Minecraft is without any doubts one of the most played games out there. This game is available on consoles, computers and even on mobile devices. The game has been released back in 2011 and in a very short time, it has become very popular, which took the company by surprise. Mojang, the developer of Minecraft, was sold in 2014 to Microsoft for 2.5 billion dollars.

Back then, many fans of the game have thought that Mojang will not release any new updates for other operating systems and will focus on Microsoft’s Windows OS. However, the new owner has assured them that the team of developers will keep updating Minecraft on all existing platforms.



Mojang has finally announced a new BETA version of its Minecraft Pocket Edition. The new update is named “The Friendly Update” and it brings fire chargers, husk zombies, pig riding and some of the Xbox Live achievements on Android devices.
