200px-Xbox_360_Edition

 

UPDATE: 4J Studios has sent out a Tweet confirming that the 8th update for the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft will be released tomorrow, January 31st: “Roll-out of TU8 is expected to begin around 10am UK time on 30th January. It can take some time before it’s available worldwide.”

ORIGINAL STORY: 4J Studios, the crew in charge of the Xbox 360 edition of the legendary block-based digging simulator Minecraft, have revealed the details on their 8th update for the game which will fix a considerable number of problems. Uh, that’s it, really. I always feel like I’m somehow short-changing people with these incredibly short news post where I just copy and paste a list and barely have to write anything, which is baffling because I’m no charging anybody to read this, so how could I be short-changing them? Maybe I should just stop padding this post out.

4J Studios also released a Tweet regarding the release date for this update: “we’re hoping it’s this month, but we need to wait and see how it does in Cert Testing.”

Here’s the full patch notes:

About Baden Ronie

I always hate writing about myself, it's such a pain in the ass to know where I should start. I'm twenty-two years young and love to play, as you may have already guessed. When WolfsGamingBlog.com started up it was simply because I found writing to be a good form of stress relief for when my Cystic Fibrosis was getting me down or simply because I had been having a bad week. When I started writing I never dreamed that people would actually read it, or that it would ever get this big. It's mind boggling. My writing isn't the best, but through trial, error and the comments of readers I strive to improve it so I can provide fair reviews. My ultimate goal is to prove that not everyone in the gaming media are corrupt idiots intent on delivering false reviews. Other than that I'm a fully qualified lifeguard and used to teach first-aid and life-saving skills to kids. What more is there to say? Hmmm, well I love music, reading and films. I'm a drummer, enjoy going swimming and tend to get distracted by shiny objects. Is that a fifty-pence?

  1. I’m glad to hear about this! I’ve been meaning to get into Minecraft for so long, but haven’t been able to. Hopefully I’ll soon be able to. :)

  2. ‘Bit annoyed that the End wasn’t added, even though End Portal Frame had been added, but hey, I guess I’ll have to wait!

  3. I’m loving the sound of the texture packs!
