Minecraft players are readying themselves for the next update in the game called “The Wild Update.” But how big will this particular content update be compared to the last update? The last two updates in the game were two parts of a collective update called “Caves & Cliffs.”
This update changed the way the terrain is generated within worlds while also bringing new biomes and mobs to populate them. There was also more content brought to the game by these updates, which is part of the reason they were rolled out in two parts.
When looking back at the game’s previous Caves & Cliffs update, the amount of new content is staggering when compared to past updates. Minecraft’s build limit was also increased, and the way that many biomes generate was changed to allow for more variety, such as creating mountain biomes more capable of generating huge peaks.
Many biomes were added including lush caves and dripstone caves, filled with new ores like copper, and mobs like Axolotls. The Wild Update will try to improve the same things as the previous update but on a smaller scale. New biomes such as mangrove swamps and deep dark biome will be introduced.
The Minecraft Live Mob Vote winner allay is also introduced alongside frogs and deep dark Warden mob. Blocks such as sculk will also be introduced to the game, making the new update significant in terms of content.
Although the new update will bring plenty of fun content to the game, it doesn’t look as wide-ranging as the previous two updates. While it’s introducing new mobs and biomes, Caves & Cliffs did the same. In a way, the previous update made huge changes to the wilderness, similar to what The Wild Update plans to do.
