The upcoming update for everyone’s favourite indie game, Minecraft, will feature weather effects, stats and achievements. A video has been released showing off some of these features.
Game creator Marcus Persson explains “there’s periodic downfall (snow in snowy areas, rain in others, nothing in deserts) that make the sky darker, hides the sun, moon and stars, and makes everything wet. Ice grows back in cold regions, and snowfall covers the ground when it’s snowing. During rain/snow, there can be occasional thunderstorms with lightning.”
The update is set to launch sometime this week.
