SkyBlock 1.0 is an upcoming major update to SkyBlock. It is set to fully release in 2022, however it may be delayed to 2023. Certain parts of 1.0 will be released along the way to the full release.[1][2] SkyBlock will leave the Prototype Lobby once 1.0 is fully released.

The update will contain a large amount of content, such as new islands and features. In addition, many existing areas of the game will receive a revamp and rebalance using the experience with those areas so far.

The development of 1.0 is assisted by design threads posted on the Hypixel Forums. In each design thread, an early design draft for changes to a certain area is shown, and the community can give feedback through a linked survey or in the thread itself. Nothing within the design threads is final; all mentioned additions and changes are subject to large changes.

    • Special Minions (Unlocked through Skyblock Levels and don't generate resources but can facilitate gameplay or to optimize your setup)
