Aside from these highlights, you can look forward to new blocks and items too, which should please those among us (myself) who tend to stick to creative. The soundtrack is composed by Lena Raine of Celeste, and you can listen to it right now, right here.

Of course, you might have dipped into the Nether update already via last snapshot that went live in February. There's a nice spread of new enemies to contend with and challenges to overcome, including the Hoglins: they look like hogs, basically, and they want to kill you, of course.

A broad overview of the Nether update is here.
