In 2019, the Minecraft universe has grown bigger, better and blockier than ever before – and we’re so glad you were a part of it! Thank you all for an amazing year, and see you in 2020! 🎉 #HappyNewYear
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
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!
Enjoy climbing jagged cliffs to the mocking bleats of nearby goats? Then you should pick MOUNTAINS in our upcoming biome vote during #MINECON Live on Sept 28th. Vote for your favourite of three different biomes that you’d like to see updated next!
Frogs! Mangroves! Game developers with ranidaphobia! These are just some of the features that could be added to the Swamp biome – but only if you vote for it to be the biome we update next during #MINECON Live on Sept 28th!
