Minecraft Pocket Edition Gets Discovery Update

The Pocket Edition of Minecraft has just been updated to version 1.1 and contains a bunch of new updates, enhancements and features. This updated is called theĀ Discovery Update.

Let’s take a quick look at what is in there.

  • Llamas!
    I mean, do we really need to say anything more? Minecraft without llamas is like, well, playing an endless game of tic-tac-toe.
  • The Marketplace
    Minecraft bills it as the best way to connect to a universe of content, including community creations. This appears to be Minecraft’s way of letting Pocket Edition users download and install a fraction of the content (like Minecraft Maps) that Desktop users can download. It looks like you’ll have to pay real money to get these virtual goods (boo!)
  • Forest Mansions
    These are mystery zones (I liken them to Elf villages from Lord of the Rings) complete with villagers and the totem of undying.
  • A whole bunch of other updates…
    Almost too much to cover.

The update shipped a few days ago (on June 1) so get in there and download!
