Title Update 16 for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is now available for download, bringing numerous fixes to various known issues with the Xbox 360 version of the popular building game. Developer 4J Studios announced the release of the title’s latest update on May 19 along with the release of the complete change log that accompanies the patch.

Rather than adding new content to the game like most even-numbered updates before it, TU16 instead focuses entirely on removing bugs from Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. Traditionally, 4J Studios first publicly announces that they have submitted an update for certification but Title Update 16 must have gone through Microsoft’s process to allow content on Xbox Live rather speedily as the newest Minecraft patch on Xbox 360 is now fully ready for download.

Many of the issues which were addressed in Title Update 16 involve various bugs which cause players’ characters to disappear. Fans’ in-game avatars should no longer accidently become invisible after death or when two players teleport at the same time. These issues were introduced after a recent update for the game first added the optional ability for players to toggle on invisibility.

The latest update also fixed problem that gamers may have encountered while attempting to either tame or breed ocelots. Instances where previously tamed wolves would be removed from the game if no players were nearby should also be corrected with TU16.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is out now as a digital download from Xbox Live Arcade. The game is also available in stores thanks to a physical retail disc release which launched last summer. 4J Studios is now working to bring the game to the new console generation as version of Minecraft are expected to release later this year on Xbox One and PS4. Additionally, a handheld edition of the game is also in development for Sony's PS Vita.
