Minecraft TU14 screenshot and details


Now that Minecraft is on more consoles than ever, it’s time for the game to expand yet again with a new update. 4J Studios has teased some changes with the screenshot above, showing new interfaces and new things in old interfaces. There’s a lot being shown off; from dyed armor to plant pots to wool carpets, there seems to be a lot coming in TU14. Co-Optimus has put into words the major parts of the new update, in case you don’t want to study the picture for an hour.

Temples have been added to the jungles and deserts, bearing great treasures for those who make it past the various booby traps. You’ll now be able to trade with villagers; give them the items they want; and they’ll give you a brand new item: emeralds. If you’re hungry, a bounty of new food options including carrots, potatoes and pumpkin pies will be available. Anvils will give players the ability to upgrade and name their gear, or recreate classic Looney Toons cartoons. While all these additions sound great, the bad news is the release date for TU14 has yet to be announced.

Minecraft Skyrim mash-up coming tomorrow

Dragonborns and Minecraft players, rejoice! The official trailer has been released for the Skyrim Mash-Up Pack, showcasing the Dovahkiin’s hijinks as he ventures through blocky recreations of famous Skyrim locales. The DLC will included the pre-build world seen in the trailer as well as a Skyrim-themed texture pack, 40 new skins, new UI and 20 songs from the Skyrim soundtrack.

First Xbox One TV ad has global touch

In a post over at PlayXBLA, the first Xbox One TV ad was shown, and for an advertisement released first in the American TV market, it has a distinct international flavor. Throughout the commercial, real people and fictional characters across the world invite other people to join the ranks of Xbox One players. The global messaging ties into Microsoft’s broader worldwide strategy, and given the strong European presence, it seems that finally cracking the European market is very high on the priority list. Certainly, any commercial featuring football star Stephen Gerrard is likely to turn a few international heads.

Invitation has an edge, but it stays light and accessible, which is exactly what Microsoft needs in this launch period. Historically, some of the marketing and presentation has been too heavy-handed or has tended to come off slightly tone-deaf, so hopefully this ad marks a major step in what has so far been a promising turnaround from Microsoft.

Though, it should be noted that there is a distinct lack of Killer Instinct in the TV spot.
