The team over at Mojang and Microsoft have confirmed that Minecraft owners should expect a large update to the immensely popular game later this evening. The new update brings with it a tonne of new features including a brand new UI engine. The update is rolling out now to all platforms with the Nintendo Switch and Wii U expected to receive it sometime this evening. Here’s the details as provided by the development team:
- 7 new Achievements/Trophies
- New UI engine (saving significant memory – which should boost performance!)
- Woodland Mansion
- Treasure Maps
- Observer Block
- Totem of Undying
- Illagers! Vindicator, Vex and Evoker!
- ‘Bouncy’ Beds
- Dyeable beds
- Option to change Biomes size to match other platforms (since they are smaller on console by default)
