As the release of Minecraft 1.13 draws ever closer, rumors about Minecraft 1.14 are of course inevitable. Yesterday on Twitter , Dinnerbone happily teased a major one himself:
For some reason it was cut out of the @MineVention panel video so here’s me re-encacting it:
Q: “What’s coming in the next update?”
A: “I can’t tell you the theme but unrelated to that it’ll have lots and lots of new slabs/stairs/etc. We don’t have nearly enough.
I’m sure I’m not the only one dancing around in happiness at the potential explosion in building materials. The lack of stair and slab variants in the game has almost become its own (stale) meme at this point, so it’s great to hear this will be addressed in the next iteration of the game.
Personally, I am holding out for the theme of 1.14 being The Builders Update. With the block ID limit removed as part of the 1.13 release there’s no reason to really expand the game’s building materials; sensibly of course – no – we don’t need fire stairs or water fences.
Oh, I’ll throw out a suggestion for the 1.14 release name as well. How about: The Blockalypse
