Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Update 7 is almost amongst us and a few more details of its contents have been revealed.

Set to arrive before Christmas, the pack adds animal breeding, brewing, XP, new biomes, Nether fortresses, new skin animations and more.

You can get the full list over at PlayXBLA, but some selected highlights can be found at the bottom of the post.

Before you scroll on down to that though, you may be interested to hear that Minecraft: The Story of Mojang is set for its world premiere on Xbox Live on December 22nd.

2 Player Productions have a fine pedigree, working on a number of game-related documentaries including Reformat the Planet (a chiptune scene doc), the Double FIne documentary series and the first season of Penny Arcade TV (before it got a bit crap).

You can watch an extended trailer for the documentary below.

Minecraft Title Update 7 Details

Animal Breeding – feed two of the same animals a particular food and they’ll “kiss” and like magic a little baby animal will appear. Cute!

Brewing – You’ll be able to make Potions! Pull up a Brewing Stand and experiment.

Experience Points – Now you can collect Experience Orbs from mining, killing mobs, breeding and using Furnaces. Experience is used for Enchanting!

Enchanting– A new process which uses your Experience points to grant special abilities to armour, tools and weapons. You’ll need to craft yourself an Enchantment table to get started.

Mushroom Biome – A new type of land where the humble mushroom is king. New block Mycelium can be found here and Mooshrooms! Try growing yourself a giant mushroom.

Nether Fortresses – a structure that can appear in the Nether, bringing new blocks to the game too. Nether Fortresses are the Nether equivalent of Strongholds. Look out for the Blaze which can found in these new structures, they’ve got a habit of shooting out fire.

Skin animations – Some of your skins will have new animations (optional) to give them a bit more life and personality of their own. It’s something new and something that will be expanded upon as we do future updates, even older skins might get given their own animations as time goes on, so keep a look out for them in the future too. You may also notice that skins can have hats, and stuff…

The list missed an item, it missed the enchanting table, that should be under new items.

THink I'll be making a new video detailing each of the items in more detail then my last update. ^-^

Can't wait for this, though really need to finish off this series before this update comes by.

I got sick of this game on Xbox, there is only so much you can do. The lack of community map/adventure sharing (without going through a bunch or annoying steps) makes the game feel pointless compared to the PC version. GREAT game, I just wish there was community sharing.
