Microsoft today announced a major update coming to Minecraft on Windows 10. The company is calling it the Boss Update, which will introduce boss battles on both Windows 10 devices and the Pocket Edition for Windows Phone devices. The update will introduce Ocean Monuments, Elder Guardian, and Wither. Microsoft states:
Survival players are in for a real treat with the Boss Update. Ocean Monuments will be discoverable, and you can enjoy adventuring in these new, rare locations with friends beneath the sea. Get ready to fight through the Elder Guardian boss and its squad of Guardian sea creatures with laser beams attached to their heads, conquer underwater enclaves and loot their treasures. We’re also introducing the Wither boss battle to Minecraft on mobile and Windows 10 with the Boss Update. The Wither boss is a powerful, floating, three-headed mob who is clearly up to no good. You can summon and defeat this mob in order to claim the ultra-rare nether star item that it drops.
According to Microsoft, the Boss Update will be available for Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition this Fall. The update will also be coming to Pocket Edition and the Gear VR Edition.
