Minecraft has become one of the most popular games in the days of our time. The pixel world construction and survival video game is now one of the most beloved video game because of the freedom it offers to the player while exploring the infinite universe of the game, because of the large variety of options the player has and most probably, the funny graphics help with the popularity of the game, in spite of the graphics enhanced mods for the more picky ones. As far as we know, all you have to do in order to dig a tunnel or start a foundation is to punch. And with so much popularity, it was clear that even Minecraft had to follow popular beliefs so the officials speaking in connection to this matter have been happy to announce female character to be featured on Minecraft.
The officials have made a statement in which they have revealed the newest improvement to the world on Minecraft. According to them, starting with Wednesday Minecraft fans all over the world will be able to download a new character of female gender, the red haired woman named Alex. Until now, the only available character of the video game was a man named Steve who wore a blue shirt. But as Eve quickly came out to join Adam in the garden of Eden, Alex will now be able to greet the new comers to the Minecraft universe as well.
An official representing Minecraft has emphasized that the blue shirted Steve is one of the most beloved characters and a well known minecrafter.
“But jolly old Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of our playerbase. For that reason, we’re giving all players [the] opportunity to play with an Alex skin instead.”
Owen Hill, an official talking on behalf of Mojang has written within a post on a blog.
The introduction of the new Alex skin to Minecraft is not the onyl surprise Mojang has prepared for their fans. Users who enjoy the game via a PlayStation will be able to download a Simpons themed pack as well.
Owen Hill has announced the upcoming Simpons pack and has added that one of the most beloved characters from the TV series will be featured, including Dewey Largo, Groundskeeper Willie and Principal Skinner.
Such an option is already available for the Xbox players and it has been so since February, as Microsoft bought Mojang and started to implement some changes.
