Minecraft is Getting a New Monster: The Wither Boss

A new mob has appeared in the most recently released version snapshot for Minecraft — and it’s kinda creepy.

The monster is known as the Wither Boss, and you can catch a little video of it below. We don’t know much more than that, though, as the mob was discovered with a little bit of finagling from PCGamesN. The Wither Boss heaves skulls at you and your pets, which explode and, in addition, inflict players with a “withering” affect, it seems. It also wreaks destruction on just about everything it encounters, including other mobs, which makes it sounds a little bit like the dragons that appear in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

The Wither Boss isn’t in Minecraft yet, but it should be soon. Oh, and it has 300 hit points, which means it’s going tobe hard as hell to kill, especially when you’re exploding and covered in disease.
