Minecraft recently announced a Nether update, bringing new biomes, mobs, structures, blocks, and visual effects to the game’s underworld.
During the Minecon this weekend, the developer showed some of the new features that we can expect from the update of The Nether, including the two new Soul Sand Valley and Nether Wart Forest biomes and the new inhabitants that we will find within them. To be close relatives of the Zombie Pigmen, Piglin Beasts are creatures that can be found living in the Forest of Lower Warts.
Minecon Live showed the initial kinematics of Minecraft Dungeons, gave us a little more details about the character’s creator, and even announced a board game.

Meanwhile, the Minecraft Nether update will introduce a new breed of creatures called Piggins. They are described as “a hostile mafia who really likes gold” and can attack players when they open chests. A new “Honey Block” resource is also being introduced to complement the recent introduction of bees and hives. There is still no information on the timing of the update, although last year’s Village and Pillage update was announced at Minecon 2018 and launched the following spring.
