The Very Last Minecraft Update For some Consoles has Gone Live

If you’re a Minecraft player then this new will mark the end of an era for you, as the last-ever Minecraft update for last-generation consoles has officially released.

If you still like to pore over the expansive and ever-changing landscape of the game through your Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita or Wii U, then you won’t be seeing anything new added in from now on.

Over on Twitter, 4J Studios has been lamenting the end of an era and asking Minecraft fans to do the same. Honestly, it’s pretty tear-jerking to see how many people adored this game on console, and its influences.

The last update – which is available for the older consoles – has now launched, and to be fair, it’s going out with a bang.

The Nightmare Before Christmas pack is the perfect pre-Christmas game, and the best way for you to say goodbye to future Minecraft updates on your older consoles.

The official Minecraft website confirms the pack will include 40 skins, along with a texture pack. It also includes “a world full of some truly nightmarish redstone puzzles to solve, all scored to the excellent soundtrack from the movie!”

It’s available on all Minecraft platforms that have the Minecraft Marketplace.
