The floor comes tumbling down with Minecraft's new Tumble mini-game for Xbox

Mojang and Microsoft have added the new Tumble mini-game to Minecraft as a free update for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 console versions. The multiplayer mode has players destroying the blocks beneath their opponents in an attempt to make them fall down into the lava.

Microsoft states:

Tumble is a frantic competitive mini game where your objective is to avoid taking a dip in red hot lava by making sure that other players fall into it first. You get to do this by destroying the floor beneath your enemies' feet as you stand in platforms that can have one or more layers. Sound easy? Well, remember that other players will use their shovels or snowballs to get you to fall first. And when you get up to eight friends to do this at the same time, it does get a little wild.

In addition, Microsoft has released three more levels for the previously launched Battle mode for Minecraft. The three maps can be downloaded for the price of $2.99 and includes "the colossal Castle, the incredible Shipyard and the terrifying Invasion!".
