Mojang, the swedish game developer owned by Microsoft is giving away more free content for Minecraft users. The company announced today that the console versions of its hugely popular game are getting a new mini-game called Tumble for no price at all. This is something most users will take in the affirmative.
The new minigame, called Tumble, will be available as part of a free update for the game on most of the leading consoles out in the market. These include the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U etc.
According to the Redmond giant, the new minigame is loads of fun. The objective of the game is to run around on dangerous grounds trying to avoid falling into red hot lava(yet again!!). At the same time, you have to try to make your enemies take a bath in the burning earth by destroying their ground. This floor can have multiple layers, too.
And you know what, we’re just getting started. The game can be played by eight players at the same time and players will be equipped with snowballs and shovels that can help them dip their opponents first.
Tumble is a frantic competitive minigame where your objective is to avoid taking a dip in red hot lava by making sure that other players fall into it first,
the blog post announcing the minigame reads.
You get to do this by destroying the floor beneath your enemies’ feet as you stand in platforms that can have one or more layers. Sound easy? Well, remember that other players will use their shovels or snowballs to get you to fall first. And when you get up to eight friends to do this at the same time, it does get a little wild.
The game sounds quite exciting and has already seen a lot of positive outlook.
While Minecraft mainly focuses on exploration, survival and other such related topics, these sorts of minigames surely give users a more defined and open experience. If you’re a regular Minecraft user, you’ll know that this isn’t the first competitive minigame on the platform. Previously in June we saw the developers launch the Battle that allowed users to take part in traditional death matches.
