Minecraft Pocket Edition players will fight The Ender Dragon soon
Players of the Android Minecraft Pocket Edition version can look forward to a huge update for the popular sandbox game by the end of the year. The Ender Update will bring the game up to version 1.0 on Android, ditching its official “beta” label, while adding the majority of features that were included in the original PC version of Minecraft.
Here’s what Minecraft Pocket Edition players can expect when they get a chance to download The Ender Update:
The 1.0 Ender Update will add a third dimension to Minecraft – the End, and its iconic ultimate boss battle, the Ender Dragon. But that’s not all – after defeating the Ender Dragon, you’ll be able to explore the outer islands of the End and its mysterious End Cities. In these End Cities you can encounter the new Shulker mob, pick up cool purple blocks for building (aptly called purpur), farm chorus plants, and even loot the highly coveted Elytra glider from an End ship.
In addition to all that, the world height in the game will be increased to 256 blocks, or double what the game currently supports. That could result in Minecraft players creating some huge structures within the Pocket Edition.
If you are on Android, you have the chance to try out all of these new Ender Update features ahead of its official release by signing up to get early versions from the Google Play Store. If you don’t want to deal with bugs and issues with early releases, you can simply wait until the final version is made available for Minecraft Pocket Edition for $6.99.
