We hope you’re having a great time playing Battle, our first mini-game for Minecraft on consoles. Getting to challenge your friends and experience Minecraft in new ways is always fun, and we’re about to introduce you to even more ways to do it. Today, we’re really excited to bring you the Tumble mini-game, available as part of the free update on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
Tumble is a frantic, competitive mini-game where your objective is to avoid taking a dip in red hot lava by making sure that other players fall into it first. You do this destroying the floor beneath your enemies’ feet as you stand in platforms that can have one or more layers. Sounds easy? Well, remember that other players will use their shovels or snowballs to get you to fall first. And when you get up to eight friends to do this at the same time, it does get a little wild.
We’re also releasing some more goodies for Battle mini-game aficionados today, with a group of three more fun maps to play. Battle Map Pack #3 is now available on PlayStation Store for €2.99 / £2.49 (or local equivalent) and includes three thrilling new maps: the colossal Castle, the incredible Shipyard and the terrifying Invasion!
The latest free update for Minecraft on consoles is available today on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. All you have to do is turn on your console and update your game — nothing extra to buy — and you’ll be dropping opponents into sizzling pools of lava in minutes.
Keep your feet on the ground, crafters!
