The Nether Update has a Date!


The Nether Update has a Date!

You will fall in love with stroopwafels and artificial islands, clogs, tulips, and orange! The Netherlands Update finally arrives to Minecraft after a long wait! We are so happy...


I'm sorry, I need to make this call.

Yes, it is Mojang editorial. What does it mean to say "not the Netherlands, but you imbecile?" I just put on my clogs, and... I see. My apologies.

Prepare to be sucked into lava. There is a lot of lava! The Nether Update, Minecraft's next big adventure, will launch June 23rd on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It is also available on iOS, Android, Windows 10 and Windows 10. The Java version of the update will be available, as well as Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

If, like me, you are excited about the Nether and want to learn more about Minecraft's lava-fueled sauna, then you should visit the official Nether Update website. This page has lots of information about the new items, blocks, and threats that await you on the other side. You might prefer to plunge in with reckless abandon. You can do that too, but we won't tell you.

But that's not all. We've added a 20-minute soundtrack by Lena Raine to Spotify. This will help you get into the spirit of the Nether before you embark on your journey. We're still working on the remaining senses, such as smell.

The Nether awaits. Are you up to the challenge?
