A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

Minecraft is now a wonderful world of color.

The Pattern Texture Pack is available today for all console versions of the popular block-building game. It adds colorful, bright patterns and new, knitted-looking animals. You can apply the textures to old or new Minecraft worlds. The pack cost $1.

Proceed with caution, though. Those are some pretty vibrant colors.

Minecraft is one of the most popular games in the world. Microsoft bought Mojang, the company behind the phenomonen, for $2.5 billion last September. Still, Minecraft continues to sell versions on non-Microsoft platforms, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Vita, iOS, and Android.
