Minecraft update 1.4 to contain passive bats, new sounds

Friday, 21st September 2012 14:16 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Minecraft snapshot features have shown off a new mob. It’s a bat, and found in caves in the game. As in real life, they are only active during the evening and are passive creatures which will fly off when disturbed. If you decide to be mean and kill one anyway, they won’t drop anything – yet. Bats are part of October’s Pretty Scary Update, also known as 1.4, which includes the Wither, and other mobs as well as new sounds for mobs, tools, water and footsteps. Thanks, PCGamesN.

    Eh. I actually like that everyday animals aren’t meant to be cannon-fodder in Minecraft, so I hope they never will. I mean, yeah, you can kill them. But all you get from doing so is that feeling that you might just be a massive jerk.

    Plus, I like bats, so I’ll be amused to see their Minecraftian representations fluttering about.
