Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta features a new music disc and many changes

Minecraft is scheduled to get a lot of new content later this year, but the update hasn’t arrived yet. Mojang Studios is still developing the feature-packed release, and the Minecraft community is involved every step of the way. On Thursday, the studio released Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Beta for interested gamers, and the changelog is impressively long.

The new beta, which is also available for Minecraft Preview, continues progress on The Wild Update, which will be released sometime in 2022. The content update will include new biomes, mobs, features, and much more for players to enjoy.

Highlights of the beta/preview duo include a new music disc to accompany the music included in the latest beta, and a host of tweaks and improvements to various other features of The Wild Update such as Warden, Sculk, frogs, and more. In case you missed it, Mojang Studios also recently released a new Minecraft patch update: Bedrock Edition for all players.

Minecraft is one of the best Xbox games you can play, and players are encouraged to participate in the development process and provide feedback on upcoming features and changes.
