The “Minecraft Adventure Update” is now officially available, as Indie developer Mojang recently launched the 1.8 version of the game. This update incorporates some really interesting and noteworthy features and it allows players to do some really bizarre and creative things.
Apart from some nice cosmetic changes like improved graphics and sound, the patch adds randomly generated houses and dungeons, a creative mode, abandoned mines, a food and health system, experience, new blocks, mobs, critical hits, new monsters and sprinting. As usual, the game is still in Beta, but for some reason, this has always made Minecraft even more appealing as it has been really well received by both fans of the genre and critics, selling more than 3,000,000 units since its first release.
Additionally, the sandbox game will have an Xbox 360 version that’ll have Kinect support and will be developed by 4J Studios. The Scotland-based company has ported several titles to other consoles like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (PS3,) Banjo-Kazooie (XBLA) and Perfect Dark (XBLA,) among others. An iOS and Android release is also being developed and the idea of making a portable version of Minecraft seems great.
