Battle is a mini-game within Minecraft where players go head-to-head in a premade PvP-style arena. Players must gather weapons, stay alive, and fight other players while following a predetermined set of rules. Four players can play per match if using split-screen on a single console, or 8 players can play per match if playing online. There is also a DLC (Downloadable Content) for $2.99. This DLC adds 3 maps that one can enable if they are hosting their own match.
