minecraft in 2020

THE NETHER UPDATE AND BEYOND Announced at Minecon just a few months ago, the Nether Update is the next big development in Minecraft and will likely be released in the second half of 2020. It’s been a long time since the Nether got any attention, and that’s all changing with this future release. So what can you expect? NEW BIOMES! There are no fewer than THREE new biomes being added to the Nether: Soulsand Valleys, which are strange areas generated entirely out of soul sand and filled with blue fog and fossils; Netherwart Forest Red, a forest made entirely of Netherwart with new mushroom variants to collect; and Netherwart Forest Blue, a Netherwart forest overrun with blue-green fungus. Intriguing! NEW MOBS! Populating these new biomes, you’ll find piglins, which are like unzombified pigmen who love…

minecraft earth tips

CRAFT SWORDS TO CLEAR COBWEBS Like in regular Minecraft, if you’re getting hung up (literally!) on cobwebs while ploughing through your adventures, swords will make fast work of them. Plus, you’ll be ready to slice up some spiders without having to change what you’re holding! PRESERVE YOUR TOOLS EARLY ON It takes a lot longer to craft tools in Minecraft Earth than in other versions of the game, so if you’re trying to stop your hard-crafted stuff from being used up quickly, save the best for when you really need it. For example, break stone blocks with a stone pickaxe, and save your iron one for when you find some ore! You’ll always have way more stone than iron. COMPLETE THE CHALLENGES! Pay attention to the challenges on offer. The more you finish, the more…

sneakiest survival mode tactics

GETTING STARTED As soon as you have a chance, get yourself a steed. Horse and donkeys spawn in the plains and savanna biomes,or you can breed them both to create a mule.To tame one, you have to first “break” it by approaching with an empty hand and riding on its back.The horse will throw you of, but repeat this enough times and it will stop doing so. This allows you to open the inventory while riding it and equip a saddle, some armour and / or a chest. distances because they move a lot allow carry extra goods. USE YOUR MINIMAP If you’re trying to explore, remember you can place a map in the offhand slot to display it as a minimap in the bottom corner of the screen – a much easier…

the 7 weirdest blocks in minecraft

SLIME BLOCK Crafted out of nine slimeballs, this partially transparent block is slightly slippery, slows down players moving across it and – perhaps most importantly – will break any fall! When you drop onto a slime block, you don’t take damage and instead bounce back up a portion of the height you fell from. Eventually, you’ll bounce to a safe stop! MYCELIUM Found only in the mushroom plains biome, mycelium spreads like grass and can only be collected with a Silk Touch-enchanted shovel. When placed, it will keep any mushrooms on it alive indefinitely – even in direct sunlight. HONEY Four honey bottles can be crafted into one honey block (you’ll keep the bottles!). The fun thing about honey blocks it that mobs, players and other blocks stick to them. You can use a honey…

It’s official: the previously teased bees are now part of the Minecraft world! The buzzy creatures were added to the gamejust before Christmas, if you’re using the Bedrock Edition. Download the latest update, and they’ll be awaiting you! As part of their arrival, we also get honey blocks, hives and nests, plus baby bees. How’s that for an update with a sting to it?! MINECRAFT TOPS YOUTUBE CHART There have been lots of videogames battling for everyone’s attention this year, but which do you think topped the chart for the most watched on YouTube? That’s right, Minecraft! It defeated contenders such as Fortnite, with over 100 billion YouTube views registered for Minecraft on the service. Fortnite was in second with just over 60 billion views. Not bad, right, considering that Minecraft is…
