Minecon 2019: Minecraft Getting Major Updates

Mojang announced worldwide Minecraft Earth early access, a new biome update, a Minecraft board game and more at MineCon 2019 this weekend.

Mojang's MineCon Live 2019 showcase was jam-packed with Minecraft-related announcements, including incoming new biomes and the worldwide early access launch of Minecraft Earth. Ten years after its launch, Minecraft is still very popular, recently reaching more than 100 million active monthly players.

As popular as it is, Minecraft has spawned several spinoff games, and there's even a Minecraft movie in development. The Pokémon GO-like Minecraft Earth will bring Minecraft building into the real world with augmented reality resource gathering and construction, and the Diablo-style Minecraft Dungeons changes up the traditional Minecraft formula completely, focusing on dungeon crawling and loot collecting. It hasn't been all good news for Minecraft developments, though: the 4K, Minecraft Super Duper Graphics Pack was cancelled two years after its announcement, and the shutdown of Telltale games made the narrative-focused Minecraft: Story Mode games permanently unavailable.

Still, it appears the Minecraft brand is going strong. Mojang made several big announcements about both the main game and its spinoffs during MineCon 2019. Chief among these was the announcement of The Nether Update, which will introduce three new biomes and two new mobs to the Nether. The Soulsand Valley biome is particularly striking, swapping the Nether's signature red and orange color palette for dark brown walls and blue flames. Mojang also announced that a community poll held prior to MineCon decided that the Mountains biome will be getting a similar redesign in the future. The recently beta-tested Minecraft bee update will be coming to Java and Bedrock platforms soon, along with the new, sticky honey block. In addition to these additions, Mojang announced equippable capes will be coming to Minecraft this fall, and the Minecraft character creator tool will be coming to both Minecraft and Minecraft Earth.

Speaking of the mobile AR title, Minecraft Earth will soon graduate from its closed beta days and enter early access. Players around the world will be able to play the early access version of the game beginning in October. In other spinoff news, Mojang revealed the opening cinematic for Minecraft Dungeons, and the company announced Minecraft: Builders & Biomes, the series' first official board game. Builders & Biomes, developed by board game producer Ravensburger, tasks players with collecting, building, mining and defeating enemies in order to earn the most experience points and secure victory.

While all of this could be exciting news for Minecraft fans, the imminent release of Minecraft Earth has the most potential to make an impact on the gaming community as a whole. Few things have as close to the universal appeal of Pokémon as Minecraft's simple, collect-and-build mechanics. If any mobile game could become a major phenomenon like Pokémon GO, it's Minecraft Earth.

Minecraft updates: The latest Java and Bedrock patch notes

By Philip Palmer

What's new in the latest Minecraft updates for both the Java and Bedrock editions.

Want to find out what's coming in the latest Minecraft update? These content drops add all sorts of mobs and materials to the game, but they also implement those all-important bug fixes and quality-of-life changes. Minecraft patch notes are a great resource for finding out exactly what these changes are and what new features are coming in each new update.

There are two versions of Minecraft that often receive updates at different times. Minecraft Java Edition is the original standalone PC version and is usually the first to get updated. Bedrock is the newer version made for Windows 10, consoles, and mobile devices, and the most crucial difference is that this version isn't open to modding, but does support crossplay.

If this is your first visit, you've stumbled across our running catalogue of what's new in both versions of Minecraft. You can read about Minecraft Java updates on this page including version 1.18, or head straight to the second page for Minecraft Bedrock patch notes.

Upcoming: Caves & Cliffs Part 2 1.18

Minecraft's next major content release is the second half of their major Caves & Cliffs update. This time, bug changes will be coming to (you guessed it) the game's caves and cliffs. It was originally planned as part of update 1.17, but Mojang decided to split the update into two parts. The first part released on June 8 while the second part of the update arrives later this year. 

The Minecraft 1.18 update is when caves will get their own new biomes like the lovely Lush Caves and the much spookier Deep Dark biome where the new Warden mob lives. The experimental snapshots have also revealed new mountain-based biomes such as the Stony Peaks, the Snowy Slopes, and the Mountainous Meadow.

