I think there will be more hostile mobs, and new biomes!
TimeBlows, I looked behind me, you're not in that location. O_O But what I think will happen (Hopefully) is an opposite of nether? No, I am not saying the Ether mod, but isn't it weird how we enter the hell lands but no good lands? That's just one of my thoughts. Perhaps add more use to Emeralds? Or maybe have more textures of mobs instead of the same texture every time? (Cows are not ALWAYS brown and white, nor are pigs solid pink) I know sheep are already like that, but why not the rest of the mobs?
Here's my question: Where's the magic in this game? Hear me out;
There's enchanting, brewing, sword fighting, and archery. Even books, for goodness sake. Minecraft would look really cool with some particle effects, no question in that. How about cool books that would have spells in them? Or maybe put a Skyrim-spin on things and have them accessible at specific places in the world, within X amount of blocks from spawn? Something that would be fair to all players on multiplayer servers. Or maybe not?
I could go on, but these are only some crazy ideas flowing from my brain as I type this.
But honestly, Minecraft is not the game it used to be. For better or for worse, is up to opinion. I'd like to see a real adventure update. Pets, magic, more ENGAGING mobs, even another dimension! Sure it's a lot of work, but it's more exploring, which is a main aspect of what captured our attentions and made us fall in love with surviving, filling us with pride when we made it through the night.
While Minecraft is a more family friendly game, I get it, it's totally cool. It's crazy what the human mind can come up with. Sporadic thoughts forever.
I appreciate all that Mojang has done for us. Microsoft owns the rights to Minecraft now, and I and so many others of us can only hope that maybe Microsoft can care and give us a fresh and new spin on this wonderful franchise.
I want to see more dimensions, way more ores and new structures. Maybe stuff like gliders to make exploration funner. I'd also like to see the Nether actually have a purpose because at the moment it's pointless going there.
Sadly, this is what I think will happen.
I wouldn't exactly call going to the Nether pointless. Quartz blocks look great so they are useful for building. Glowstone is also nice and a bit easier to get than Sea Lanterns. Nether Wart is essential for brewing potions which is fun, and you also need to get a Blaze Rod for the Brewing Stand. You also have to collect Wither Skulls in the Nether if you want to make a beacon because you'll have to make and kill a Wither to get the Nether Star. Netherrack is also useful for decoration if you want to have a fire always burning. Plus there's gold farms.
