The Minecraft news for the day isn't about a new update beta, but instead is about the new Minecraft Marketplace Spring Sale. From now until April 7, 2021, players can take advantage of mass discounts of up to 33% off on skins, textures, maps, adventures, and much more from the Minecraft Marketplace. Every day, up to three items will also be chosen to be discounts up to 75%. There's even a trailer for the Spring Sale that you can watch below.
Beyond the Spring Sale discounts, Minecrafters can also redeem a free skin pack, Spring Friends, that's available at any point during the sale.
For those who aren't aware, the Minecraft Marketplace is a central storefront where community creators, studios, and Mojang Studios themselves can create and sell all kinds of content. If you want something new for your Minecraft worlds, or want to shake things up, you can head to the Minecraft Marketplace to peruse hundreds of high-quality options. The Minecraft Marketplace is available for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, which is available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC, Switch, Android, and iOS devices.
If you want to take advantage of the Spring Sale, or you know a fellow Minecrafter in your life who'd love to participate, consider picking up some Minecoin gift cards, which is the in-game currency in Minecraft exclusively used inside the Minecraft Marketplace. Minecraft: Bedrock Edition may not support mods, but the Minecraft Marketplace is a great way for any creator to share their creations with the Minecraft community.
