Mojang is at it again with a new boss for Minecraft that really wants to scare the bejeebies out of you.
It has been a while since the folks over at Mojang added the Endermen and the Ender Dragon to give Minecraft players nightmares. Well, it has just been too quiet in the blocky little world, so get ready for the Wither Boss.
While not officially announced yet, the skin for this new monster was discovered in the 12w34a snapshot released this week, and players have found a way to activate him. When he spots a player or a passive mob, he will fire Wither Skulls that will not only damage you, but poison you with the Wither effect, turning your health bar black. If that isn't bad enough, he can also "eat" blocks, and can chew a 3×3 hole in the side of your house to let himself in. How rude.
Oh, and he has 300 hit points, so you aren't killing him with just a few swings of your sword.
Some of the other items currently showing up in the snapshots for 1.4:
- Flower pots
- Corner stairs (FINALLY!)
- Cobblestone and Mossy Cobblestone walls
- Trapdoors placed on top half of blocks
- Potions of invisibility
- Wooden buttons
- Dyeable armor
- Dyeable dog collars
- Improved maps that can now be cloned and shared
It sounds like Minecraft 1.4 is going to be full of new enhancements … and a boss that will make you run screaming in terror.
No word as of yet when the full version of 1.4 will be released.
