  • Add-Ons! Sponges! Pocket / Win 10 gets the Boss Update

    Wet sponges - I’ve recently discovered that babies like to suck on them, which is kinda gross to be honest. But let’s not worry about that for now. Minecraft: Pocket Edition and the Windows 10 Edition beta are being updated to 0.16 today, bringing loads of new features, most of which are not in the slightest bit soggy.

  • Realms Map Round-Up: Pandas, Puzzles and Egyptian Elytra

    Brave Adventurers!

    This week, we have FOUR new maps for you. They’ll let you soar across ancient ruins, saddle up sturdy panda steeds, clamber through the jungle canopy and ponder brain-bending puzzles. Mildly interested? We can work with that.

    Our first addition is a great Capture the Flag game where you use elytra wings to fly into your enemy’s base. Let’s get into it!

  • Fearsome fixes! Changelog 0.15.10 for Pocket / Win 10

    Hello! The 0.15.10 update for Pocket and Windows 10 Edition slunk out during the dark hours of the night, bringing with it the chilling Campfire Tales skin pack and squishing a fair few bugs.

    We’ve been having a few issues distributing the special MINECON skins and associated capes. They are meant to be free, but some users have been asked for money while trying to obtain them through the Google Play store. If you do get prompted for a fee, use the code MINECON2016, and it should let you have them for the correct price of zero money.

    Android users who want the skins should do this as soon as possible - the skins won’t be available for much longer!
