Console update ahoy: Banners, Blocks, Beets & Bears!

It’s here! Rolling out across consoles today and tomorrow: an update that brings polar bears young and old, customisable banners, beetroots and related restorative soups, new blocks, buildings and more.

The update will hit Xbox consoles first today, along with Wii U in the US, and then follow along with other consoles tomorrow.

You’ll be able to take shelter from the harsh weather of Arctic Biomes in new igloos, and delve beneath the earth for primordial treasures in the shape of giant fossils made of Bone Blocks.

Other new blocks include: End Bricks, Grass Path, Frosted Ice, Magma, Nether Wart Block and Red Nether Brick. And that ain’t all: the update also signals the availability of the sumptuous Chinese Mash Up Pack. It’s super-pretty.

Enjoy!

Cheerio!
