Those of you who are familiar with my topics know that I often don't see eye to eye with 4J Studios, this next update is not such a case. Considering that 4J have actively shown off the new concrete blocks alongside shulker boxes and dual wielding! This next update is something I'm definitely behind and definitely hyped for! Not only is there a possibility that console may get these new blocks before PC does (outside of snapshots), but the fact that so much other content appears to be coming as well.
While the new dual wielding system will not be the same as the PC counterpart, you will still be able to utilize it for arrow selection as well as holding a map. Which brings me to the lack of combat content. I understand the combat update was largely unliked and I'm certain that 4J won't be implementing it anytime soon, if at all. Which for many, will bring a sigh of relief.
Amongst the new items being added in the next update is shulker boxes, which I had addressed some concerns with in a previous post. It will be interesting to see what form of limitations is applied to these items, if any. Not to mention the new generated structure coming in the next update as well, the woodland mansion. Complete with 3 new mobs and a new item. Which I wonder if the new item, totem of undying, will be capable of being held in the off hand as well.
In summary, I may not always agree with 4Js methods but I give respect where respect is due. So keep up the good work! The update is rumored to be released in the next 8-10 weeks! So get those hype engines roaring!
