Minecraft players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 will gain access to a brand new Mini Game tomorrow called Glide.

“Strap on a pair of elytra and hone your swooping skills on an exhilarating aerial track – the first in a series of free tracks to be released,” Mojang explains. “Beat the clock in the Time Attack mode, using thermal drafts and speed boosters to your advantage, or go for points in Score Attack by hitting all the hoops. Careful study may reveal sneaky shortcuts to refine your runs, so keep your eyes peeled!”

The mode is available in both solo and online play, and Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players can compare themselves to others on the new Glide leaderboards. Tomorrow’s update will also boost the maximum number of players allowed in Glide and Battle modes to 16 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

“Putting the Elytra in for the Console Edition Christmas update was the big driving force,” art director David Keningale said. “The cogs were already turning while we were building the elytra tutorial level. That said, we assumed it would be a ring-based flight course, like PilotWings. It was only as we were building the tracks that we realized just how much fun Time Trial was – and that inspired us to add more shortcuts in order to make it even more fun.”

More maps will be added to Glide in the near future, with some being free and others part of a season pass.
