Minecraft’s Nether update is here. The new Minecraft Nether update is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, Windows 10, and more on the Bedrock version, and Windows, Mac OS, and Linux on the Java version. Here’s a look at the new announcement trailer.

As noted in a post on Minecraft’s blog, the new update brings a whole new dimension of gameplay with new biomes, mobs, and blocks.

“Discover Netherite, a powerful new material that makes diamond look like cobblestone. Beware the Piglins as you either trade blows or strike a deal. 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.”

For those interested in all the details of the Nether update on Minecraft, each platform’s changelog is available in the links below.
