In the new update for the “Minecraft” game, update 1.10 is considered the holiday update. This update introduces wings to the console versions of the game, as well as new mobs as well as new features for The End dimension.
“Minecraft” developer Mojang released a “Fallout” crossover DLC pack, which made the console versions of the game transform into a wasteland, according to Game Rant. The pack is mostly for cosmetic purposes, as it only adds a few new characters as well as character skins. However, the new update promises that this time, it is more practical and free for everyone.
The new update adds a whole new range of features to the “Minecraft” console versions. Update 1.10 gives significant changes to The End dimension's landscape with the addition of End Cities and End ships. The former is basically made out of end stone bricks as well as purpur blocks, which can be composed of just a single tower. The latter are simply pirate-ship like vessels, as described by the players who played the PC and Mac versions of the game.
Also, “Minecraft” update 1.10 gives players several new items that help make the game even more interesting. This includes Dragon's Breath, Water Splash Potion, Tipped Arrow, and Elytra. The last one on the list cannot be crafted, but are only found in End Cities and can be worn as a chestplate that allows players flight.
However, the Elytra only allows players to glide from high ledges until they reach the ground, according to Game Spot. The rate of descent can be controlled by looking up or down, but if the player looks up for prolonged periods of time, they will stall. Otherwise, they gain a small amount of height.
“Minecraft” is available on the PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The game is available for both Android and iOS mobile devices.
Here is a trailer for the “Minecraft” holiday update 1.10 for the console.
