Beasts Battle in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
Skin Packs to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition are like song packs to Rock Band. The chances are that they'll eventually stop but nobody knows when that will be. It certainly won't be in the immediate future as today sees the release of the eighth skin pack: "Battle & Beasts". The DLC brings 45 warrior and animal skins to players who have already grown bored of the other 274 DLC skins that have been released since the game's arrival a year ago. Here's a full list of the 45 characters:

• Enderman in a Suit
• Zombie in a Suit
• Cave Spider in a Suit
• Chicken in a Suit
• Zebra
• Panther
• Warthog
• Mandrill Baboon
