4J Studios has released the official list of changes, additions, and fixes slated to arrive in the next Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition patch.
Title Update 12 brings a handful of items and features found in the latest patch of the PC and Mac versions into the console world. Not only will players finally get to tame Ocelots, they’ll also discover plenty of new jungle plants to chop down and harvest.
The next Minecraft update also adds a handful of new mobs. Babies and Iron Golems will make their debut with Title Update 12. Townsfolk will continue having children if their town is big enough to handle the new additions.
The folks at 4J Studios have also made a few tweaks to existing enemies. If you find yourself wandering around in the dark at night, you might encounter a horde of zombies that are waiting to rip you limb from limb.
Gamers who are making their way through this untamed universe on Hard Mode will find that zombies now have the ability to break through your doors.
Builders will be happy to know that the next Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition update makes some serious changes to the world’s maximum height. Although the game is currently capped out at 128, armchair architects will push that number to 256. Let your imaginations run wild.
Since this version of the open-world adventure has sold approximately eight million copies, 4J Studios is making sure they keep people coming back for more. Hopefully the developers will keep these updates rolling out on a regular basis.
