Minecraft October Update – Here’s all the new things coming to the game on consoles

On Oct. 5, the company will be delivering a free game update for all Console Editions that will bring even more long-awaited features to your game, such as:

  • New mobs: You’ll now find polar Bears (and their babies!) roaming frozen biomes
  • New items: Farm beetroots and keep yourself nourished with some healthy beetroot soup
  • Banners: Make beautiful banners to hang in your bases and spruce the place up
  • New terrain generation: You’ll find Igloos in Arctic biomes, Fossils buried underground, as well as different village paths and materials
  • New blocks: End Bricks, Beetroot, Grass Path, Frosted Ice, Magma, Nether Wart B-lock, Red Nether Brick and Bone Block

The new Minecraft October update will definitely give it a fresh look. Polar bears are also expected to arrive on the Pocket Edition of the game in the new update. We’ll keep a lookout for that and let you know if we get any confirmation on that from Mojang.

Minecraft is a sandbox video game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus “Notch” Persson and later developed and published by Mojang.
