Minecraft and Minecraft VR introduce soft modding through text files


We recently posted about Minecraft becoming the first Gear VR title to gain access to Microsoft’s new XBOX One S Bluetooth-enabled controller. While it seems like this update was just announced itself, Microsoft has just announced yet another update that could yet again change the way you play. Through a new patch coming later next month, users will have the ability to modify various aspects of the game by tweaking individual text files.

Mods are one of the most popular aspects of Minecraft as a title, enabling users to take the originally low quality block-like assets and transform them into beautiful works of art. While Microsoft has only mentioned changing specific values like the size of objects, it is still not known if there will be official support for texture mods among other things.

While built in modding of the title sounds extremely enticing, the new update brings the game to a new level. Users who play on Mobile, Gear VR, and Windows 10 will now have boss battles implemented directly into the game. This means you will be able to take advantage of the new RPG style while also using these small modification features, giving users access to a whole new style of gaming.

If you’re running the game on a console, there is an update coming October 4th and 5th which should get you excited as well. In an update the company is calling Minecraft: Chinese Mythology, users will be able to experience brand new worlds with all new assets inspired by Chinese culture.

The Mobile, Gear VR, and Windows 10 updates will be pushed to devices October 18th, so get excited.

Which are you more interested in? Asset editing and boss battles sound pretty enticing, but the new Chinese Mythology pack looks really great as well.

Let us know in the comments.
