By adding pistons in the game, players will have endless possibilities to use them. In the trailer, the Rube Goldberg machine (created by BlockWorks and TheMusicalKnight) is showcasing the new pistons, so when they will be available, players will know what to do with them. “Pistons have been a top feature requested by the Minecraft community, and we are excited to deliver the feature to players soon, which will allow them to create even cooler buildings and contraptions in their Minecraft worlds,” Mojang told GamesBeat.
Mojang and Microsoft have a reason to celebrate, because until now, they sold 100 million copies of Minecraft on all platforms, including the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U consoles.
