Minecraft 1.19, better known as The Wild Update is set to transform Minecraft with a host of new additions. Introducing The Warden, enhanced swamp biomes, the Deep Dark, Deep Dark Cities, Mangrove Trees and Forests, Mud, and more, this is a huge update to the game.
But when does Minecraft 1.19 release? At the moment there’s no set date, but developer Mojang has confirmed it will be in 2022. Additionally, they’ve stated that it will likely be the first half of the year, which means that hopefully it will be released by June 2022.
It’s a long time to wait, but there’s so much it is understandable that Mojang is taking its time. The new blocks including Mud, Mud Bricks, and the various Skulk blocks will have some incredibly interesting uses. For instance, since Skulk can store XP, there’s the opportunity to make some truly huge XP farms.
But beyond just blocks, the update is set to add the aforementioned Warden, Frogs, Fireflies, and the Minecraft Mob Vote Winner, The Allay. The Allay picks up dropped items in loaded chunks and brings them to note blocks. This is an interesting mob because it has the potential to be used in a lot of interesting contraptions, such as item sorters.
So while the release seems like a long way away, it’s definitely worth the wait, due to all the interesting new features that will be added!
