This year’s Minecraft Live show brought along a bevvy of announcements, including Minecraft‘s next major The Wild Update coming in 2022.
New features in the update include mud and mangrove swamps, alongside different types of frogs and tadpoles. The Wild Update will also include the Deep Dark biome and the Warden mob. These were originally intended to be included the second part of this year’s Caves and Cliffs update, but have been delayed into this one.
The rest of Cliffs & Caves Part II will still be coming later this year, however. The update includes increasing the upper and lower limits of the map, adding new caves and mountains. While a specific date wasn’t given during the broadcast, Mojang teased it should be ready in the next month or two.
These updates weren’t the only big major Minecraft announcement, however. Mojang also announced the Java version will head to Xbox Game Pass for PC next month. Minecraft: The PC Bundle will include both the Java and existing Bedrock editions in a new unified launcher. It’ll be available for subscribers to the service from November 2.
Finally, the results of this year’s Mob Vote are in, and the Allay was the winner. This new mob collects matching items for you, if you hand it something, and can be summoned via note blocks. The Allay will be added to the game in a future update. You can check out videos for Minecraft‘s The Wild Update and the Minecraft PC Bundle for Xbox Game Pass for PC down below.
