The Future of Minecraft Features Thinner Arms

By   /   Jul 17, 2014

After years of release, developer Mojang is finally thinking of reducing the size of Minecraft characters, in terms of pixels of course.

Current head of development of the PC version of Minecraft, Jens Bergensten posted images yesterday on Twitter, which showed a side-by-side comparison of the current character model next to the slimmer counterpart. As said, the new option will allow players to shrink their arms to three pixels, instead of four.

“Testing a possible feature for the future, an optional (via your profile) 3-pixel arm model for players,” he wrote.

Bergensten described the models as a “possible feature for the future”, and that they would be optional. There was no additional information on whether this option will be for all other characters in the game or only for the player’s alone.

Earlier this month, Minecraft hit the 16 million sales mark on the PC and Mac, with total figures across mobile, console, and PC hitting 54 million units. The game is scheduled to be released in August for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PlayStation Vita.

Last week Mojang revealed that the the maximum number of players that can take part in the multiplayer of the Xbox One version would be eight at the time of release. However, they plan to increase this in the future with the help of downloadable updates.

Also a new Cartoon themed texture pack was released for the Xbox 360 recently. Priced at $4.99, the pack contains cartoon themed makeovers that can be applied to mobs, blocks and more.
