The upcoming third-person shooter for Xbox LIVE Arcade known as Hybrid seems to be pandering a bit. The studio behind the moderately anticipated release, 5th Cell, has partnered with Mojang to offer exclusive Minecraft themed helmets to players who reach level 20 in their game, based on the faction they choose.
Choose one faction, you get the Creeper head helmet, and choose the other, and you get the Minecraft Steve head helmet.
The helmet system in the game is sort of your way of customizing your character and making it yours. Other helmets announced are the awesome looking Victory helmet and the Bag of Shame helmet, for winning and losing matches, respectively.
Minecraft players will also be able to use Hybrid themed avatars in Minecraft. Whether this will only be for Xbox players or not remains to be answered.
Hybrid, which utilizes Valve’s source engine, is set to release August 8, 2012 on Xbox Live Arcade, one week after Minecraft’s much awaited update 1.3 on PC.
