Minecraft 1.8 Now ‘Officially’ Released

Remember earlier this weekend when Minecraft 1.8 “leaked”? You know, that totally oopsie moment when Mojang’s Notch coyly pretended it was an accident? Yeah, that was cute wasn’t it? Well, the last minute bit of viral marketing is now a thing of the past, because Minecraft 1.8 Adventure is now officially available. Head over to Mojang’s official site to find out more, or visit the Minecraft forums.

This update comes with a ton of features, including new modes and new biomes like swamps, oceans and abandoned mines, new mobs and a new health system with stackable food. There’s also new blocks, and weapons. WEAPONS!

The biggest addition is randomly generated little communities and houses. NPCs won’t be available until 1.9, so for now these towns will look like the aftermath of black plague, but still, very awesome.

While you’re deciding whether or not you can allocate the time in your schedule to become completely obsessed with this amazing game, why not enjoy this trailer. Or check out our ongoing coverage.
