From building dream creations and exploring endless worlds to entering alternate dimensions such as the Nether and The End, Minecraft offers players an endless list of things to do, making it one of the most popular sandbox video games.
Sometimes, though, it can be refreshing to get a new spin on this familiar world, especially after spending hundreds of hours in vanilla Minecraft. That's where mods can come into play.
Mods such as The Legend of Herobrine can breathe new life into the game and offer a completely new experience. This mod in particular showcases the horror that Herobrine brings to the game.
Here is everything that players need to know about The Legend of Herobrine.
What is The Legend of Herobrine mod in Minecraft?
Herobrine is a character that has a lot of lore in the Minecraft universe. A frightening character, he is rumored to be Notch's dead brother (which is not true as Notch didn't have a brother). He is shown as having the standard Steve skin, with completely white eyes, and is normally portrayed as horrifying and corrupt to the game.
While there is no trace of Herobrine in the game's source code (even though there are countless stories about it online), players can live through the horror of Herobrine by installing and running The Legend of Herobrine in their game.
What does The Legend of Herobrine modpack do?
This mod takes the vanilla Minecraft experience and reimagines it as if all the legends about Herobrine being in Minecraft were true. What this means for players is that they are able to summon Herobrine to their world, and will then be relentlessly pursued by him.
In this mod, Herobrine takes on many different forms to chase a player, including a Magical form that can create illusions of himself, a form that watches them from a distance, and even one that can break blocks to get to them, no matter where they are.
In addition to having all the horrors of Herobrine, there are brand new blocks and items, and even a new biome added to the game with this mod - as well as different buildings such as trapped houses and survivor settlements.
Even the mobs are corrupted in this scary modpack
As players make their way across this strange and terrifying world, they will notice statues dedicated to Herobrine, as well as random monuments and various other buildings that can scare them and catch them off guard.
Mobs can also be affected by Herobrine, and even those that are generally passive to the player can still be attacked. Those looking for a fun but somewhat thrilling mod will enjoy The Legend of Herobrine.
