'Minecraft: Console Edition' News & Holiday Update: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Others to Receive Major Patch in December
Wait until late December and the gaming world is to witness the biggest "Minecraft: Console Edition" update yet. Mojang and Microsoft plan to unleash a glider named Elytra that could catapult players into the air. Basically, all consoles PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One and 360 plus Vita and Nintendo Wii U will also sport Amplified Terrain, End Cities and a potion ingredient Dragon's Breath.
Come to think of it, this "Minecraft: Console Edition" update is the biggest since the franchise was purchased by Microsoft. Gamers can expect polished user interface, new locks, items, status effect and mobs as well. End Cities will also receive a facelift with features too many to mention, Engadget reported. In fact, enumerating these "Minecraft: Console Edition" updates will easily occupy a whole page.
Most of these "Minecraft: Console Edition" updates were seen during a sneak peek given by Mojang. However, they assured that the actual Holiday update pack will contain more. It came as a bargain too - free content. Again, those who doesn't have money need not worry because these are free for anyone who already owns the "Minecraft: Console Edition" copy.
Those who own "Minecraft: Console Edition" can ask players from Windows 10 and Pocket edition if they are free indeed. After all, everything will boil down to the premise that gamers need not spend a Benjamin. It is because Windows 10 and Pocket players received updates recently that were similar to Java version, NeuroGadget said.
To recall, "Minecraft" received Ender Dragon update just a week ago. Players are still enjoying the battle with iconic boss, Ender Dragon which easily transcends to become the ultimate goal for "Minecraft."
Didn't we mentioned that "Minecraft" is also coming to Apple TV? It is funny that once these TV editions ships, it will come with Ender Dragon update already. Meaning, "Minecraft" Apple TV is beginning with The End.
