As is there wasn't already enough to do in the vast sandbox that is Minecraft, Mojang has announced a new Glide mini game is coming to the console versions of the game. The best part? It'll be completely free for everyone. Check it out in the trailer below:
Mojang is also touting this update for some more multiplayer perks. Both Battle and Glide modes will support up to 16 players, and each console platform is getting amore spacious lobby.
The initial mini game will ship with one map, though Mojang promises more are on the way. The first map definitely looks like a doozy, though, as it transitions from wide open areas to tight holes, and back again as you descend down a spiral.
You'll be able to get your hands on the new Glide mini game with an update on the console editions of the game starting March 28.

"on Xbox One and PS4" Does that mean it--or at least all of its features--are not coming to other console editions, like Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U?
This reminds me of Nights Into Dreams
