Grab the free Minecon 2016 skin pack for Minecraft until October 3

Mojang has released a free pack of character skins for Minecraft to celebrate the upcoming Minecon event this weekend. The pack will be free for all versions of the sandbox game until Oct. 3.

In a blog post, Mojang states:

You even get Alex and Steve skins wearing swishy and spooky Enderman capes, too! The skins will roll out across Pocket and Windows 10 platforms today, with Console Editions following tomorrow. This year's time-limited celebratory skin pack features four biome-themed adventurers: prowl through the treeline as the furtive Forest Fighter; brave blizzards as the intrepid Ice Pioneer; craft the incredible as the meticulous Mesa Artisan; or plumb the depths as the outlandish Ocean Engineer. He's totally subnautical!

In addition, Mojang is throwing in the Minecon 2015 skin pack with the 2016 edition for free as well. Minecon itself is being held from Sept 24-25 in Anaheim, California and we can expect some news about future game updates to come from the event.
