This is more of a roundup post than anything else, but it shows just how bad Notch, Minecraft’s creator, is at keeping close to his own NDAs. Whenever a new version of Minecraft is in development, he’d release little snippets of screenshots and text about that particular release. Him and his team already spilled out that Minecraft beta 1.7 will contain a new mob, pistons, a new block, shears (can be used on TNT and sheep), Adventure mode, new lighting system, improved performance, and now underground ravines, which as seen above (click to embiggen), looks absolutely fantastic.
And the wait for Minecraft Beta 1.7 continues. Via: PCGamer
