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.
