DIY is short for Do It Yourself, and in New Horizons it's a new feature that allows you to create tools and furniture yourself by using materials.
You can also change the color of your furniture through DIY. It looks to be a feature close to the one offered at Re-Tail in New Leaf.
On your island, you can collect the materials needed for DIY, such as branches, wood and stones. Wood can be found by cutting trees, and stone can be found from hitting rocks.
Once you have collected the materials, you can craft things at the DIY workbench. The materials will be used up when you craft something, but you can make material gathering easier and quicker by crafting tools to help you.
With New Horizons, it has become possible to place furniture outside your house as well. Furniture that does not really fit indoors, such as bonfires, can now be placed outdoors without feeling out of place.
Before New Horizons, you were unable to actually collect weeds. They were just pulled out of the ground and disappeared. However, now you can not only collect them, you can sell them too!
The Nook Mileage Program is a system where you can get special points called
Miles by completing set tasks. The Miles you collect can be exchanged for special items and recipes, so make sure to do a lot of bug catching, fishing and DIY!
In New Horizons, you can make flower garlands by collecting the flowers you've grown. Another newly added feature is that when you pick flowers, the stems remain. Maybe the petals will grow back with time?
You can use a vaulting pole to easily cross rivers. Until now, the only way to get across rivers was by bridges. However, the vaulting pole allows you to cross rivers wherever you want, so this new item means you don't have to worry as much about where to place your home.
In New Horizons, you can dig up trees after eating things like apples to boost you.
The trees you have dug up can be planted anywhere you want. Rearranging is going to be super easy!
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, up to 4 players can play on the same Switch at the same time. Since you can group up this way, gathering materials and such will get a lot easier!
How to Play with Friends (Multiplayer)
Using online play, players can play up to 8 players together. In the previous games 4 players was the limit, so now you can have double the amount of people.

Once you've developed your island to a certain extent, you'll be granted the Island Designer permit, allowing you to change the island even more. In the official videos, things like pathways and rivers being made and changed have been showcased.
First you will be asked to choose between the Nothern and Southern Hemispere. The seasons are reversed for the Nothern and Southern Hemispheres, so this choice will probably change the gameplay quite a lot!
Which Hemisphere Should You Choose?
You can now freely choose where to place your house (or rather, tent) when you first start out on the island. This no doubt gives a lot more freedom than the 3DS games.
It's also possible to choose where the resident animals will live, making it even easier to create your ideal island layout!
In New Horizons, it has become possible to move buildings. This is super helpful if you placed a building in the wrong spot at first, or decide to change the layout of your island.
If you get lost or stuck, you can now use your NookPhone to escape. The Rescue Service operator sounds suspiciously like Mr. Resetti!
Your house has a built in storage space. Once you've obtained an item, you can freely put it in your storage and take it back out.
It's possible to bring Custom Designs made in previous games to New Horizons. Why not make some new designs while waiting for New Horizons to release and import them after?
You can use your real smart phone to chat in-game in Animal Crossing: New Horizons by connecting your user to your phone through the NookLink feature.
For the first time in the game series, free updates are introduced. Seasonal events will be added to the game this way.
