Game developer Mojang unveiled the next update for Minecraft‘s Windows 10 and Pocket Edition: the Discovery Update. The update now bumps the game to version 1.1 and focuses heavily on exploration.

In a blog post, Mojang’s Marsh Davies explained:

It’s not called The Discovery Update for no reason: there are many mysterious and wondrous things to uncover. Barter with a cartographer for a treasure map, sling your supplies into a llama’s pack (or into a shulker box) and embark on an epic quest to locate the dank and dangerous forest mansion! Does your route take you across an impassable river? The Enchantment of Frostwalking will solve that problem! Meanwhile, the Enchantment of Mending will keep your swordblade sharp no matter how many mobs you slay along the way. Defeat the sinister illagers who lurk within the mansion and make off with their precious loot – the Totem of Undying – and cheat death as you throw yourself into further peril!

The update also includes the ability to dye your bed a new color or build with new terracotta and concrete blocks. Players can also alter the movement properties of mobs. Mojang also promised to deliver more features for the Discovery Update.

Update 1.1 for Windows 10 and PE versions of Minecraft does not heavily differ from the Exploration Update that launched nearly five months ago.
