Mojang recently released a new test build of Minecraft that includes a working version of the upcoming 1.18 update, also known as Caverns and Rocks. Players who tried to launch the beta have already shared their impressions – most are amazed at how natural, interesting and unusual the new landscapes look.
With a test snapshot of Minecraft 1.18, you can generate realistic mountains and even caves reminiscent of Moria from The Lord of the Rings.
According to the Minecraft designer, such an unusual release of the test version, when it comes out separately as an experimental snapshot, separately from clients, reflects how seriously the game is changing from 1.18. You can download the beta from the official website in the INSTALLATION section . Please note that this is not the final version and there may be problems. So make backups!
Even if you are not in a hurry to dive into the world of experimental Minecraft builds, we suggest taking a look at the videos and screenshots taken by players in the early Minecraft 1.18 build.
