The Village & Pillage update has added raids to villages, bandits and more adventures in the upper world. At the same time, the announced Nether Update will affect the Underworld of Minecraft, the local Hell.
Firstly, a new race, the Piglins, will be added to the game. These creatures look like pigmen, but are hostile, although they do not touch players dressed in gold armor. In addition, you can trade with them, exchanging for gold for valuable items. Nevertheless, gamers who open a chest protected by a Piglin will be attacked.
Secondly, along with the usual Piglins, “Piglin Beasts”, a mixture of a pig and a warthog, will appear in the game. They are also hostile to the player and does not save even the golden armor.
Thirdly, two new locations will appear in Hell - Soulsand Valley and Netherwart Forest. The first is a terrible gorge full of stalactites and blue fire, and in the second location strange trees grow.
The release date for Nether Update is still unknown.
