The update for the games should also be heading your way today, bringing a lot of new additions to the game, as well as tweaking some things that are already there. Here is a short list of just a few of the changes for which you should be looking out.

-Offended by mountains and caverns? Worry not, strange crafter, because now you have the option to customize your super-flat worlds so they’re only as vertical as you desire.
-New blocks! Oak, Spruce, Birch and Jungle wood types. Fences, Gates and Doors! Create the log cabin of your dreams.
-A heap of new game options! Change the game mode, difficulty, time, player spawn position, ambient cave sounds, and weather without leaving your game session. Very handy.
-Classic crafting! Now console players get to craft items just like their PC buddies on Java Minecraft. Some players find this style of creation more satisfying. Check it out.
-New stuff! Iron Trapdoors, Inverted Daylight Sensors, Book & Quills, and Stained Glass have arrived. Use them wisely, and for good, please.
