‘Minecraft’ Xbox And PlayStation TU20 Update Now Available

The latest Minecraft update for the PlayStation and Xbox consoles was finally released Friday after being sent to Sony and Microsoft for certification last week. Title Update 20 (TU20) is available to download now the next time you fire up the open-world sandbox game on your gaming console of choice.

The release of TU20 was made by developer 4J Studios over its official Twitter feed. Don’t expect any new features as this is solely a bug fix release following the release of TU19 last month. That update combined three PC updates into one – Pretty Scary, Redstone, and Horse. So, there were naturally quite a few glitches and issues that needed to be addressed after that hit the wild.

There was a slight delay in the release of the update to Minecraft: PlayStation 4 and PS Vita Editions for North America. That is only because Sony has different certification processes for Europe and North America. Everyone should be able to download the TU20 update now though.

There are some console-specific fixes such as a save transfer issue with the Xbox 360, Achievement issues with the Xbox One, and a Halloween Texture Pack issue with the PS3. Generally though, Minecraft players will be happy that horses will now render correctly while riding one and Creepers will no longer hover over the ground, among other issues.

You can check out the full list of fixes made to Minecraft for Playstation and Xbox consoles below (via Minecraft Forum). Which one was bugging you the most? Sound off in the comments below.
