Mojang Unveils Minecraft Prerelease Update 1.3.2

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Game developer Mojang unveiled a pre-release update to popular title Minecraft on Tuesday, accounting for a number of bug fixes.

Problems addressed in update 1.3.2 pertain to crash errors. A key problem corrected includes a bug that had allowed players to fall out of the Nether while another issue caused random suffocation damage.

“The update will be put live on Thursday, August 16. This pre-release is mainly intended to prepare server admins and mod makers. If you are running a server, this 1.3.2 release is compatible with 1.3.1 clients, so you can update your server when-ever,” commented Mojang via its website.

The game developer detailed the update while also discussing an alpha version of Cobalt, another one of its game titles.

Minecraft has become increasingly popular, allowing users to survive in a 3D-pixelated world by constructing shelters, harvesting resources and defending against monsters. Meanwhile, the PC version of the title recently hit the 7 million copies sold mark, according to Mojang’s Daniel Kaplan who addressed the issue on Twitter.
