Minecraft is one of those games that we can keep on playing for years, and better still is, there is no need for a sequel to arrive in order for you to continue on. 4J Studios has just released a new update on October 5 for three different Minecraft platforms: the Xbox One, Sony PS4 and the PC. Known as Minecraft Update 33 on the Xbox One, Minecraft Update 1.36 on the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita, and Minecraft Update for the Wii U, there are changes made that will help gamers enjoy the game more.
It does not matter what the latest Minecraft update is titled, all of them will bring about new additions to the title. Players will be able to enjoy new blocks for them to get creative, and the new polar bear mob might also appeal to some.
Apart from new blocks, one will also be able to dabble with new items, new enhancements, new banners, and DLC support, among others. The new blocks that one can enjoy include End Bricks, Beetroot, Grass Path, Frosted Ice, Magma, Nether Wart Block, Red Nether Brick, and Bone Block, while the new items comprise of Beetroot, Beetroot Seeds, and Beetroot Soup. Mmmmm, sounds pretty healthy to us! With beetroots, you can put on your farming clothes and start to cultivate them as a crop. When they are ready to be harvested, then the hard work is more or less over, since they can be “cooked” into some sort of restorative soup.
As for the new enchantments, they would be FrostWalker and Mending. There are also new terrain generation features such as Fossils and Igloos that will certainly feature in newly generated worlds. Sounds for Polar Bear, Witch, Squid, Snowman, Armor Stand, Cow, Horse, Item Frames, Leash Knots and Paintings have also been introduced with the latest patch.
Throw in a Chinese Mythology Mash-Up Pack, and you’ve got something else going for you. The Chinese Mythology Mash-Up pack will be going for $4.99/£3.99 a pop, and it has been described this way, “Journey through epic terrain and find enlightenment in the land of dragons with this Mash-up Pack inspired by the myths and legends of China. Minecrafters get to explore a Chinese Mythology-themed world, with glorious Textures, legendary Skins and enchanting Music. The Pack also includes a themed Battle map exclusive to this Mash-up!”
The latest Minecraft Update will have some differences between the different platforms, as it arrives across multiple consoles such as the PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U. If you have not received the update just yet, it would do you good to be patient since the roll out depends on one’s location. So far, it does seem as though the updates are available to gamers living in North America, Europe, and Japan.
For those who are living in the other regions that have not been listed, just keep calm and carry on playing Minecraft. Don’t you know that good things come to those who wait?
