For weeks, Minecraft players on Xbox 360 have been teased with the incoming Title Update 9. Finally, it has a release date and it's not as long as you'd think. Developer 4J Studios has told fans the update will arrive this week on April 5.
The most notable feature in Update 9 is "The End," an alternate dimension that plays home to a vast number of Endermen and the lone Ender Dragon boss. There will, however, be differences between the Xbox 360 and PC versions of The End. Other additions include climbable vines, beach terrain, new textures, and a ton of fixes.
