Flying in survival Minecraft may sound like something out of a mod, but snapshot 15w41a introduced a new item that may do just that: the Elytra. This item, a set of wings like a bug’s (Elytra are the fore wings of beetles), allows player to glide through the world, opening up all new possibilities for Minecraft players.
In the upcoming 1.8 update, Mojang will be introducing the new Ocean Monuments. Highly requested, the monuments will make ocean exploring a lot more interesting. They will be the only place to find some of the new content 1.8 has to offer, so make sure you are ready to face the endless blueness of the Minecraft oceans to find the rare Ocean Monuments!
Like every Minecraft update, anticipation has been growing, hopes have been raised and tempers tested as we look forward to what 1.8 will bring us in May. Let’s take a look at what exactly we can expect and how it can affect EMC.
