Check out the trailer for Minecraft's Ender Update, coming soon to Pocket and Windows 10 editions

Minecraft's Pocket and Windows 10 Editions are about to take a big step forward to version 1.0, and a new trailer is here to show off more of the update that will herald it all. Coming soon to both editions, The Ender Update will bring the End Dimension, the Ender Dragon, and a number of other new features that will push Minecraft Pocket and Windows 10 towards further feature parity across versions. Check out the trailer embedded below for more:

Microsoft also revealed some more features coming in the update with a separate post on Xbox Wire:

  • We'll be adding a special feature called the World Seed Library to help you more easily find worlds with features you've been looking for. We'll be populating the library and refreshing it periodically with a collection of dozens of amazing seeds for you to try.
  • Folks who are more partial to colder climes will find chilly locales in their worlds populated by polar bears, and happen across igloos whilst exploring.
  • MUSIC! Finally, Pocket Edition crafters will be able to join their Windows 10 Edition counterparts and enjoy playing the game with the original soundtrack. This is set as a separate, optional download rather than directly part of the main game download, so that we can be kind to your bandwidth.
  • For folks who enjoy playing the Windows 10 Edition in VR with their Oculus Rift, we'll be adding support for Oculus Touch input.

All of this comes just over five years since Minecraft: Pocket Edition first launched. You can read a little more about how far Pocket Edition has come since its 2011 launch in Microsoft's full blog post. In the meantime, let us know in the comments below what you're most looking forward to when the Ender Update hits the Pocket and Windows 10 Editions!
