Minecraft 1.8 Update

Are you itching for the minecraft 1.8 update, also known as the adventure update? I sure am… Notch has said that this update will allow rewards for exploration and combat. What he has said is that he is adding experience points. What this experience will do, no one knows really.. Guess we will just have to wait until it comes out. In the meantime, however, I have Notch explaining pretty much everything he has added in this update and I have some gameplay footage of the 1.8 update in action. (I would advise muting the second video because of the whiny child playing).

My favourite parts of the update are the new things added to the map generator: (added ravines, rivers, abandoned mines and strongholds!), second is the bow animation/adjusting the power of a shot. Lastly, my favourite part is the ENDERMAN. I thought he would be a little more scary, but meh. I am now curious what he drops?

What was your favourite part of the update?


Enderman Mob

The Enderman mob is a new mob that will be implemented in the 1.8 update. They tall, lanky black creatures. They can change and modify the location of bricks. They are a peaceful mob that slowly roam the countryside, until your crosshair crosses him. He will freeze, stare at you, then sprint really fast! They will stay frozen as long as your looking at them (kinda like boo in mario). If they were farther away they will teleport nearer to you. They can teleport once per second and will only appear where you can see them.

Be very afraid.

I think this is a good way to shake up the Minecraft world, creepers are dangerous, but comical. Endermen will strike fear into a new Minecraft player, with their jumpy, horror movie style movement. Can’t wait for 1.8, amiright???
