Because of its PC origins, no one was really surprised when the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft started to take a backseat to the original. That said, the two games are about to become a whole lot closer in scope as developer 4J Studios prepares to roll out Minecraft 360’s Adventure Update.
4J tweeted the following earlier today, confirming that the update is coming along and that we should be seeing it relatively soon:
“We’re still working on [update version] 1.8.2. A few things left to add, more work on the Creative Mode interface, then lots of test. Still weeks away,”
We’ve been told time and again that the 360 version of Minecraft is a different game than its PC counterpart, but with this update, which will include Adventure mode, new Survival gameplay, and Creative mode, Minecraft 360 fans will finally have similar opportunities as those playing on the PC.
We’ll keep you updated as more details (and a possible launch date) are revealed in the coming weeks.
