By Adnan Farooqui - Wed, Jun 11, 2014

Minecraft has made its mark on consoles and mobile devices after selling 15 million copies on PC. There’s no denying its popularity and now the team behind the game is working on the “biggest update ever” for Minecraft Pocket Edition.

A beta version is available right now for people who would like to try the new features early. A full release is expected in the near future once any remaining bugs are squashed.

You can certainly take Mojang’s word for it that Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.9.0 is the game's biggest update to date. Changes include the addition of more than two dozen new blocks, updated biomes, unlimited worlds, a new culling algorithm, five additional mobs and much more. A plethora of bug fixes and tweaks are also coming.

The entire list of changes is available in the official blog post. New features also include new culling of clouds, falling mechanics for gravel and sand, and insta ticking of water and lava. Players will also find that tile entities are now saved differently.

Those playing the game on Android can get access to a beta version first to test out the laundry list of new features. To go hands on with the beta version you must first join a Google community and then sign up to receive updates.
