Minecraft on the Xbox turns 4 today and to celebrate, Microsoft is giving away some goodies to all its fans on either the Xbox 360 or the Xbox One.

To commemorate the milestone, the company is offering up 4 Skin Packs to spice up your game. All packs represent the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th birthdays of the game. We understand that outside of the 4th Skin Pack, the others are just an added bonus and will only be available for download until May 16, 2016.

We’re not certain how long the 4th Skin Pack will be available for, but it is not forever. Here’s what Microsoft had to say via its Xbox News outlet:

It’s hard to believe it’s been four years since Minecraft arrived on Xbox consoles, and we’ve enjoyed every minute of it. We all know birthdays call for a celebration and we want to make sure that you can dress up for the occasion, so starting today through May 16 you’ll be able to download the 4th Birthday Skin Pack for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and Minecraft: Xbox One Edition for free.

It still feels like yesterday Minecraft was first released on the Xbox 360, and this is probably due to how successful the game has become since then — and how much successful it still is now. This is a game that is on almost all major platforms with players of every age.
