Minecraft is one of the great wonders of our age. Since its release developer Mojang has kept churning out more and more content for the game. We have seen Tell Tale create a point and click adventure game and there has also been new game modes added to the actual Minecraft game itself. Last year this included the Hunger Games style Battle mode. Tomorrow will see the launch of a new mini game in the Minecraft world called Glide. Recently we have seen the addition of the Elytra item. This is a set of wings that lets you fly around ... Read More »
Vault Dweller! War might not change, but the post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland just got a whole lot more cubic... Minecraft devs Mojang have announced that a mash-up pack to the popular RPG Fallout will be coming to consoles at some point in the near future. Like all mash-up packs, this appears to be a Minecraft shaped love letter to the game in question. For the low price of $5,99 (probably about £4.50 here if compared to other mash-up packs), you'll get 44 Fallout themed skins including fan favourite characters like Nick Valentine and the Vault Boy himself, a whole new map ...

Minecraft continues to be a title that continues to loved by young and old fans alike. The main reason for this, aside from the obvious limitless creative options the game affords, is because the developers never let the title become forgotten or fall by the wayside. Updates are released at least a couple of times a year. Over the last year or so consoles in particular have been afforded some updates that have often been reserved for PC users. Mojang's end goal being to bring the console version in line with, or as close as possible to, it's PC brethren. As such Mojang have today ... Read More »

We always thought that if cross-play gaming were to become a success, it’d probably begin with a game like Minecraft. It seems that Minecraft’s developer Mojang agree. There was a lot of buzz around cross-play a couple of months back, with developers and senior gaming figures all saying what a great idea it was – the studio behind Rocket League literally said they were ready for Xbox One-PS4 cross-play the moment Sony gave the nod. But has that nod been given to another studio? https://twitter.com/Minecraft/status/780198616040284161?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw During the epic MINECON convention, Mojang announced that the subscription-based Minecraft Realms would offer full ...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 6 from Telltale Games is the first of an additional three, largely self contained, episodes for Minecraft Story Mode. Episode 6, “A Portal To Mystery”, starts where Episode 5 ended, and sees Jesse, hero of the first five episodes, return and meet some interesting special guest stars. Episode 6 takes place in a whole new and alien world - one that has two moons (unusual, even for Minecraft). Jesse, Petra, Ivor, and Lucas find themselves in a graveyard and are immediately beset by a zombie horde. Seeking safety in a nearby mansion, things take a surreal turn as our heroes are joined ...

Mojang have been busy working away on the Windows 10 Beta Version of Minecraft adding more and more mechanics to the game. Some of us here at Xbox One UK are serious minecrafters, so this "friendly update" - as it's been dubbed - is welcomed with open arms. The update brings several complex mechanisms to the Windows 10 edition of Minecraft - like pistons (and the Sticky ones, too) - but other features like pig riding and horse armor will be included.
