A special pre-release version of Alpha v1.2.0 was specially given to PC Gamer and Indiegames as a preview version.[1] Multiple differences between this preview and the officially-released Alpha v1.2.0 can be seen in the released footage.

Differences from Alpha v1.2.0[edit]

  • Zombie Pigman
    • Has the original blood texture, instead of the slime/decay.[2]
    • Runs around making pig noises, and is making zombie noises when hurt.
    • They don't have their arms up like a Zombie, and they are not wielding a sword either.
  • Glowstone
    • Drops itself instead of a glowstone dust.
  • Ghast
    • Does not have any sound effects.


  • On the same day of the release of the preview, Minecraft hit 500,000 sales.
