Horses coming to Minecraft, new launcher needed on July 1

No longer will you be restricted to riding pigs in Minecraft, with update 1.6 coming soon and bringing the addition of ridable horses — and mounted combat!

1.6 also contains a bunch of other new features, including donkeys, mules, horse armour, leads, carpets, hardened clay, stained clay, blocks of coal, name tags for items, and hay bales.

One of the biggest updates is the change of texture packs into ‘resource packs’, which will allow players to mod the game much more easily and comprehensively. Resource packs can hold sounds, scripts, and more.

With a such a big change, a whole new launcher is being released — so you won’t just be able to patch it up. You’ll be able to grab that from the official site when it launches on Monday July 1.

Sweet, now the mods I installed well over a year ago are being added into the game!
