Microsoft has announced more than 20 million copies of Minecraft sold for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One game consoles. It's the three-year anniversary of Minecraft: 360 Edition's public release, and Mojang wants to help gamers celebrate: by giving away free colorful skins.




Gamers can download the 1st Birthday Skin Pack, 2nd Birthday Skin Pack, and 3rd Birthday Skin Pack, with the most recent edition including skins created inspired by Mojang employees. This is the first time the earlier skin packs can be downloaded and used by Xbox One gamers.



"To celebrate this monumental occasion, we're giving the 20 million players on Xbox 360 and Xbox One a heap of colorful skins," according to a birthday blog post. "From today until the 17th of May three packs will be available to download for free."
