Minecraft skin DLC details.

#1JustArtificialPosted 7/7/2012 2:25:17 AM
Skins that have been confirmed so far:
Master Chief (Halo), Sqidman (Original), Scientist Dankle (Splosion Man), Old-School Trials Evolution (Trials Evolution), Wizard (Original), Jack of Blades (Fable 1), Clayton Carmine (GOW3), Banjo (Banjo and Kazooie), Ms Splosion (Ms Splosion), Prisoner (Original), Creeper Man (Original), Splosion Man (Splosion Man), Trials Man (Trials HD), Covenant Grunt (Halo) and King (Original).

Rumoured: Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark)

Speculation: Since the Splosion man series has 3 characters representing the title, I can only speculate that other titles will have at least have a total of 3 characters. For example; Clayton Carmine, Marcus Fenix and Dom Santiago (only guy in GOW with any emotions) OR Damon Baird (because of GOW: Judgement) OR Augustus Cole (popularity).

The DLC will cost 140 MSP! Will include over 40+ skins! And can be trial-ed. And is said to come out some time that update is applied. Hints to an update date, or release date for the DLC, can be found at Major Nelson's Blog: http://majornelson.com/

The DLC CAN be trial-ed, and while it has not been said how or which skins ARE available through the free download, all users will be able to see a number (unknown) of the new skins.

Speculation on the trial-ed skins: I can only assume that the skins that are available through a free trial, would only be the original characters (for example; Creeper, King, Prisoner, etc...). This is based on: Each developer of the title (for example; Fable - Lionhead Studios) would likely receive a form of payment that enables 4J Studios to charge for the DLC that uses trademarked characters.

Major Nelson announces a list of all of the upcoming DLC and offers within the next two weeks, every two weeks. He may also announce the date of the Minecraft update, much like he did when Skyrim has been updated.

Sorry if this has been all said and done, but looking from previous posts from users, I have noticed not many people are aware of what this DLC (not update) includes.

I will update this post when other skins have been confirmed, or if a date has been announced.

Be cool if they had some Castle Crasher dudes.

You're correct, very sorry. It is 160 MSP, I some how confused it for 140 MSP.

In the last link, for the source of a trial version:

"If you want to try before you buy thatís cool too, there will be a trial version of this Skin Pack, enabling you to use some skins for free and letting you see all the other skins available."

And I also forgot to mention, the UPDATE (not DLC) will allow everyone to choose which of the 8 default skins they want to be.

Paying more for my already inferior version of Minecraft. Regretting buying it already.

Can't wait for the 360 version's cumulative cost to go above the cost of a PC license.

$22/27

you don't have to buy the skins.... you have an option not to.. simple as that.. also if 160 msp is too much for you to spend on in-game content.. you should think about quitting gaming as it costs quite a lot when $2 is too much.
