Those who’ve been following my articles on Minecraft: Pocket Edition ($6.99) know what feature I’ve been patiently (and impatiently) waiting to see come to the game, and we are finally getting it in the upcoming 1.0 update, or The Ender Update. Yes, we are finally getting the original soundtrack, and I can’t wait for it. It will be a separate download, so if you don’t have the space you shouldn’t worry about it. The iconic Minecraft music is for me one of the best parts of the game, and I’m very excited to finally have it in MCPE. The Ender Update is bringing much more than just the music, though. We are also getting The End, which makes the game a “complete loop" as the developers call it.
The End is coming to MCPE with all its sights and sounds: Shulkers, Elytra, End Ships, and the Ender Dragon. For those who are into questing, now you have the ultimate prize to hunt for. We are also getting Polar Bears and Igloos in the Snowy biomes and a new World Seed Library, an ever-growing curated list of fantastic seeds. We don’t have a release date yet, but I don’t think it’s going to be too far off given that Mojang is celebrating MCPE‘s 5th anniversary and might want to give us all a present. I’m very excited about this update, and I can’t wait to go exploring and crafting while listening to that amazing music.
