Minecraft console editions get free Pilotwings-style mini-game

Winging it.

Minecraft's various console versions are getting Glide, a new free mini-game.

As with other mini-game additions, Glide itself comes free and in the future will be expanded via both free and paid map packs.

Glide centres on the newly-released Elytra item - a set of wings which allow you to glide through the air. In Minecraft's survival mode, Elytra are rare - so Glide is a good place to try them out.

Footage of the mode shows Pilotwings-style aerial rings to soar through, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild-style updrafts from fire to keep you afloat. There are maps themed around monsters, and set in various biomes.

Glide gets added to Minecraft's various console versions from tomorrow, 28th March.
