Minecraft: Confirmed new features

We saw some interesting features with the introduction of the Minecraft 1.19 update, such as the Allay, Mangrove Swamps with frogs, and the Deep Dark with the Warden protecting the Ancient City. Although the Minecraft 1.20 update is still months away, we already have some official information and some trustworthy forecasts according to Minecraft Live 2022.

New Skins

Minecraft has added 7 new default character skins, bringing natural diversity and balance to the game. These skins give players varying skin tones and hair colours, but they all have the same blocky features (it’s a block game). They will be included not just in the future update, but also in the upcoming official videos and promos.


Bamboo wood

Minecraft is introducing a new family of wood that is coming with its own planks, blocks, and other items. They are a part of the developers’ efforts to increase the game’s diversity of representation. Additionally, the bamboo wood can be used to create ornamental bamboo mosaic blocks, which will add even more uniqueness to this wood set. Buildings or rafts for cruising bodies of water can be made with this material.

Interactive Book shelf

In Minecraft, bookshelves are now actually helpful. You can put both common and magical books in carved bookcases after making them. They also engage with the Redstone game elements. Redstone signals are sent to nearby blocks by a bookshelf if the same book is interacted with twice. These signals can be exploited to create covert doors.

New Mob: Camel

Camels are entering the game through Minecraft. They will naturally only spawn in arid biomes, as one might expect. They are one of the biggest mobs in the game, and riding it at night will keep you safe from hostile mobs. Two players can ride a camel simultaneously once it has been trained. In difficult terrain, camels move significantly more slowly than horses do.
