The Simpsons come to Minecraft this week

Plus, eight Alex skins available at no additional cost

Hi there everyone. Today, I have two announcements for all skin fans on PlayStation. First, meet Alex!

When most players begin their Minecraft adventure on consoles, there aren’t many skins to choose from. In fact, there’s just Steve and a few variants of him. We like Steve as much as the next crafter, but he doesn’t really represent the diversity of our player base.

That’s why we’ve introduced Alex – she has slightly thinner arms than Steve, but plays exactly the same way as he does. Now, all new players now get to choose from eight Steve skins and eight Alex skins, as well as any extra DLC they’ve purchased. This update is completely free, and available for all PlayStation platforms.

Oh, and the other thing: we’re also bringing a more familiar set of skins this week: The Simpsons, and a bunch of their closest friends, enemies, and acquaintances are coming to PlayStation.

The pack includes the whole family along with Principal Seymour Skinner, Groundskeeper Willie, and everyone’s favourite… Dewey Largo… you know who he is, right?* There are loads more characters in the pack too.

The Simpsons Skin pack will be available for £3.29/€3.99 from this Wednesday, 29th April.

*He’s the music teacher dude.

OH MY BLOCK I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT THE SIMPSONS IS COMING TO MINECRAFT! IT TAKES A LONG TIME FOR THINKING THAT THE SKIN PACK WOULD COME TO PLAYSTATION CONSOLES! THANK MOJANG AND 4J! :D

Any chance the Doctor Who stuff will ever come to PlayStation Minecraft?

Cool! Hope to see a sale on this soon, I feel I need to experience what the hype is all about but I’m really not into micro management :D

What needs to be addressed is the Cross-buy for DLC. Why is DLC cross-buy between PS3 and Vita, but not for PS4?

Agreed 100% with this! I don’t use my PS3 much anymore so I feel it’s kind of unfair I still have to buy every skin pack or whatever twice if I want it on Vita and PS4?

How hard is it for things to be cross-buy across all 3 of the platforms? A lot of other entire games have that option from release, why not something as big as Minecraft?

So I assume this will coincide with a new patch? Will this include new features, or just costume updates?

Will we ever see the Star Wars skins on Playstation, or are they going to be Xbox exclusive?

Course not, just releasing on PS later.

yay!

This might be a stupid question, but how do you get the free Alex skins?

I installed the update, but can’t see them. Are they available yet?
