Just as predicted, Mojang has pushed out The Ender Update for Windows 10 and Pocket Edition of Minecraft. Bringing The End to Minecraft as we know it.
Well technically, ‘The End’ is the new realm included with the update; let’s not confuse it with the end of the game or its development.
If you have been following the development of Minecraft over the years, this piece of news might seem quite familiar. But no, sadly you have not time-traveled to the past.
Minecraft 1.0, The End update came to the original Java version back in 2011. Released by then developer Notch during MineCon; bringing the game out of beta after more than two years of development.
Following in the footsteps of the Java version, both Windows 10 and Pocket version will be moving on to version 1.0. This update brings them even closer to its Java counterpart in terms of features; planned to replace it altogether at some point in the future.
Along with the creepy End realm, the home of the Endermen, End cities, Ender chests and more things with “end” in their name; you will be facing the Ender Dragon as the game’s final boss.
The Ender Dragon is, as the name implies, a dragon that lives at The End. Charged with keeping you from reaching the end credits of Minecraft. While the fight can be a hard one, getting some friends to help you is a good strategy.
The full changelog of the update can be read here, including igloos, polar bears, and plenty more surprises.
Festive Mashup 2016 Pack
Windows 10 and Pocket Edition of Minecraft will receive this jolly new pack containing a winter themed world; unlike the Fallout Mashup pack from last week that these platforms sadly missed out on.
With new textures and 21 skins to spice up this festive season, you can make your own winter wonderland while dressed for the occasion. With choices ranging from Santa to the Yeti; whether you were naughty or nice, there are choices for everyone.
The Ender Update is now out on Windows 10 and Pocket Edition of Minecraft for free. Just launch the game and plan your attack on the Ender Dragon, or ignore it and play just as you would normally.
The Festive Mash-Up 2016 Pack will set you back $3.99, obtainable through in-game stores of the Windows 10 and Pocket Editions of Minecraft.
