4J Studios has provided an explanation as to why more specific details have not yet been revealed for the new mash-up pack feature that will be introduced in the upcoming TU12 patch for “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.” According to a message from the company’s official Twitter page on Aug. 20, a spokesperson mentioned that legal issues are preventing the studio from sharing any new details.
4J Studios is waiting for several authorizations before the first official mash-up pack could be shown off. You can take a look at the comments from the spokesperson below (courtesy of the official 4J Studios Twitter):
Just waiting for some legal sign-offs, and then we'll be able to show the first mash-up pack.
Mash-up packs feature a variety of different content types that will aesthetically transform “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” into a different looking game. The bundle includes a skin pack, texture pack, music, themed world and user interface. The DLC will feature a trial version in which players can try out the new contents. However, they won’t be able to save progress unless they purchased the full product.
The TU12 patch is required in order to use mash-up packs. A release date for the title update has not yet been announced as it is still undergoing the certification testing procedure at Microsoft.
“Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” was released for the Xbox 360 in 2012. You can check out several screenshots featuring the console port of “Minecraft” in the slideshow on the top left-hand side of this article.
