A lot is happening for Minecraft, the popular blocky building that appeals to a lot of age groups and players alike.

Over at Mojang, the developer had a bevy of announcements, so if you haven't been around to find out what's happening, there are three things to remember, whether you are playing the PC/console, the mobile, or even some coding experience.


First up, Mojang is looking at letting fans experience the Hour of Code tutorial, which lets players know the basics of coding within an hour.

"We introduce concepts of game design and computer science in easy-to-understand steps before giving insight into mob behavior and more. Of course, to be a master coder like Jens takes more than an hour's training, but this is a great place to start."

This is a nice little add-on to the community. Whether or not you are already into coding, this is a nice venture into the topic without overwhelming yourself.

Those on the PC and Mac can look forward to the Exploration Update 1.11. This update has finally crossed the snapshot venture to become a full release. This particular update is great for fans who are treasure hunt lovers, as it makes use of the Cartographer, new villagers that provide maps, and even some spells that will serve as challenges for players.


Finally, Minecraft Pocket Edition and Minecraft Windows 10 Beta will finally get the Ender update. This not only brings a number of significant features, but also The End and The Ender Dragon. However, even though the update title seems very suggested, it's far from being the end of the updates for the Minecraft Pocket Edition and Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta.
