You’ve probably read the Hunger Games book or seen the movie. If you haven’t, then you still might be interested in the Hunger Games Mod for Minecraft. It borrows elements directly from the books and movie and places them in the Minecraft world.
Players spawn in the ‘arena’ with 23 other players. Everybody can kill each other using whatever weapons they have available, and players can choose to band together for survival, or roam around as a lone wolf.
The gameplay will be very familiar to those who know the Hunger Games universe. Players can fight for control of the Cornucopia, which is a building filled with valuable resources right next to where players spawn. While lots of players are killed during the initial melee at the start of the game, the end of the game takes a little longer, as players begin hunting around the map for individual opponents.
The Hunger Games Mod is surprisingly difficult. Players can be killed in so many different ways. Eating berries will kill you, for example, and TNT randomly falls from the sky onto players’ heads. That’s not all that falls out of the sky: players can also receive special care packages from sponsors. These packages can be filled with anything from arrows to food.
Rounding out the list of authentic Hunger Games features is the list of names. Players compete with 23 other people, and they’re all named after the real tribunes in the book. You’ll encounter Katniss, Peeta, Rue, and other popular NPCs.
Whether you want to team up with a group of NPC friends and rule the arena, or you prefer to pick off your opponents one by one as a lone wolf, the Hunger Games Mod for Minecraft allows players to live their Hunger Games dream. If you’re a fan of the books and movie, you’ll love this mod. And even if you’re unfamiliar with the Hunger Games world, it’s an entertaining survival mini-game.
