Minecraft players have begun 2022. They are now getting ready for "The Wild Update," the next major update to the game. But how big is this update relative to the last one?
Two parts of the "Caves and Cliffs" update, which included Minecraft's last major updates, 1.17 and 1.18 respectively, were released. This update made it possible to change the way terrain is created within worlds and introduced new biomes as well as mobs to populate them.
These updates also made it possible to access more content, which is why they were split into two parts.
The amount of content added to Minecraft's Caves & Cliffs updates is incredible compared with previous updates. The game's limit on build was raised, and the method by which many biomes generate content was modified to make it more varied, such as making mountain biomes more capable in generating huge peaks and spires.
There were several biomes, including lush caves and dropstone caves that were filled with copper and other ores, as well as mobs like Axolotls.
The Wild Update, on the other hand, aims to do more of what Caves & Cliffs did but on a smaller scale. The long-awaited deep dark biome and mangrove swamps are two new biomes being created.
Along with frogs, the Minecraft Live Mob Vote winner allay will be introduced. The Wild Update will include blocks such as sculk, mud and other materials.
The Wild Update brings lots of fun content to the game. However, it isn't as extensive as the Caves & Cliffs updates. Caves & Cliffs introduced new mobs, biomes, and essentially reengineered the game's terrain and biomes.
Caves & Cliffs did make significant changes to the wilderness in a similar way that The Wild Update plans to do.
The Wild Update is likely to be delayed, so Mojang still has time for further developments. These may reveal that version 1.19 will have a greater significance than versions 1.17 or 1.18. Although it is a difficult task, it is possible.
