“Journey to the heart of the Nether in six new missions that will let you explore familiar biomes in an all-new way,” Mojang says. “The adventure ahead will bring new artifacts, weapons, and gear for those who are brave enough to face the fiery wrath of the Nether’s dangerous mobs.”
There’s also a free update out starting today. What does it include? A lot of stuff. Here are more details from the official Minecraft blog:
This update includes a major new feature called Ancient Hunts, which are procedurally-generated end-game missions that weave in and out of the Nether. Surviving these Ancient Hunts and beating the Ancient mobs within is the only way to get top-tier Gilded gear. There’s also a chance to get Gold, a new currency that a newly-arrived Piglin merchant in your camp will find very interesting.
Since its launch last May, the game has topped 10 million players. To celebrate, Mojang is giving everyone a brand-new cape and pet. Download the new update and check your inventory to find your freebies.
