Minecraft is the hugely popular game from Mojang that offers players the opportunity to blend gameplay and creativity into the same space. For players on PC, the most recent update is v1.3.2, however, Minecraft version 1.4 is an update just on the horizon. Fortunately, thanks to plenty of posts around the internet, the details for Minecraft’s upcoming update are more than pure speculation.

The most exciting new feature coming for Minecraft might be that mobs can spawn with equipment and armor. These mobs might be wearing a complete set of diamond armor or just some leather boots. You’ll be going from running into a naked mob to one potentially dressed in full battle gear, even ones with enchanted weapons and heavy armor. It’s being reported around the internet that these mobs aren’t dropping any loot, apparently due to gameplay balancing issues.

If you enjoy trading within your Minecraft world, this element of the game will also be update. Villagers will be able to gather up their own feelings, meaning if you abuse them, they won’t give you the same deals when you decide to barter with them. If you give them plenty of love, they’ll want to trade more and even give you some specials along the way.

Getting back to baddies, in this update for Minecraft (v1.4) zombie raiders can actually metamorph villagers into zombies – ones that will actually retain the facial features of the original villager. Even the babies aren’t safe – they can become baby zombies! These villagers can actually be saved, but it’s a long process and one you probably will forgo in favor of just cutting them down.

For the Minecraft techies out there, this update will bring some goodies as well. There’s going to be something called the “Minecraft Control Block” which will allow you to execute server commands when executed by redstone. This way, you can do things like alterating the amount of experience or even alter the day/night settings. In addition, the modding API for servers will be included with this stack, so servers on their own can host mods which can be auto-downloaded by players as soon as they join the server. this makes playing on modded servers ridiculously easier and should help move more great mods around servers around the world.

Players should note that there were quite a few bug fixes in v1.3.2 and more should be on the way for v1.4 of Minecraft.
