The Nether Wastes is a location in the Minecraft Dungeons DLC Flames of the Nether.


INFINITE WASTELAND – Any journey through the Nether begins in the Nether Wastes. The endless sprawl is scattered with strange relics that break up the bleak landscape, jutting forth from somewhere beneath the surface.

In-game story


A harsh welcome awaits you in the Nether Wastes. Only ruins and relics keep you company as you race to escape the seemingly endless sprawl. You’ll need to keep your wits about you if you want to survive the wastes.
