Sharing is caring!

According to reports, Mojang has finally released the Minecraft: Pocket Edition version 0.16 update. The new update is also named “Boss Update” and it comes with some new add-ons to the game, which will surely change the way the game is plaid.

First of all, you can now have creepers ride huge explosive chickens or even turn creepers into tiny mobs, which are even more destructive. Another important feature that has been added to the game is the ability to import and export Realms. For example, you will be able to take an offline world that you’ve worked on for quite a while and share it with your friends in a Realm. This map can also be downloaded on your mobile devices so you can play it offline.

The new update also comes with Alien Invasion add-on which you can see in the video below:

The new Minecraft 0.16 Update also makes oceans more interesting, because the Ocean Monuments are being added. Along with them, other stuffs are available, such as Guardians, Elder Guardians, Sponges, Sea Lanters and more. You will also notice the slash commands which will make their first appearance along with “Wither”.

As you can see, this new update comes with lots of nice things, but we also have some bad news for you. It seems that the music is not yet being added to this version of the game, but let’s hope that sometime soon, the developers will bring it.
