Minecraft has been making a lot of news this year with the game debuting on a number of consoles. One of the biggest news involved Mojang studio being bought by Microsoft.
The game’s 1.6.4 update was recently released exclusively on the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
This move did not surprise many as Microsoft now owns the game and will naturally look to provide updates to its own consoles first.
Earlier this year, the game debuted on next generation consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox One. A subsequent update titled “Horses” was then reported on the way. Then last week it was announced that Mojang, the studio responsible for producing the game, had launched a collaboration with Telltale Games to create a whole new game titled “Minecraft: Story Mode.”
“Story Mode” will follow the formula of other games released by Telltale such as “Game of Thrones: Iron From Ice” and “Walking Dead.” The games concentrate more on solving puzzles and decision making, which will in turn influence how events in the game play out.
As for the 1.6.4 update, it comes with a new “Tutorial World” where players can learn more about the game’s existing and new features. As for the update’s main feature, it involves the addition of horses which players can tame and ride. Additionally the horses can use their own armor.
The update also brings new enemies for the players in the forms of Witches, Wither Skeletons and Bats. Fireworks also make an appearance in this update and they are programmed in such a way that they are launched at certain times during the day.
Cinemablend says Mojang plans to release the 1.6.4 update for Playstation consoles in the U.S. shortly and it could even happen within the next few weeks. Those who have Playstation consoles in Europe have already received the update.
