Heads up Minecraft fans, Microsoft and Mojang have announced a new update for the console versions of Minecraft that will be rolling out tonight. The update has already hit PlayStation and Xbox gamers, so be on the lookout if you’re a big Minecraft player.

Mojang says this is a precursor to the Better Together update and here’s what you can expect after it lands:

  • 7 new Achievements/Trophies
  • New UI engine (saving significant memory – which should boost performance!)
  • Llamas
  • Parrots
  • Woodland Mansion
  • Treasure Maps
  • Observer Block
  • Totem of Undying
  • Illagers! Vindicator, Vex and Evoker!
  • ‘Bouncy’ Beds
  • Dyeable beds
  • Option to change Biomes size to match other platforms (since they are smaller on console by default)
