    Title update 9 will add a ton of new content as well as fixes that will add “The End” to the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft as well as a new Enderdragon behavior. In addition to that, you can expect to be treated to climbable vines, stackable buckets and signs, sheep being able to regrow their wool and a ton of other improvements to the game you could check out for yourself in after the break.
