Minecraft Snapshot 20w27a
A Minecraft Java Snapshot
It's time for another snapshot cycle as we make our way towards 1.16.2! This snapshot introduces the Piglin Brutes, and you might have heard about them in a Bedrock beta already.
The Piglin Brutes will be the only feature addition of 1.16.2, the rest of these snapshots will be focused on fixing bugs.

- Unlike their cowardly and greedy counterparts, the Piglin Brutes cannot be distracted by gold and aren’t afraid of anything

- Piglin Brutes wield axes and don’t need any armor, because they’re just that tough
