Minecraft Xbox 360 update 1.8.2 out today, 10am GMT

4J calls on fans to "knock Modern Warfare 3 off the top of Xbox Live"

Morning all. Apologies for the shortage of news updates yesterday, which was occasioned by the regrettable fact of my needing a holiday, but hopefully, the following should make up for it. 4J Studios has announced that Minecraft Xbox 360 update 1.8.2 will be with us in a matter of hours - 10am GMT or 2am PDT.

According to 4J "it can take a few hours to be available everywhere", so don't go burning your house down if the clock hits one minute past and you're still un-updated.

"Get EVERYONE you know playing 1.8.2 this week!" the studio ordered fans. "Let's see if we can knock Modern Warfare 3 off the top spot in the LIVE activity chart!" Here's the launch trailer.

Here's the full Minecraft Xbox 360 update 1.8.2 changelog plus an ultimate guide to all the features. Here are some Minecraft Xbox 360 post-update Survival Mode tips, and pointers as to whether you'll need to start a new world to enjoy the new terrain types and structures.

See you in Creative Mode, my fellow godlings. What are you planning to construct or do first?
