Fans of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition have known for some time that 4J Studios is working on a new DLC titled the Candy Texture Pack. Gamers were given their first hidden look at the upcoming add-on on April 4 when Xbox Wire announced that Minecraft has now sold over 12 million copies on the Xbox 360 alone.
While the article itself made no mention of the celebratory in-game image which was published alongside the announcement, 4J Studios later revealed on Friday that the screen was actually a hidden tease for the Candy Texture Pack which marks the first time that the content has been shown publically. The developer also confirmed that the secret screen reveal for the upcoming add-on was due to Minecraft Xbox 360 and Xbox One Lead Producer Roger Carpenter.
Texture Pack DLCs for Minecraft allow console players to change the in-game textures for both the game’s environmental blocks as well as its various monster types. The add-on serve as the only method which gamers on Xbox 360 and PS3 can alter the visuals of Minecraft since, unlike the PC version of the game, the console versions of the sandbox creation title doesn’t support the use of mods.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is out now on Xbox Live Arcade. Title Update 14 was recently release for the game and TU15 has already been submitted to Microsoft for release certification. The Candy Texture Pack is now in development but 4J Studios has not yet given the DLC a release date.
