4J Studios has opened up a little further on Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’s Update 8.

Among the changes are fixes to the game’s autosave feature, occasional freezing failures and some other minor bits and bobs.

“We will hopefully be announcing the fix list next week – looking like around 40 fixes at the moment,” tweeted 4J on Friday.

The patch will be released in response to a number of player complaints, including the fact that setting your online status to Away prevents autosaves from working, guest players without building rights cannot fire arrows and a bunch of freezing issues.

4J Studios had previously detailed some of Update 8’s fixes. You can find them here. A full list is promised soon.

Beyond that the developer is also working on a new skin pack. “Skin Pack 4 is in progress, but a pack of community requested skins sounds like a good idea after that,” said 4J on Twitter. 

Gearbox and Ubisoft-themed skins were also mentioned.

Am hopeful that the community-requested skins will be a precursor to community-requested texture packs and perhaps even selected user-created expansions as well.

Would like some more challenging achievements added to really encourage some of the new mechanics (e.g. Craft a Golden Apple/10 Snow Golems)

Finally, an increase in area, upwards as well as outwards. I want a bigger sky palace!

Im looking forward to texture packs. Would be better to look at for sure. Still impressed that 4J are supporting this game this long after release. Im even more impressed I've stuck at a game this long too.

I don't get why #4 is so bent on getting a whelming boss fight. It's not over or under whelming, it's just... whelming. It's not really hard, it's not really intense, and it's mildly boring.

Still, it's a nice feature though, but there's really no major rewards -- a lot of experience and a Dragon Egg that doesn't even have a use on the PC version. :/

I agree with #8. I'm never gonna get the urge people have for an end in this kind of games.

Ender Dragon is boring. Period. If you know so much about it, you probably already beat him on PC, so shut it.

Community created skins pack? I so want Sky the Kids skin o.o then my likeness to butter will be complete... and maybe the pigs will not be my enemy after all, but really, they where squids in disguise...

I don't really care for skin packs. what I do want however is just for them to further the game towards pc and TEXTURE PACKS.

caps rage. the prospect is just too exciting

they should make a feature that lets you create you own character.
