As if that wasn’t exciting enough, the skin pack for Jesse, Olivia, Axel, Petra and other characters from Minecraft Story Mode is now available and free for a week. There are 27 skins in total and they’re all free for the first week on iOS, Xbox, Xbox One, PlayStation (excluding Japan) PC, Mac orWindows 10!

After the first week, the skin pack will cost $2.99, but, as with any skin pack released, some of the skins will remain free forever: in this case, you can play as any of the six available Jesse skins for the grand total of zero bucks. As Mojang aren’t allowed to give the pack away for free on PlayStation in Japan it will be discounted to a low price.
