I bring news of skins, achievements, and music! Let’s get on with it.
When most players begin their Minecraft adventure there aren’t many looks to choose from. In fact, you only get to play as our blue-shirted friend. Now, everyone loves Steve – he’s probably the most famous minecrafter in the world, and has excellent stubble.
But jolly old Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of our playerbase. For that reason, we’re giving all players opportunity to play with an Alex skin instead. She brings thinner arms, redder hair, and a ponytail; she actually looks a bit like Jens from certain angles.
Players on all consoles will get the Alex skins for free this Wednesday.
Playstation people get The Simpsons!
Playstation players are getting another skin pack this week. The Simpsons, and a bunch of their their closest friends, enemies, and acquaintances are on the way. The bundle includes Principal Seymour Skinner, Groundskeeper Willie, everyone’s favourite… Dewey Largo (!) and a lot more. Download it from Wednesday, if you like.
The Simpsons skin pack is already available on Microsoft consoles.
Xbox 360 users get extra achievements and bonus tunes!
Achievements – some love ‘em, some are indifferent to them, some don’t even know they exist. I know Marc is really, really into them them; take from that what you will.
Until now, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition has included more achevements than 360 Edition. That’s a bit silly when you think about it. This update will add 30 new achievements to the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft, boosting the potential gains to a smooth 1000 gamerscore. Hunt them down but don’t let them rule your playtime. And don’t forget to eat or go to the toilet.
We’re also bringing a bundle of new music tracks to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. After this update there’ll be more of C418’s plinky plonky goodness in-game. Nice.
That’s it for now! Have a great week and thanks for playing Minecraft, y’all.
今まで、マインクラフト XBOX ONE 版には XBOX 360版より多くの実績が含まれて、実績について考えると、それはちょっとだけ馬鹿げていた。このアップデートでは 30 の新しい実績が XBOX 360 バージョンのマインクラフトに追加されます。これにより 1000 ゲーマースコアは押し上げるでしょう。実績を手に入れろ、しかし君のプレイ時間をそれに支配されてはいけない。あと、食べるのとトイレに行くのは忘れないでね。
マインクラフト XBOX 360 版には、新しいミュージックトラックのバンドルも持ってきたよ。このアップデートの後から、ゲーム内で C418 のシンプルでいい感じの曲が増えるよ。
We have released a new version of Minecraft 1.8, called 1.8.4, which is now available for download in your launcher. This release fixes a few reported security issues, in addition to some other minor bug fixes & performance tweaks.
This version is fully compatible with all previous 1.8 versions, but it is still highly recommend to update to 1.8.4 as soon as possible.
In order to perform some much needed updates to our databases we have decided to schedule a maintenance session. It will take place Tuesday April 14 from 08:00 to 12:00 CEST (UTC+2).
During the maintenance period you will not be able to log in to Minecraft, Scrolls, or Cobalt. You will also not be able to join Minecraft servers (including Minecraft Realms). Most of our websites will also be unavailable. This does not affect Minecraft: Pocket Edition or the console editions of Minecraft.
We’re of course sorry about any inconvenience this may cause you. Rest assured that we would not be doing this unless it was absolutely necessary.
「Minecraft 1.10: The Love and Hugs Update」と銘打たれた今回のアップデート。Mojangの説明によると、スタジオの面々はこれまで多数のファンと会う機会があったとのこと。年齢の幅も広く、3歳から90代まで様々なユーザーが存在することをここ数年感じ取り、自分たちがとてもユニークな立ち位置に居ることを気付かされたと実感。『Minecraft』という作品の方向性を大きく変えることにした、と伝えています。
