The Mass Effect Mash-Up pack is now live, and rolling out slowly to XBLA for download/purchase! It includes:
  • Mass Effect texture set
  • Mass Effect themed UI
  • 36 Mass Effect Skins
  • 22 music tracks from Mass Effect 3
  • Pre-built Mars Facility world

Pretty awesome! Keep in mind, the roll-out is not instantaneous, and it will continue to roll-out worldwide over the course of the day. The new packs are free to try, but you will need to purchase if you want to save any creations that you have made with it. Not sure where to get it? The Mash-Up is right in the Marketplace, alongside all the other awesome Minecraft goodies XBLA has on offer!

While the first pack is Mass Effect 3 themed, it is likely the first of many mash-up packs for Minecraft that bring different themes to the game. Keep an ear to the ground, and we will keep you updated on the latest packs!

Pricing: $3.99, £2.69 and 3.79 Euro Back to Top

It isn't too often that I'm left speechless by a rollercoaster in Minecraft; there are a ton of good ones, to be sure, but rare and few are the ones that just leave my jaw on the floor, making odd little guttural noises in place of words while I point stupidly at the screen.

This is one of those.

Seriously, nothing I can say about this amazing roller-coaster, made by nuropsych, can possibly do it justice.  You just have to see it for yourself.  Watch it twice, if necessary!

Alright, have you watched it?  Now is the point where most people go "Eh, not bad. Bet they used MCEdit/world edit/voxel sniper/etc".  Not this time.  This massive roller-coaster was built over the course of months on MCX360, then recorded in one shot with no cuts, edits, or alterations.

I just...wow.  Be right back, I'm watching it again.

A new Skin Pack is on the horizon for everyone's favorite console sandbox game!  Until recently, there were not many details known about the still-highly-elusive pack.  However, in recent days, there have been a number of skins revealed, including (but not limited to) Dragon Age skins, and even skins from Borderlands 2!

These skins are going to be available as part of the larger skin pack that will most likely retail at 160MSP, as all previous skin packs have gone for. Of course, this isn't the first time we've seen Minecraft and Borderlands 2 cross paths - remember the creeper caves?  You can check out more details about the new BL2 skins over at FPS General, and as always, keep an ear to the ground right here as we set out sights on the most awesome skin pack yet!

That's right, MCX360 is getting updated very soon!  How soon?  December 19th, 2012!  The latest update will bring the XBLA sandbox game nearly up to speed with the 1.0 release of PC Minecraft, including a ton of new features.

  • Animal Breeding
  • Brewing
  • Experience Points
  • Enchanting
  • Mushroom Biome
  • Nether Fortresses
  • Skin animations

This is only scratching the surface of all the updates coming on the 19th, and let's not forget about all the awesome new avatars, coming soon!

It seems that every version of Minecraft is going through a series of very exciting changes as we approach the end of 2012.  PC Minecraft is edging ever-closer to the Modding API, Pocket Edition adds more blocks, tools, monsters, and features with every iteration, and MCX360 is rapidly closing the gap between itself and PC Minecraft, while adding some special goodies unique to itself.

Don't forget - when MCX360 updates, it will prompt you to patch the game.  Once it does, you are good to go!  Stay tuned as we bring you more exciting updates!  Check out all the update details by clicking here! Back to Top
