Almost anything is possible
Your world in Minecraft will be randomly generated, and you appear in a land surrounded by water, along with mountains, valleys, trees and creatures. It’s not clear what to do except explore to begin with but as the sun sets, creatures appear, who will kill you. Survival will be impossible in the open, so you need to build a shelter to hide out in for the first night. Collecting wood from trees and shrubs, coal and stone from coves, you have to use your inventory to create equipment, planks and more. Once you know how, mining and building is pretty quick, and you will create some really cool structures. You will absolutely basically limited by your imagination.
A new realm has been added to Minecraft, which allows faster travel through the huge worlds. Called The Nether, it resembles Terrible, and is full of flowing lava plus monsters. You can access The Nether using portals made from Obsidian you have mined. Also, when you create a new Minecraft world, it will now be more varied, with ‘biomes’ of different landscape, like desert, tundra and snow. NPC (non player characters) now roam villages, which can serve as early shelters for you at night, if you can see them!
Big improvements in version 1 . 0
Version 1 . 0 has its own nice cosmetic changes, including a good HD texture pack, better light from torches and even prettier sunsets and sunrises. The game launcher furthermore looks better. There is now a ‘Creative Mode’, which makes you invincible, gives you unlimited resources, allows you to take a flight, and fast forward/rewind time! This particular mode is ideal for players who just want to get on and build cool stuff, without worrying about staying alive.
