Minecraft is the ultimate virtual sandbox where you can build anything your heart desires, except maybe a time machine to go back to a time when you didn’t spend 10 hours straight playing Minecraft.
It’s a game where you can dig deep into the ground to find rare ores, and then promptly get lost in a labyrinth of tunnels and never find your way back to the surface.
But don’t worry, Minecraft has got you covered with its friendly blocky animals that will keep you company, like chickens, pigs, and even the occasional explosive creeper who just wants to give you a hug.
Mojang sheds light
Mojang, the creator of Minecraft, has finally revealed the official title for the upcoming major update. Previously known as update 1.20, the new update is now called “Trails and Tales,” as TechRaptor reveals. The update focuses on self-expression, storytelling, and world-building, with the Journey connecting all of these elements.
While the release date for the update has not been announced yet, some of its features are already available for testing in snapshots and betas. The update will include new blocks, a cherry blossom biome, the Sniffer mob, and the Archaeology feature. It remains to be seen if there are more surprises in store for Minecraft players.
There are several Minecraft spinoffs that have been released over the years. Minecraft: Story Mode was a narrative-driven spinoff game that was developed by Telltale Games and released in 2015. It featured a new cast of characters and a story that was separate from the main game’s sandbox gameplay. Minecraft Dungeons is another spinoff that was released in 2020. It’s a dungeon-crawling game that takes place in the Minecraft universe, but with a focus on combat and loot.
Grab your pickaxe, saddle up your pig, and get ready to explore the vast and endlessly entertaining world of Minecraft. Just remember to set an alarm, or you might find yourself waking up in a pile of dirt and regret.
