Minecraft 1.18 update: From when to what, here is everything we know so far

Published

on

Highlights:

  • Minecraft has been one of the most popular games played by players all over the globe.
  • The makers have constantly been updating their game
  • Minecraft’s second update is likely to bring tons of new features to the game.

Minecraft 1.18 will be released in late 2021 for both Java and Bedrock editions. This release will form part 2 of the Caves and Cliffs update, which was originally intended to be released as a whole with 1.17. But Mojang decided to split up Caves and Cliffs across two major updates, to give themselves more time to work on the monumental changes these releases will bring to Minecraft.

Instead of just having one or two “extreme hills” or “mountain” type biomes, there are now five new sub-biomes that make up the different layers of each mountain:

  • Mountain Meadow (Y=100-140): home to flowers and sweet berry bushes
  • Mountain Grove (Y=110-140): snowy, home to rabbits and polar bears.
  • Snowy Slopes (Y=140-170): snowy and icy, home to goats.
  • Lofty Peaks (Y=170+): peaks of stone, snow, and ice.
  • Snow Capped Peaks (Y=170+): same as Lofty Peaks but cold enough for Packed Ice as well.

  • Torches, bricks, nether bricks, and ingots, along with cobblestone, stone, brick, nether brick, and stone brick blocks (and variants of those blocks) all now deal 4 damage.
  • Torches and Fire charges have a 5% chance to light the target on fire, but fire charges will be used up in the process.
  • Lava buckets, if used to punch, have a 15% chance to light both the user and target on fire.
  • Hoes now deal the same damage as shovels of the same material.
  • When a shield is hit by an arrow, a spark effect flashes on the shield’s front face, and the player is knocked back without taking damage.
