‘Minecraft' News & Updates: Video Game’s Latest Add-Ons , Plugins The First Step Towards Greater Levels Of Customization [VIDEO]
The Swedish video game developer Mojang, already announced at Minecon 2016 that Minecraft Pocket Edition, which cost $6.99, is finally getting Add-Ons. The developers see it as the first step towards the sandbox video game getting greater levels of customization by letting a player mess around in ways they couldn't before.
Right after the panel, the video game developer posted a short video that talked about how add-ons can make the mobs become different in various ways. The video was a very brief taste of what's to come for "Minecraft," but now, Mojang has posted online the full panel video that showcases the "Minecraft" add-ons in action.
For instance, a "Minecraft" player can see sheep with creepers riding them and blowing them up around. The "Minecraft" panel also talks about the future of the new features, according to Touch Arcade.
Meanwhile, the Exploration Update of "Minecraft" for PC has also been released. The shulker box is one of the most interesting additions in the game, which is found in the latest "Minecraft" update.
The shulker box serves as a storage space for anything that a "Minecraft" player wants to keep, and this addition is something that "Minecraft" fans have been longing for. When the shulker box is not in use for survival, the feature can be used as a decorative item, based on the report of Kotaku.
Also, a big addition that is heading to "Minecraft" is the Woodland Mansion, a dungeon that gamers will occasionally find in wooded locations. The mansion in "Minecraft" is inhabited with spell-casting mobs called the Illagers. These spell-casting mobs also have the abilities to summon villains, and attack "Minecraft" players.
Nevertheless, the new add-on to this update is the existence of llamas. These llamas can be used to transport items, or become a caravan during travels of a "Minecraft" players.
