As of the Minecraft 1.17 update, blocks could only be placed in Minecraft between Y 0 and Y 256. With the release of 1.18 on Nov. 30, 2021, players can now build between Y -64 and Y 320, which expands the vertical limit by 128 blocks total. With this new change, we can fully expect to see some more intense roller coasters and castle builds in Minecraft, and maybe even some record-breaking diving board heights!

That's all there is to know about the new height limit for Minecraft 1.18! Which do you prefer: a build high in the sky where you can watch over everything below, or a build deep underground where you'll find plenty of riches and ore?
