Minecraft Herobrine world seed discovered: How to join the creepy world

The seed for the world in which Minecraft's creepy Herobrine myth began 10 years ago has now been found.

In July 2020 the seed for Minecraft's title screen world was finally found, followed by the seed for Minecraft's famous pack.png world in September. Now, another iconic secret has been found in the Herobrine seed world, and in this article, we will tell you how to join it.

Who is Minecraft's Herobrine?

First of all, the creepy character Herobrine is Minecraft folklore. He is a myth first made the rounds on Creepypasta back in 2010.

Herobrine became somewhat of Minecraft's version of Slenderman, with some players creating hoax images claiming to have spotted him.

For those who are unaware, Herobrine looks like the default player skin, with ghost-white eyes, and exhibiting odd behaviour like digging 2x2 holes. It was also rumoured that Herobrine was a tribute to Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson's deceased brother.

Again, Herobrine isn't real. There was never a character like this in Minecraft, as explained by a moderator on Reddit: "Note that Herobrine is not real and has never been, this is just the seed used for the original creepypasta image."

However, the seed world in which the Herobrine hoax started is, in fact, real.
