Latest Minecraft Windows 10 Update Brings Bosses Into The Fold

by Mike Guarino


The Windows 10 version of Minecraft is still trying to catch up to the original PC version of the game and its massive amounts of content, but it will now be getting a new update that adds in content that users have been requesting for a while. The content in question is the addition of bosses, which is set to go live this Fall.

The update is set to bring Ocean Monuments to the game, which are rare locations that can include treasure and even the Elder Guardian boss battle. The Wither boss will also be added in with this new update, which can be summoned and defeated to collect the highly-valuable Nether Stars. Nether Stars can be used to craft beacons, which can help you get home and provide stat buffs for friends.

Slash commands are also being added into the Windows 10 version for the first time, which makes things easier with trading, spawning creatures and many other actions. The update is set to launch with 20 commands, though many more will be added in the future.

While this update is slated to hit the Windows 10, Pocket Edition and Gear VR versions of the game this Fall, more information is expected to be announced during Minecon 2016. That takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center from September 24th to September 25th in California.
