Just a few days after Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition received its 1.8.2 update, Minecraft PC sees the pre-release of 1.4, also known as the "Pretty Scary Update."
The official public release won't be until next Wednesday, October 24, but an early build is now available from the official site. Modders and server admins can prepare themselves in advance. Ready your loins.
With the Pretty Scary Update comes a number of additions and, of course, changes, like a Wither Boss, Witch creature, direct access to server mods, anvils for repairing and combining weapons, flower pots, mob spawners, and more.
Some bugs have also been fixed today, along with new sound effects for the Witcher, bats, the anvil, and the Ender Dragon.
