It’s been awhile since we’ve reported on a Minecraft Earth update and today we bring you news of the new features from the 0.13.0 and 0.14.0 update.
Kicking it off we bring you new exclusive mobs for Minecraft Earth. These are mobs that aren’t in the core Minecraft game and currently only exist in the Minecraft Earth universe.
The glowing squid known internally is one of the new mobs this mob is exclusive to Minecraft Earth and is a variant of a squid, but with a glowing, luminescent texture. Glow squid mostly have the same AI behavior as squids, wander around aimlessly, swimming up and down, also breath on water.
The Skeleton (Bone) Wolf is another skeleton variant similar to the Skeleton Spider which we have seen in previous updates. This is a Wolf Variant and displays similar AI behavior to Wolfs. The Skeleton Spider is currently available in stone tappables its unclear whether the Skeleton Wolf will be the same.
The Melon Golem is a snow golem with a Melon on its head as opposed to a pumpkin they are found in Grass and Pond tappables with a uncommon rarity.
Melon golems function nearly the same as snow golems by placing snow wherever they walk and attacking hostile mobs with projectiles. In fact, there some differences between the two are that the melon golem has face animations, a different head, and melon seed projectiles instead of snowballs. Additionally, they shoot in a burst of 4 melon seed projectiles.
The Tropical Slime is the newest mob variant added. A tropical slime is a variant of a slime with a new water based texture filled with tropical fish. This mob is currently not available in the game but we should see it soon.
