Plus, grab a bevy of new PlayStation themed costumes

Exciting news for Minecraft players! Today we’re rolling out the biggest update ever and with it comes some of the most highly anticipated Minecraft features – a long list of new potions, blocks, mobs and biomes.

From the Redwood forests of Mega-Taiga to the vastness of the Deep Ocean, you´ll get to build, play and explore new biomes that will offer a great canvas for your creations. The update also brings new blocks like Granite, Red Sandstone, Sea Lanterns, Slime and Packed Ice to consoles, as well as beautiful gardens of Blue Orchids, Sunflowers, Azure Bluets, Tulips, Lilacs, and other florid content.

Also, there are rabbits now. We can’t forget the bunnies! Watch out though – they’re hungry and will eat your crops.

dunno when its out but ps plus got a free xmas theme – i was expecting a snowing scene theme now a christmas tree with ps4 games in it oh well better then nothing

Thanks heaps for this update. I am really looking forward to it! :)

I’m really excited for this! Can you tell me, do I need to create a new world or will the new content spawn in as-yet-undiscovered chunks of my current one?

Yes, you’ll need to create a new world.

You will need to start a new world unfortunately. Still, it’s a good excuse to start over :)

I have a large PS4 map which isn’t fully explored. When I went to an unexplored map area it generated as new content. I have begun chopping some of the new trees down and started to grow them near my current building in an old map area. Also bonemeal the ground will generation some of the new flowers.

Not sure if this will get all new content on an old map, but its certain allowed me access to some of the new content on an old map.

Still will get bored though as minecraft doesn’t keep me occupied long enough!

Thank you Microsoft! It’s good to see good games on the PlayStation… /grin

What date for the update

9.1

It’s already out in the EU. You should check your own blog, not here.

Apparently PS Vita users will have to wait a week. :(

It would be good to see a graphical update and randomised missions from villagers

Get village people to follow to spawn in new areas to build for. you can trap and push it ridiculous won’t get far.

Add me guys and on Jan 1st 2016, I would need help do build my City and to present all of you who help and it won’t just me a city, it will have a lot of redstone in its build and I will try to make everything and every build look real and function.oh and in the city If I could manage I would put mini games,zombie,waves,parkour,puzzles etc. Hope you help…by the way I still don’t have my ps4 But one Dec 25 I will get it and I would play so you could play with me on that day, I would have gta 5 and cod bo3 and other games
