Minecraft Adventure Update

Minecraft: XBOX 360 Edition will be receiving the 1.8.2 update, also known as the Adventure Update. According to a tweet from 4J Studios, the developer behind the XBOX Edition, the Adventure Update is still weeks away. This latest update will bring a plethora of new features that will change the entire play style of the game.
The Adventure Update will add NPCs into the game and villages for them to live in, as well as strong holds and abandoned mine shafts for players to explore. The update will also add in a hunger element, enchanting, the ability to sprint, and a whole lot more.
With this update the long awaited creative mode will be making its debut onto the XBOX. The creative mode will give players the ability to create anything their heart’s desire without having to mine the materials.
With the introduction of the Adventure update, the XBOX Edition will almost be caught up to its PC brother. Although, due to user generated content, it probably won’t ever fully catch up to the PC version.
[adsense250itp]While the XBOX Edition takes a step closer, the PC version pushes for yet another update, stepping even further out of reach from its little brother. Thanks to the weekly snapshots that have been released we have seen more than a handful of new additions, including a new mob called Wither Skeletons and the Wither Boss. New potions have also been sighted, including a night vision potion and an invisibility potion.
The 1.4 update for the PC version is going by the name of the “The Pretty Scary Update.” The name is not because it will be released around Halloween this year but because it will add in features like a creeper costume, the aforementioned Wither boss, and so many decorative items like pot plants and item frames. Come to think of it, pot plants and picture frames aren’t all that scary.
What is scary though is that the nasty mobs will be able to spawn with items such as swords or even armor. To make things worse, if a villager is killed by a zombie they become a rather large nosed zombie villager. Don’t think that the children villagers will be safe from the zombie disease either or you will end up with zombie children running around.
While you’re protecting the villagers from the zombies, it will benefit you to be as nice to them as possible as they will start to dislike you if you’re mean. The nicer you are to the villagers, the better deals you get from them.
There is so much more coming to Minecraft in update 1.4 and you can check it out for yourself with the developer’s snapshot. However, keep in mind it isn’t a final product and it’s more than likely that Mojang is keeping some secrets up their sleeves.
The latest snapshot can be found on the Mojang blog and the full list of upcoming features on the Mincraft wiki.
