During the Minecraft Monthly news show, Mojang and Microsoft revealed the official name and more details for the Minecraft ($6.99) 1.20 update. Minecraft 1.20 is now called the Trails and Tales update. If you’ve not kept up with the main game recently, we finally had the big ‘Wild update’ arrive alongside keyboard and mouse support on iOS before. The Minecraft Trails and Tales update arrives later this year with a focus on self-expression, creativity, and intrinsic motivation. The team wants this update to allow players to tell more Minecraft stories and share them. Watch the full Minecraft 1.20 Trails and Tales update reveal in the Minecraft Monthly news show below:
If you’ve not played Minecraft for a while, now is a great time to jump in. I’m curious to see how the main Minecraft game evolves this year leading up to the Trails and Tales update. Hopefully this year also sees mobile get Minecraft Dungeons with cross play, but I still will not hold my breath for it. Minecraft keeps improving, and it is good to see a lot planned for 2023 already. We will likely get the release date soon if it is arriving before June, or Microsoft will likely announce it during its potential June showcase. Have you played Minecraft recently on mobile on any other platform and what do you think of the upcoming PC and console game Minecraft Legends?
