Mojang today announced a new Minecraft update that is rolling out across gaming consoles today and tomorrow. This update comes with polar bears young and old, customisable banners, beetroots and related restorative soups, new blocks, buildings and more.

You’ll be able to take shelter from the harsh weather of Arctic Biomes in new igloos, and delve beneath the earth for primordial treasures in the shape of giant fossils made of Bone Blocks.

Other new blocks include: End Bricks, Grass Path, Frosted Ice, Magma, Nether Wart Block and Red Nether Brick.

The update will be available on Xbox and Wii U consoles in the US today. It will be available in other consoles tomorrow.
