Female player characters coming to Minecraft on console
Normally when you start a game of Minecraft, the only person you’re able to play as is Steve, the blue-shirted man everyone knows and associates with Minecraft. This isn’t really fair for anyone who wants to play as a girl, and Mojang realise this. That’s why on Wednesday 29th April, female player skins are coming to the game in the form of Alex.
“Jolly old Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of our playerbase,” Mojang developer Owen Hill said. “For that reason, we’re giving all players opportunity to play with an Alex skin instead. She brings thinner arms, redder hair, and a ponytail.”
Alex was already in the PC version of Minecraft, but this will be her first adventure on console.
