Minecraft Xbox 360 Halloween Skin Pack released, money goes to charity

Contains 55 player skins donated by top devs.

The Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Halloween Skin Pack has just launched on Xbox Marketplace, with every penny of its price-tag going to charity.

The add-on contains 55 character designs and costs just 160 Microsoft Points (about £1.36).

Proceeds will be split between Child's Play, Macmillan Cancer Support, Sands Lothians (which offers support to bereaved parents) and Block by Block (a project to engage young people in designing public spaces that uses Minecraft as a tool).
