The scariest time of the year is almost upon us! Aside from Minecon, Halloween is the only times that the average person will respect your need to roam the streets dressed as your favourite Minecraft mob. Sad but true.
In true Minecraft tradition, we’ve created a themed skin pack for Minecraft on Windows 10 and Minecraft: Pocket Edition to celebrate. But we’ve done something special this time around. This year’s pack is more about dressing up as your favourite mob – it’s kinda like your Minecraft avatar is about to head out for a trick or treating session, just like you might do on October 30th.
I think this is one of the most creative skin packs we’ve done so far. I hope you enjoy it too!
There are 15 skins in total, and it costs a $0.99 or equivalent. And, hey – even if you don’t download the whole thing everyone can download the Iron Golem and Zombie costumes for free.
Here’s the full list of skins included: Cow costume, Creeper costume, Enderman costume, Ghast costume, Iron Golem costume, Mooshroom Costume, Ocelot costume, Pig costume, Pink sheep costume, Rainbow sheep costume, Skeleton costume, Snow golem costume, Spider costume, Zombie costume.
Update: We’ve released snapshot 15w43c, to fix some bugs & improve the loot tables format.
Update: We’ve released snapshot 15w43b, to fix some crashes and introduce a new feature: subtitles! You can enable them in the sound options. Huge thanks to Ian Hamilton & Game Accessibility Guidelines for design feedback on this feature.
It’s getting colder and colder here in Stockholm, so we’ve built ourselves a little igloo to hold off the incoming frost.
I’d tell you more, but my fingers are freezing off.
New structure in the world.
New “loot table” concept, allows you (or custom map creators) to change the loot inside randomly generated chests, or what mobs drop.
The good folks at 4J have created an entire mash-up pack dedicated to the eeriest time of the year. Not only does this Halloween pack include a whopping 43 skins, a creepy texture pack you can apply to your other Minecraft worlds, and ghostly music, it comes with an entire world that’s guaranteed to scare you senseless. Well, that’s not actually true, but it is kinda freaky. There’s even a rollercoaster that you and your friends can ride on as many times as you like for no additional charge. The ride doesn’t feature boring things like height restrictions or tickets, you’ll be happy to hear.
The Halloween Mashup pack is available on all console versions of Minecraft and costs $3.99. The skins on offer have something of an old-school Hhalloween vibe. Here are some examples: Grim Reaper, Bride of Frankenstein, Wicked Witch, Tree Face, Mad Doctor, Swamp Monster and, of course, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. As with all our packs, you’ll be able to download a few of them for free.
The Halloween Mashup pack is available this Friday, October 23rd on all console versions of Minecraft and costs $3.99, or the equivalent price in your region.
Oh, and just in case any Pocket Edition or Windows 10 Beta players are reading this, don’t worry – you’re getting something equally special to celebrate Halloween. Check the Mojang blog this Friday for more info.
Have a great Halloween and a ghastly time on Minecraft, spooklets!
以前から何度か Mojang のブログで崩壊されていた「Minecraft: Story Mode」がリリースされたらしい。PC, Mac, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, そして iOSに対応しており、Steam などでも販売されてるようだ。恐らく現時点ではリリースされているのが英語版だと思うので、英語でもいい人向けかと。あと普通のマインクラフトではないので間違えないように購入時には注意した方が良いと思う。普通のマイクラと思って購入する人が結構出てしまうのでないかと。
Today is a very special day. Do you know why? No? Well then nevermind, it clearly isn’t important.
Oh, you’d like to know? Well, fine, I guess. It’s a snapshot day. There, happy now? You’ve gone and ruined all the surprise. I might as well just tell you exactly what’s in the snapshot then, and forgo any fun or mystery.
Added two new “treasure” enchantments: “Frost Walker” and “Mending”.
Treasure enchantments cannot be created, only found.
“Frost Walker” enchant leaves a path of frost (new block) behind you, when walking across water.
“Mending” enchant allows items to stay durable, at a cost.
Update: We released a ‘b’ snapshot to fix a crash that affected some users on launch.
This week’s snapshot brings you the ability to smash out of the window of a high tower building, fly past the bad guys who are all shooting you with surprisingly bad accuracy, swoop down and land flawlessly into a strategically placed boat and then paddle away at moderately high speeds with the stolen prize pig in the back.
The first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode is almost here! It’ll be available to download on October 13th which is less than two weeks away!
Minecraft: Story Mode is an episodic game series from Telltale Games. You play as Jesse who (in a first from the studio) can be a male or female hero, and embark on an exciting adventure to save the world while learning about a group of legends known as The Order of the Stone.
Telltale’s games are more about story and characters than building and crafting, but the world of Story Mode will be familiar to anyone who’s played Minecraft. We’ve been working closely with our buddies at Telltale to make it feel as authentic as possible so, whether you’re a veteran crafter or a casual builder, Story Mode will warm the cockles of your hearts.
Minecraft: Story Mode will be available to download on PC, Mac, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, and iOS devices. You’ll also be able to get it on disc at the end of October if you prefer. That version comes with the first episode, and will grant access to the other four as they become available. Minecraft: Story Mode will also be coming to Wii U at a later date.
