Minecraft’s modding community is one of the biggest in all of gaming. Mods consist of specially designed content that brings custom-made entities into the game. They’re often made by players and can consist of new items, mobs, biomes, dimensions, mechanics, and other modifications like shaders, resource packs, performance enhancements, and more.

Each mod brings something new to Minecraft and has compatibility with different programs like Forge, Fabric, etc.


Many mods focus on a specific theme and work to transform Minecraft into a game that resonates with that theme. Some change the game into a medieval world with features like dragons, castles, bridges, moats, and knights. This article dives into five mods that focus on the medieval experience for players.
