Is the island mode available in all modes or just multi? It does seem interesting for creative/adventure builds as well. So long was the boat doesn't fail us too quickly. I'm more geeked about the crazy mountains and rivers. Watching his video, I couldn't help but pick out spots I'd like to build in. (I used to love the deep crevices in MC.)
One huge thing I'm wondering about is if we can use different characters in a 'single player', turn based world, like I'm involved in now... Neither I nor the other players can get the update yet. I buy from Amazon and they're on iOS. Ugh.
Island mode is available for single or multi player, Creative, Challenging, etc etc.
Yes the crazy terrain and rivers are great. Thank goodness we can control it though - starting out on an island of mountains is just too crazy. And encountering a river off the bat reminds me of that saying, "careful what you wish for...".
Amazon is out now. But I know you know that! :)
