A variety of new characters are coming to Minecraft.
Minecraft’s next big update, which will add Pillagers and over 10 new Villagers, is coming in 2019, Mojang announced today during Minecon Earth 2018.
Appropriately titled Village and Pillage, the update introduces Pillagers, an unfriendly group of characters equipped with dangerous Beasts. Players will have the ability to defend villages from Pillager attacks.
The update will also bring eleven new Villagers to the world of Minecraft, including the Librarian, Butcher, Cleric Cartographer, Leatherworker, Fletcher, Shepherd, Farmer, Fisher, Armorer, Toolsmith, and Weaponsmith. Each new Villager will have unique design variations depending on which biome they’re found in.
Ahead of the big Village and Pillage update, Mojang is making two adorable additions to Minecraft with the introduction of cats and pandas. The new animals will be released “very soon.” Get your first look at one of the new creatures in the video above, which features the cutest sneezing baby Minecraft panda you’ll ever see.
During today’s stream, Mojang also announced Minecraft: Dungeons, a brand new Minecraft game coming to PC in 2019.
