The lights are on
Minecraft enthusiasts can express their love of zombies with the latest skin pack. Seven character models based off of Telltale's The Walking Dead will be available shortly.
Lee, Kenny, Molly, Christa, and Omid make up the majority of the skin set. Two generic walkers are also added to the mix – one male and one female. Good luck telling which one is which.
The new skin pack might be a fun way to lure in The Walking Dead fans as well, who are undoubtedly in need of an undead fix until season two launches.
Skin Pack 5 will be available for the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft on July 31 for 160 Microsoft Points from the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Our TakeWhere’s Clementine? It seems like an oversight that she was left out.
As for the represented models: Kenny’s moustache, Lee’s beard, and Molly’s face mask make them recognizable. If I wasn't aware there were Christa and Omid designs, I’d barely recognize them. Still, this is a fun set of skins that Minecraft players are sure to enjoy.
I knew I had been saving those MS Points for a reason.
Uhh... Lily? Larry? Clementine? Ben? They seem much more significant then Christa, Omid, and two faceless zombies.
No Clementine? Seriously?
First, this is bloody brilliant...except for the lack of Clementine, who is the most memorable character in the game. The entire cast of the TellTale game was phenomenal. So much depth and life in all of the characters. You truly learn to love (or hate) them. Unlike a certain AMC television show. Which brings me to...
Second, let us all take a moment and be thankful they're not characters from that God awful AMC television show (that ruined a life-long favorite genre for me). Cheers to all the "band-wagoneers".
*can't wait to read the hate comments after that one. But the truth hurts doesn't it?
Everyone needs to remember that the Xbox 360 version is 4J Studios and the guidelines incorporated by Microsoft pave the way for pricing and such on Xbox Live. I'm fairly certain (with the amount of $$$ the studio(s) have cashed in on Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition) they'd be quite content with releasing the skins for free, but alas, Microsoft is a money hungry beast.
Out of all the characters, why Molly? I would've played as any of the 400 Days characters instead. I freaking hated her.
No Mark!? ffs he's my favourite character. How can you have WD minecraft skins without Mark??
Get with the program guys seriously.
I wish Clem was included.
We see Lee and Kenny and Molly in the picture...
Hope see others too...like Clem...
I'm saving my MS points for texture packs.
