Minecraft's Nether Update comes to Switch on June 23rd, 2020

It's a whole new Nether

Mojang has been hyping up Minecraft's big Nether update, and now we know when it's dropping. The content is set to go live on June 23rd, 2020, and brings a host of changes with it. Check out a recap of the update below.

GET TO KNOW THE DARK SIDE OF MINECRAFT

Beyond the Overworld awaits an ancient realm, unexplored by most players—until now. The Nether Update brings the heat to an already fiery dimension with new biomes, mobs, and blocks.

DISCOVER NETHERITE: A MATERIAL STRONGER THAN DIAMOND

Pure netherite—the strongest, most durable material in Minecraft—is no more. Piglins mined it all out. Now the only way to obtain it is by salvaging netherite scrap from ancient debris.

PREPARE TO BATTLE OR BARTER WITH THE PIGLINS

Piglins can be grumpy, though are willing to trade items if you bring the right goods. Stay on their good side if you can!

MEET THE PIGLINS

The snoutiest, tastiest mob in Minecraft! Keep away from the Hoglins, or hunt them if you dare. Approach them with caution.

THE TARGET BLOCK

Have you ever wanted to make your Redstone switches more flexible? Try the Target Block!

Mojang prepares Minecraft players for the upcoming Nether update with a refresher

Nether thought I'd see the day

As we've mentioned before, Mojang is working on a major update for the Nether in Minecraft. We aren't quite sure just how big the update will be, but it's clear we'll be in for quite a new experience.

While we wait for full details on what that update will bring, Mojang has put together a new blog on the Nether in general. If you need a refresher on what you'll find in the Nether, or perhaps you'll be visiting for the first time, this feature should help steer you safely through the area.

Mojang goes over Minecraft's Netherite Ingot, part of the upcoming Nether update

Nether give up

Mojang is hard at work on a Nether update for Minecraft, and it's going to include a bunch of new content and features. The team is putting together new articles on the official Minecraft blog to introduce players to these items, and this week they focus on the Netherite ingot.

“We decided to add netherite for two reasons. With the Nether update, we felt that we wanted to create a long-term goal for the players, and reward them for spending time in the Nether. We also felt that this was a chance to introduce a brand new material to work with – and that it was the perfect time to do so.” - Jens Bergensten, Chief Creative Officer
