A new update has hit Minecraft and within this update players will be able to enjoy the sharpness of the brand new crossbow. They will also be able to construct and decorate their homes with the new lanterns. The update will also be bringing Pillagers will that ransack players' homes, but do not fret as these pillagers are currently only coming to Creative Mode within this update.

Some details have been released onto the official Minecraft website, some of the details address that there is currently a "bug that currently affects HD texture packs on mobile devices. Using these texture packs may cause your game to crash. Until we get this bug fixed, we advise you to not use HD texture packs on mobile devices."
