Minecraft PS3 Update Adds New Texture Packs and Skins

Minecraft PS3 Update Adds New Texture Packs and Skins(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – After many months of waiting, Minecraft’s TU 14 was finally released last week, and it brought many new features to the game, including new character skins and texture packs.

According to the PlayStation blog, “Skin Pack 1” is aimed towards “hardcore PlayStation fans” and includes  famous faces such as Nathan Drake from Uncharted, Sly Cooper, and characters from Heavy Rain and Killzone.

The second pack, “Battle and Beasts”, features cavemen, koalas, an octopus, and a Cleopatra look-a-like, making this the most “eclectic pack” currently available.

TU 14 also brought the City Texture pack for those who prefer a more modern look and the Plastic Texture pack which makes things look very “plasticy”.

Other added features in the update include emeralds, ender chests, Zombie villagers, the ability to dye wolf collars, and potions, among other things.

TU 14 launched on March 26th for the Xbox 360 and on March 27th for the PS3.
