Depending on what system you play on, the latest update to Minecraft will go by many different names. One thing is the same across them all though, this Minecraft update adds a ton of stuff. New items, enemies, animals, even new biomes are included in this massive update. It is hitting all console versions soon, including PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

The changelog for this update is pretty massive, so click here to see everything included in it. Keep reading for our own highlights though, as we pick out just a few of the big changes coming to Minecraft on consoles.

Minecraft is all about the items that you can craft and use to build new things within the world. Here are all the new items this update brings: “Armor Stand, Raw Rabbit, Cooked Rabbit, Rabbit Stew, Raw Mutton, Cooked Mutton, Rabbit’s Foot, Rabbit Hide, Potion of Leaping, Potion of Water Breathing, Salmon, Cooked Salmon, Clownfish, Pufferfish, Blue Orchid, Allium, Azure Bluet, Tulips, Oxeye Daisy, Sunflower, Lilac, Poppy (replaces Rose), Rose Bush, Peony, Double Tall Grass, Large Ferns, Prismarine Crystals, Prismarine Shard.”

There’s also new blocks, such as the slime block and granite, along with modifications to existing ones like wet sponge. You’ll also encounter new mobs out in the world, such as “Endermite, Guardian, Elder Guardian, Rabbit, and the Chicken Jockey”. But the biggest shift probably comes from the new biomes, which are “Mesa, Mega Taiga, Roofed Forest, Birch Forest, Forest, Savanna, Extreme Hills+, Deep Ocean, Snowless Taiga, 20 new Technical Biomes.”
