Minecraft Xbox 360 dev considering new update ahead of 1.8.2

Monday, 10th September 2012 12:36 GMT By Dave Cook

Minecraft Xbox 360 developer 4J Studios has revealed that it may implement some features from Minecraft PC update 1.2.3 before its next Xbox update goes live. It’s an attempt to give fans something new instead of having to wait so long for the next full update.

4J Studios stated on its official Twitter, “We’re considering releasing an update between 1.8.2 and 1.2.3 to reduce the time people have to wait for the new features.”

Minecraft Xbox 360 update 1.8.2 is not due for a while yet, but will finally add Creation Mode into the mix.

4J’s Twitter added that update 1.8.2 will not include XP, “Yes, XP doesn’t really make sense without the enchanting table (added in 1.9pre3), so we’ve remove XP and XP bar from 1.8.2.”

It’s still unclear what Minecraft PC 1.2.3 features 4J Studios is planning on bringing to the Xbox 360 version, but we’ll keep our ears to the ground for further updates from the team.

Thanks OXM.

    Eh? They are considering an update between the yet to arrive 1.8.2 and 1.2.3, so how is that ahead of 1.8.2?

    @1 They’re going to add a set of features from the PC build as a small update before the full 1.8.2 update launches. Just to give fans something to keep them happy until then.

    @2
    Nah I think this is referring to an update post 1.8.2 and pre 1.2.3. The tweet was in response to …

    “Will you be working on the 1.2.3 update after 1.8.2?”
    –>
    “We’re considering releasing an update between 1.8.2 and 1.2.3 to reduce the time people have to wait for the new features.”

    So it’s to reduce the wait between 1.8.2 and 1.2.3 rather than the wait for 1.8.2… I think… stupid numbering system :)

    @3 – Yep, this patch would come after 1.8.2, not before it

    The numbering system is all screwed up because Mojang took the Minecraft beta patches all the way up to 1.8 before releasing the “official” version and starting over at 1.0. The Xbox 360 version is following the same upgrade path.
