April Fools': Mojang Announces Minecraft 2.0

By Trevor Ruben , Updated Apr 01, 2013 12:15 PM EDT

The game of never-ending updates is getting a sequel, people. In accordance with game developer and press law, Mojang partook in today's April Fools' festivities by announcing a "sequel" update to the massively popular "Minecraft." Mojang's Blog updated with the news, including an entire change-log supposedly coming with Minecraft 2.0. A couple gems:

"Difficulty setting is now per-world and may never be changed once set."

"Chickens are now classified as a Monster and are no longer a friendly Animal." Mojang finally understands the true nature of chickens, finally. "Chickens do not appreciate being looked at and may get upset," Mojang writes.

"Added floating sky islands." Hmm, there may be another recently released game out there with a similar feature.

And finally, in conjunction with upcoming next-gen consoles, it looks like Mojang is set to compete. Like, really compete:

"Added new graphics setting "Ultra Realistic" with new patent-pending experimental 4D-rendering," Mojang writes, which should help make the new "chase-style 3D camera perspective" all the more exciting.

Minecraft junkies should check out the rest of the post for a quick laugh. A couple "Minecraft" Youtubers joined in with some "Minecraft 2.0" Let's Plays. But don't leave your chickens alone too long.
