Big additions are coming to Minecraft.
Minecraft Nether Update

For the most part, there isn't a whole lot that goes on in the Nether in Minecraft. The last I knew, it had some lava, some unique blocks, maybe a fortress here and there, but that was kind of it. On June 23, there might actually be a good reason to frequently visit the not-quite-hell dimension besides as an expressway to travel great distances.

June 23rd marks the release date for the big Nether Update for Minecraft. This update will be out on that date for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, Windows 10, and more. It will also be available for the Java version and will come out for Windows, MacOS, and Linux on the same day.

Mojang and Microsoft set up a special page that specifically talks about The Nether Update in all its glory. There will be new blocks, new items, new biomes, and new threats waiting for you in the Nether once this update drops. If you absolutely do not want any spoilers whatsoever, I suggest you don't click that link. It's really that simple.

If you want a taste of The Nether Update without the spoils, you can instead head on over to Spotify. Mojang put up a 20-minute long soundtrack by Lena Raine that should set the mood nicely for your upcoming adventures.
