'Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition' Adventure update weeks away

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition's next update will arrive soon, according to developer 4J Studios.

The XBLA world-building game's next update - version 1.8.2 - will add the much-anticipated 'Adventure mode'. The new mode significantly alters how the game is played, adding villages, strongholds, abandoned mineshafts, non-player characters to interact with, and a range of other enhancements to flesh out the world.

The update will also include the 'Creative mode', letting players build endlessly without needing to mine for resources.

"We're still working on 1.8.2," 4J Studios tweeted. "A few things left to add, more work on the Creative Mode interface, then lots of test. Still weeks away."

Minecraft debuted on PC in November last year following an extended beta period. An Xbox 360 port was released earlier this year, selling 1 million copies in just five days.
