Minecraft – Female Avatar Now Available

Female player avatar added to Minecraft

Minecraft now includes a range of default female avatar options thanks to eight new skins, they include:

  • Skin
  • Hair Colours
  • Clothing
  • Costume Styling

The range was added via a new software update and each is named Alex, you could say it’s friendly competition to the default male avatar Steve.

Mojang’s Owen Hill explains that “When most players begin their Minecraft adventure there aren’t many looks to choose from, in fact, you only get to play as our blue-shirted friend. Now, everyone loves Steve, he’s probably the most famous minecrafter in the world and has excellent stubble. But jolly old Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of our playerbase. 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; she actually looks a bit like fellow Mojang employee Jens from certain angles.”
