Following the release of Minecraft version v0.13.0 for Windows 10 computers and mobile devices three months ago, Mojang in collaboration with Microsoft has officially announced the latest update coming to Minecraft, the Overworld Update, offering players "even more of the gameplay elements you’ve been eagerly awaiting".

  • Finally make more advanced mechanical contraptions for your world with additional redstone components. Comparators, repeaters, dispensers, droppers, hoppers, trapped chests and various additional Minecart types will all be available. Invent all the things!
  • Tangle with spooky witches and their huts during your adventures. Witch huts found while exploring swamps also now contain an exciting new feature – their cauldrons will be filled with a randomly generated potion that you can snag for your own if you’re feeling sticky-fingered
  • Speaking of cauldrons, they can now be used to dye your armor an array of beautiful colors
  • Display your coolest loot in your home with Item Frames – or mount your maps on the wall to plan your adventures with a world overview
  • Other gameplay elements new to Pocket Edition and Windows 10 Beta are slime blocks, wearable pumpkins, red sandstone as well as improved chicken jockey mobs
  • Even beyond gameplay elements, we’re also now introducing the ability to import and export maps into the Windows 10 Edition Beta, making it easier for you to share your favorite worlds with friends
  • 8 New achievements exclusive to Windows 10 computers
Minecraft Overworld Update will be available later this month as a free update on PC (Windows 10), Android , iOS, and Windows devices.
