Minecraft’s progression over the past few updates has mostly made sense. We got bees, then we got honey. Naturally, the next step was honey blocks. Then, of course, honey blocks make parkour. Yeah, that last bit might seem like a bit of a stretch, but players have found that honey’s sticky benefits can turn you into a veritable Prince of Persia.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – Minecraft players are some of the smartest game fans around. This player, has managed to work out how to create a fully functioning bomber plane, so pilligers beware. User Kurozawa posted a video of this dastardly design, and it’s confusing just to look at.
Fans of any game are always looking to change the rules of play. Whether that be modding or glitching through walls it’s regularly a way to make a game easier, however this Minecraft player made life very difficult for themselves by completing the game without mining a single block (via PC Gamer).
Minecraft isn’t just a game, it’s a lifestyle – at least, that’s the impression I get from the endless toys, clothes, and books I see with Steve and the Creepers on the cover. Now, it’s time for the next logical step: a Minecraft board game. We’re getting exactly that later this month with a new, construction-focused tabletop game built in collaboration between Mojang and Ravensburger.
Minecraft is a pretty peaceful game. Sure, the odd pesky mob or monster might occasionally saunter over and decide to engage you in a bit of a scuffle, but for the most part you’re free to go about your block building at leisure. However, one modder’s now offered players the chance to put combat front and centre in a Minecraft-style setting – with a Doom II mod.
Minecraft has had zombie pigmen for ages, but it hasn’t really been clear what form a non-zombified pigman might take. Now, we’re about to have an answer in the form of piglins – a new mob type introduced at today’s Minecon stream. Sadly, it doesn’t seem that these guys are going to be much friendlier than their undead counterparts.
Minecon 2019 is now in full swing, and developer Mojang has announced some exciting news to fans of its sandbox block-builder in a livestream at the show. Minecraft Earth – the alternate reality version of the game for mobiles – is getting a global rollout. It’s been revealed that Minecraft Earth will launch in Early Access in October, and you can begin pre-registering to find out when it’ll arrive in your country starting today.
