Minecraft is one of the most universally popular games and has sold over millions of copies. The game has many dedicated players and will allow you to unlock all the creatives you desire. But through its recent update, Minecraft has surprised all its players as the Nether is getting rekindled in fresh new flames in the latest Nether Update. Normally, you can enter the Nether just by creating the nether portal but the place is considered to be far more dangerous than the Overworld. There are many new things provided in this update that will definitely surprise.
The nether world: What’s New?
There are many things that you need to check out this new Nether Update but many players have said that update was necessary and compulsory. This is because, over the years, Nether did not receive any type of good update or any meaningful content, and compared to Overworld, it appeared pretty much outdated. Given below are some of the things you need to watch out for in this latest update.
As a Minecraft player, you love crafting and mining and the Netherite stands out as a powerful item. Through this Nether Update, you will get the chance to mine through all the ancient debris in the most dangerous realm in Minecraft and then get mix the Netherite scrap with the gold ingots. This will allow you to get “Netherite Ingots” and you can also combine them with other ingots through the diamond gear. By doing so, you will build items, which can float in lava, look neat, and last longer.
New environments and biomes:
In Minecraft, when you explore places in the Overworld, you will encounter various types of environments known as biomes. Biomes contain icy tundra, jungles, forests, deserts, swamps, and Badlands, which are considered to be common. Players can explore the Nether through an Obsidian portal, and it was just a single biome. But through this new Nether Update, you will get the Nether environment, which the players are used to and go by the name Nether wastes. The update has added numerous biomes into the Nether as well.
This particular area is said to be filled with volcanic eruptions and the biome is filled with magma cubes and white ash. The new game update for Minecraft has introduced a new stone known as the Blackstone, which can be seen in Basalt Delta.
The Crimson Forest:
This is a fungal forest, which has eerie lights and massive mushrooms. You can climb the Weeping Vines within the overgrown biomes and farm the Nether Wart. The air in this forest is said to be pretty thick and carries spores. Through this Nether Update, you will get the chance to mine “Shroomlights”, which are glowing mushrooms and get light up all the dark areas in this environment.
The Bastion Remnants stands out as a civilization in the Nether’s version and it is a Blackstone ruin that is filled with both Piglins and Hoglins. It is said to spawn in each of the Nether biomes excluding Basalt Delta, as it acts equivalent to villages. The place is good for players as it will enable them to loot and explore the structures. Apart from that, it will also act as a base camp for the players as it will keep away all the enemies.
Soulsand Valley and Warped Forest:
The Soulsand Valley in this new Nether Update is a desert, which is created through Soul Soil and Soul Sand. The environment is pretty scary as it will slow down the players and is filled with skeleton aplenty, basalt pillars, and fossils. On the other hand, the Warped Forest is considered to be the least dangerous area in the Nether world. This blue forest is filled with all types of strange fungi and vegetation.
New creatures and enemies:
The Zog Piglins are known to attack the players and they are everywhere in the Nether world, but in this new Nether Update, you will encounter their corrupted versions. These new Piglins are the members of a civilization, which is pretty much aggressive and lives in both the Nether wastes and Crimson Forests. If players do not prepare themselves with the right armor, the Piglins will attack them. But they will definitely do trading with the players for some gold ingots. You will come across are the Hoglins who are aggressive and huge creatures and live in the Crimson Forests. Lastly, the Striders are passive creatures and the latest addition and its long legs help them to walk over the lava.
The Ruined Portals:
These are considered to be pretty disastrous as they provide evidence on accidents that have ripped the Nether portal apart. You will not find them in good shapes but they act as a good place for obsidian, new crying obsidian block, gold blocks, and treasure chests. You will come across many variants of these ruined portals and they are available both in the Overworld and the Nether.
Blocks and items:
If you are looking for any type of changes in the environment then there are many, which you will come across. The latest update will provide you with Lodestones, Target block, Crying Obsidian, Chain Blocks, New Block Variants, plenty of vegetations, and new banner patterns.
Music and effects:
Lena Raine is going to create three songs, which will be played in the new update and you will hear them in Nether waste, Crimson forests, Basalt deltas, and Soulsand Valley. Apart from that, there will be also new animation, particles and music, changes in the Redstone wires, good transitions between the biomes, and improvements in countless quality of life. There is an improvement in the accessibility and parity between the versions as well.
