Get a Map To Help A Charity

Minecraft Package ‘The Traveling Trader’ Remains Free

The studio behind Minecraft, Mojang, made a $10,000 donation in March to the Charity: Water, an organization that helps spread the ability to access clean water to people who have difficulty getting it. In April, Mojang promised to give more so long as “The Traveling Trader” map and skin pack was downloaded 10,000 times across the PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android communities. Unsurprisingly this goal was ripped to shreds, as the map was downloaded over 10,000 times in 24 hours and has since passed 100,000 downloads. Thanks to this success, Mojang has donated another $90,000 to Charity: Water.

Or your least favorite, if that's what you're into.

You Can Now Play As Your Favorite FFXV Characters In Minecraft

Based on the amount of coverage dedicated to it, you'd think that Minecraft has faded into the ether.  Honestly, though, it's because there just isn't much to say about it anymore.  It continues on its monolithic path and, based on sales figures, practically everyone in the world has had a chance to play it and determine whether or not it's for them.

I love that commercial where the polar bears drink the Nuka Cola

Festive Pack for Minecraft: Windows 10, Fallout for Console Editions

The Windows 10 Edition of Minecraft got a big update earlier this week that brings the version number up to 1.0; though it's still in beta, apparently. Anyways, along with that update, there's some "Festive Mash-Up" DLC available to purchase so you can deck the halls and all that jazz. The console versions aren't being left out of the DLC fun as they just got the "Fallout Mash-Up" DLC.

[E3 2016] Friendly Update to Minecraft Allows for Cross-Platform Play

No Microsoft E3 conference would be complete without mention of the world-building juggernaut that is Minecraft. Last year they showed what could be possible with the HoloLens (whenever that materializes) and this year they're focusing more on the gaming together side of things. The new "Friendly Update" will allow PC (Windows 10 edition), mobile device, and VR players to all join and play in the same Realm.

Mining simulator finally allows flight, players rejoice.

Flying Capes Will Soon Be Coming To Minecraft

At a rate only slightly faster than that of actual aeronautic engineering, Minecraft has finally given Survival Mode players a chance to soar around their maps and marvel at their sprawling fortresses and hilarious Simpsons statues.  No longer must you clamber up the nearest mountain to snap a fancy photo of your Green Hill Zone replica.  Instead, a simple hillside and the brand new cape will probably suffice.

Bring a pet in your boat! AAHHH!

Minecraft: Pocket Edition Adds Skin Support, Fishing, Baby Zombies

You know how mobile ports of PC and console games always get left behind when it comes to new features? Minecraft: Pocket Edition players know what I'm talking about. The portable version of the block stacking game inches closer to parallel features for its PC counterpart, including fishing, skin support, and boats that hold a player and their pet. Aww!

Minecraft: Pocket Edition Updates to Include Co-Op

If you've been pecking around with Minecraft: Pocket Edition these past few years, you've probably noticed one major feature has been missing: co-op play. Ok, so there are a lot of features missing from Minecraft mobile when compared to the desktop or Xbox 360 versions, but co-op is a key component to building things like a 1-to-1 replica of old Rome or a rollercoaster ride inspired by the Beetlejuice cartoon. Every grand project needs willing slave workers. Just ask the ancient Egyptians!
