“Minecraft” may be set back a bit with the attention focused on “Pokemon Go” though there are still a lot of gamers hooked up to the game. Mojang has quietly rolled out several updates, including that VR version which has so far elicited good reviews.

The latest update for “Minecraft” pocket edition was 0.15.7, a small update that included new texture packs and bug fixes for both PC and VR versions. The new patch thus perks up the game resolution textures, offering a sharper display that many will likely laud.

The downside of it is that “Minecraft” pocket edition gamers will have to shell out $2.99 to get it. Depending on the stand of gamers on payment for updates, a look at the game store to see the improvements could help them decide.

Forward to 0.16 Boss update

Looking forward, there is another update for “Minecraft” pocket edition – the 0.16 Boss update. The patch is believed to be coming from the third quarter of 2016 and will include a lot of improvements and bug fixes for better gameplay.

Neurogadget points out that among the things to expect include monuments, bosses and beacons plus perhaps more. Mojang is busy working on it though it is giving gamers an opportunity to pitch in.

“Minecraft” helpers are currently being enlisted and gamers who want in can do so via the Google Play Store and sign up to become a tester. This gives them a free ticket to try out the upcoming changes, also give their take on what further improvements Mojang could consider adding.

To date, there seems to be a lot in store like the new beasts that could see a three-headed “Wither” or an “Elder Guardian”, not to mention options for Slash commands. Mojang seems bent on releasing something big with the said update, something that could very well be unveiled at MineCon which will take place from Sept. 24 to 25 in California.
