Minecraft Festive Mash-Up Pack Launches Wednesday For Xbox One And Xbox 360 Editions, Contains New Skins And Music
'Tis the season in Minecraft. Microsoft announced this week that the Xbox One and Xbox 360 editions of the sandbox game will be getting access to the Festive Mash-Up Pack starting Wednesday.
When it launches on December 10, the holiday-themed texture pack will run players $2.99. Inside, the add-on contains a seasonal texture pack to make decorating your Minecraft worlds for the holidays that much easier. It also includes 36 new skins – including players in winter jackets, elves, Santa and what looks to be a cross-country skier – and even new music from Minecraft composer C418.
According to the reveal blurb, the Minecraft Festive Mash-Up Pack will be coming later to platforms other then the two Xboxes, but this week it looks like Microsoft players will be getting first dibs on the cheery add-on.

This year has been a big one for Minecraft. The game finally made its way to next gen consoles, launching on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PS Vita in the span of just over a month. Microsoft also finalized a $2.5 billion purchase of Mojang, the developer behind the game. Minecraft isn't done expanding just yet, though. The Minecraft: Pocket Edition for mobile phones was confirmed to be getting a port for Windows Phone users, inching the game ever closer to being available on almost any platform imaginable.
