[News] Minecraft 0.16.0 Finally Released

After months of 0.16.0 beta builds, Minecraft 0.16.0 is finally rolling out to every player on iOS, Android, and Windows 10. The new update includes heaps of amazing new features, such as new mobs, and the amazing new addons & plugins system. Finally, everyone can fight the wither and run command without having to use mods or the beta builds.

One of the features we’ve been most excited about is addons & plugins, which you can read all about here. Addons let you totally revolutionise how an animal behaves. For example, you could make chickens twice as big, or have explosive sheep.

Along with the ability to edit mobs, the update also introduced a few new animals. Withers and guardians are all new to this packed update.
