What is Minecraft: The Wild Update?
The developers of Minecraft have explained that The Wild Update is focused on two things – ‘beautiful nature’ is one of them, and the other focus will be ‘really scary activities and adventures’.
One thing we know for sure is that players will be able to visit the subterranean Deep Dark once this update has taken effect – there will be entire ancient Deep Dark Cities down there, and players will have to contend with a hostile mob called The Warden.
