Microsoft characters invade Minecraft ... kinda

Posted on July 8, 2012 - 9:40am by Ryan Conway

Microsoft may have no interest in developing a mascot brawler but that doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing a massive crossover featuring characters from Microsoft’s top IPs! Well actually that’s not happening either. But you’ll be able to make your Minecraft avatar look like some of those characters real soon, as Mojang will be launching a character skin DLC pack for the Xbox 360 version of the game.

So, if you’re sick of Steve, why not play as Master Chief? Or Banjo? Or Mr./Ms. Splosion Man? Hell, you can even play as a Creeper, for the ultimate bit of camouflage!

Character skins included in this massive 40 skin pack are:

  • Creeper
  • Master Chief
  • Banjo
  • Clayton Carmine
  • Jack of Blades
  • Splosion Man
  • Ms. Splosion Man
  • Trials Evolution Guy
  • Big Science Scientist
  • Covenant Grunt 

The price is set at 160 MS points although the  launch date hasn't been revealed yet, but I imagine there’ll be plenty of Carmine’s getting massacred by Creepers, Skeletons, and Zombies in no time flat.