Minecraft Java Update: 1.17 Caves & Cliffs Part 1

Version 1.17.1

  • Blue axolotls can now only be obtained through breeding
  • Non-screaming goats now have a rare chance to produce a screaming goat when bred
  • Status effects on goats now also apply when the goat is jumping or ramming
  • Raised the drop rate for copper ingots from Drowned to 11% + 2% per level of looting
  • Powder snow now fills cauldrons 2 times faster than before (still pretty slowly, though!)
  • Zombies, Zombie Villagers, Husks and Drowned will no longer pick up glow ink sacs

1.17 Features

  • Added Dripstone Block and Pointed Dripstone
  • Added Block of Amethyst, Budding Amethyst, Amethyst Cluster, and Amethyst Bud

  • Drowned now has a chance of dropping a Copper Ingot, and they no longer drop Gold Ingots
  • Experience Orbs now sometimes merge when in large quantities to improve performance. This does not change the rate at which the player can absorb them, it simply limits the amount of separate orbs floating around in the world. Orbs that merge will gain the lifetime of the most recently created one.
  • Holding down the space bar now increases the scroll speed in the credits
  • Minecarts and Rails work in water
  • Particles now appear when Pistons break blocks

Amethyst Blocks

  • Amethyst comes in block form inside the Geodes in two ways: Block of Amethyst and Budding Amethyst
  • All types of Amethyst blocks (Clusters included) create beautiful sounds when you walk on them, break them, place them, or hit them with a projectile – go make some music!

Amethyst Clusters

  • Amethyst Clusters grow from Budding Amethyst, which can be found inside Amethyst Geodes
  • Clusters have four growth stages: Small Amethyst Bud, Medium Amethyst Bud, Large Amethyst Bud, and Amethyst Cluster
  • Clusters can only grow when they are placed on Budding Amethyst blocks
  • Fully-grown Amethyst Clusters drop four Amethyst Shards (or more with Fortune) when mined with a Pickaxe, and drop two Amethyst Shards when broken by hand, Piston, or other means

  • Amphibious!
  • Axolotls spawn in underground water that is in total darkness with Stone, Granite, Diorite, Andesite, Tuff, or Deepslate below
  • Axolotls love tropical fish! Bucket of Tropical Fish can be used to breed Axolotls.
  • Axolotls will swim around with you if you’re holding a Bucket of Tropical Fish in either hand
  • When a player kills a mob that the Axolotl was attacking or being attacked by, the Axolotl will show its appreciation by granting the player temporary Regeneration and removing any Mining Fatigue effects
  • If the player has more than 2 minutes of Regeneration effect left already, the axolotl will not grant additional regeneration
  • You can pick up your Axolotl in a Water Bucket and carry it around just like a Salmon or a Cod!
  • Axolotls will always chase after and attack Squids, Glow Squids, Tropical Fish, Cod, Salmon, Pufferfish, Drowned, Guardians, and Elder Guardians
  • Axolotls do not like being out of water, and will dry up and begin taking damage if they are out of water for longer than 5 minutes
  • An Axolotl will not dry up as long as they are in water or rain
  • Sometimes when an Axolotl takes damage while inside water, it will pretend to be dead so that it stops being attacked
  • There are four common varieties and one rare variety (blue) of Axolotl
  • Axolotls spawn in underground water sources that are in total darkness and above natural stone blocks

Bone Meal

  • A crinkly, crunchy sound plays when Bone Meal is used

Budding Amethyst

  • Amethyst Buds can only grow when attached to Budding Amethyst, and will grow until they become Amethyst Clusters

Building Blocks Tab

  • All ores have been reordered to be in the same location in the creative inventory
  • Compact forms of raw and refined underground materials have been reordered


  • Candles come in all sixteen colors and one uncolored variant
  • Up to four Candles can be placed in one block
  • Waterloggable! (But you cannot light them underwater, silly)
  • Wish anybody a happy birthday with a Cake with a Candle!
  • Candles can only be placed if there is a solid surface below but will remain even if the surface below is removed


  • Cauldrons can now be filled with Lava and Powder Snow Buckets!
  • Cauldrons filled with lava give off a Redstone signal with Strength 3 when used with a comparator

Copper Blocks

  • Craft nine Copper Ingots into a Copper Block
  • Craft Cut Copper, Cut Copper Stairs, and Cut Copper Slabs
  • The Stonecutter can be used to craft the different Copper Block variants
  • Use Honeycomb to craft Waxed Copper Blocks
  • Right-click with Honeycomb on Copper Blocks to wax them
  • Use Honeycomb in a Dispenser to wax Copper Blocks

Copper Ore

  • Copper Ore can be found in ore blobs across the Overworld, similar to Iron and Coal (this is not the final generation for Copper…)
  • Smelt Copper Ore to get a Copper Ingot
  • Copper Ore drops 2-3 Raw Copper


