Minecraft 0.14.0 is out! Skin Pack, livestream and more!
We’re happy to let you know that the first update of the year for Minecraft: Pocket Edition and Windows 10 Beta Edition is now out! So what cool things are there? Let’s take a closer look!
Like previously talked about we got some nice additions for you Redstone builders and adventurers. Repeaters, maps and item frames among other things will help you in your building adventure and assist you making greater things, but be aware of the witches that may lure you into wrong paths…
We got a new skin pack out as well! Since we want you to build great things, we also want you to look great while doing so. These Redstone Specialists skins are inspired by the builds we’ve seen you create and I think they look great. We hope you’ll like them as well. The Artisan and Composer are free and if you’d like to buy the whole 15 skins it costs $1.99 (or equivalent).
With all these awesome things, we’re also inviting you to our livestream we’re having later today at 10 a.m PST (I think that is 19.00 here in Sweden). You will see the Minecraft developers Tommo, Daniel, Shoghi and Jason competing on a tricky Redstone puzzle map, made with today’s update. You’ll be able to catch the livestream on our YouTube and Twitch channels. Make sure you’re nice to the guys. The puzzles are supposed to make you think, so it can take a while for them to figure things out. If you’re up to the challenge you can download the map they’re going to play here (and mirror here: redstone_puzzle_map.zip)
So yeah, that’s it for now! In case you’re wondering where to get this electrifying game you can grab it on iOS App Store, Google Play, Amazon and the Windows Store.
Check out the new trailer for Pocket and Windows 10
As you might have noticed from our last update, Minecraft: Pocket Edition and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta have been getting a lot of love over the past few months. To celebrate, we’ve created a brand-new trailer that shows off some of the newer features to a soothing melody. It really is quite charming.
みんながこの前の最後のアップデートで気づいたように、Minecraft: Pocket Edition と Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta はここ数ヶ月に渡って凄く愛されてきた。そのお祝いとして、全く新しいトレイラーを作り、トレイラーで幾つかの新しい事をお披露目したいと思う。これは本当にチャーミングなんだ。
Watch the Pocket Edition devs go on a spooky journey
Unless you’ve been hiding under a cobblestone block for the past few weeks, you’ll be aware that redstone is coming to Minecraft: Pocket Edition and the Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta in the near future.
Redstone is a bit like Minecraft’s version of electrical circuitry. Though you can already make amazing builds in Minecraft: Pocket Edition and for Windows 10, redstone will provide opportunity to create actual devices, like rollercoasters, automated doors, and mob grinders. Players of the Java version of Minecraft have been using redstone for a long time now, and they’ve made things that even the cleverest of clever brains at Mojang couldn’t have predicted.
To show off just a few of the things that are possible with redstone, Shoghi and Daniel have taken on a spooky map created by our friends in Redmond, and recorded the results for your viewing pleasure. Watch the video below. Please be nice in the comments.
Microsoft が Mojang を買収してから暫くたつけど、Windows 10 に関するお報せらしい。Windows のバージョンアップでは毎回承認などの関係で色々なソフトが動かなくなる事があるが Minecraft は Microsoft が買収したおかげでその点に関しては心配なさそうだ。逆に Minecraft にサポートが期待できるかもしれない。
Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta
We have exciting news to share! A whole new version of Minecraft is on its way. This time, it’s for Windows 10 – Microsoft’s new swanky operating system that’s due for release on July 29th.
We’re calling it Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta.
Just like the first release of Minecraft all those years ago, this version will develop and evolve over time with the help of your feedback. That’s why it has “Beta” in the title – because it’s not quite finished, and will become even more fun over time. Just like the other versions of Minecraft, all future updates will be free. We spoil you. We really do.
If you’re one of the 20 million(!) players who have the PC edition of Minecraft (referred to by techy people as the Java version) you’ll be able to download Windows 10 Edition Beta from the Windows 10 store for free. Other players can get it for the paltry price of $10 during the beta period (the length of which is still being decided).
Minecraft is available on Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS, Android, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita, and now, Windows 10. Not every version of Minecraft is exactly the same, but they all feature two distinct game modes – Creative and Survival – that cater to different types of players. All versions of Minecraft support multiplayer.
You’ll recognise some Pocket Edition features in Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta, along with potpourri of cool extras. Here are some highlights:
Craft, create, and explore online with up to seven friends playing Windows 10 Edition Beta, through local multiplayer or with your Xbox Live friends online.
