Minecraft alex pack

New skins and achievements in Minecraft

Players on all consoles will get the new “Alex” skin pack on Wednesday. Mojang wants to represent the diversity of it’s players.

“Everyone loves Steve. But jolly old Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of our playerbase. For that reason, we’re giving all players 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.”

Achievement hunters will be pleased to hear that there will be an update for the Xbox 360 with an extra 30 achievements bringing it’s total gamerscore to 1000 with some new tunes added along with the update.

“We’re also bringing a bundle of new music tracks to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. After this update there’ll be more of C418’s plinky plonky goodness in-game. Nice.”

Playstation owners will be getting The Simpsons skin pack this week which is already available on the Xbox.
