Even though Minecraft is a decade old, Microsoft is committed to releasing new content for it on a regular basis. These steady updates keep players engaged, and that’s a huge part of why such a simple game has maintained its popularity for a decade. The latest update just hit today, and Microsoft is advertising it as the biggest update to villages yet.
The Village & Pillage update brings “new villages across different biomes, with job sites, buildings, designs, and construction opportunities. Earn the villagers’ trust and explore a refined trading system, with brand new ways to exchange items.” But it’s not all fun and games! There’s also danger in the form of Pillager Outposts. These are heavily armed enemy fortresses, and some Pillagers will even roam the overworld looking for a fight.
