As the gaming community eagerly anticipates, Minecraft 1.20 will be the next big update for the game, set to release in 2023. Although the update does not have a title yet, Mojang has stated that it has learned from its past mistakes of revealing features too early, leading to disappointment among players when things change during development or get pushed back into later updates. This time around, we’ve only seen part of the total features list for 1.20, and don’t have a name to hang our expectations on. But what we do know is that Mojang is focusing on “self expression, creativity, and intrinsic motivation” in this update.
One of the most exciting aspects of Minecraft is the ability to build and create whatever you can imagine. And it looks like Minecraft 1.20 will be delivering even more tools for players to express their creativity. So far, we know that there will be new aesthetic blocks added to the game, including bamboo wood and a functional chiseled bookshelf. The bamboo wood will come in a full set of blocks, including doors, stairs, trapdoors, and planks, and the chiseled bookshelf will not only allow players to place up to six books on it, but it will also have redstone signal capability. This means that players will be able to use the bookshelf in their redstone contraptions, adding an extra layer of functionality to their builds.
Minecraft has always been about more than just building and crafting. The game also includes a survival aspect, where players have to gather resources and fend off mobs to survive. And it looks like Minecraft 1.20 will be adding a new way for players to explore the game’s different biomes. The new camel mount will allow players to traverse the deserts with ease, and it’s sure to be a fun way to explore the game’s vast landscapes.
Speaking of mobs, Minecraft 1.20 is also set to introduce new mobs to the game. Although Mojang has not revealed any specifics, they have teased that there will be new mobs added to the game that will add to the game’s survival aspect. This could mean anything from new hostile mobs to new friendly mobs that can be domesticated and used to help players in their survival.
Minecraft 1.20 will launch sometime in 2023, though Mojang has not given a specific date yet. It is likely that the new version will launch a year after the latest one, sometime in the summer of 2023.
For those who can’t wait for the official release of Minecraft 1.20, Mojang has also released snapshots of the update for players to test out. These snapshots include the new features that are being added to the game, and allow players to get a sneak peek of what’s to come. The first snapshot for Minecraft 1.20 brought in camels and all the rest of the new stuff available right now for Java edition. As a bonus, this snapshot’s experimental features also include bundles, which we’ve been waiting quite some time to see implemented.
Minecraft is one of the most popular games of all time, and with each new update, it continues to evolve and improve. Minecraft 1.20 looks like it’s going to be no exception, with new features that will allow players to express their creativity and explore the game’s world in new ways. We can’t wait to see what Mojang has in store for us with this update, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated with.
