Microsoft and Mojang has announced that Minecraft‘s biggest update of the year will arrive on consoles next month.
Exact details are being kept under wraps for now, but the update will introduce new mobs, items, blocks and status effects, in addition to UI, game, and tutorial updates.
A major addition in the holiday update will be the Elytra, which allows players to glide through the air. The Elytra can be found in The End, which has also been updated to include End Cities and End Ships.
A few details (via Xbox Wire) can be found below:
- If you?re sick of spending all your time walking on solid ground, just equip the new Elytra, which enables players to glide through the air!
- You?ll find your Elytra in The End, which has been updated to include End Cities, End Ships and all the Chorus Plants, Flowers and Purpur you can handle. Don?t say we didn?t warn you if one turns out to be a Shulker.
- Like potions? Use Dragon?s Breath to create Lingering Potions if you want to leave some status effects on the ground for a friend or foe to happen upon. Speaking of status effects, we?re adding a couple new ones as well ? Levitation and Luck.
- If you?re just getting started on a new world on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, you can turn on Amplified Terrain. This option makes the differences between mountains and valleys more extreme ? so put that Elytra to good use!
More details about the update will be shared ahead of its release in December.
