A new update for the Windows 10 and Pocket Edition of Minecraft has been released, giving players access to “basic redstone components,” and introducing new desert temples to explore. Players can also collect “four types of cute, fluffy rabbits,” which is definitely the most important addition in the new update. Dwellings can now sport five new door types, and new biome settler character skins are also available.
Here’s a full list of what’s new in Minecraft as of today:
REDSTONE CIRCUITS. Today’s .13 update fulfills the most player-requested features for Windows 10 and Pocket Edition: redstone. Mining blocks of this very useful, rare material produces a substance called redstone dust. This dust can be used to carry signals between objects and build some of the more advanced items in Minecraft. Players can make a wire out of redstone dust by placing it on block next to each other. By adding a redstone signal and components, players can create anything from doorbells to switchable light to mob grinders to rollercoasters.
The new Minecraft update brings the first of three groups of simple redstone items to the Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition beta and Pocket Edition including redstone wires, redstone torches, redstone lamps, levers, buttons, pressure plates, tripwire hooks, note blocks, trapped chests, detector rails and TNT. Minecrafters who have already mastered advanced redstone can look forward to advanced blocks like Pistons, Repeaters and others planned in future updates with the final two groups of redstone functionality.
DESERT TEMPLES AND RABBITS. Obviously, getting redstone is a huge, highly-anticipate update, but there’s more. While exploring desert biomes, players may find mysterious desert temples emerging from the sands. Built from sandstone, these structures offer adventurous Minecrafters a chance at grabbing some valuable loot. The only catch is that you have to make it out of the desert temples alive…
Players will also now find six types of adorable, fluffy bunnies hopping around their Minecraft worlds. These cute, little critters will help themselves to your crops when they are hungry. Don’t let their cuteness fool you, they can be super destructive.
BIOME SETTLERS. Also available today is the Biome Settler Pack I. The first of a series of forest, tundra and desert biome-inspired skin packs, the pack adds more than two dozen new character skins to the game. This new skin pack brings a slew of new settler characters like archers, hunters and brewers into the game, offering Minecrafters biome-themed skins they can use to roleplay with friends. The Biome Settler Pack I costs $1.99 USD.
Have fun with all these new features, Minecrafters!
