Mojang Studios has announced that the long awaited Neather Update is coming June 23 on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, Windows 10, and more. The update will also be available on the Java version, and will roll out on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux during the same day.
It’s going to be a big one: the famously drab underground is set to look a whole lot more pretty and menacing, with new biomes like Soulsand Valley and Netherwart Forest, and some new friends (or foes) in the form of Piglins.
Aside from these highlights, you can look forward to new blocks and items too, which should please those among us (myself) who tend to stick to creative. The soundtrack is composed by Lena Raine of Celeste, and you can listen to it right now, right here.
Of course, you might have dipped into the Nether update already via last snapshot that went live in February. There’s a nice spread of new enemies to contend with and challenges to overcome, including the Hoglins: they look like hogs, basically, and they want to kill you, of course.
