Jens Bergensten, Minecraft developer extraordinaire, has once again tweeted out a link to a pre-release of a new update to the popular world-building game. The 1.9 version is said to focus on The Nether, Minecraft's version of Hell.
Jens revealed earlier that the update would add "two new hostile mobs," one of which "will (nearly) force you to get better upgrades. If you want to fight it, that is."
Minecraft is a sandbox construction game created by Markus Persson and is currently in pre-release alpha. Minecraft development started around May 10, 2009.
The game involves players creating and destroying various types of blocks in a three dimensional environment. The player can form fantastic structures, creations and artwork across the various multiplayer servers in multiple game modes.
