Following on from last fall's update to Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition beta and Minecraft: Pocket Edition, which saw the introduction of basic redstone components, Microsoft today announced that the game's next update will deliver even more advanced mechanisms as well as new enemies and achievements. Players will also be able to more easily share their favorite worlds with a new map import/export function.

The Overworld update, scheduled to drop at the end of February, will include a host of new components including, "comparators, repeaters, dispensers, droppers, hoppers, trapped chests and various additional Minecart types" according to an Xbox Wire post. The update will also bring witches to the two platforms as well as their cauldrons which not only contain randomly generated potions but which can also be used to dye your armor. What's more, players will be able to show off their most prized possessions -- whether it's loot or a fully-explored map -- thanks to the addition of Item Frames.

And for those looking for even more gamer glory, the Windows 10 Edition now offers eight additional achievements for completing various in-game tasks. The Windows 10 version is only available from the Windows Store, though you can pick up the Pocket Edition for iOS, Android, Kindle or Windows Phone from their prospective stores.
