The Wild Update Has Arrived
Minecraft 1.19 has kept players on the edge of their seats since its reveal in late 2021, and it’s finally arrived.
This update introduces the iconic Warden and his dark den, and the Deep Dark biome filled with Sculk blocks and sensors for the blind and deaf monster to find its foes.
To round things out, The Wild Update also introduces the Allay. Allays are a brand new Minecraft mob that was voted into the game by players in the 2021 Mob Vote.

Minecraft Java & Bedrock Edition Merge on PC
Minecraft editions have offered a variety of experiences across the game’s many platforms. But Mojang has decided to unify Minecraft Java & Bedrock Editions on PC by selling the two together.
This is fantastic news for Minecraft players looking to take the game to other platforms. It’s also great for those looking to play with friends who prefer other editions and platforms. Overall, this means more community overlap in general, which is always a great thing for the health of the game.
For players who already own either edition of the game, you’ll automatically receive the other edition in your Minecraft Launcher. If it isn’t displaying just yet, Mojang has asked for a 2-3 day period as it rolls out to all eligible users. So be patient if you can help it, and if you don’t see it soon, putting in a ticket may help.
