what you need to know
- Minecraft Preview is the program through which Mojang Studios tests upcoming changes and additions to Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.
- On Wednesday, the studio began rolling out Minecraft Preview 18.104.22.168 for interested gamers.
- The preview version doesn’t include any new features, but it does have many bug fixes and general improvements.
Minecraft is still building on 1.19 “The Wild Update,” the last major content update that brought new biomes, mobs, and blocks to the long-running survival crafting game. Mojang Studios continues to improve that update with post-release patch updates and fixes, all of which are pre-tested in Minecraft previews and snapshots.
On Wednesday, Mojang Studios released Minecraft Preview 22.214.171.124, the latest version that is now available to interested gamers and testers on Xbox, PC, and iOS (and Android through the old beta program). The build isn’t the most exciting and lacks major feature additions, but it improves on vanilla parity, experimental spectator mode, and more Minecraft elements.
Minecraft has been constantly changing for over a decade, and it’s hardly the same game it was all those years before. These updates have allowed Minecraft to remain in the conversation as one of the best Xbox games, and that’s not going to change anytime soon.
In case you missed it, Mojang Studios has announced that Minecraft Live will return on October 15, 2022, when players will be able to hear about Minecraft’s next major update, the upcoming Minecraft Legends game, participate in a new vote on the mob and much more.
