Mojang has been busy improving the console version of Minecraft, and now they can share the fruits of their labors through the 1.26 update.
The update brings about several improvements to the PS3, PS4, and PS Vita versions of the game. Specifically, it has fixed the problem with Guardian spawning and removed bugs that affected sprint activation and third-person camera usage. For PS3, the update also fixed the issue with Mushroom Block textures apart from those mentioned above.
The 1.26 update was released on April 19, just a days after the 1.25 update was released. The previous update was bigger than 1.26 and brought about more significant changes for PS3, PS4, and PS Vita versions, such as the addition of a new skin pack, trophies, audio settings, and Huge Mushroom Blocks. It also fixed numerous issues, such as those that prevented slimes from spawning in certain swamps, teleported players while they were asleep, and caused camera jitters.
These two updates certainly have made life better for Minecraft players who use PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. However, many people are complaining that the console versions still haven’t received the 1.9 update, which has made its way to the PC version on February. The 1.9 update, which is commonly called the Combat Update because of the changes that it brings to combat, is one of the biggest updates that have happened in the Minecraft universe. It adds a left hand to players, introduces new types of shields and arrows, and makes other changes that make combat more exciting.
But it doesn’t stop there. The 1.9 Update also upgrades the fight with the Ender Dragon and allow players to explore new places once they defeat the dragon. Specifically, they can now visit the outer islands of the End, where they can discover End cities and observe new kinds of monsters. They can also build igloos, mine purple blocks (which can be used to decorate structures), obtain chorus fruit from chorus trees, and grab an Elytra armor for themselves.
All of these sound exciting but, unfortunately, only desktop players can enjoy these new features as of now. There’s no word yet as to when the Combat Update will make its way to the PS3, PS4, and PS Vita versions of the game, and industry experts believe that it would take a long time for it to do so. This comes from the fact that 4J Studios, which develops the console versions of Minecraft, has a relatively slow pace when it comes to releasing major updates.
