A Sneak Peek at Mash-Up Packs for Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition

by William Schwartz


Minecraft Xbox 360 players will be getting a couple of big updates in the foreseeable future.  First off, 4J Studios is putting the finishing touches on Title Update 12, and the highly anticipated update should arrive sometime in August.

Minecrafters will also be getting a Mash-Up Pack option on the Xbox 360, which allows them to use downloadable texture packs.  All of the details about this new feature haven’t been revealed, but 4J says that players will have the ability to try the textures with no time limit, but you won’t be able to save with these trial packs.

Though earlier, the developers had thanked their Twitter followers for helping Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition reach the 5 million sales mark. Apparently that’s a pretty big milestone for the developer, and they were awarded a plaque.  In an image that was posted to their Twitter account, Minecraft Xbox 360 fans have gotten a glimpse at the mash up packs, or at least a menu that has them in plain view.

We’re still waiting on official word from 4J Studios of when to expect these new updates for the game, but it sounds like Title Update 12 could arrive at any day now.
