Minecraft 1.2 Better Together beta update is here - are your ready?! (read more)
Watch the video above to see the new features!
Minecraft 1.2 Better Together update connects Pocket Edition, Xbox and Windows 10 players together! I'm not sure about Nintendo Switch and other consoles, they might be part of this update too! So with 1.2 update, different platform players can play with each other - for an example Xbox and Pocket Edition players can play on the same servers!
This is great news for those who have friends playing on different platforms. But that's not all, there's a lot of new features and items too!
Here's a list of some new features:
Stained Glass: Did you get bored of the regular glass? Yeah, me too.. well I hope that you said yes to that, because here's something awesome: Minecraft 1.2 has colored glass!
Fireworks: Craft fireworks, and make them unique with different colors and explosions! They are really customizable, at least on PC version, to be honest I didn't try crafting them yet.
Parrots: We have ocelots, dogs (wolves?) and other animals, so where were the parrots hiding? Well at least now we found them: they are on the jungle biomes on Minecraft 1.2 update!
Banners: Craft banners with different colors and logos!
Armor stands: What should you do with your old armors - throw them away? Well, not anymore, just put them on the armor stands as a trophy!
Jukebox and music discs: For those who enjoy some blocky music!
Book and Quill: Now you can carry your own shopping list anywhere you go in Minecraft. So yeah, it's a book where you can write stuff. Good for custom maps!
Recipe Book: I have no idea what that is or where to find it.. or was it the inventory update?
Ravines: Ravines are those huge holes in ground - great for mining!
Coarse Dirt: Yeah that stuff, new dirt things.
New Options: Related to fire spreading, mobs and other stuff. Just check them out by yourself.
Zombie Villager spawn egg: Why didn't we have these already?!
New loading screens: Yep, new loading sreens. There's some funny texts too.
I could have missed a few, but hey, maybe they will be pleasant surprises for you!
