Minecraft's New Aquatic Update Is an Ocean Overhaul

This certainly isn't going to trigger a crisis for Minecraft players, but it does suggest that the graphics pack and Switch update were more than a little ambitious.

Last week, Minecraft fans too part in MineCon and learned a lot of exciting new information about what's coming to the game.

The Aquatic Update will see dolphins arrive in the oceans.

The update will also add new physics involving the tricky behavior of water, like buoyancy.

DJ Khaled won favorite rap/hip-hop song for "I'm the One", his No. 1 hit featuring Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne. Her mother, Diana Ross , is the night's Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

In a press release that collected all the announcements at MineCon Earth 2017, Mojang described The Update Aquatic as the biggest update ever for the oceans of Minecraft.

The dolphins will guide players to treasure, which are hidden in new structures that include shipwrecks and icebergs.

Players will be able to explore shipwrecks and coral, as well as interacting with new types of fish.

The Nintendo Switch community will still be getting the new version of Minecraft with cross-platform multiplayer, but not until 2018. With this update, the game will refine water and underwater-based adventures. The SuperDuper Graphics pack is expected to feature refinements for the visuals of the entire "Minecraft" universe, and though there is no release date as of yet, fans are expecting it spring next year. Neither Mojang nor Microsoft cited any reasons for the delay, but the most probable cause could be that the graphics update, as well as the cross-platform Switch multiplayer, may be ambitious. The first release of Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch was an upgraded version of the title for the Nintendo Wii U.
