Mojang has finally revealed the latest snapshot update for Minecraft with new items and features across the PC, Xbox, Wii U and PlayStation 4 including the PS Vita.
The new version now includes new mobs, items and even a new procedurally generated dungeon called the Woodland Mansions. Players now have more to hunt, explore and to build as one of the world’s most popular games still grow several years after it has been released.
Minecraft now has more DLC support with new blocks and items thanks to the update 1.36, PlayStation LifeStyle has learned. Some of the new blocks include the End Bricks, Grass Path, Magma, Nether Wart Block, Bone Block and more.
Some of the new items include the Beetroot and the new Shulker box that can be built thanks to the new Shulker Husks from the previous versions. The new item improves the current storage options of the player so they can loot more without having to worry about where they can place their items.
Mojang’s new Chinese Mythology Mash-Up pack is also now available at $4.99. The players will be able to explore “epic terrain” and to see what China has in store in terms of myths and legends.
Besides the new DLC and items, Mojang is also including the new Woodland Mansion. The new procedurally generated Woodland Mansion dungeon includes more mobs and items to loot, Kotaku reported.
Players can now also buy exploration maps from Minecraft’s new cartographer village which show the location of the nearby Woodland Mansion or Ocean Monument. It would help the players find them faster instead of having to search aimlessly in the endless generated world of Minecraft.
Mojang’s procedural generation of dungeons seem to be improving and Minecraft players could expect to see more dungeons in the following updates. Unfortunately, the developers have not yet confirmed whether there will be new ones or what themes they have in mind for the dungeons.
Minecraft players can just update their game through the official launcher to see the changes for themselves. Multiplayer servers may need to reconfigure to accommodate all of the new features found in the new update.
