There’s been a lot of news coming out of Mojang today and a lot of players are going to love this one. Your going to be able to expect a collection of 40 different character skins for the Xbox next week along with the 1.7.3 update to Minecraft. This will allow players to customize their look instead of just the Steve skin that everybody is walking around in.
Some of the skins are based off of other video games too. You can expect to see some skins as a creeper, King and even a Covenant Grunt from the Halo series. Your probably not interested to hear that though and are really wondering, “is it free”?
Sadly, it won’t be free and your going to have to dish out a few Microsoft points for the skin pack.
Play XBLA also released a FAQ:
Q: Will the same two people in a game be able to have the same skins? For example what if I join my friend’s world as Tennis Steve and he has Tennis Steve on too?
A: Yes, we won’t change your skin choice just because someone else has the same one.
Q: Are there even more skins coming in the future?
A: Yes, but we’re not saying which at this time. We’re not even telling you all 40 skins in this pack at this time!
You can read more on the PlayXBLA website, there’s even some skins you can preview!
