The 1.31 Update has been available for PlayStation for just over a week now and there’s still no sign of this update coming for Microsofts Xbox consoles.
The update came in response to player comments about the Battle Mini-game which was having issues with various bugs and glitches; some of these bugs such as the non-solid block potion bug were game-breaking. Another potentially game-breaking issue was the Cove Battle map which was riddled with holes, the update also fixed some issues with hill generation.
Many smaller issues were also fixed such as the game showing an incorrect death message when a player was killed by lightning; some problems with the trophy system were also corrected.
Console Minecraft also received a new DLC called Battle Map Pack 2, to bring new maps to the mini-game which also have their own objectives. Additionally, there is a new Redstone Specialist Skin Pack available to purchase.
