The skies of Minecraft are about to become
more blocky/dangerous, as creator Markus 'Notch' Persson has teased the arrival
of dragons to the build-your-own-world adventure.
Earlier today, Notch answered a fan's
request for more Minecraft info with a cryptic hinting he was: “developing epicness for minecraft!” Pressed for
more information, Notch later posted screenshots of the majestic beast in
action, which you can see in the gallery below
Minecraft has already been visited by
dragons, dinosaurs, and other awe-inspiring creatures thanks to game mods and
creative player creation. Still, consider this the 'official' version.
Notch did not say when dragons will appear
in the game, only that he'll be working on it through the weekend. Considering
Notch's company Mojang is currently in a with Bethesda's parent company Zenimax over the use of
the title “Scrolls” for the indie studio's next game – a title Zenimax's
lawyers claim may confuse potential Elder Scrolls IV: Skyrim consumers - he may
want to keep this whole 'dragon' thing hush-hush.
