Minecraft Tricky Trials Now Available for Download!

Today, Minecraft released its latest update, Tricky Trials, on all platforms. Players can experience surprising new challenges with the replayable trial chambers, perfect for multiplayer and solo adventures and ripe with valuable loot.

However, the trial chambers aren’t the only new features added in Tricky Trials. Here’s a full look at the new additions in Tricky Trials:

  • Redstone-enabled auto-crafting with the crafter
  • Two new mobs: the bogged, a new skeleton variant that shoots poison arrows, and the breeze, a nimble and mischievous foe that drops the wind charge and breeze rod when defeated
  • A new weapon: the mace, which has three new unique enchantments in breach, density and wind burst, and a special smash attack that knocks back enemies
  • Five new decorative copper blocks: chiseled copper, copper grate, copper door, copper trapdoor and copper bulb
  • Thirteen new decorative tuff variant blocks: tuff stairs, tuff slab, tuff wall, chiseled tuff, polished tuff, polished tuff stairs, polished tuff slab, polished tuff wall
  • Four new status effects and potions (which can also be applied to tipped arrows): infestation, oozing, weaving and wind charging
  • Two new banner patterns (flow and guster), three new pottery sherds (flow, guster and scrape) and two new armor trims (bolt and flow)
  • Twenty new paintings: including five from in-house artist Sarah Boeving and fifteen from Kristoffer Zetterstrand, the artist behind the original set of Minecraft paintings
  • Three new music discs and nine new ambient tracks, which are also available to play on your preferred music streaming platform
  • And of course, the full trial chamber feature set inclusive of the vault, trial spawners, ominous trials – a more challenging version of the trial chambers, trial key, the heavy core, ominous bottles and the trial explorer map

Additionally, Mojang has begun testing Minecraft on PlayStation 5, paving the way for a native PS5 version to be released later this year. This PS5 version of the game is currently in experimental mode so the team can continue to make improvements and listen to community feedback over the next few months. Minecraft is also optimized for Xbox Series X|S consoles, where the game runs at up to 4K and 60FPS as of last December. These updates to optimization are a continuation of Minecraft’s efforts to ensure a great experience on consoles while paving the way for future game enhancements.
