How to Install Minecraft 1.20.2 Snapshot 23W35A

Snapshot Install Screenshot In Java Edition, installing Minecraft 1.20.2 Snapshot 23W35A is done right from the Minecraft client. Players need only open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the ‘Installations’ tab. From there, click ‘New Installation,’ select ‘Latest Snapshot’ in the drop-down menu, and click create. Your new Minecraft 1.20.2 snapshot installation will now be a selectable option before clicking play. However, Minecraft 1.20.2 snapshots have a few extra steps once in-game. Click ‘Create New World,’ ‘More,’ and finally, ‘Experiments.’ There, players can enable the built-in ‘bundles’ and ‘Villager Trade Rebalance’ features before clicking ‘Create New World’ again. Finally, with the new world made, all that’s left is to select it and click play! Please note snapshots can corrupt worlds! Ensure backups have been taken.
