For fans of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, we’ve got some sweet news regarding skins and updates to the game. First off, the 1.7.3 update will be arriving next week and will bring with it an assortment of new features, specifically the ability to choose your own player skin in-game.
There are currently 8 skins available in the current version of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, but your particular outfit is assigned to you based on what player you are (first, second, third, etc.). With this update, you’ll be able to select which you wish to wear, even if someone else wants to wear it as well.
Also, the Minecraft Skin Pack 1 has been announced, which will bring with it 40 new skins for you and your friends to put on in addition to the base 8. These original skins include some familiar Xbox game-related styles, like Creeper man, ‘Splosion Man (‘Splosion Man), Trials Man (Trials Evolution), Covenant Grunt (Halo) and King. (Seen below)
There will also be a few more characters such as Jack of Blades, Clayton Carmine, Banjo, Ms ‘Splosion and Prisoner (seen below)
The update and associated skin pack will be available next week, alongside the 1.7 update.
