Minecraft 1.20 update will add seven new default skins

Alex and Steve have company, as Mojang is adding new default Minecraft skins to make the blockbuster game a little more diverse.


It has been many years since Minecraft released and some are wondering where the game can possibly go from here. Mojang answered some of those questions during Saturday's Minecraft Live presentation, unveiling the upcoming Minecraft 1.20 update. This update is designed to push Minecraft forward with self-expression in mind by adding seven new default skins.

Alex and Steve's skins will be joined by new default skins that aim to represent a wider range of people. Three of those new skins are Sunny, Efe, and Noor, who first debuted in trailers for Minecraft: The Wild Update. The other new skins are Makena, Kai, Ari, and Zuri. They'll all be available through the Minecraft Launcher and Dressing Room.

"These skins are a wonderful collaboration within the company," 3D Artist Chi Wong said during Minecraft Live. "We really care about feeling represented in Minecraft and I think with these skins, we did that."

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
