Minecraft gets Pandas, but it’s not even the main news from Mojang

Minecraft developers promised fans the crossbows, Scripting API, a dungeon crawler-style spin-off and much more

During Minecon this weekend Microsoft owned studio Mojang announced Minecraft: Dungeons, a spin-off from the original game that plays as a dungeon crawler.

Up to four players can battle together through action-packed, treasure-stuffed, wildly varied levels, all in an epic quest to save the villagers and take down the evil Arch-Illager!

This Diablo-like game will be out in 2019, no additional information about the release has been given.

The main game also gets a lot of love with “Village and Pillage” updates. Minecraft is getting new NPCs and enemies, like crossbows-wielding Pillagers. Players can also craft a crossbow of their own to defend with ranged attacks.

With the new update Minecraft officially embraces it’s modding community for the first time since it was released.

We’ve never officially supported modding in Minecraft, but the Add-Ons system combined with the Scripting API is the beginning of the era where we do.

Server masters will be able to better control which mobs exist in their worlds. They also get new ways to modify them and supervise their spawning rates.

Animations will give you more customization options, so you’ll be able to craft the horrifying eight-legged mob of your dreams/our nightmares. Particles will let you pretty up your mobs with cool effects. All of these features are on the way and you can try them in the Minecraft beta on October 3rd.

Oh, one more thing, Pandas are entering Minecraft world. That’s right, Pandas!
