Minecraft gets a release date and some weather
Yesterday saw 2 announcements from Notch (Markus Persson aka creator of Minecraft).
The first one was via his personal website World of Notch where he has revealed the release date for Minecraft (that’s right the multi award winning and million + selling game isn’t even officially out yet). Notch announced that the release date would be November 11 2011 or 11.11.11 (good luck to Mojang because that’s the same day Skyrim comes out).
The second bit of news is that in the newest update 1.5 we will see weather effects which was announced via Notch’s twitter account.
Adding rain and snow to 1.5.
To sweeten it Notch showed of a picture of it
He added some details on what the weather will do for example: wolves will get wet, crops will get watered and lava/torches will not be effected.
