Minecraft: Java Edition just grabbed a new snapshot, so it’s time for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition to follow a day later. Mojang Studios is now releasing Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta 1.18.0.21 to players enrolled in the beta program. There’s not a ton to be excited about in the way of new features, here, but Mojang made sure to include plenty of bug fixes and improvements to make the experience more polished and smooth overall.

This is the second beta officially under 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Update, which should be launching later this year (and possibly sooner rather than later). There are lots of changes to world generation included in this beta, mostly focusing on ensuring biomes and how they’re generated in the world make sense.

Minecraft Live 2021 is airing on Oct. 16, 2021, meaning we don’t have to wait long to learn about what’s next for Minecraft and we can possibly expect to see 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Update Part Two be released to the public.

Even without this massive update, though, Minecraft is still one of the best Xbox games, and boasts a huge collection of Minecraft toys and gifts to affirm its position as one of the greatest games ever made.

The full changelog for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta 1.18.0.21 includes:

Features and bug fixes

World generation

  • Updated ore distribution to make branch mining deep down more rewarding
  • Non-cave biomes no longer change with height — so no more savannas in the sky and things like that
  • Tweaked the relative size of some biomes to match 1.17 a bit closer
  • Increased the average size of most biomes (this also means biomes aren’t in the same places as before)
  • Fixed some aquifer issues (a side effect of this is that aquifers are in different places now compared to the last beta)
  • Slightly increased the frequency of underwater magma
  • Increased the amount of dungeons, especially below height 0
  • Gravel now generates below height 0
  • Villages are now slightly more spread out
  • Removed water lake features, as aquifers provide local water levels
  • Zombies once again spawn in dripstone caves — Drowned can also spawn there, however
  • Goats no longer spawn in stony peaks
  • Fixed shifted sub-chunks on Caves & Cliffs flat worlds
  • Hoodoos now generate in Eroded Badland biomes again
  • Strange pillars no longer generate below Eroded Badland biomes
  • Water and Lava springs now correctly generate at the expected frequency
  • Tweaked Frozen biomes blending
  • Canyons are now placed on the same height as on pre-1.18 world generation
