There Are Witches In Minecraft Now


We have full details on the new content Microsoft is putting into the free update planned for the Windows 10 and mobile versions of Minecraft. What we can’t tell you for sure is if this material will make it to the other versions, but given their userbase is far larger, I see no reason to assume they won’t.

The new Overworld Update will add the following:

  • More redstone components (comparators, repeaters, dispensers, droppers, hoppers, trapped chests and additional minecart types)
  • Witches and witch huts
  • Witches’ cauldrons will contain a random potion
  • Cauldrons will be able to dye armor
  • Display gear in your home with Item Frames
  • Maps will be placeable on walls
  • Slime blocks, wearable pumpkins, red sandstone, and improved chicken jockey mobs
  • Import and export maps in the Windows 10 Edition beta

Eight new achievements are now also earnable. They are as follows:

  • Camouflage – Kill a mob while wearing the same type of mob head.
  • Dispense With This – Construct a dispenser.
  • Tie Dye Outfit – Dye all 4 unique pieces of leather armor.
  • Map Room – Place 9 fully explored, adjacent maps into 9 item frames in a 3 by 3 square.
  • Trampoline Bounce – 30 blocks upward off of a slime block.
  • Freight Station – Use a Hopper to move an item from a Chest Minecart to a Chest.
  • Smelt Everything! – Connect 3 Chests to a single Furnace using 3 Hoppers.
  • Taste of Your Own Medicine – Poison a witch with a splash potion.

Are witches coming to the PC version? We’ll let you know.
