Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 13, First Texture Pack Now Available For Download
Less than two weeks after Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 13 was handed over to the Xbox Live certification team, for the free patch's final round of testing before worldwide deployment, Microsoft and 4J Studios have announced that Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 13 is now available for download via Xbox Live.
The latest Minecraft Xbox 360 title update didn't quite make it to Xbox Live before the end of September, but we don't expect many Minecraft Xbox 360 players are going to be complaining on Wednesday, now that Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 13 is available for download around the globe. Fans have eagerly anticipated the release of Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 13, even before 4J Studios confirmed they had completed developmental work on the title update last month, and we wouldn't be shocked if the combined traffic from Minecraft Xbox 360 players and those hoping to play GTA Online give Xbox Live a few hiccups throughout the day.
In addition to the release of Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 13, 4J Studios also confirmed that the Minecraft Xbox 360 Plastic Pack is now available for purchase via the Minecraft Store and Xbox Live Marketplace, giving players their second optional Minecraft Xbox 360 overhaul since the game received texture and mash-up pack support in Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 12. Until this week, the only option available to Minecraft Xbox 360 players was the Minecraft Xbox 360 Mass Effect Mash-Up pack released on September 4.
Unfortunately, there's still no word on when the next Minecraft Xbox 360 texture pack -- currently being called the Natural Pack by 4J Studios -- will be available for purchase/download. When asked if there was a timetable yet for the Natural Pack's release, 4J Studios told one Minecraft Xbox 360 fan that it would be "a while" before there as any new information about the debut of the Minecraft Xbox 360 Natural Pack.
