Peasants and robbers and crossbows, oh!
By Adam Bankhurst
The largest update to Minecraft, Village & Pillage is now available and carries Pillagers and their beasts, over 10 new villagers and even Crossbow.
Available on PC, Xbox One, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch with Bedrock Edition and on a computer with Java Edition, the list of add-ons is significant and includes everything from a new wandering trader to a raid with these new Pillagers to Villager Trading bug fixes and a lot more.
Another part of the exciting news for Java Edition players is that Pandas are finally available after being available only for Bedrock Edition since last December.
This update was announced again in Minecon Earth 2018, and Mojang looked at some of the new peasants, including the librarian, the butcher, the priestly cartographer, the coachman, Fletcher and Shepard.
Minecraft, which recently joined the Xbox Game Pass, is currently the second-best selling video game of all time, with sales reaching over 154 million since its launch for the first time in 2009.
Minecraft continues to grow, especially since it was acquired by Microsoft in 2014, and has even been used to build a replica of Microsoft's new campus to present it to its employees.
