In a recent interview, Notch mentions some possible up-and-coming changes for 1.8, such as boss fights, clearer boundaries and features for biomes, and more.  On Terraria-style inspired bosses, he said that "“...might end up somehow in Minecraft ... I really like that idea.”

Additionally, he mentioned the future possibility of Minecraft resembling Roguelikes, stating that having a goal, however difficult to achieve, is often a driving motivator for players, to give them a purpose in continuing on.

Stay tuned for more information!

I know this is the Adventure Update- but this is starting to sound like it's making survival mode more adventure mode than survival mode.  :huh:

Yay! Finally I can join the people who criticize an idea! I've liked every idea so far, but I HATE the defined biomes idea. Having them blend makes the world much more realistic. I would rather notch works on making biomes blend MORE not LESS. This is just really stupid and trying to copy terraria for no real reason.

Minecraft is not terraria. If I want to play that, I'll play that, if I want minecraft I want minecraft. Your game can be better than terraria.

What would the features for biomes be?

And what do they mean making boundries clearer?

hope its going to be as good as the rest of the game...     but where are these ideas coming from? did he sell out to some one thats just telling him what to do.??    OR have i been reading to many posts on these update and slowly turning in to a hate filled flamer like the reast of the trolls on the other updates????

Hmm. So now people are accusing Minecraft of copying Terraria, when people first accused Terraria of copying Minecraft? Funny how the world turns.

Please Notch don't say they'll be Creeper Boss!
cuz the regular creeper is already annoying and powerful!
but it'll be even more FUN!
