New Minecraft Updates Revealed

Following the announcement of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition 3 Year Anniversiry over a month ago, Mojang in collaboration with Microsoft and Sony has officially revealed the latest updates coming to Minecraft, including the Minecon Skin Pack as well as a PlayStation exclusive Pack.

The studio has announced Minecraft v1.17/TU25/CU14 update featuring:

  • Offended by mountains and caverns? Worry not, strange crafter, because now you have the option to customise your super flat worlds so they’re only as vertical as you desire.
  • New blocks! Oak, Spruce, Birch, and Jungle wood types. Fences, Gates, and Doors! Create the log cabin of your dreams with 1.17/TU25/CU14 .
  • A heap of new game options! Change the game mode, difficulty, time, player spawn position, ambient cave sounds, and weather without leaving your game session. Very handy.
  • Classic crafting! Now console players get to craft items just like their PC buddies on Java Minecraft. Some players find this style of creation more satisfying. Check it out.
  • New stuff! Iron Trapdoors, Inverted Daylight Sensors, Book & Quills, and Stained Glass have arrived. Use them wisely, and for good, please.
The company has also announced The Minecon 2015 Skin Pack featuring a bundle of skins and a selection of smart capes, as well as The LittleBigPlanet Mash-up Pack featuring Sackboy, Sackgirl OddSock, Toggle, Swoop, textures, characters and creatures from Media Molecule’s adorable platformer, and pre-build landscape and some catchy tunes.

The Minecraft v1.17 update will be available as a free update July 1st on PS Vita, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, and PS4, while The Minecon 2015 Skin Pack will be available for a limited 15 days. Last but not least, The LittleBigPlanet Mash-up pack will be released exclusively on PS Vita, PS3, and PS4 for £3.29/€3.99.
