An incoming update for the Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition beta and Minecraft: Pocket Edition will bring the games’ experiences closer to the original Minecraft by adding more advanced contraptions and new enemies to Survival Mode.

The Overworld Update comes after last November’s 0.13 update, which introduced Basic Redstone to the Windows 10 and Pocket versions of the game. Overworld will expand on that addition by introducing additional Redstone components that will enable advanced mechanical contraptions. 

Other highlights of the Overworld Update include Item Frames, enemy witches, eight new achievements, and more. A full list of updates can be found on Xbox Wire

Beyond gameplay expansions, the update will grant players the ability to import and export maps into the Windows 10 Edition Beta. 

Mojang says the Overworld Update will go live by the end of this month. For more on recent updates to the Windows 10 Edition Beta of Minecraft, check out the recent Journey to the West character skin pack.
