We have some fantastic news for those of you playing Minecraft on the Xbox 360, as developers 4J Studios are finally ready to release the highly anticipated Title Update 9 for the game. More importantly, it will finally give Xbox 360 players the chance to explore the new ‘The End’ content, and ultimately – allow players to do battle with the nefarious Ender Dragon.
As most of you are well aware, most of the content with Title Update 9 is already available on the PC version of Minecraft and Xbox 360 players have been trying to play catch up ever since. The release of frequent Skin Packs has helped to ease the situation somewhat, but all should be forgiven when The End finally releases.
We can tell you that you don’t have long to wait indeed, as Title Update 9 will be going live this weekend on April 5, along with another vast amount of bug fixes and enhancements that should keep you busy until the next major update arrives. The End will provide players with a challenge of having to gather materials for them to enter The End portal.
Once the requirements have been met, you’ll be transported into the End realm and be able to take on the Ender Dragon, which you’ll see an image of above. Not only will you have to take on this fearsome beast, but you’ll also have to deal with a barrage of attacks from the Endermen as well at the same time.
If you’re victorious, you’ll pocket a cool 12,000 experience points and be able to claim the Dragon Egg block, which will serve as a lovely trophy for your collection. For those that are also interested in seeing what bug fixes Title Update 9 will bring, you can view the patch notes in full over at OXM.
This weekend is now set to be a very exciting one indeed for those that have been waiting to take on the Ender Dragon for months. Let us know your strategies and plan of attack below.
