First Meaningful Details on Minecraft Update 1.9 Shared
Minecraft players have been waiting for update 1.9 for a while now but nothing much has been said about the new build. However, things changed when developers finally talked a bit about the update 1.9 during MineCon 2015.
Details were shared at the Upcoming Features panel, which gave us an idea of what Minecraft will look like after the release of update 1.9.
Developers shared their plans to overhaul the final boss fight aka Ender Dragon encounter. They believe that Ender Dragon isn’t challenging enough, so update 1.9 will transform Ender Dragon into a formidable foe.
Also, winning the battle will be more rewarding. By tying new drops to Ender, developers are hoping players will revisit the creature.
Moreover, development team is working on a new dimension, that can be accessed via new End Gateway. This will apparently give players a sense of progress after taking down Ender.
This new dimension is adding new food sources, new blocks, mobs and more to the game.
As for equipments, we have new spells, items, enhanced arrows and more. Spells and enhanced arrows are a major part of the new combat system under development at Mojang.
Using the inventory, players will be able to coat potions or poisons on arrows. Different coatings will have different effects on creatures and other players.
That’s all we have for now, we’ll keep you updated on any new details.
