Minecraft’s Xbox 360 1.8.2 update is live today

By Updated on

Today will be a day where a lot of Microsoft gamers will go sick and skip school or work, which will be thanks to Minecraft’s Xbox 360 1.8.2 update finally being available to download. We don’t currently have a release time for everyone, feel free to work it out from previous updates considering it will rollout gradually, but you can see the official Minecraft 1.8.2 update trailer for the Xbox 360 Edition in the video on this page, which only went live a few hours ago.

We’ve been tracking the progress of this major update to Minecraft, and knew that the 2-week certification window with Microsoft had come to a close today, which is conveniently the release date for v1.8.2 as well. We noted gamer impatience a few days ago and this revealed that some Xbox 360 gamers had been waiting many weeks for this download, so frustration is understandable.

Gamers were treated with a nice collection of pictures yesterday, which showcased the Minecraft characters in the upcoming Skin Pack 3 that’s due to launch this Friday. This might have entertained you a little until the release of Minecraft’s 1.8.2 update on Xbox 360, but obviously most of you wanted the new modes more than anything else.

Did you make it into work or school today, knowing that the Minecraft Xbox update is due? We’ve seen some really funny comments from PR readers, and on other blogs, which shows that a number of people are strangely starting to feel unwell – does this sound like you? Take a look at the official trailer below, and share with your fellow gamers how you’re preparing for the 1.8.2 update.

When will the release time be for Minecraft’s Xbox 360 1.8.2 update? We have heard that the download should go live around 2am Pacific Time, which is in around 3 hours time (while we’re writing this), although please note that it will take a number of hours after this for the download to rollout across the US, UK, and other regions. Hit the comments if the Minecraft update is live on your Xbox 360, and let us know where you are in the world.

    ‘The 1.8.2 update will start rolling out at 2am PDT (10am in the UK) on 16th October. It can take a few hours to be available everywhere.’ 4j Studios.

  • joe

    4:00am here in NC… nothing yet…

  • TheGuyWhoCanWait

    10:30 PM in HI, nada. :(

  • TheGuyWhoCanWait

    Think about it. It comes out at 2:00 am PDt so we only have 23 minutes left.

    • Senna4ever

      It’ll take time for it to roll out to everyone. So not 23 mins everywhere.

      • TheGuyWhoCanWait

        Cant I just have my moment of moment of happiness.

        • Senna4ever

          Of course you can.
          We are all waiting, I’m just being realistic. It could still take a few hours, or you could have the update in less than 10 mins.

    • dasdasddadad

      Still not out… you we’re wrong and gave my hopes up. *slits wrists*

  • Jeffrey

    How will the update be delivered? Through the games menu or…

    • Senna4ever

      Most updates are auto when you load up the game.
      If you play now it’ll probably sign you out of live when the update is available so you’ll know right away.

      • Jeffrey

        Thanks! Might as well start it up now. :)

        • Senna4ever

          While it goes live in a few mins (13). It’ll take a while for it to roll out around the world. So it may update dead on the hour, or it could take a few hours.

  • MSXbox

    UK … out in the UK

    • denbi

          It is. Im playing it at the moment. It comes out at different times in different places.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jamie.hutton.96 Jamie Hutton

          i dont know if anyone else had this problem, but my friend who lives with me downloaded the update but i didnt get it an to get it i had to get rid of the last update, so either delete the game an re download then you will get the update or simply load up[ about 2 other games an update them an then go back to minecraft an it should work. thats what i had to do….

    • Senna4ever

      Is it?
      I’m in the UK, loaded up MC, no update yet.

      • Senna4ever

        I got it too, but sprint does not seem to work.
        Checked the control options and it is the left stick. But if I press it it just changes camera, and if I hold it it just changes camera.

        Try it yourself see if it’s just my game of if sprint does not work.

        Edit: Nevermind I worked it out. You don’t press the stick. You tap forward twice to sprint. It does work.

        • denbi

          not able to get on it to play as yet ….but will let you know when i do
