The huge Better Together Minecraft [$6.99] update (or 1.2) is getting closer, and the developers continue teasing upcoming features. One of the new features is ravines, which make map generation much more interesting and create all kinds of possibilities for funny bridge-centered builds. We are also getting parrots, which can be tamed and will perch on your shoulder, turning you into a silly-looking pirate. The update is also adding jukeboxes and music discs, for those lonely, quiet nights of winter. Speaking of winter, temperature will now decrease with height.
The update will also give you the opportunity to play around with fireworks, as you can see in the gif above, and will also offer the possibility of starting new maps with Bonus Chests, which are very helpful. Finally, the crafting UI is redesigned to combine the classic crafting UI with regular recipe book style crafting, which should be great help for players. No word yet on when the update will release, but it shouldn't be too far off.
