Minecraft 1.20 : toutes les nouveautés de la mise à jour annoncées au Minecraft Live 2022

Minecraft 1.20: all the new features of the update announced at Minecraft Live 2022 – Minecraft Online Free

Minecraft Live 2022 has just ended, and it brings a lot of new features for Minecraft update 1.20: camels, bamboo blocks, new interactive libraries and hanging signs.

Mojang has announced a release window for Minecraft 1.20: Spring 2023. Mojang also announced that the first playable features and snapshots of the update will be available “within days.”

Unlike previous big updates, Mojang hasn’t given version 1.20 a name yet, and instead hopes to shape and characterize it through conversations with the community. This translates into the addition of 7 new default skins in addition to Steve and Alex. Mojang hopes this will allow players to feel represented in-game without having to immediately turn to custom options.

Video recap of the new features of Minecraft 1.20

bamboo block

Bamboo Wood is coming, with all blocks/crafting items available like all other wood sets currently in the game, including a block unique to this set called the Bamboo Mosaic Block.

  • Bamboo can be used to craft things like wood, with unique designs for boards, stairs, doors, fences, and hatches.
  • There is also a unique bamboo mosaic block, which has a more decorative design.

A bamboo raft was also featured, as a variation of the boats currently available.

  • Instead of a bamboo boat, players will be able to craft a raft with a unique, flat design.
  • The raft can still accommodate up to two players, as well as chests.

Carved bookcase

Minecraft version 1.20 features a new kind of library, more refined and fully functional.

  • The carved shelves can store up to 6 books of any type.
  • Players dynamically add and remove books from the library, there is no in-game menu.
  • Sculpted shelves support interactions with redstone, with comparators able to tell when a book is added or removed from the shelf.
  • Thanks to the redstone, players will be able to create secret passages in the libraries.
  • The normal library remains in the game.

Hanging sign

The classic sign that has been helping players label and navigate Minecraft for years finally has an alternative form: hanging signs.

  • Hanging signs are made from wood and chains.
  • Hanging signs come in several varieties, including two chains when hung from the underside of blocks, a single chain ending in a “V” shape when hung from a narrow block like a fence, and a post with two chains when hanging from the corner of a block.
  • Players can change the color of hanging signs by using different varieties of wood to craft them.
  • Hanging signs are otherwise identical to regular signs when it comes to text input.
  • It is possible to stack the hanging signs

New default skins

Separate from the 1.20 update itself, but related by theme, Minecraft’s infamous default characters Steve and Alex are about to make some new friends. For the first time in years, players will be able to choose from new default skins. See how to change Minecraft skin.

  • The seven skins added are Makene, Efe, Noor, Kai, Ari, Sunny, and Zuri.
  • Each character is visually unique, with a diverse range of appearances, including darker skin tones and even prosthetics.
  • The new characters will arrive in Minecraft in late November or early December 2022, in a separate update.

  • Archeology or Birch Forest Improvements.
  • The studio has confirmed that no biome updates are planned for version 1.20.
  • Fireflies are still a possibility and are being discussed by Mojang Studios, but not for 1.20.
