"The FREE Halloween Texture Pack is rolling out now! get it before 3rd November and you have it forever," said the developers in their official 4J Studios Twitter account.
4J Studios added that the free Halloween Texture Pack for "Minecraft" Xbox 360 is a time-based offer, and will not be available after the November 3 deadline.

'Minecraft' 1.7.2 Update Gets Fans Excited
After releasing the "Minecraft" 1.7 and 1.7.1 updates last week, Mojang has released another one, this time the "Minecraft" 1.7.2, though it is still a pre-release version.
Fans are already trying out the new "Minecraft" update, and already, there are fans who have been ecstatic about the new update, as they raved about the update in the official Minecraft Forums.
"I found some rather large air pocets that had generated. Found them when I was mapping out an area," said Minecraft Forums user Sculldemon.
"1.7 looking sweet--not too sure about the graphics for the tree leave textures, but I'm sure I'll grow to love it," said Phoxesden.
"I'm lovin' 1.7.2 so far happiest moment is the stained glass panes and blocks and 2 new types of woods to use on some house building," said R3SET."
While there are some users who have noted some missing features that they still feel must have been added, such as the modding api, overall, "Minecraft" 1.7.2 has been received with gusto and anticipation.
"Minecraft" 1.7.2 is the latest update, which addresses crash concerns and compatibility with programs and PC types. Overall, the 1.7 update brings new world generation like double the number of biomes, new blocks including wooden blocks, packed ice, stained glass, and even portals, maps, fishing, overhauled achievements and statistics, improved mechanics for multiplayer gaming, better chat and command features, and a lot of bug fixes.
