Today, we’re announcing that the Minecraft Tumble mini game is available as part of the free Minecraft game update, rolling out to consoles now.
Tumble is a competitive mini game where your objective is to avoid taking a dip in red hot lava by making sure that other players fall into it first. You get to do this destroying the floor beneath your enemies’ feet as you stand in platforms that can have one or more layers. Sounds easy? Well, remember that other players will use their shovels or snowballs to get you to fall first. And when you get up to 8 friends to do this at the same time, it gets a little tricky. Check it out for yourself in the trailer.
Also today, we are releasing more goodies for Battle mini game with three more fun maps to play – Battle Map Pack #3 is now available in the Xbox store for £2.39 and includes three thrilling new maps: the colossal Castle, the incredible Shipyard and the terrifying Invasion!
The latest free update for Minecraft on consoles is available today for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and other consoles. All you have to do is turn on your console and update your game – nothing extra to buy – and you’ll be dropping opponents into sizzling pools of lava in minutes.
