Is there a release date for the 1.20 update in 'Minecraft'?

After much waiting, Mojang finally revealed the release date for the 1.20 update in late May. The 1.20 update should hit the game on June 7, meaning so long as your game is fully updated you'll be able to enjoy all of the new features the Trials & Tales update has to offer.

The developers previously revealed that the new update would focus on “self-expression, representation, and storytelling," including plenty of new features for players to explore to add a bit of personality to their seed.

What new content will be in the 1.20 update in 'Minecraft'?

As is the case with all new content updates from Mojang, there are plenty of new blocks, features, and more for players to dive into when the update officially releases on June 7.

For starters, the developers hosted a mob vote ahead of the Minecraft Live event, and Sniffers won the popular vote. This mob can be spawned from eggs found in underwater chests and will help players find rare plants in the game. It's expected to be added with the 1.20 update.

In addition to this new mob, there will also be seven new default skins for characters to pick from when starting a game, providing more diversity and variation from Steve and Alex. Makena, Efe, Noor, Kai, Ari, Sunny, and Zuri will each provide different personalities for characters to take on as they explore their world in Minecraft.

Other confirmed updates include the addition of Archaeology, camels (that you can ride with friends), hanging signs, chiseled bookshelves that actually hold books, bamboo blocks, and armor trims (which players can try now).

There will, of course, be much more content when the update officially launches, though Mojang plans to slowly unveil these new features in the coming months.
