Minecraft has gotten so much bigger over the last year and Minecraft 1.18 is the pinnacle of that. Here's what you should know about the update

Latest - Minecraft 1.18 out now

Minecraft 1.18 is finally out worldwide for everyone to play. You can get it downloaded and ready to go right now.

We'll update you over the next week with all the best mods, textures and more.

Release Date Confirmed

We now finally know that Minecraft Caves and Cliffs part two will launch on November 30th, later this month.

You have just under two weeks to get everything ready and downloaded in time.

Minecraft 1.18 Release Date

Up until now, we had some pretty good guesses. Finally, we know it will arrive on November 30th.

The team has been releasing tonnes of new snapshots, testing the waters for their new ideas. If these all go well and no major issues pop up, the team should be nicely on schedule. This means we can expect to see the update some time between November and December this year.

Release Time

Like the release date, we don't have a release time yet but we have a pretty good guess. Caves and Cliffs part one updated at around 1 pm ET / 6 pm BST on Tuesday, June 8th.

We can expect something similar for the second part.

What's in it?

Minecraft 1.18 is all based around caves and cliffs. Where part one was setting up the groundwork, this is finishing it out. We should expect to see huge changes to the way structures are put together and caves should be much bigger with new biomes and places to explore.

You can even find a terrifying creature called the warden in a brand new biome named the deep dark. You can check out a little of what the team are working on in snapshots now.

What are Snapshots?

Snapshots are a way for the team to test out new features on part of the playerbase. It essentially treats players like bug testers, getting them to report any issues and help the team build a better game.

You can only access them on Minecraft java by enabling them in the settings menu.
