A new Minecraft update is heading out for PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, and pretty much every other platform that the massively popular open-world game is available on. This isn’t a massive update, but it is big enough to warrant checking out the extensive patch notes. It looks like all versions are getting pretty much the same patch, so just keep reading to see what to expect from this new Minecraft update.
Minecraft Update 38 on Xbox One or 1.41 on PS4 has a long list of bug fixes that it addresses, all listed in the patch notes. You can click here for the full list from 4J Studios, but we’ve pulled out a few highlights that seem like more impactful changes for the game.

Fix for crash when spawning too many Shulkers. Added new 11 achievements/trophies for Survival. Added new 7 achievements/trophies for Tumble.” And more.
Minecraft updates are always a nice time to jump back into the long running game. I always seem to hit the game in waves, playing it extensively for a few weeks or months before I kind of get tired of it, or my friends get addicted to some other new game. Then a new update hits and I’m right back in the mine, desperately searching for diamonds. When was the last time you were truly hooked on Minecraft? Let us know in the comments.
