Minecraft Console Edition

Nice! Minecraft’s About To Get A PvP Battle Mode


This is some cool news: very soon, it will be possible to fight your friends in duels that take place in the Minecraft world. Minecraft manager Jaime Lymon described it like so:

“Battle allows you to set up a competitive multiplayer fight for survival, where speed, strategy- and sometimes just pure luck- will make you the winner. Players in Battle matches use randomly generated resources found in chests placed in specially designed PVP maps and combat one another in a free for all death match until the final victor is determined. The fun’s not all over after you are defeated though, as fallen players can spectate the combat among remaining players in the match by freely flying around each arena as a bat. Battle matches can be played with up to four players in split-screen and up to 8 players online via Xbox Live. Or, you can find other community members to join your game via an in-game matchmaking system.”

This new mode will be introduced to console users of Minecraft first, and be free of charge. Later additional maps will be sold for a fee. Battle Mode will arrive sometime within the next month, and Mojang says other mini-games are on the way as well.
