According to tweets from a rep at Minecraft developer 4J Studios the upcoming 1.8.2 update for Xbox 360 will not remove your existing worlds. This update is the one of the most highly anticipated thus far and as because it is almost completely through the Microsoft certification program fans have become more and more eager to find out everything they can, and especially how it will affect the worlds they currently have.
Minecraft developers are trying to assure players that in addition to adding a more purposeful and dangerous elements to the game that this update won’t take anything away from what players already have
According to 4J Studios this update will add 3 brand new in-game modes. For the best Minecraft builders there will be what is known as Superflat Worlds which will save you from needs to level entire mountains and hills to begin building large projects. The downside to this is that you won’t be able to find hidden structures like Strongholds and enemies will have a better advantage due to better visibility.
Probably the most anticipated feature is Creative Mode which is similar to God Mode in other titles. This mode allows you to fly, reach infinite blocks and have a world free from all enemies so you can build with no worry. You will also be able to build something hassle-free and then back out and turn on Survival Mode so you can better enjoy your creation.
The 1.8.2 update will also have features that will make the game more fun for newbies such as an improved Tutorial World and more Easter Eggs. The newer tutorial mode will have new structures, mechanics, features and terrains.
Due to the mechanics overhaul that has been mentioned some users have become nervous about whether the worlds they have painstakingly build will still be available when they download this update. Most likely everything will be where you left it, and according Stuart Ross, a 4J Studios rep, the majority of the new mechanics will be universal which mean they will work on your old worlds as well.
There is still no definite release date for Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 1.8.2