  • Deepslate can be found in the deepest parts of the underground, and is slightly tougher to mine than normal Stone
  • Deepslate will drop Cobbled Deepslate, similar to how Stone drops Cobblestone
  • You can still obtain Deepslate with Silk Touch
  • Like Cobblestone, Cobbled Deepslate can be used to craft basic tools, Furnaces and Brewing Stands
  • You can also craft the following blocks with Deepslate:
  • Cobbled Deepslate Slab
  • Cobbled Deepslate Stairs
  • Cobbled Deepslate Wall
  • Polished Deepslate
  • Polished Deepslate Slab
  • Polished Deepslate Stairs

  • Cobbled Deepslate can be smelted into Deepslate

Deepslate Ores

  • When ore is generated in the same place as Deepslate, Deepslate variants of that ore are now generated instead
  • Twice as tough to mine as normal ores

Dripstone Block

  • Decorative block
  • Can be crafted with four Pointed Dripstone

Pointed Dripstone

  • Forms a stalactite if placed on the ceiling or a stalagmite if placed on the floor
  • Can be combined to form longer stalactites & stalagmites
  • Stalactites and stalagmites merge if the tips are next to each other unless you press shift while placing
  • Stalagmites will break if they’re not attached to something below
  • Landing or jumping on a stalagmite hurts! They are sharp
  • Stalactites fall down if not attached to something above
  • Being hit by a falling stalactite hurts! They are sharp
  • Stalactites drip water (or lava if there is lava above the ceiling)
  • A stalactite with a water source above the ceiling will gradually fill a cauldron below with water
  • A stalactite with a lava source above the ceiling will fill a cauldron below with lava after a while
  • Thrown Tridents break Pointed Dripstone

Dripstone Growth

  • If a stalactite is hanging from a Dripstone Block with a water source above, it will slowly grow both the stalactite from above and a stalagmite from below
  • Growth speed is random but very slow, a single growth step can take several Minecraft days
  • A stalactite will only grow up to seven blocks long
  • A stalactite will only cause stalagmite growth if the floor or stalagmite below is within 10 blocks
  • If the stalactite tip is inside water it won’t drip, and therefore won’t trigger any growth
  • If the stalagmite tip is inside water it won’t receive drops, and therefore won’t be grown by a dripping stalactite. Same thing if there is any fluid between the two tips.
  • A stalagmite or stalactite will never grow into a fluid

Glow Lichen

  • A dim light source that generates in caves
  • Use Shears to pick it up
  • Use Bone Meal to spread it along block surfaces

Glow Squid

  • Glow Squids are well-lit and can be seen from far distances
  • When killed, Glow Squids drop Glow Ink Sacs
  • Glow Ink Sacs can be used on Signs to make the text super visible, even at night. Works with colors!
  • Craft a Glow Item Frame by combining a Glow Ink Sac with an Item Frame in a Crafting Table. Any item in a Glow Item Frame is perfectly illuminated, even at night.
  • Use an Ink Sac on a Sign to remove the glow effect
  • Axolotls will attack any Glow Squids they see, so… be careful
  • Glow Squids spawn in underground water that is in total darkness with Stone, Granite, Diorite, Andesite, Tuff, or Deepslate below


  • Goats spawn in mountains
  • Goats can scale the sides of mountains with their incredible jumps
  • Goats can be tempted and bred using Wheat
  • Goats are another source of Milk!
  • Goats will ram anything that moves… also Armor Stands
  • Two in every 100 goats have something very loud to tell you!
  • Goats will avoid walking on Powder Snow
  • Screaming Goats will use their ram attack more often than other Goats will
  • Mobs rammed by Goats do not retaliate

Infested Blocks

  • Infested Blocks are no longer instantly destroyed, and instead, have half the destroy time of their non-infested counterpart

Lightning Rod

  • A Lightning Rod is crafted from three Copper Ingots
  • Keeps your builds safe (well, as long as the closest area around the Lightning Rod is fireproof) during thunderstorms!
  • The Lightning Rod will protect an area of 8 * 16 blocks around it from the, sometimes devastating, lightning strikes!
  • Lightning Rods give off a Redstone signal when struck by lightning

Lush Caves Blocks

  • Added Moss
  • Added Dripleaves
  • Added Rooted Dirt and Hanging Roots
  • Added Spore Blossoms (currently only available in the Creative inventory)
  • Added Cave Vines and Glow Berries
  • Added Azalea Bushes

Azalea Bushes

  • Added Azalea Bushes as well as Flowering Azaela Bushes
  • Bees see Flowering Azalea (and Flowering Azalea Leaves) as flowers
  • Bonemeal Azalea or Flowering Azalea to get an Azalea Tree

