New music, achievements and skins for Minecraft

When most players begin their Minecraft adventure there aren’t many looks to choose from… you only get to play as  Steve – the most famous minecrafter in the world, and has excellent stubble.

But Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of the Minecraft playerbase. So they’re giving all players the opportunity to play with an Alex skin instead. She brings thinner arms, redder hair, and a ponytail. She actually looks a bit like Jens from certain angles.

Players on all consoles will get the Alex skins pack for free this Wednesday.


Playstation players are getting another skin pack this week. The Simpsons, and a bunch of their their closest friends, enemies, and acquaintances are on the way. Download it starting Wednesday!!

Xbox 360 users get extra achievements and bonus tunes!

Until now, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition has included more achievements than 360 Edition. This update will add 30 new achievements to the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft, boosting the potential gains to a smooth 1000G.

Also, a bundle of new music tracks are coming to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. After this update there’ll be more of C418’s plinky plonky goodness in-game. Nice. What is your favorite in-game Minecraft track? I really like “Are we there now” which is much thanks to my son because he is always playing it and making Steve dance to it! 🙂
