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.
