Minecraft The Wild Update release date, details
Mojang Studios has announced that the next big update for Minecraft – known as The Wild Update – is set to arrive early next month. Fans can expect it on June 7, 2022.
The update will include new biomes, mobs, and blocks. You can find more information below.
The Overworld is getting two new biomes – Deep Dark and Mangrove. Deep darkness lies far below the surface. To get there, find the base of a cave and start digging (not straight). Keep your eyes but above all your ears open. One of the many remarkable things about this biome is its silence. That is, until you trigger a screamer. Don’t worry, the name is misleading! If you trigger it, you can expect sweet nothings to be whispered in your ears. Dear reader, I’m lying again! If you trigger a screamer, you have until the fourth scream to get out of there, unless you want to come face to face with the only mob that dwells in deep darkness. But before you go, don’t forget to use the touch of silk to extract some of the other forms of sculk blocks only found in this very spooky biome.
If horror isn’t your cup of tea, why not retreat to the safety of the mangroves? Unless you hate trees with big roots. In that case, you might want to move on because these swamps are full of just that, namely mangroves. As majestic as they are beautiful, they are not only decorative but also bring a new type of wood to build with the new mud block! You can craft this natural resource using two of my favorite things: earth and water. Speaking of water, if you want to venture on a big body of water, you can board a boat with a chest! Fill it with everything your expedition needs, whether it’s adventure gear, exploration supplies, or whatever cakes you can pack.
This update also brings three new monsters! Are you ready to meet the Guardian? I’m not! But for those who want a challenge like they’ve never seen before, you’ll find this creature in the pitch black. Stealth is the key to getting out of there in one piece, so stay stealthy!
Another crowd that joins us are those who arrive by special invitation! The ally was voted into the game during last year’s Minecraft Live. This blue beauty is ready to fly through the game, help you collect items and dance to the beat of a notepad!
The third monster is the one that many of us have been waiting for a long time: the frog! Not only is he adorable, but he creates a beautiful frog block if he attacks magma cubes. It’s impressive on so many levels. But if you want to give your frog something safer, you can feed it tiny slimes!
But do you know what the best part of the frog is? It’s actually two monsters! What? Math has never been my forte. But in case you need to check my work, let me explain. The frog hops in our hearts, it is one. Well, there are three types, but let’s not dwell on that. But before a frog is a frog, it’s a baby frog, which is actually a tadpole, making them the only mob that has a different baby version of themselves. Technically, before it was a tadpole, it was a frog spawn. So is it technically three mobs? Hmmm. Are you still following? Nope? It is very good. The thing is, frogs are awesome and tadpoles are awesome too!
All Switch players will be able to download The Wild Update for Minecraft at no additional cost starting June 7.
