Piglins and Hoglins

The Nether is now home to two new mobs: Piglins and Hoglins. Piglins are hostile creatures that can be found in the Crimson Forest and Bastion Remnants.

Striders and Bastions

Meet the Striders, peculiar creatures that can be ridden across lava lakes using a saddle and a warped fungus on a stick. These passive mobs are your new best friends when it comes to traversing the treacherous Nether terrain. Additionally, explore the new Bastion Remnants, fortresses inhabited by Piglins, filled with loot and danger.
