So what has been added in the Minecraft 1.20.1 Update?
The Minecraft Trails & Tales update, version 1.20, is still fresh off the press, and players around the globe are diving headfirst into all the exciting changes it has brought to our beloved blocky world.
Finally making their grand entrance into the game are Camels. These interesting mobs come with a twist: they offer rides but won’t pledge their loyalty to a single player. When not ferrying players around, they like to lay low—literally—and their towering height provides a safe haven from attacks while you’re perched on their back. And the cherry on top? They have room for two—perfect for a desert jaunt with a friend.
Say hello to the Sniffer, a much-anticipated addition to Minecraft’s lineup of unique mobs. With the arrival of the Sniffer, we also get our hands on Sniffer eggs and torchflower seeds. Thanks to its distinctive spawn mechanism and the prospect of unearthing useful seeds, this Mob Vote winner has already won over a legion of players.
The Cherry Grove biome is stealing hearts, too, with its enchanting cherry trees. Players can’t resist the allure of this biome, and cherry wood, the new resource on the block, is getting a lot of love.
Bamboo, meanwhile, has been given a nifty update, making it an even more versatile resource in the game. It can now be transformed into wooden planks, opening up the possibility to craft slabs, doors, stairs, and even boats. It’s safe to say that bamboo is definitely having a moment.
