Minecraft v1.8 Includes Adventure Update, Better Graphics, Villages (VIDEO)
A video of the long-awaited Adventure Update for Minecraft was shown at PAX, showing off improved graphics and some cool new gameplay features. The video shows off some incredibly deep dungeons with some ancient ruins hidden in their depths.
The video is of Notch himself playing Minecraft. At just under 18 minutes into the video, Notch said he and his team will release version 1.8 “as soon as we can,” but noted “We haven’t because there’s so much we need to clean up.”
He added they may do “partial updates” to get it out faster, since with each of the new features “All these things take time to finish.”
There will also be villages, which as seen at the 19 minute mark in the video. Notch says “there’s usually a village near your spawn, but they can be a bit difficult to find.”
Check out the video below:
(UPDATE) Notch took some time to go over the new features. The video, posted Aug. 28, is below:
