Mojang and 4J Studios have released a new update for the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft a few days ago to coincide with the Xbox 360 version one year anniversary. Two new skin packs: the Battle ‘N’ Beasts pack and the Minecraft 1st Birthday pack are also available to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace. The Battle ‘N’ Beasts pack DLC costs 160 Microsoft Points and the 1st Birthday pack DLC is free. This update mostly includes gameplay tweaks and bug fixes.
