Minecraft News

Hello everyone, and welcome to another great week of news from your boy Dave. Mojang brings forth yet another snapshot in the form of snapshot 21w19a. The snapshot has focused on mainly technical changes.

21w19a

Candles, Bundles, and Sculk Sensors are now accessible, but only by commands. This is due to the quality not being at the level they find acceptable. Anvil names have been extended from 35 characters to 50. Geodes are significantly rarer. Minecraft’s Java version has been updated to Java 16. Some block tags have been added and the /item command syntax has been changed. This on top of dozens of bugs being fixed concludes the snapshot.

Minecraft Dungeons News

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve covered anything in regards to Minecraft Dungeons. In place of the Community Gulp, let’s catch up on all the changes and additions being made to the spin-off game.

For DLC, the latest upcoming content to Minecraft Dungeons is called Hidden Depths! Little is known about the update, but just like the other worlds added, it will most likely include new underwater-based levels, weapons, armor, and items. You can expect some free content, but be sure to snag the Season Pass if you’d like to play on the new levels for yourself.

minecraft dungeons anniversary event

In free news, Minecraft Dungeons turns one year old very soon! Starting on May 26th and running until June 8th, there will be an Anniversary Event that includes seasonal trials that will allow you to collect special in-game rewards. Minecraft’s Kelsey Howard goes on about how there is an event-exclusive cape that’s “just the icing on top!” This is sure to be something that brings back some of the players who may have initially stopped playing after finishing the game.

Conclusion

That’s this week done and dealt! Not much has happened, but enough to still justify my existence. Mojang released a more technical snapshot than content-focused, but it still improves the game so that’s fine by me. The Apex team was really attentive today, and I was able to get a lot of them to pitch in with their report. I decided to replace the Community Gulp with some news on Minecraft Dungeons for today, as it has been a while since we covered it. And to think it has already been a year since its release! In any case, I wish you all the best! Have a great day!
