What's new

Halloweek begins as Spooky Bundle haunts consoles!

Yeah, I know: Halloweek isn’t actually a word. But hopefully this horrifying misuse of language is unsettling enough to get you in the mood for a week of creepy fun!

We’re kicking things off with the launch of the Spooky Bundle for Console Edition today: no tricks here, just three seasonal treats all rolled into one - the Halloween Mash-up, the Halloween Battle Map and the Campfire Tales Skin Pack. Check out the chilling trailer above and witness a trio of grisly delights, guaranteed to haunt your dreams FOREVER*!



The Halloween Mash-Up features a custom-built world for you to haunt, replete with a uniquely terrifying texture pack. You can get into the spirit of things by donning one of our Campfire Tales skins: from mythical monsters to horrible hauntings and other strange sightings, this supernatural skin pack is the ideal way to frighten friends this Halloween. And if your desire for devilry is not yet sated, try out the wicked new map for the Battle Mini Game - and give your friends a real nightmare!

Creeping onto Console in the shadow of this uncanny pack is Battle Map Pack 4, featuring three magnificent new maps. Slink through the deserted snowbound science base of Dig, slog it out amid the over-sized furniture of Shrunk and hoedown before you showdown in the dusty Frontier.


We’re also launching the Builder’s Pack today: a superb starter pack for anyone interested in becoming a master of construction on Console Edition. It bundles together six impressive packs: Biome Settlers Skin Pack 1, Candy Texture Pack, Cartoon Texture Pack, Pattern Texture Pack, Plastic Texture Pack and Greek Mythology Mash-up. Cor!


This isn’t the end of the sinister surprises! We’ll be hosting a special livestream on Halloween itself in which our devs unleash the terrifying new mobs they’ve created with 0.16’s Add-Ons support! You’ll be able to download them for yourself, too!

And do you remember the spooky yarns we put out on Twitter? Watch out for our Campfire Tales unholy resurrection in video form - as narrated by Logdotzip!
