4J Studios announced today that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the latest update for Minecraft have been passed along to Sony and Microsoft for certification. That means it won’t be long until the new features will patched into the game.
They’ve also released a full list of changes to expect on both platforms.
Now that the updates are in the hands of Sony and Microsoft, their release dates will rely on how long it takes the content to pass certification and make sure it’s ready to go live on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. This could be days, but in some cases, it could take weeks.
Here’s what to expect from Title Update 14 for Minecraft.
