What's the point?

Minecraft 1.18 is all about caves and cliffs. Part one was about laying the groundwork. This is part two. Expect to see major changes in the way structures are constructed. Caves will be larger with new biomes and places for exploration.

In a new biome called the deep dark, you can even find the warden, a terrifying creature. Here are some snapshots of the work of the team.

What are Snapshots?

Snapshots allow the team to test new features on a portion of the playerbase. It treats players as bug testers and encourages them to report any issues and help build a better game.
