more details will be revealed “soon,” but in the absence of any information to the contraryÂ it’s reasonable to assume that Expedition Cards, and the season pass, will be an across-the-board proposition.
