When most players begin their Minecraft adventure on consoles, there aren’t many skins to choose from. In fact, there’s just Steve and a few variants of him. We like Steve as much as the next crafter, but he doesn’t really represent the diversity of our player base.
That’s why we’ve introduced Alex — she has slightly thinner arms than Steve, but plays exactly the same way as he does. Now, all new players get to choose from eight Steve skins and eight Alex skins, as well as any extra DLC they’ve purchased. This update is completely free, and available for all PlayStation platforms.
Oh, and the other thing, we’re also bringing a more familiar set of skins this week: The Simpsons, and a bunch of their closest friends, enemies, and acquaintances are coming to PlayStation. The pack includes the whole family along with Principal Seymour Skinner, Groundskeeper Willie, and everyone’s favourite… Dewey Largo… you know who he is, right?*
There are loads more characters in the pack, too.
