Skins Packs in MCPE
There are currently two default skins in the game:
Mojang has released official skin packs containing a variety of skins, mostly based on one or more themes (eg. Star Wars, Marvel, etc). These can be either free or paid. There are eight skin packs: City Folk, Town Folk, Biome Settlers 1, Holiday Skin Pack 2015, Halloween Costumes, Journey To The West, Redstone Specialists, and Minecraft: Story Mode.
It is also possible to upload a custom skin into the game if the player chooses to do so. They can do so using the Minecraft: Skin Studio Encore App, Skin builder, or Skinseed. They can also download a skin file from the internet, save it in their images, and access it through the game.
- Skins were originally planned for Update 0.10.0, but were postponed as they were too buggy.
- Before Update 0.11.1, there was a bug where Skin Packs could not be purchased.
- The Halloween Costumes came in 0.12.3, the Biome Settlers 1 in 0.13.0, the Holiday Skin Pack 2015 in 0.13.1, the Journey To The West in 0.13.2, the Redstone Specialists in 0.14.0, and the Minecraft: Story Mode in 0.14.1.
- The Minecraft: Story Mode is free and it was released on the same day Episode 5 was released.
