[ Gaming]

Minecraft Pocket Edition for Android got an update today, adding survival mode and some other features.

Here’s the full list of what’s new, from the Android Market:

1. Major version 0.2.0 (first survival update)
2. New mode! Choose between Survival and Creative mode when creating a map
3. New blocks; most notably doors, fences and fence gates
4. Added flying to Creative mode (double tap jump)
5. Added mobs; sheep and zombies being the first
6. Day and night in Survival mode, with monsters coming at night…
7. Gather resources from nature!
8. Tools for different purposes (digging, attacking.. shearing :))

While the update has only come to Android devices so far, it looks like iOS won’t be far behind, as it’s only waiting on Apple’s approval.

Minecraft designer Daniel Kaplan tweeted this morning:

MCPE is out for Android. For iOS we just have to wait for Apple to approve the update. Plox RT to your friends <3 7 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Top Rated White Papers and Resources
  • Lane Curtis

    How soon???

    • http://www.webpronews.com/author/chris-crum Chris Crum

      If you’re referring to iOS, I guess that’s up to Apple.

      • Lane Curtis

        Are zombies going to be the only mob? And will there ever be lava and water blocks that you can place?

        • Ryan

          Yes for now zombies are the only mobs. The next mobs to be added are probably going to be creepers, endermen, pigs, chickens, and cows.

        • Ryan

          Srry forgot to include this! Yes. There will most likely be water and/or lava blocks (that can be placed) in one of the next updates. They said they r going to try to include all the desktop features eventually.

  • Ryan

    Is there a rough estimate of when it will come out? I REALLY want this Update as I have sampled it on my phone and I’m waiting on the full version for iPad to get the update.

    • Lane Curtis

      How long does it take apple to approve it?!

  • Ryan

    Thats what I’m trying to find out lol! I read sew here it can be up to 6 days :O

  • Ryan

    Somewhere* not sew here lol it’s my iPad autocorrect

  • Ryan

    When is it coming out

    • http://None Hjfkgyrjf

      I think either tonight or tomorrow

  • Ryan

    Uh I hope that last person isn’t supposed to be me because it isn’t lol

  • Pres10

    will strong holds ever be brought into pocket edition, or the nether?

  • http://None Hjfkgyrjf

    How long does it usually take for apple to approve? Can u connect the lite version with the full version?

  • Ryan

    Eventually they will be. Like I said before: they are planning to implement most, if not all, of the features in the desktop version. They are getting there….. Be patient….. It will come….. In the mean time before more mobs come, I would prepare giant “fortress” that is creeper-proof with many layer walls, and cannons like in the full of version.

    • Lane Curtis

      Cool im about to make a protective fortress too. :)

  • Ryan

    The range of time it takes Apple to approve apps/updates is generally 1 hour to 5 days. And no u can’t connect the lite to the full.

    • http://None Hjfkgyrjf

      Thanks

      • Liam

        Yes you can. Me and my siblings do it all the time. My little sister has the lite version and she can connect.

    • Lane Curtis

      Where did u see that at?

      • Ryan

        I don’t remember…. I just read it yesterday

        • Lane Curtis

          Isnt it suppose to come tonight or tommorow?

  • http://PoliticalAmerica Andrew

    Will they add TNT To pocket edition?

  • Ryan

    I think they will. I really hope it comes with red stone and levers so we can make it explode. Lol

  • Noah

    I like this game very much, my only question is when will crafting be put in?

    • Ryan

      The next update will likely have crafting

  • Liam

    I am sooo exited! My friend has it on the droid and it’s soooooooooooooo awesome. He played it with his sister and I guess you can wack each other, now I can build battle arenas!!!!!!! I can see this game becoming a lot like the computer version. Right now I am waiting for it to come out on the iPad/iOS.
    WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Braydon

  • me

    ANYone know the minecraft for xbox relese day?

    • http://None Hjfkgyrjf

      Same but for American app store

  • Joshua

    Questions. How do you go down in flying mode? How long does it take apple to approve? Will past saved worlds be still availble for creative? Is survival multiplayer and is creative multiplayer? Please answer D:

  • Parker

    To fly you apparently double tap in the new update. Creative will be multiplayer and as far as I can tell survival will be to. Lastly that what we are all wondering, apple needs to prioritize their updates! This is the only one people care about

  • Jordan dale

    Im on iPhone 4s will I keep my current worlds

  • Parker

    You’ll keep your worlds but you’ll have to start new survival map if you want to play survival

    • Lane Curtis

      Ugh! Will zombies be in creative too?

  • Ryan

    No. Zombies will not be in creative. For now mobs are only in survival.

    • Lane Curtis

      Will u be able to switch a creative world to survival?

      • Ryan

        No. U can’t switch a creative world to survival easily. I was browsing through minecraftforum.net and found a way though. I wouldn’t consider it easy though. To check it out and register there! Lots of helpful info! ;)

  • Mi

    There will also be sheep and zombie mobs

  • Eli

    My cousin got it on his droid yesterday, and I hate to admit it, but I’m sooooo jealous! Can’t believe it’s still not out yet…

  • urbanan

  • Lane Curtis

    I wonder if apple sent the update back to Mojang yet?…

    • Notch

      I read somewhere that its coming a couple of hours.. They Cleared the App reviews… That might be a sign that its coming very very very very sooner than u think…

      • Ben

  • Ginny

  • inny

  • Vinny

  • Ryan

    Some commenter on the app store page said he emailed apple and got a response that said: with all of the feedback we are getting from how long it is taking us to review this, we have an estimated release of feb 13 at 12:30am…. I hope he wasn’t being a troll… (*The reply he got wasn’t those exact words but to the same effect as those so basically this is what Apple said*)

    • Urbanan

      Troll!!!!!

  • KeenForMCPE

    is the 0.2.0 update out for ios yet?

    • Urbanan

      No

  • Jaymi

    Hey it should be out on the 16 or 17 th because it usually take 6 or 7 days for apple to aprove the update.

  • http://None Hjfkgyrjf

    I’m ready to buy an android.

  • http://None Urbanan

    If I make a world with the old version when I update it will the world be a creative one?

    • Jaymi

      Yes it will automaticity be creative

  • Urbanan

    I’m ready to buy an android. One Question though, if I have a world now in the update will it be survival or creative?

  • Jaymi

    Creative

  • Urbanan

  • Nick

  • Glare108

    Im hoping they’re just saving it for the holiday (feb 14 vt day) but it sounds pretty legit that it’s gonna be released to ios on the 16 or 17 knowing how gay apple is when it comes down to us fanboys waiting.
