Minecraft‘s Discovery Update is coming to Windows 10 and Pocket Editions, bringing with it more exploration options and journeys into woodland mansions. Oh, and llamas.
“Barter with a cartographer for a treasure map,” and seek out your fortune, according to the official Minecraft blog. The maps lead you to woodland mansions where you can duke it out with Illagers, “villagers gone bad,” for treasure.
The Discovery Update is similar to the Exploration Update implemented in vanilla Minecraft back in November, which saw the introduction of llamas as tameable mobs used as pack animals. Llamas are part of the Discovery Update and have similar functionality to the Llamas in Minecraft on PC.
A new Adventure Mode is also coming with the update, “for folks who like to make custom games and scenarios.”
The Discovery Update beta is coming to the Android version of Pocket Edition “very soon,” and more information can be found on the official Minecraft blog “in the coming weeks.”
Minecraft consistently appears in the top of the NPD Group's monthly US sales listings, and its popularity doesn't seem to show any signs of slowing down. Minecraft is coming to Nintendo Switch, making it the first Nintendo portable to have a version of the game.
