Minecraft Pocket Edition Getting Massive Update Soon With New Biomes, New AI, And Much More

Posted on Jun 9 2014 - 1:27pm by Sean Cravener

Minecraft PE Version 0.9.0

The masterpiece that is Minecraft Pocket Edition will be getting its biggest update to date with version 0.9.0 due to release soon.

Among the first new features to be added will be unlimited worlds. Unlimited worlds mean that you won’t have that tiny little space to mess around in in your Minecraft PE game, but you will get to run aimlessly in one direction forever or at least until your battery dies. This new feature already has me excited as I found my main concern for the current version of Minecraft PE was that the worlds generated were small, but not anymore kiddos!

Version 0.9.0 will also be adding in countless new world generation features which I have listed at the bottom of this post. The game will also be updating and adding in new biomes to explore and destroy along with updated cave systems and new AIs.

This only scratches the surface of all the wonderful goodies coming to us in version 0.9.0, but if you want to see all the changes, I have listed them below for your convenience and if you still haven’t gotten Minecraft PE, you can head to the App Store and Play Store and pick up your copy for only $6.99.
