Minecraft PS4 Update 1.50: Adventure Time Mashup, New Skins, Free Glide Stage and more!

Starting up my PS4 so that we can begin watching our Netflix series tonight (yes, we use our gaming console to watch series and movies), I spotted a message that Minecraft was being updated to version 1.50. Since these notifications never really tell us what the update includes, unless you actually go into the game, I decided to do some research to see what we are in store for.

First off, there's a new mashup pack for Adventure Time {AT}. This includes new skins, with blocks being altered to match the world of AT, and of course a ready-built world set in the universe of AT. There are also new skins for Magic: The Gathering Skin Pack, which excites me more than the AT mashup since I have four years of Magic card sets and the online 2015 game for the Xbox 360.

While there are brand new blocks to play with, the upgrade I am the most satisfied with is the ability to have off-hand items. Until now, we have only been able to use the right hand to build, destroy and kill. Now the left hand can be used to hold the map and arrows. I didn't even know how badly I wanted this until they made it available today!

Here is a video put together by Youtuber CALLUMKILL555 showing the new blocks and items, followed by all the upgrade features.
