Battle Mini Game Coming to Minecraft on Consoles in June

This morning we got a little note in our inbox here at XBA.  It seems that Team Minecraft at Mojang, 4J Studios, and Microsoft wanted to share some news about some content coming for “Minecraft: Console Edition”, as they are going to be releasing mini games via a free update this June.

With the new mini games, Mojang, 4J Studios and Microsoft are going to be helping you quickly and easily jump into competitions with tailor-made rulesets, so you can have fun straight away without having to fuss around with manual count-downs, laboriously prep loot chests or keep score.

The first mini game they will be rolling out is called Battle, which will include three maps, and will allow you to set up a competitive multiplayer fight for survival, where speed, strategy, and sometimes pure luck will make you the winner.  Players in Battle matches use randomly-generated resources found in chests placed in specially-designed PVP maps and combat one another in a free-for-all death match until the final victor is determined. The fun isn’t over after you are defeated though, as fallen players can spectate the match by flying freely around each arena as a bat.

Battle matches can be played with up to four players in split-screen and up to eight players online via Xbox Live. You can also find other community members to join your game via an in-game matchmaking system.
