Like most of you, I have an unhealthy fascination with Minecraft, the indie block based adventure/construction game. Today Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson shed some light on the new features we can expect when the Halloween update goes live.
According to Notch, “There are six new block types (five of them have unique abilities), one new monster, a new dimension, and a couple of bug fixes. Once I get the portals working, I’ll have something very interesting going and I’ll spend the rest of the time leading up to the release adding new smaller features and polishing stuff.”
“Portals?” you ask. Well according to one of Notch’s tweets, “you will eventually be able to link servers with portals.” While this is thrilling news to us Minecrafters, Notch made sure to emphasise that the implementation of these portals is “NOT SOON.”
What do you guys think about this? Are you excited for some new block times and a new monster? On a side note, what are some of your favorite Minecraft stories or things you’ve built. Let us know with a comment below.
