Ever since Minecraft’s 1.16 Nether update, players have been hoping that Mojang would also focus more on the End dimension. This has led to many fans speculating about what the final update will bring and what they would like to see from it if confirmed. Mojang did offer an “Ender Update” in 2016, but it wasn’t what fans were hoping for.
This has led to speculation that future updates will focus on the ending, and with update 1.21 likely to debut in June 2024, players are once again discussing what they would like to see in the ending update. Opinions vary, but some of the gameplay additions have been agreed upon, and it doesn’t hurt to check them out.

Minecraft Players’ Top 5 Requests for Ending Updates
5) New redstone compatible blocks
While the introduction of Sculk blocks adds new ways to craft redstone machines in Minecraft Wireless, many players have been clamoring for more features. Many fans believe that since Endermen can teleport and the apocalypse itself is an otherworldly environment, Mojang could introduce new blocks into the dimension that provide wireless redstone capabilities.
Apparently, countless tech mods have introduced wireless redstone functionality. Still, having more options in the original game without mods would be a welcome addition, as snorkeling blocks have their limitations.
4) Final ore and new crafting recipe
For some reason, Minecraft’s End dimension lacks ores to mine. According to many players, this seems like a missed opportunity, especially considering that “Endgame” is supposed to be the final game dimension. While the loot and blocks there are certainly useful, fans are calling for new items that can be crafted into powerful items and gear.
While goodies like shulker boxes and elytra are nice, they don’t always feel like appropriate rewards for defeating the ender dragon and looting end cities/ships. Adding ores to craft powerful apocalyptic-themed weapons, armor, and gadgets could give players a lot of future satisfaction.
3) New structure
While it’s certainly fun to explore end cities/ships in Minecraft, the end has a lot of unused space. While Mojang doesn’t want to fill this dimension’s many islands with buildings, adding more islands certainly wouldn’t hurt. These buildings can have their own unique architecture, loot tables, and even new creatures to defend them (if possible).
The emptiness of The End is certainly part of its charm in part. Still, there’s plenty of room to comfortably accommodate new game structures without overcrowding the dimensions.
2) New mobs
There are no mobs in the end in Minecraft other than endermen, shulkers, and ender dragons. Many modders have solved this problem by creating new otherworldly creatures of their own, and even Mojang and Double Eleven developed new apocalyptic creatures for the Echoing Void DLC in the Dungeons spin-off game. Simply put, there’s plenty of room for more entities to reach the End.
Not only would this make The End feel more inhabited, but it could also bring more danger to the dimension. Mobs may even drop new materials that can be crafted into blocks/items/tools, giving more incentive to create farms in the end.
1) New biomes
Technically, End in Minecraft currently does have multiple biomes, but they are very similar to each other and don’t contain much biodiversity. On top of that, players are asking Mojang to introduce new in-game biomes for Doom, offering new blocks, flora, fauna, and even climate, thus expanding on the Void-like initial presentation.
Since it’s themed around a relatively empty asteroid-like dimension, it remains to be seen whether Mojang is willing to introduce a new end biome, but fans are still clamoring for one. If the minds in the Minecraft modding community can develop a biome mod for the apocalypse that sticks to its central themes, surely Mojang can find a way to do it.
