Minecraft version 1.19 will be released in June

waiting for minecraft 1.19 (opens in new tab) update is almost over. After keeping quiet about this year’s timeline, Mojang has just announced that the Wild Update will arrive on June 7, just a week and a half away. I thought the recent pre-release builds were a sign that we’d be hearing about a specific date soon, but it’s even earlier than I expected, which makes for a nice surprise start to the summer.

Mojang recaps the highlights of Update 1.19 on his announcement blog post (opens in new tab). This marks the final destination for several Minecraft features that were delayed over the past year. First announced on Minecraft Live 2020, the giant and horrible Warden mobs and their homes in the Deep Dark biome were originally planned as part of the Caves & Cliffs update in 2021, which was then split into two updates and then dropped further. more on the Wild Update.

They’re finally arriving and they’re definitely not going anywhere now that they’ve smelled you. If by any chance you’ve played with the Guardians in the snapshot compilations over the last couple of months, like I have, you may have noticed how relentless they are. These giant monsters with their glowing hearts and antennae will terrify mobs and players who wander into their homes by hearing footsteps, sniffing them out and chasing them to inflict extreme damage with their sonic attacks. Also, the heartbeat noises they make as they hunt me down are appropriately disconcerting.

The Wild Update is also a win for building fans, with the new mangrove trees, various blocks of mangrove wood, the frog lights, and the ancient cities below ground that I might be inclined to try and move into. I have no doubt that everyone will also try to build mangrove houses.

We’ll be able to delve into everything in the Wild Update when it launches June 7 for Java and Bedrock.
