Minecraft’s honey can be used to build flying machines

Minecraft's long overdue recognition of bees just became a bit more significant to the practical minded player. With the new 19w41A snapshot patch, the honey they produce can be agglomerated into usable blocks, whose unusual properties have been a boon for in-game builders, engineers, and even athletes. The internet had already recognised the importance of bees, but with the possibilities honey blocks offer, Minecraft players…

Minecraft Nether Update to overhaul hell with new biomes and pigpeeps

The next big Minecraft update will accomodate players who wish to abandon our blessed world and fully live in the Nether hell dimension, developers Mojang announced over the weekend. The Nether will be expanded with different biomes, including a guts-red forest and blue valleys of fossils, and new lifeforms will move in to support your accursed lifestyle. Who wouldn't want to feast upon hellhogs? Or…

Over 112 million dirt enthusiasts are playing Minecraft every month

For whatever reason, Minecraft had a bit of a moment this summer. We got on board ourselves, with Nate setting up a pleasant little RPS server last month. It had been a hot minute since I'd last dived into Minecraft, but we had a proper great time: I helped a hermit rescue dogs from the underworld. Nate insisted I build a colossal airship off some…

The buzz about town is that Minecraft just added bees

We no longer have bees in the real-world, the last one having left to fly to its home planet of HV-1 last Tuesday, so Minecraft has memorialised our buzzy buds by adding them as a new mob. The fuzzy little dancers are a neutral mob who’ll happily fill your game with honey for you to enjoy, and have just set up a hive in the…

Minecraft gets official ray tracing support for Nvidia RTX cards

Just last week, Mojang announced they had cancelled Minecraft's Super Duper cross-platform graphics pack, citing too many technical difficulties in getting it all up and running. Well, there's sort of good news for those of you still yearning for a good-looking version of the blocky sensation, as Nvidia have just announced the Windows 10 edition of the game will be getting official real-time ray tracing…

Super Duper has gone down the pooper as Minecraft cancels graphics pack

It was E3 in 2017 when Mojang announced that they were going to take the bold, nay daring, step of making Minecraft look good. That step was known as the Super Duper Graphics Pack, which would make the game look like a well-implemented community patch. But yesterday those hopes were dashed on the jagged, aliased edge of a square of stone, as it was announced…

See how Minecraft Earth’s mobs could work on the PC

One of my grander statements about gaming is that, in time, all games and all worlds will be rendered within Minecraft. And I was right because a new mod brings the pigs and chickens of unreleased mobile AR game Minecraft Earth to the PC version of the game, technically rendering Minecraft within Minecraft. I can’t get more righter than that.

Research shows Minecraft can make you more creative, but it depends

Researchers at Iowa State University have unlocked the secret to creativity, and that secret is Minecraft. Kind of. The researchers got two groups to play Minecraft, another to play "a NASCAR racing game", and another to watch TV. Then they all drew aliens and had their creativity judged based on how far their drawings strayed from boring human anatomy. The group that played Minecraft without…

Minecraft: Story Mode downloads might vanish on June 25th

Adding one final indignity to the catastrophic fall of Telltale Games, it appears that their kid-friendly (and admittedly rather naff) Minecraft: Story Mode adventure series may be more than just delisted from stores soon. A blog post on the official Minecraft site warns that even players that own Minecraft: Story Mode, seasons one or two, may not be available to download it after June 25th.…

Visit Minecraft’s theme park map to celebrate its 10th birthday

As part of Minecraft's tenth birthday celebrations, Mojang have commissioned a virtual theme park celebrating the build 'em up. It's available as a free map for all players. Exhibitions include a sculpture garden of monsters in a glasshouse, demonstrations of redstone-powered doohickeys, museums, galleries, Easter eggs... it seems real fancy. A season of festivities for a mere tenth anniversary might seem churlish but hell, Minecraft…

Minecraft Classic is a free browser-based piece of history

As part of Minecraft's tenth anniversary celebrations, Mojang have dusted off an early 2009 iteration, packaged it up into free, browser-friendly format and called it Minecraft Classic. This nearly-decade-old build is an interesting museum piece, not quite a game yet, but it was still unmistakably Minecraft at this point. Players are free to generate and explore procedurally generated worlds and build with a palette of…

Minecraft’s original developer isn’t invited to its 10th anniversary bash

It's been a big year for Minecraft, that monolithic devourer of children's free time, and Microsoft are gearing up to celebrate its tenth anniversary. They just won't be sending any invitations to original lead developer Markus "Notch" Persson, whose "comments and opinions" online have gotten him kicked off the mega-corporation's christmas card list, according to Variety. This comes shortly after the game's current developers removed…

Licensed to illage: Minecraft launches Village & Pillage update

The world of Minecraft has become a little more alive this week with the launch of the Village & Pillage update. It gives villagers new jobs, creates new styles of village, whacks in a Bamboo Jungle biome, unleashes pandas, arms us with a crossbow, and adds a pillager faction with their own bases who'll raid villages unless we fend them off. Some parts of all…

Hytale is a blocky sandbox RPG spawned from a massive Minecraft server

With aid and investment from League Of Legends studio Riot, Hypixel Studios - the folks behind the massive Hypixel Minecraft server - have just announced Hytale, their secret project of the past three years. Unsurprisingly, it's a block-building sandbox, but with a bit more of an RPG focus as its core module. Building on what Hypixel liked so much with Minecraft, Hytale will support community…

Minecraft overhauling NPC villages, adding pandas

Along with announcing dungeon-crawling spin-off Minecraft: Dungeons, over the weekend Mojang laid out their plans for future additions to plain ol' Minecraft. The next major update is named 'Village & Pillage', and it'll make NPC villages more unique and interesting with new styles and daily routines, along with new enemies to pillage them. Also in the pipeline: pandas, cats, a crossbow, and an overhaul of…

Minecraft: Dungeons will dungeon-crawl through the blockworld

A new Minecraft spin-off game will delve into the blockworld as a dungeon-crawler in 2019, developers Mojang announced this weekend during their MineCon fan event. Minecraft: Dungeons is its name, and whacking monsters is its game. Inspired by "classic dungeon crawler games", they say, it'll send up to four players to whack and stab and thwipp and zap through Minecrafty levels and monsters, grabbing whatever…

Minecraft’s Update Aquatic splashes onto Java clients

Fish! Turtles! Dolphins! Tridents! All these and more washed ashore in Minecraft's Update Aquatic last week, but only for the Windows 10 version. Those salty friends have now appeared on the Java client, along with underwater ruins, shipwrecks and a special block that makes everything near it behave as if it was on dry land. I went for an underwater wander this morning. The developers…

Minecraft’s Update Aquatic brings friendly dolphins and fetching reefs

I do like to be beside the seaside, but there's a lot to be said for diving into it and building oversized penis monuments. Fortunately the second and final part of Minecraft's "Update Aquatic" came out yesterday, and lets people with the Windows 10 version do exactly that. For players still on the Java version, work-in-progress snapshots have been available for a while but the…

Former Telltale CEO Sues Telltale Games

Might not be the most exciting story today, but this feels like a bit we need to cover. Last month, Telltale delayed The Wolf Among Us 2 until 2019 due to vague "we're making it better we promise" reasons. This comes at the end of a year or two of reports that life at Telltale is not going well, and that the internal operations have…
