Minecraft 1.2 updateMojang has today announced that the 1.2 update for Minecraft has gone live. The update brings a whole host of new features, including zombies with new AI, ocelots that turn in to cats when trained and iron golems who will protect the villagers.

Here is a list of some of the new features (courtesy of Mojang) of 1.2, which is now 1.2.2 due to birches and pine trees being added.

  • New jungle biome
  • Added ocelots
  • Added cats
  • Added iron golems
  • New AI for mobs
  • Tame wolves can have puppies
  • Villagers will have children if there is room in their village
  • New map height limit (256 instead of 128)
  • New items and blocks
  • Doors have been updated so that double-doors work better with redstone
  • Added rare drops for mobs
  • Many other minor tweaks and fixes

Check out the trailer for Minecraft 1.2 below. It’s pretty funny and shows off the new features to great effect.We also threw in the “making of” video for good measure. Oh, and you can also download the map from the trailer here.

The update is out now, get it by updating the game in the Minecraft launcher.

Thanks, Mojang.
