Anyone who has played Minecraft for more than a week or so has probably learned the majority of the game. In vanilla Minecraft, you’ve got three dimensions to explore – the standard world everyone sees, and then the Nether and the End, which only more dedicated players will get to visit. Many popular mods, like AbyssalCraft, focus on adding new dimensions to Minecraft and giving players new places to explore and enjoy. While you have what is essentially hell along with a void dimension, you still don’t have an underworld, per se. That is remedied by this mod, which allows players to go to the abyss.
The AbyssalCraft mod presents a unique opportunity to explore the land of the dead – while remaining alive. Anyone who has tried the Dark Souls or Demon Souls games probably has a good understanding of how this concept works. You are in fact dead, but you still get to keep controlling your character. Actually, the mod features a total of three new dimensions if you count all three layers as their own, unique dimensions. Players will begin on the Abyssal Wasteland and, working their way downward, travel through the Dreadlands on their way to Omothol, the final location on this mod.
The changes caused by the AbyssalCraft mod extend beyond adding a few new dimensions, though. Even on the overworld, that’s the normal Minecraft world, you’ll find several new biomes which are merely shadows of what you’ll really find if you keep digging deeper into the content of this mod. A handful of new undead and demonic mobs along with seven new types of stone and a horde of new gear and tools to craft make this mod a well-rounded one, with lots of new content all around. AbyssalCraft is a Minecraft mod that lets players literally go to hell.