Play online and local multiplayer with other Pocket Edition players thanks to a free update, due to arrive soon after launch.
Multiple control schemes! Switch between controller, touch, and keyboard controls with little to no effort!
Record and share gameplay highlights with built-in GameDVR.
Help shape the future of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta with our built player feedback mechanisms!
Chickens, zombies, pigs, boats, armed skeletons, potatoes, zombies, baby squids, enchantment tables, villagers, naked sheep, iron golems, potions, ghasts, pickaxes, carrots, and all the weird and wonderful goodness you’ve come to expect from Minecraft.
We hope you’re as excited as us for Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta. It’s gonna be cool!
Thanks for reading!
*Oh, and while we’re here, don’t forget to read the easy-to-understand legalese featured below…
The “Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition” beta will be available for download in the Windows 10 Store beginning July 29. Players who already have the PC edition of “Minecraft” will be able to download the Windows 10 beta version free. Others can download “Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition” at a discounted price of $10 throughout the beta period. Players who download “Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition” during the beta phase will still have the game when it comes out of beta, and receive all future updates to the game at no additional cost.
私たちは、みんなが Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta へ来てくれる事を希望してます。とってもクールになるはず！
Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition の beta は Windows 10 ストアで7月29日からダウンロードすることができるようになる予定です。既にPC版の「Minecraft」を所有しているプレイヤーは無料で Windows 10 beta バージョンをダウンロードすることができます。それ以外の人は Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition を ベータ期間中は10ドルに割引してダウンロードすることが出来ます。ベータ期間中に Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition をダウンロードしたプレイヤーはベータが終わったときもゲームをまだ所持することが出来き、将来のアップデートを追加の費用なしで受けることが出来ます。
We’re bringing loads of new features to Minecraft: Pocket Edition. Skins! Fishing! Cool boats that support the transportation of wolves.
Skins? Sounds gross
Skins are the way you change the appearance of your Minecraft character. Instead of looking like Alex or Steve, you can roll with a different vibe, like a butcher, dog, or plumber. Skins are purely cosmetic – they don’t affect the way the game plays or give you any special abilities.
But… but… I don’t want to give you money!
That’s fine. There are a few ways to change your skin for free.
Upload a skin from the internet. Use a search engine or Minecraft skin website to find one, then upload it to Minecraft: Pocket Edition.
Create your own skin using the fantastic Minecraft: Skin Studio or your favourite piece of image editing software. Then upload it to Pocket Edition.
Use one of the free skins available in game.
I want to give you money!
Now we’re talking! Bundles of paid skins will also be available. Each pack will contain around 20 skins, and will cost $0.99/€0.79/£0.79. Our first two: City Folk and Town Folk have been designed by the talented, kind, and pixellated Army of Trolls. We’ll also give away a few free skins when each pack releases, just like on console.
I don’t want to change my skin!
That’s fine with us. We’re not going to push skins – free or paid – on our players, even though they’re super cool and you should probably get involved.
When is this happening?
We’re submitting our newest update to Pocket Edition this week. It’ll hit all versions of Pocket Edition once approved by our buddies at Apple, Android, and Windows Phone.
I don’t give a monkey’s about skins. Anything else?
Yes! The upcoming update brings loads more cool stuff. Here are some highlights from the changelog:
Multiple language support
Boats with space for two! Take your pet for a pleasant ride.
The ability to throw stuff from boats, including snowballs and eggs
Fishing! Now you can fish for fishies!
Adorable baby zombies!
Weird chicken jockeys!
Edible clownfish. Yum!
A fancy new World Edit screen so you can rename worlds, change game modes and do other things
Creative players can no longer be set on fire. Controversial
We’ve stopped cheeky chickens from walking on water
Animals can no longer breed without touching each other ooh err
Drinking milk now removes mob effects
Ridiculous amounts of bug fixes
More cool things that you should discover for yourself
That’s it for now, people.
Continue to have fun playing Pocket Edition, please. And have a nice day!
では今度はその話をしましょう！課金スキンのバンドルも利用する事も出来ます。それぞれのパックには20個近くのスキンが入っていて、値段は 0.99ドル/0.79ユーロ（訳者注：今だと120円くらい）です。私たちの初めの二つのスキンは：City Folk（都会の人） と Town Folk（町の人）です。才能があり親切で酔っ払いの Army of Trolls によってデザインされています。 また、私たちはパックをリリースする時に、家庭用ゲーム機版のように、いくつかの無料スキンも配布する予定です。
