Biggest ever Minecraft update launches today!


Nov 9, 2015
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.

If you’re more into embarking on fantastic adventures in your worlds, fear not – we have you covered. The update includes subaquatic Ocean Monuments where Elder Guardians await to test your courage. Rare materials and treasure chambers await those who dare enter.

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

Haven’t played Minecraft on your favorite console yet? There’s never a better time to start. We’ve also introduced a brand new tutorial world showcasing some of the new content in this update to ease you in to the endless gameplay possibilities in Minecraft.

The biggest free update of all time is out now on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita very soon after.

That’s not all for free content though! We’re also celebrating the second birthday of Minecraft on PlayStation consoles with an exclusive PlayStation Birthday Pack! From now up until 29th December, you can download the following PlayStation-themed goodies:

  • Party hats based on Ratchet & Clank, God of War and Sly Cooper
  • A Clank suit
  • Sackboy and Sackgirl party clothes
  • Sly Cooper and Kratos Hawaiian shirts

So what are you waiting for? Join us in celebrating Minecraft on your PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 or PS Vita and get downloading! We hope you enjoy all the new content. Happy exploring (and mining)!