Cave Vines & Glow Berries

  • Cave Vines grow down from the ceiling, like Weeping Vines
  • When they grow they have a chance of producing Glow Berries
  • Glow Berries are a natural light source as well as a food source
  • Foxes eat Glow Berries
  • Use Glow Berries to plant new Cave Vines
  • Bonemealing a Cave Vine will create Glow Berries

Drip Leaves

  • Small Dripleaf needs moisture, so it grows on Clay or underwater
  • The facing direction of Small Dripleaf blocks is determined by which direction the player is facing when placing it
  • The Wandering Trader will sometimes sell Small Dripleaf plants
  • Small Dripleaf grows into Big Dripleaf when bonemealed
  • Big Dripleaf grows taller when bonemealed
  • If you stand on a Big Dripleaf, it will tilt after a while, and you will fall off
  • A tilted Big Dripleaf will tilt up again after a while
  • A Big Dripleaf will tilt when hit by a projectile
  • A Redstone powered Big Dripleaf will not tilt (except when hit by a projectile)


  • Two new decorative blocks: Moss Block and Moss Carpet
  • Moss Carpet can be crafted from Moss Blocks
  • Moss Blocks can be crafted with Cobblestone or Stone Bricks to make the mossy versions of those blocks


  • Added Rooted Dirt and Hanging Roots – decorative blocks that will appear in the upcoming Lush Caves biome
  • Bonemealing Rooted Dirt grows Hanging Roots underneath
  • Tilling Rooted Dirt with a Hoe will convert it into Dirt, and pop out a Hanging Roots item.

Spore Blossoms

  • A beautiful large flower placed on ceilings
  • Particles drip from it and will appear in the air around it

Minecarts and Rails In Water

  • All Rails can be waterlogged (works with a Dispenser & Water Bucket too)
  • Flowing water doesn’t break Rails

New Nether Biomes

Basalt Deltas
Remnants of volcanic eruptions, this biome sports a high concentration of basalt columns and lava deltas. Walking through it, you will be surrounded by flowing flakes of white ash. Magma cubes finally have their own home and spawn very frequently here. A new block, blackstone, can be found here in large patches.

Crimson Forest
Crimson nylium carpets the cave floor with all kinds of strange new vegetation. Crimson nylium can be bonemealed to get more of this strange new vegetation. Huge crimson fungi make up the "trees" of this forest, with Shroomlights lighting up the forest floor. Nether wart blocks can be cleared quickly using a hoe. Weeping vines grow from the cave ceilings and fungi. Hoglins wander these forests. Crimson spores swirl through the air.

Soulsand Valley
An open space made mostly of soul sand and soul soil. Basalt pillars span from floor to ceiling. Fossil remains of unknown creatures from the past litter the valley. Ash falls through the air. A light blue glow envelopes the valley. Beware of skeletons here.

Warped Forest
Warped nylium carpets the cave floor with all kinds of strange new vegetation. Warped nylium can be bonemealed to get more of the strange new vegetation. Huge warped fungi make up the "trees" of this forest, with Shroomlights lighting up the forest floor. Warped wart blocks can be cleared quickly using a hoe. A dark blue fog covers the forest. Warped spores swirl through the air. The Warped Forests are strange, but also the least hostile place in the Nether.

New Nether Mobs


  • Hoglins are big aggressive beasts that live in crimson forests in the Nether
  • They attack players on sight. Be careful – they can easily knock you off a ledge!
  • Hoglins drop pork and sometimes leather, but not willingly
  • You can breed Hoglins by feeding them crimson fungi. Do so at your own risk
  • Hoglins get hunted by Piglins sometimes, but they don't go down without a fight
  • Despite this, Hoglins and Piglins aren't enemies – more like an ecosystem
  • Baby Hoglins like to pretend they are tough – but don't worry, they're more bark than bite
  • Want to keep Hoglins off your back? Pro tip: Hoglins hate the smell of warped fungi
  • Hoglins that somehow end up in the Overworld become Zoglins fairly quickly – but who would ever bring a Hoglin to the Overworld?


  • Zoglins are zombified Hoglins – the result of bringing a Hoglin into the Overworld
  • Unlike Hoglins, they can't be bred or fed, and they don't care about warped fungus
  • Beware – these beasts are raving mad and attack just about everything they see!


