Minecraft Skin Pack 1 will release alongside 1.7.3 update

By  •  News

Minecraft players have been anxiously awaiting the 1.7.3 update that will drop later this month, but the newly announced Skin Pack DLC will make the update even sweeter. The pack will include 40 skins, including both original skins and skins inspired by other games. Five skins have been announced so far: Creeper, Covenant Grunt, King, Splosion Man, and Trials Man. Although the 1.7.3 update will be free, the Skin Pack will come with a price tag. Fortunately, there will be a free trial of the DLC, so you can view all the skins and take some out for a spin before deciding on a purchase. Once the DLC drops the 8 default Steve skins can also be worn whenever you like. Skins will no longer be changed by default when joining multiplayer, so you be whoever you want, even if somebody else is already using that skin. There is currently no release date or price, but the DLC will drop around the time of the update. So, what characters do you want to appear in the skin pack?

Trials HD riddle solved

Trials HD community member "FatShady" shared the many details behind a collection of Easter Eggs hidden in the title as part of a complex riddle left behind by developer RedLynx' Creative Director, Antti Ilvessuo. By properly identifying and dissecting each and every puzzle piece, it was said that both a question and an answer could be ascertained. Both were revealed today in the video above featuring none other than FatShady, bringing several years of intense searching and debating by the game's community to a head. The final revelation may not be in line with what gamers were hoping for, but the video's still worth watching for anyone who has spent time trying to unlock the game's mysteries these past years.

Antti Ilvessuo had this to say about the riddle's origins and players' undaunted pursuit of the truth of it all: "You could say I created the riddle," said Ilvessuo, "but what I really did was set the rules out. The game was played by the players, the riddle was discovered by them. I just started it. That was one [sic] really the key here."
