Minecraft creator Markus ”Notch” Persson announced today that the latest update for audience favourite Minecraft is in effect. Word of Notch says the new wolves will work as tameable mods, which will then be useable as pets.
Not only that, but sleeping in your bed now resets your spawn point; spiders won’t trample your crops; holding shifts lets you hold onto ladders; and also you can craft cookies. Mmmm. Cookies…. The framework for achievements and stats are also added, but the full feature won’t be seen in Minecraft until later updates.
For a video of the cute little wolves, check after the cut. Full list of updates can be found here.
“Jens spent most of the week working on a new mob; the wolf! You can tame it and order it to follow you around, and it’ll work as a pet. They’re fairly rare, but they won’t despawn once you’ve tamed them,” said Notch on his blog. And no, that Jens obviously isn’t me.
