Minecraft Update 1.10 Features Polar Bears, The Husk, New Blocks and More

Minecraft Update 1.10 is already in the works and although Mojang has not shared the exact changelog of the patch, they have been sharing bits and pieces all the time about it.

So let’s have a look at exactly what they have managed to pull of so far, keeping in mind that this is certainly not a complete list.

To start off, you are going to get polar bears in the colder biomes, which are not going to be hostile when young, but they will ask for a fight when they grow up and are with their babies.

Similarly, you are going to be introduced to The Husk, which are going to act like zombies right after they spawn in hot and dry biomes. Skeleton-like Strays are also going to be introduced.

While that is all about the characters, the Update 1.10 is also bringing some new blocks including Bone Blocks, Structure Blocks, Nether Magma Blocks, Nether Warts Blocks and lastly Red Nether Bricks, followed by some other new features and bug fixes.

We have listed down all the changes and their details below, courtesy of PCGamesN. Check them out and tell us what you think.
