New Minecraft Update Announced

Following the launch of the Boss Update a few weeks back, Mojang is back once again with some pretty exciting news and has announced the latest update coming to its sandbox video game, the 1.0 Ender Update that is said to "help players enjoy their favorite features on the platform of their choice".

Minecraft: Ender Update will be featuring:

  • The majority of the features found in the original PC version
  • Add a third dimension to Minecraft – the End, and its iconic ultimate boss battle, the Ender Dragon
  • Encounter the new Shulker mob, pick up cool purple blocks for building (aptly called purpur), farm chorus plants, and even loot the highly coveted Elytra glider from an End ship
  • 256-block world height
  • The ability to explore the outer islands of the End and its mysterious End Cities
  • The beta label will be taken down
Minecraft: 1.0 Ender Update will be released before the end of this year as a free update on Windows 10 as well as Pocket Edition platforms.
