Now players will get the chance to dress Steve up as a Dalek and run around Minecraft yelling "EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!" at various wildlife.

Last Saturday heralded the return of everyone's favorite Time Lord with the premiere of Series 8, and today the official Doctor Who website announced that The Doctor will be coming to the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft.

BBC Worldwide alongside Microsoft Studios and Mojang have collaborated to bring a series of DLC that will allow players access to a wide range of Doctor Who-themed assets, along with character skins resembling The Doctor's numerous incarnations and various other characters from the British sci-fi show. According to the website, the first pack will drop sometime in September for the price of $2.99 (or £1.99/€2.85 if you live in Europe) and will include a character skin inspired by the Twelfth Doctor, as well as five other Doctors, each of their on-screen companions, and the Daleks. As time goes on, more DLC will be released that include many of the most recognizable characters from the past 50 years of Doctor Who. Each skin pack will feature at least six Doctors and will be released concurrently with the broadcast dates of new episodes in Series 8.

"We're constantly looking for new and innovative ways to bring Doctor Who content to our loyal fans. Working collaboratively with Microsoft, we've created an exciting new product which will allow Doctor Who fans to create their own brand new adventures in the heart of the iconic world of Minecraft," said Rikesh Desai, Digital Entertainment and Games Director at BBC Worldwide UK.
