‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ Update Expected To Roll Out Wednesday

Minecraft

The latest update for the popular open world title Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is expected to roll out on Wednesday.

The latest patch for the expansive adventure game will address around 40 issues players have been experiencing with the game. According to GameZone, 4J Studios explained that UK gamers would be the first to get the update. The patch is expected to arrive around 10 am on Wednesday in the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately for those living in other territories, the company responsible for bringing Minecraft to the Xbox 360 said it could take a while before the patch becomes available elsewhere. In other words, do not flood 4J Studios with emails stating that the update hasn’t been applied.

Gamespot reports that those hoping to experience an alternate plane called The End will have to wait for the next official update. While the home of the Endermen was originally scheduled for this patch, it has since been pushed back.

In addition to the numerous changes and tweaks being made via the latest patch, gamers will now be able to collect Glowstone Dust from Blazes. If that doesn’t make any sense to you, then you probably haven’t been playing enough Minecraft in recent days.

The Inquisitr previously reported that Minecraft: The Xbox 360 Edition has sold an estimated five million copies since it debuted on Xbox LIVE Arcade a year ago.
