Mojang has announced Minecraft 2.0, and it'll have unicorns and rainbows, and less of those blocky graphics that gamers seem to hate.
According to the blog post, "Minecraft PC edition is about to hit 10,000,000 sales. I don’t know about you guys, but we’re really excited about this major milestone in Minecraft history. We decided that this would be the perfect time to announce our next upcoming title, “Minecraft 2″.
Hopefully releasing within the next two months, this 2-years-in-development game will be bringing blocky simulation games to the next level. Whilst based off the original Minecraft engine, this new version completely overhauls major parts of the game and contains many weeks worth of new content and blocks. Currently in closed beta stage, we have secretly been working with a select few members of the community to participate and trial run some specific features from the new version. Neither Mojang nor Minecraft would be where it is today without its community, so we felt it fitting that we let them make the trailer videos and announcements for us, which are visible below."
Mojang also posted some sneak peak videos - enjoy!
What's cool is that for this April Fool's gag, Mojang actually used fan videos instead of inventing its own. Way to honor the community, Mojang.
