Minecraft Receiving Big Boss Update October 18th For Windows 10, Gear VR And Pocket Editions
The Boss Update includes several interesting new features, including add-ons. Mojang’s Marsh Davies remarked, “They let you remix mobs, switching out the models, textures and behaviors. Rideable chickens! Ultra-explosive pigs! Et cetera!” Players will be able to customize the appearance of animals, mobs, and other items by working with JSON.
Mods tend to be a PC-specific add-on, however, the add-on’s will also work on mobile. Many Minecraft players run older versions of the game because their mods are not compatible, but going forward, anything the users builds for the game using the add-on method should continue to work in Minecraft.
The Boss Update allows players to also use stash commands. Players will be able to easily summon items, set the time, change the weather, and teleport to places. Worlds will also be able to be exported and imported with less difficulty.
The Boss Update will also add more controller options. Players will be able to utilize a wireless Xbox One controller with Bluetooth on the Windows 10 and Gear VR versions. Windows 10 will also receive Oculus Touch input support for VR.
All of the updates are coming October 18. Until then, Minecraft fans can tune in to the latest happenings at MineCon.
