Minecraft's Nether Update is one of the most positively received updates for the game as it brought about sweeping changes to the game meta and added a bunch of new content to the game.

Minecraft players were treated to the update towards the start of the year, and players who had been away from Minecraft at the time might have missed out on all the new changes.

These patch notes will help players who have been away from Minecraft for a while to get up to speed in the game. Minecraft's Nether included new mobs, as well as Netherite, a powerful new material that makes Diamond look like cobblestone.
