Pre-Release Twittered Today (08/21) for Tomorrow (08/22)

Postby lindawing » August 22nd, 2014, 2:43 am

After much searching, I finally found this:

http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/1.8

Right at the top, it says the official pre-release will now be tomorrow (08/22/14). They cite this twitter:

I don't know who seargedp is, but evidently part of the Minecraft staff.

In the meantime, we're still on 14w34d until tomorrow...sigh.

Ugh at least it's actually coming finally. Been waiting an age.

Even after the pre-release, there's no knowing exactly how long it will be until the actual release of 1.8, but obviously it must be fairly close. :uhhuh:

It's 3:15 AM. I've been playing in 14w34d all night, and every once in a while I'd quit the game and then restart it, to see if the pre-release would come up. Not yet! I know Sweden is out ahead of us here, but I'm not sure how many hours. I was kind of hoping that would make the change show up in my game by now (maybe around midnight). Evidently, though, they didn't get it pre-released right away. I sure hope they are able to do it at some point today, to be sure!

So what happened? Isn't it supposed to show up in the snapshots?

It's very hard to figure out WHICH 1.8 pre-release is being talked about. Evidently there was a BETA 1.8 release back in 2011, which is NOT the same as the 1.8 pre-release which is due to happen now.

Nobody seems to have posted ANYWHERE, exactly how you are supposed to be able to play the pre-release. Does anyone here know for sure?

I need to stop obsessing over this, and go to bed...sigh.
