This past Friday, 4J Studios treated fans of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition to a free Halloween-themed texture pack which transforms the game’s world into a spooky realm full of ghosts and pumpkins. Players have jumped at the chance to receive a free add-on as the developer announced on Oct 28 that the Halloween Texture Pack was downloaded by more than 1.5 million people in its first three days alone.
As the third standalone texture pack to be released for the console version of Minecraft, the Halloween Texture Pack is the first one to be offered to players for free. The only catch is that fans only have until Nov 3 to download the free DLC before it is gone for good. The Halloween Texture Pack alters the visuals of the popular block-building title so that everything in the game has a horror-themed twist such as hazy skies, ghost mobs, and green lava.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is now available in stores and as a digital download via Xbox Live Arcade. Fans have between now and Nov 3 to pick up the Halloween Texture Pack add-on for free.
