[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here have been several speculations that the next update for Minecraft Xbox 360, TU12 is going to come out after the Skin Pack 5 release.
Minecraft Xbox 360 Next Title Update 12 Release Date
4J Studios has confirmed several months ago that Title Update 11 is just a huge bug fix update.
So it would take a lot of time before the developer handed TU12 update patch to Microsoft for Test Certification.
Considering the process it will go through which would take more than a week, we might not be able to download TU12 on Xbox LIVE after the Skin Pack 5 release.
It’s not a secret for everyone that there are piles of work for 4J Studios to complete due to the nature of it not being a direct port from the original version, but actually rewriting it again in another programming language for Xbox 360.
In other words, to have sheep regrow their wool in game for example is not an easy task. There are a lot of materials to link up to in terms of code.
Add the fact that they are not being paid for releasing those updates (which at this rate would take another several years to complete), 4J Studios actually doing a great job in providing the Minecraft experience on console.
Let’s just hope that Mojang give each of them a big check for what they have done in the past few months, especially for 4JSteve, our wonderful QA bug tester and quite popular too with the Minecraft Xbox 360 community.
Some of the features expected for Title Update 12:
The trading system is a gameplay mechanic that allows players to trade emeralds for items (and vice-versa) with NPC villagers.
Ocelots are passive mobs that spawn in jungle biomes.
They are the second tameable mob to be introduced into Minecraft, the first being Wolves. They are based on the animal with same name. When tamed, they become cats, and will change skins.
Cats will follow the Player and will teleport if they are too far away.
Iron Golems are large, strong utility mobs.
Their main purpose is to defend Villagers in NPC Villages from hostile mobs and siege attacks.
They will try to protect villagers from getting killed.
For TU12 release date, well, what do you think?
