The first snapshot of Minecraft’s Nether Update is playable today

Last year, Mojang announced that a big overhaul was planned for the hellish Nether dimension in Minecraft. The first playable look at that update has landed today in a game snapshot that Java Edition players can access through their launcher. There's a lot to look through already, including spooky new trees, stronger armor, and creepy music.

Feature: You can probably learn a lot about me from these Minecraft 1.15 seeds

The best Minecraft 1.15 seeds – 1.14 & 1.15 seeds list with Amidst screenshots

Kids these days just don't seem to realise that Minecraft seeds are far more than just the string of characters that make up your Minecraft world: they're a form of artistic expression. Why leave the game to dredge up some meaningless string of numbers, when you could instead seed your world with something like "I love you 3000", or "RobertUnderdunkTerwilliger", or some other excellent film…

Best Minecraft skins from the past 10 years (download links included!)

Minecraft skins sure do make for an enticing challenge for designers. The challenge of trying to create a recognisable face or to properly portray certain types of clothing using just a tiny grid of pixels. It's been pretty incredible to see some of the things that various Minecraft players and communities have created over the past 10 years, so we've collated 64 of the best…

Best Minecraft servers 1.15 – Survival servers, Hunger Games, and more

I still remember what Minecraft servers were like back in 2012 and 2013. The vast majority were just survival servers, perhaps with one or two anti-griefing mods installed but nothing more in-depth than that. And one or two big names were just beginning to pave the way for the minigames servers that now utterly dominate the Minecraft servers landscape. But whether you're looking for Hunger…

Feature: Minecraft mods for every mood

Best Minecraft mods 1.14 (and a few 1.12 mods too)

Minecraft mods have been around very nearly as long as Minecraft itself - and probably far longer than most of its players, too. Vanilla Minecraft is all well and good, and Mojang admittedly add more and more content with each major update; but they cannot hope to match even a hundredth of the rate at which the colossal Minecraft community is churning out mods of…

Best Minecraft shaders 1.14

Many people believe that Minecraft shaders force you to choose between a prettier Minecraft and a faster, smoother Minecraft. And that's true, to a certain extent; but there's a wide range of Minecraft shaders out there nowadays, and they occupy the whole spectrum when it comes to performance and optimisation. We've done our best to cover this spectrum with our list of the very best…

Minecraft Dungeons shows off co-op and traps in new developer diary

Beloved no-longer-indie game Minecraft is dabbling in all sorts of new genres. It was already re-imagined as a narrative adventure in the spinoff Minecraft: Story Mode series and, if you hadn't heard, will be delving into dungeon crawler territory in April. Mojang developers released a new video today to talk more about co-op play and procedural levels in Minecraft Dungeons.

Feeling low? It’s okay. Join us in our gaming happy places

It's been a tough weekend for a lot of people. And there's a tough season coming up, too. Despite Saint Nick's PRs working over time to make us all cheerful, Christmas can actually be a sad and stressful time, can't it? Listen: it’s ok to be sad. It's fine. You feel what you feel. So, I asked the RPS hivemind what their gaming happy places…

The Vatican’s new Minecraft server is totally on-brand for Jesuits

There is an equal and opposite to the internet's Rule 34 which says that if you can imagine it, someone has made it in Minecraft. Players have built castles, Legend of Zelda maps, Westeros, and plenty of very grand cathedrals. Now one of the original cathedral creators is putting its mark on Minecraft: the Catholic church.

Games like Minecraft – 16 best games like Minecraft from the past ten years

There have been a great many games like Minecraft over the past decade. Which is to be expected, because who wouldn't want to capitalise on the runaway mainstream success of the decade, and the best-selling video game of all time? There are many things that are very special about Minecraft, and remain more or less unmatched even ten years later; but we've done our very…

Minecraft’s honey can be used to build flying machines

Minecraft's long overdue recognition of bees just became a bit more significant to the practical minded player. With the new 19w41A snapshot patch, the honey they produce can be agglomerated into usable blocks, whose unusual properties have been a boon for in-game builders, engineers, and even athletes. The internet had already recognised the importance of bees, but with the possibilities honey blocks offer, Minecraft players…

Minecraft Dungeons opens beta signups and introduces its plot

What ever could cause the gentle builders and farmers of Minecraft to beat their ploughshares into swords and go on a murderous quest? Apparently Minecraft Dungeons does have a story to explain this, according to the game's opening cinematic, as shown during MineCon over the weekend. Perhaps more relevantly to people who wanna murder mobs with their pals and yoink loot, Mojang have also opened…

Minecraft Nether Update to overhaul hell with new biomes and pigpeeps

The next big Minecraft update will accomodate players who wish to abandon our blessed world and fully live in the Nether hell dimension, developers Mojang announced over the weekend. The Nether will be expanded with different biomes, including a guts-red forest and blue valleys of fossils, and new lifeforms will move in to support your accursed lifestyle. Who wouldn't want to feast upon hellhogs? Or…

Over 112 million dirt enthusiasts are playing Minecraft every month

For whatever reason, Minecraft had a bit of a moment this summer. We got on board ourselves, with Nate setting up a pleasant little RPS server last month. It had been a hot minute since I'd last dived into Minecraft, but we had a proper great time: I helped a hermit rescue dogs from the underworld. Nate insisted I build a colossal airship off some…

Minecraft command list [1.14] – server commands

People have been tinkering with Minecraft commands from the moment they were able to early on in Minecraft's alpha. Since then there have been some incredible feats possible in Minecraft, like creating custom game modes that use Minecraft the template. Without commands, popular game types including "Hunger Games" would likely not exist. Even if your ambitions are more humble, we've put together this collection of…

Hounded Out: The adventures of a Minecraft hermit, finale

Previously on Hounded Out: I have brought food, and have made peace with the townies. But after spending the night in the cursed place, my precious dog, Goat, has been taken to Hell. I'd never been to Hell. It seems obvious, right? I never go to hell because of course I don't. Why would I want to? Spare me your "endgame" nonsense. My endgame is…

The buzz about town is that Minecraft just added bees

We no longer have bees in the real-world, the last one having left to fly to its home planet of HV-1 last Tuesday, so Minecraft has memorialised our buzzy buds by adding them as a new mob. The fuzzy little dancers are a neutral mob who’ll happily fill your game with honey for you to enjoy, and have just set up a hive in the…

Hounded Out: The adventures of a Minecraft hermit, part three

Previously on Hounded Out: My dogs and I narrowly survive a heroic rescue of the townies in their sinister underground excavation. Our generosity rebuffed, we head North, seeking peace in the wilderness. Travelling with three easily distracted dogs makes it difficult to get lost, as you retread your path every few minutes to retrieve them. This has probably saved me from getting lost for months,…

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…
