Mojang is bringing some much-requested features to the mobile and Windows 10 versions of  Minecraft. The friendly update will allow players to make even more complex mechanisms.

Pistons and sticky pistons shook up players' creations when they were added to the original game, and this new update aims to do the same for another platform. Update 1.5 has been dubbed the friendly update, for some currently unknown reason, Mojang teases. The complex mechanisms are the updates biggest draws, but other features like pig riding and horse armor will be included.Get a look at some of the features in action with the brief overview trailer seen below.

In addition to the inventory and environmental updates, the game will be getting a number of technical fixes. A new UI is rolling out for the main menu and a number of came-crashing bugs are being removed. Online play is expected to run smoother once the update goes like as well.

An open beta for the new update is now live for Android players. The iOS and Windows 10 players will have to wait a bit longer for it.
