Minecraft The Wild: This is how you can play the new big update
The long-awaited update 1.19 i.e. The Wild is coming soon in 2022 and will drastically change Minecraft once again.
It should give a completely new identity to biomes such as the birch forest or the swamps, but also introduce a new biome called The Deep Dark and of course many new enemies, animals and materials. The good news is you can play some of them right now!
This is how you can play The Wild
Attention, the already officially available version is still a beta. So there isn’t all the content yet – but maybe one or the other bug. But intrepid adventurers can easily explore the new world:
- Snapshot only works in the Java version of Minecraft.
- Open your Minecraft launcher and select the Installations tab at the top. Check the development releases box on the right. This will prevent damage to your worlds.
- Your installations should now show the latest development version. Click Play to the right of the name, then the beta will download and then launch.
- Beta is a standalone version of Minecraft. You can upload your worlds, but your progress will not continue after beta.
Also, keep in mind that old Java accounts that you’re still logged into through Mojang accounts are blocked.
Changes to Minecraft The Wild Beta Version
Snapshot already contains a lot of content from the big The Wild update. There are one, but actually two new creatures, the frog and the tadpole. The second turns into a frog.
There are also loads of new mangrove wood blocks and you can explore the Deep Dark biome – but without the sinister Guardian. All the content of the snapshot can be found on the official website.
