I don't know about you guys, but I've been ready for a change in Minecraft for a long, long time. So, it is with great pleasure that I reveal to you the next iteration of Minecraft, courtesy of Mojang: MINECRAFT 2.0!!! What does this new version include? Let's take a look at the details, courtesy of Dinnerbone, from Mojang!

Gameplay

  • Added new Super Hostile game mode, for a much more challenging Survival experience.
  • Difficulty setting is now per-world and may never be changed once set.
  • Added new graphics setting “Ultra Realistic” with new patent-pending experimental 4D-rendering.
  • Added new chase-style 3D camera perspective.

    Animals

  • Added new realistic food/hunger system to animals.
  • Overfeeding animals may have a negative effect on gameplay.
  • Added a new “Horse” animal, with two different breeds to choose from.
  • Each animal now has a gender and personality, introducing new farming mechanics.
  • Added a new rare breed of chicken known as a “Diamond Chicken”.
  • May lay diamonds or lapis instead of laying eggs.
  • May also blow up from too much pressure. Handle with care.
  • Added new friendly Pink Wither, which is the complete opposite of a wither.
  • Shoots out Love, which heals the nearby land and causes things to grow faster.
  • Known bug: Having both a Pink Wither and a Wither in your world at the same time may
  • cause up to a 200% increase in framerate. Will be fixed for launch.
  • All animals may be fed Golden Apples to unleash their hidden magical properties (see new Magic section).
  • Chickens are now classified as a Monster and are no longer a friendly Animal.

    Monsters

  • Chickens do not appreciate being looked at and may get upset.
  • Attacking a lone chicken may summon additional chickens to its defense.
  • Zombie Pigmen now spawn with battlesigns and no longer use swords.
  • Fixed a bug causing Skeletons to miss their targets on occasion.
  • Added new Redstone Bug monster (see Redstone section).

Changes to Minecraft Forum

In addition to changes to Minecraft, we here at Minecraft Forum are very excited to announce some really sweet changes to the forum itself!

  • The front page news will now be featuring only Minecraft 2.0 videos, maps, and mods
  • The front page will also be used to show off many other games besides Minecraft, which is now old by internet standards
  • Due to low usage, the following sections will be deleted from the forum on April 14th:
    • Off-Topic
    • Servers
    • Mods
    • Minecraft Discussion
    • Contact Forum Administration
    • Videos
  • A new forum section, "Minecraft 2.0" will be added, and will be the only unlocked section of the forum. Every other section not deleted will be locked and archived.
  • All rule infractions will now result in an email being sent to the users' parents. The staff felt that suspensions and bans were not effective, and that this new measure will be far more proactive in establishing a friendly environment for everyone.
  • I will be retiring from MCF to pursue my lifelong dream of being a mime.
  • Any user caught typing the word "bacon" will have their avatar changed to a pretty princess, and their user name changed to match.
  • Private messaging and Search will be disabled on April 14th due to low usage.
  • The only videos on the front page that do not feature Minecraft 2.0 will be Curse videos, such as this fine review:

We know these exciting new changes will make life better for everyone here on the official Minecraft Forum! Since we will no longer have a "Contact Forum Administration" section, feel free to leave any and all suggestions you have for the new and improved Minecraft Forum in the comments below!

Why, it'll be Minecraft, but so much better!

Also, you're a day late. :P

Actually a few things such as the glass wouldn't be so bad, could be fun creating stuff with it. Even the coal block would be pretty cool, but again, just for building. Hell even the exploding mobs would be interesting, except with less food.

I do not like this, because this does not feel like the original Minecraft.

What do you want to bet someone's already working on a mod that makes this a reality?

Why bother? You can download it from Mojang's site.

I can't seem to find a reliable link, but I'm not surprised. I should have watched the videos before I left a comment, but I realize that at least some of this stuff had to exist in order to make the videos...

It's actually kind of sad. I really think that Minecraft needs a serious update and overhaul. The gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. Once you've built a few good things and gone to the ender there's no point to keep playing.

There's this thing called mods. Believe me, they increase the game to infinity and beyond. Really, Minecraft is one of those games that a major overhaul would ruin.

Can't wait for the update. Just will be a hassle with waiting for the servers from the hosting companies to update to the latest patch and for the server mods to update, especially for my server. Overall am impressed (thumbs up) xD

Super hostile, even if this is just for April Fools, needs to be instated as an in-game mode!
