For those of you that play Minecraft....

Coming soon:

 Most of the basics of the game engine is in place, so it’s time to flesh this game out into something more gamey. More content, more exploration, more things to do, and interesting combat! Once this update is out, there will only some tweaks, optimizations and code cleanups left to the core game before we can call it a full release.
We’ve got a list of some 40+ things we want to add to the game, some small, some big. Some huge. We’ve finished a fair number of the items, but there’s still a significant amount of work left. While I can’t reveal the date yet for various reasons, we do have a release date for the Adventure Update in mind, and we’re hoping we’ll be able to hit it.
Jens and I are keeping the exact contents of the update secret, but we do leak some information every now and then to keep people interested and to stop us from going insane. For the most immediate spoilers, you can follow us on Twitter (@notch and @jeb_), or on Google+ (+Markus Persson and +Jens Bergensten).
Here are a few of the things we’ve revealed so far:
  • NPC villages
  • Randomly generated dungeons
  • New biome code
  • Fully working Creative Mode (and individual admins can enter Creative Mode on a Survival Mode server if they choose)
  • Critical hits
  • Sprinting
  • More farming options
As soon as I can reveal the release date we’re aiming for, I will!
Oh, and the modding support is happening, honest.


  1. Can't wait for this but is it just me or is this a copy paste job. I wanna hear your views on it man.

  2. It is indeed a copy and paste, It was a preview. When 1.8 is released I will review the update as a whole. Thank you for your comment though.

  3. I agree, I'd like to hear your views on it, not something I can find on any other site. But still, can't wait to play it c:

  4. I am VERY much looking forward to this minecraft release.