  • Piglins are an aggressive civilization that lives in the Nether
  • They mostly hang around in Crimson Forests, but you might find some in the Nether Wastes too
  • They think of players as target practice and will attack on sight
  • However, if you dress appropriately, they will see you as a respectable figure. Or tolerable at least
  • Piglins are suspicious of strangers. If they see you opening a chest or other container, they will assume that you're stealing and will treat you accordingly
  • If Piglins hear you break a chest or a block of gold (or similar), they will also assume you are stealing
  • Piglins LOVE gold and get very distracted by gold items
  • Gold ingots are currency to Piglins. Throw ingots at them, or right-click them with an ingot, to barter for various goods
  • Piglins sometimes get hungry and hunt Hoglins for food. Or they try at least. They results... vary.
  • Piglins prefer to hunt and fight in groups. When a fight is happening, everyone wants in
  • Piglins that somehow end up in the Overworld become zombified fairly quickly
  • Piglins are creeped out by soul fire and Zombified Piglins, and will avoid them if possible
  • Wither skeletons and Withers are historic enemies of the Piglins and will be attacked on sight
  • Baby Piglins are not as dangerous, but they can be mischievous, so watch your back
    • ...and they like to play with Baby Hoglins
  • ...and they like to play with Baby Hoglins

  • Zombified Piglins continuously spread to other Zombified Piglins, as long as they see their target

  • Added Lodestone. Crafted from a Netherite ingot and chiseled stone bricks
  • Use a compass on a lodestone to create a lodestone compass, which will point to that lodestone


  • Mine ancient debris in the lower depths of the Nether. At your own risk though. No insurance coverage for that
  • Combine four Netherite scrap with four gold ingots in a crafting table to make a Netherite ingot
  • Refine it into Netherite scrap in a furnace or blast furnace
  • Use a smithing table to fuse the Netherite ingot with your diamond weapon, tool, or armor

  • Can only be obtained by bartering with those pesky Piglins

Bastion Remnants

  • Added four separate bastion remnant types: bridge, Hoglin stable, housing units, and treasure room
  • You can find these sizable structures in all Nether biomes, except the treacherous ash-dusted regions of Basalt Deltas
  • Explore, loot, and conquer a bastion remnant to call it your home – but beware! Piglins don't take kindly to intruders stealing their possessions

Ruined Portals

  • They can be found in any Overworld or Nether biome
  • Some are hidden underground, under the sea, or buried in sand

Nether Update mob anger rules

Forgive Dead Players

  • If this gamerule is disabled, then angered mobs will stay angry even if the targeted player dies
  • If both forgiveDeadPlayers and universalAnger are enabled, an angered neutral mob will stop being angry when their target dies. They won't seek any new targets after that
  • Notable exception: Angered Zombified Piglins continuously spread anger. So even if one Zombified Piglin stops being angry because its target died, other angered Zombified Piglins nearby are likely to make it angry again. The only way to stop the anger is if none of the angered Zombified Piglins see a player for a while

Neutral Mob Anger
Updated anger management for most neutral mobs (polar bear, wolf, bee, Enderman, Piglin, Zombified Piglin).

  • When hurt by a player, the neutral mob will target that player and try to kill it
  • The mob will stay angry until the player is dead or out of sight for a while
  • Anger is persistent, so a player can't escape by temporarily logging out or switching dimension
  • If a targeted player dies near the angered mob, it will stop being angry (unless forgiveDeadPlayers is disabled)
  • Neutral mobs also get angry at other mobs who hurt them. However, that anger is not persistent
  • Angered neutral mobs will only attack the offending player, not innocent bystanders
    • Notable exception: If a beehive or nest is broken, the bees will be angry at all nearby players
  • Notable exception: If a beehive or nest is broken, the bees will be angry at all nearby players
  • Notable exception: If a beehive or nest is broken, the bees will be angry at all nearby players
  • Some mobs spread anger (wolf, Zombified Piglin, Piglin, bee). If a player attacks one, all nearby mobs of the same type will get angry at that player

Universal Anger
Universal anger is basically guilt by association. A neutral mob attacked by players will be angry at players in general, regardless of who attacked them.

  • A neutral mob attacked by a player will target the nearest player, even if that player wasn't the attacker
  • Every time the neutral mob is hit by a player it will update its attack target to the nearest player
  • Players can use this to make neutral mobs attack other players. Who would ever do something that devious?
  • Universal anger does not apply when a neutral mob is attacked by another mob - only when it is attacked by a player
  • Universal anger is persistent. The angered mob will stay angry even if the player logs out and logs in, or jumps through a portal and back
  • Mobs that spread anger will also spread universal anger. So if a player attacks a Zombified Piglin, all other Zombified Piglins within sight will be universally angry and attack their nearest player
  • An angered neutral mob will stop being angry if it can't see any eligible target for a while
