Minecraft Update 1.8.2 for Xbox 360 download time rollout
Today will see the much-anticipated Minecraft 1.8.2 title update for the Xbox 360 go live, and although we have no specific download time for you, we do know that the update will go live from 2am PDT (10am GMT) with there being a slow rollout taking anywhere from a few hours after this initial time, so just try to be patient – easier said than done I bet.
The PC version of Minecraft never saw this update as it went from 1.8.1 direct to 1.9, but let’s not underestimate what this new update brings because not only is there a host of new features, but also a number of fixes as well. It’s for this very reason why Xbox 360 owners with Minecraft will want to be in front of their consoles today to keep checking if they can start to download the update – let’s hope they don’t try to use a recent sickness bug hitting the UK as an excuse.
It’s easy to understand why some gamers would want to take time off work or school, as they have been waiting months for this update. We’re not certain if PC users ever had to wait so long, but let’s not lose site of what 4J studios has done here because some of these new features must’ve taken them a long time to get right, hence the long wait.
Although 1.8.2 is not right up-to-date, but with Creative Mode becoming available at least it brings it much closer to the PC edition, which you can clearly see in the trailer below. A complete list of new features, option changes and fixes can be seen here and it’s clear to see just how big of a task this latest update was for the developer.
We’re hearing reports that people have already tried to start downloading the Minecraft Xbox 360 1.8.2 update, but there’s still at least half an hour before the download goes live today. Just remember to please be patient (easy for me to say) we’re sure that within the next few hours the update will be made available to you.

void fog at bedrock on xbox? Can't see! Why are most of my trunks turned around, stuck in walls and black? Is the grass changing color to?
Finally, the update is live! Now to wait eight hours... But once I get how I shall begin the recreation of my fleet.
There's no reason for it not to. It's passed certification, there's nowhere else for it to go but live.
