Minecraft will get a big update in mid-2021, as Mojang announced during the Minecraft Live Events. The update will focus on a new crowd as well as some additions in key areas of the game to add variety and fun in the game.
No exact date has been revealed for the upcoming Hang and Cliffs update in Minecraft. Mojang, however, has released Snapshots for the Java Version of the game, while Bedrock Edition gets a Cave and Cliff-themed Demo.
Snapshots are essentially a test version of Minecraft released to gather feedback regarding the upcoming update to the game and fix any common pre-launch issues.
Downloading Snapshot in Minecraft: Java Edition is quite simple and doesn̵7;t take too long.
How to download Snapshots in Minecraft: Java Edition
To install the latest Minecraft Snapshot, just follow these steps:
1. Open the Minecraft Launcher.
2. Select the tab “Settings”.
3. Switch to “Enable Snapshot”.
This will download and install the latest available Minecraft Snapshot. Players can then proceed to provide direct feedback by playing the game. This is done so that players can enjoy new content, which in turn will provide feedback to the developer on any issues players experience while they are playing the game.
Minecraft’s expansive nature makes it an extremely tricky game to introduce updates as several co-systems depend on each other to work together and provide a seamless experience for players.
Every seemingly small change in the game meta can lead to bigger consequences that aren’t easy to prevent in the first place. Hence, the Snapshots and Beta versions of Minecraft are essential to improving the game experience and making the introduction of updates seamless.
