Mojang Studios initially teased the massive Nether update for Minecraft during MineCon Live 2019 last year, but now it finally has a release date; 23 June 2020 for all platforms including Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile.
The Minecraft Nether update will add new biomes, mobs, structures, blocks and visual effects with a unique and scary atmosphere. It will also add the Target block (which will act as a projectile hit-detector), two new biomes (the Soulsand Valley and Netherwart Forest), as well as the all-new Piglin Beasts and Piglin mobs. The Piglins will be a new civilization introduced to the Minecraft universe.
If you want to, you can listen to the Minecraft Nether update soundtrack composed by Lena Raine, best known for the music in Celeste and Guild Wars 2.
