Get yourself a FREE Minecraft Halloween texture pack!
With Halloween just one day away, you maybe haven't done much to get into the spooky mood. Fear not, as the folks at Microsoft are giving us a free Minecraft texture pack to get us in the spirit of Halloween!
Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners can get their hands on a Halloween texture pack, totally free, for Minecraft. You can build a Halloween themed spook house or turn your existing creations into a ghastly scare fest!
Microsoft recently purchased Mojang, the developers responsible for bringing the block building phenomenon to the masses. Sony Playstation owners should fear not, as the pack is scheduled to be released on Playstation consoles (including the Playstation Vita handheld console).
How to get your free texture pack
Getting your free texture pack is so simple, even the living dead could do it!
Simply connect to the Xbox Live Store on your Xbox 360 and search for Minecraft Add-ons. Locate the Halloween pack and give it a download. For Xbox One users, you can find the Halloween texture pack by searching the "Add-ons" section of the Store.
You can also sign into your Xbox Live account on a PC and download the add-on.
Once you have downloaded the add-on pack from either the store or the website, simply install the pack (should be done automatically) and load the game. The Halloween texture pack will be unlocked and ready to use!
