Hostile, unfriendly, and also quite… red? The nefarious Nether is getting a well-deserved upgrade in the upcoming Nether update, and adding a bit of colour to the old realm was a high priority in the concept phase: “We wanted to extend the palette in the Nether to enhance the feeling that you’re not in the Overworld anymore. This was an experiment to find a suitable, contrasting palette to the original Nether setting.” – Johan Aronsson, Art Director

Staring into the cold, purple eyes of an Enderman is asking for an early retirement, UNLESS you’re wearing a CARVED PUMPKIN. Not even the most feared mob of Minecraft would attack you (probably out of sheer pity ) when wearing such a silly helmet!

The Netherwart Forest isn’t just abundantly red and full of warts (eeeew ) – it’s also a brand new area in the upcoming Nether Update: “This concept was made as we started talking about introducing huge nether warts in the Nether. This eventually led to us deciding to turn it into its own biome.” - Johan Aronsson, Art Director

Not just a pretty block that comes in every colour the code can think of, glass is an important resource for crafting and building! And you know what they say about glass: you can’t build the perfect snowglobe without breaking a few panes. So pack extra glass blocks before building!
