Minecraft Pocket and Windows 10 Edition receives a small update and a spooky new skin pack.

It’s that time of year again — Mojang has revealed yet another spooky skin pack, Campfire Tales, as part of their Minecraft content for this year’s Halloween. The Halloween themed skin pack will feature 16 scary new character skins that will be available for both Minecraft Pocket and Windows 10 Edition at a cost of $1.99.

The Campfire Tales skin pack will include: the jealous Headless Haunter, the vengeful Lumbering Jack, the obsessive Sea-Swallowed Captain, the hasty confectioner Crisp, the cursed Well Wisher, Rancid Anne, The Sham, Ol’ Diggy and the Risen Rose.

The Minecraft Twitter page has been revealing some twisted tales about each character since the start of October. You can view all these twisted tales here.

Alongside the Campfire Tales skin pack, Mojang has released the 0.15.10 update for Minecraft Pocket and Windows 10 Edition. While the update is rather small, it focuses heavily on fixing bug-related issues such as MINECON 2016 capes, which can now be obtained for a limited time only from the Google Play store for free using the code “MINECON2016”. It also fixes a number of VR related issues.

For those interested, the full change log can be found below:

New Features:

  • Campfire Tales skin pack!


  • Fixed mirror texture issues.
