It wasn’t too long ago that a Minecraft Pocket Edition update was released. Now, it seems a new update is coming really soon. Well, it’s technically already here: it’s arrival was confirmed on Twitter following the release of 0.14.0 and a 0.15.0 Realms Alpha Build has already been released; the build is currently on Build 4 with Beta Builds coming sometime this May.
The actual timeframe when users are going to get this new update isn’t yet known as the official versions on Amazon Appstore, Google Play, iOS App Store and Windows Phone Store are all 0.14.2. But thanks to the regular updates of the game’s developers on Twitter, we have a fairly good idea of what’s in store for version 0.15.0.
Here’s what we know:
- It will have new Texture Packs. The old stuff will still be there, additional treats will be included with the newest version. For 0.15.0, users can add new music, upgrade models and adjust in-game animation. Through these features, gamers can customize according to their need.
- An anti-aliasing option will be added. However, this feature will only be applicable for Windows 10 and VR users.
- The control for turning Animated Water off will be taken out. This is good news for players who run into trouble when trying to turn on this feature.
- An Observer Block will be added. This is a Block Update Detector that will be used to activate Pistons whenever a block close it is changed. For instance, a Piston will get activated when a block located nearby is set on Fire. Users of the Pocket Edition will get to experience this first before PC users.
- It will feature Pistons and Sticky Pistons. These are Redstone-related blocks that can push other blocks when they are given a power source. The difference between the two is that Sticky Pistons can pull the object they are attached to.
- It will feature Raw Mutton and Cooked Mutton as food items.
- It might feature biome-based villages for structures. This is considered a possibility at this point because there is a good change this won’t make the final cut.
- It might feature the mending enchantment. For now, this is a possibility as it may or may not make the final build.
Players of Minecraft have been voicing their opinion about multi-player options but that doesn’t seem to be in the cards right now. Other than that, there have been rumors about version-exclusive non-playable characters who have dialogue but that’s just buzz for now. Then again, given the list of possible new features, gamers can see that it’s going to be one heck of an update.
