The new Minecraft update is so close I can almost taste it!

Joseph – Joseph claimed the first Ender Dragon kill on our Minecraft server! Nice job, Joseph!

Dave – I’ve been super sick sleeping in bed for multiple days on end. I still feel kinda terrible, but we’re getting there!

Dalton – Dalton has been playing tons of Tears of the Kingdom and is enjoying it to the fullest. Lowkey, this game looks like it’ll win GOTY easily.


ARK is the quintessential dino-infested survival game that we have all grown to know and love, but unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. The age of twilight looms over this game’s future as ARK 2 sets in, and so ARK is receiving its last content update forever.

This is the final update that ARK will ever receive. Arriving in June for ARK’s 8th Anniversary, the final content update will include the fan voted Rhyniognatha! The Rhyniognatha is a super-sized creature with a set of unique abilities. From producing a quick-hardening resin to being capable of carrying large objects around your base, these versatile creatures provide an unparalleled enhancement to your tribe’s defenses.


That’s the week! The Minecraft community is abuzz with excitement as the highly anticipated 1.20 update, Trails and Tales, is set to release on June 7th. With a plethora of new features, including hanging signs, chiseled bookshelves, armor trimming, and the introduction of camels, this update promises to be one of the best yet. Additionally, the ARK community faces a bittersweet moment as the game receives its final content update in June, marking the end of an era. The introduction of the fan-voted Rhyniognatha brings a unique and versatile creature to the game, enhancing tribe defenses and providing a memorable farewell to the ARK franchise. Exciting times lie ahead for both Minecraft and ARK players, as they embark on new adventures and create lasting memories in these beloved games.
