4J Studios could be releasing DLC skin and texture packs at the launch of “Minecraft Xbox One Edition.” According to a report from Culture Mob on April 12, the development team is expected to make a release date announcement soon in regards to the open-world sandbox video game. The studio recently released the TU15 patch for “Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition” and is close to launching the 1.05 title update for “Minecraft PS3 Edition.”

Phil Spencer of Microsoft recently hinted that the release date of “Minecraft Xbox One Edition” will be announced soon. However, the console manufacturer won’t be providing the news. Instead, the proclamation should be made by 4J Studios and Mojang. The two studios teamed up with the release of “Minecraft PS3 Edition” and “Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition.” Both are also collaborating on the PS4, Vita and Xbox One ports.

The last major DLC for the console versions of the popular software product was the city texture pack. The expansion changes the look of the video game to provide players the opportunity to create urban structures. The city texture pack came out last month for both “Minecraft PS3 Edition” and “Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition.” You can find a photo of the downloadable content from the official 4J Studios Twitter page located near the top of this article.

One of the potential DLC packs for “Minecraft Xbox One Edition” may be exclusive. Culture Mob noted that the Xbox 360 version received a skin pack featuring characters from “Gears of War” and “Halo” franchises. A similar expansion could be headed to the upcoming iteration.

4J Studios and Mojang have remained silent in regards to new ports. However, the former company recently posted a picture hinting that the development for “Minecraft PS4 Edition,” “Minecraft Vita Edition” and “Minecraft Xbox One Edition” is moving along. All three versions should already be updated with the latest patches from the PS3 and Xbox 360 ports.
