News | Camels are coming to Minecraft in update 1.20

Mojang has revealed what is coming to Minecraft with the upcoming 1.20 update,  camels are among them.

At the recent 2022 Minecraft Live event, Mojang revealed what we can expect for Update 1.20. One of those parts was the camel. They also revealed that the update should be released in the spring of 2023. A snapshot of the update is already available before; even within a few days.

This year it was again possible for the community to vote for the next animal to be added to Minecraft during the Mobvote. The winner of this has been announced, and it’s the Sniffer. This one took on the tuff golem and the rascal. In total, more than 3.5 million votes were cast.

Mojang hasn’t come up with a name for update 1.20 yet. Normally they do, but this time they want to shape the update together with the community and eventually give it a name.

Furthermore, Mojang has revealed seven new skins that come standard in the game as base skins. They did this to give the player more options in terms of customization without having to go straight to the internet to get a skin.

September marks the two-year anniversary of Borderlands 3. Gearbox celebrates this with various in-game events.

The first event, called Loot the Universe, started yesterday and will run through September 9. Each week, a planet within the game is modified so that better (Legendary) loot can be found. This week it’s Pandora. Below is the complete schedule:

  • August 12-18: Pandora
  • August 19 to 26: Promethea
  • August 27 to September 2: Eden-6
  • September 2 to 8: Nekrotafey

From 9 September, two more events will take place simultaneously. The first is Mayhem Made Mild, with players only encountering Easy modifiers in Mayhem mode. The second is Show Me the Eridium, where many more Eridium will appear as loot and Eridium items can be purchased at a discount.

On the day of the two-year anniversary, September 13,  more in-game celebrations are to follow, but Gearbox is keeping that a surprise for now.
