Minecraft’s Nether Update is now live. It adds four new biomes to the Nether within Minecraft: Soulsand Valley, Crimson Forest, Warped Forest, and Basalt Deltas. They’ll include new enemies and unique spawn rates.
Content for the update was detailed in a blog post on the official Minecraft site, including a list of new materials, enemies, and environments.
“Discover Netherite, a powerful new material that makes diamond look like cobblestone. Beware the Piglins as you either trade blows or strike a deal,” the post reads. “Avoid the hideous Hoglins, or hunt them for a snouty snack. Explore the Nether Wastes, search the Soulsand Valleys, traverse the Basalt Deltas, or venture into the Crimson and Warped Forests.”
