It's the moment every avid Minecrafter has been waiting for - the Halloween update is now available to play. Simply log into the Minecraft website and boot the game up (or download the latest version) to play.

Notch has been racing against time this week trying to get everything he originally promised into this update, and for the most part, he definitely succeeded. The only elements missing from this new update are the torches that go out after a while, the lanterns and working carts - apparently the carts are going to be appearing in the beta version, which will hopefully be out before the end of the year.

Of course, the biggest new addition in this update is the hell world - make sure you check out all the info in our big hands-on.
