Minecraft’s Halloween update looks unpleasant

PC Gamer was given an early build of the new Minecraft, which is set to go public on Sunday. It introduces biomes, the ability to fashion portals, and other crazy stuff. As for the headline, I mean that as a compliment! Hell — or, excuse me, “The Slip” — shouldn’t be a pleasant experience.

Besides the unsettling zombified pigman shown above, you’ve got to also worry about fireball-spouting ghost jellies, lava, and dangerously uneven terrain. Minecraft was already a high-stakes game depending on how you played it; this hellish realm is only going to push that tension further.

What’s more, it was revealed today that Minecraft has surpassed 500,000 sales. Yikes.
