Minecraft Battle And Beasts Skin Pack 2 Announced For Xbox 360

Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition developer 4J Studios has revealed a new skin pack for the open-world building game. Battle and Beasts Skin Pack 2, sequel to the DLC released this spring, will provide a new set of characters for players to become.

Battle and Beasts 2 provides a range of skins inspired by warriors and animals. The former category includes a musketeer, a highlander and a conquistador. A walrus, dolphin and fox are some examples of the beast skins. You can see the full collection in the screenshots below.

It's been a busy week for 4J Studios. A couple days ago, they released the Plastic texture pack for Minecraft. Plastic is the first texture pack released for the 360 edition. It provides a brighter, cleaner look to many of the visuals in the game. It should be a hit with those of you who have gotten sick of Minecraft's visuals.

This week also brought Title Update 13 for the game. This patch aimed to fix leaky buckets, stupid zombies and other common bugs in the game. Here are the patch notes:
