Minecraft content update 9 on the way

minecraft xbox one

4J Studios are in the process of releasing a brand new Minecraft update for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 platforms.

Unfortunately, content update 9 brings with it no new features and instead focuses on fixing a whole range of different bugs such as glitched redstone circuits and dodgy village generation.

Full patch notes below:

– More Redstone fixes.
– Increased minecart limit.
– Stopped tamed horses despawning when they are in a fenced-off area.
– Crafting a map now produces an Empty Map.
– Fixed a crash with a Noteblock.
– Fixed an issue with village generation.
– Fixed an issue with Witch Huts allowing other mobs to spawn in them after a reload.
– Fixed an issue where Blaze Spawners and Chests don’t appear in the Nether after a Nether Reset.
– Fixed a crash with Minecarts travelling through Nether Portals.

Minecraft Title Update 19 coming soon

Horses

4J Studios have released the trailer for the soon to be incoming Title Update 19 for Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition, (CU 7 for Xbox One).

This will feature some exciting new additions, namely;

  • New Mobs – Wither, Wither Skeletons, Witches, Bats, Donkeys, Mules
  • Beacons
  • Coloured clay
  • Hardened clay
  • Hay bale
  • Activator rail
  • Daylight sensor
  • Dropper
  • Hopper
  • Minecart with TNT
  • Firework star
  • Nether star
  • Trapped chest
  • New tutorial map
  • Horse spawn egg
  • Horses

Yes, that’s right, horses. Having played the PC version, the horses are a great way of getting around, they’re much faster than pig-riding.

4J have confirmed that Minecraft 1.6.4 is rolling out to 360 and One now, and I’m looking forward to this and posibility of riding off into the sunset.

I wonder if they’ll produce Minecraft beans to sit around the campfire with at night?

Have a look at the trailer 4J released and let us know what you think.

Oh, did I mention the horses?

Minecraft Xbox One releases this Friday

This Friday 4JStudios smash hit Minecraft will launch on the Xbox One. The best news though is that if you already own the game on the 360 you’ll be able to purchase the game for just £3.99!

Minecraft on Xbox One will transfer all your existing worlds across from the Xbox 360 version, plus you’ll be able to play with seven friends on Xbox Live to build whatever you feel like?

Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition Heading For Retail

minecraft-xbox-360

Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition which is currently available for download on the Xbox LIVE Arcade is soon to hit retailers next month in the US. If you’re not one of the five million gamers who downloaded and contributed to the worldwide success of the title from 4J Studios, then maybe some retail therapy is in order?

We rated Minecraft 10/10 in our review last year:

In a console gaming world that often faces accusations of lacking invention and innovation we now have Minecraft, a game that can be whatever you choose to make it and that alone is something very, very special indeed.

The upcoming retail edition will include all previous updates and the long awaited TU9 patch which is currently in bug-testing before hitting Xbox LIVE.

If the retail version comes to Europe – we’ll be sure to let all of you Europeans known in due course…
