Here's what we know about all the upcoming skins and how you unlock them.

While we don't have an official release date for 1.6, we have a pretty good guess.

Generally, updates run for about a month and a half and the last update was on April 28. This leaves room for 1.6 around June 9th. This is especially likely with Eula's banner being scheduled to end on June 8th.

With the Version 1.6 Special Program stream behind us, this leaves plenty of time for the build-up to the next event.
