Second Minecraft Doctor Who Skin Pack Hits Xbox, As PlayStation Players Get A Free Birthday Skin Pack
Both sides of the Minecraft console divide will get to see some new skins this week as the second Doctor Who skin pack hits Xbox systems and the free Birthday Skin Pack comes to PlayStation.
Tomorrow, the second volume of Minecraft's Doctor Who crossover skin pack will hit the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of the game for $2.99. The pack stars six different Doctors – numbers 10, 8, 7, 5, 3 and 2 – as well as secondary characters like Donna Noble and Captain Jack Harkness. The pack also throws in a whole slew of strange creatures and enemies, including nine different flavors of Cyberman.
For a full list of Doctor Who characters being added in tomorrow's pack, you can check out the announcement over on Xbox Wire.
PlayStation players are getting a little something extra, as well. To celebrate the first birthday of Minecraft: PlayStation Edition, console developer 4J Studios announced that a free Birthday Skin Pack is going live today on PSN. The developer's tweet mentions that today is the release date only in Europe, but based on how these skin packs have rolled out on PlayStation previously, American PlayStation players can expect to see a similar free pack going live in the next few weeks.
Happy 1st Birthday Minecraft: PlayStation Edition! The free Birthday Skin Pack will be available in Europe today when the PSN Store updates!
