Minecraft: Bedrock New Biomes Introduced in The Wild Update

The Wild Update
The Wild Update Mojang Studios

The Wild Update for Minecraft: Bedrock is now available on all platforms. The Wild Update features two new biomes that players can explore.

The first biome is called the Deep Dark found in the depths of the Overworld and is considered one of the scariest biomes in Minecraft: Bedrock. This biome only has one mob and that is none other than the Warden.

Although the Warden sleeps for most of the time, this mob will be awakened once the Sculk Shrieker makes some noise. Players must traverse down the Deep Dark as quietly as they can because quick and sudden movements may set off a sensor that triggers the Sculk Shrieker.

The other biome introduced in the Wild Update is the Mangrove Swamp. This biome is riddled with towering trees, small saplings, wide roots, and muddy terrain. This swamp is found in areas with naturally high temperatures and humidity. Players can go here and get some mud to create a variety of mud-brick blocks, such as stairs, slabs, and walls.

This patch also provides some changes to the Spectator Mode. Here are the highlights:

Enabling and Disabling
  • Players can switch to and from Spectator using the Settings Menu and the “/gamemode spectator” command, if cheats are enabled
  • Spectators are always flying and cannot become grounded
World Interactions
  • Spectators pass through solid blocks and entities without any collisions
  • Spectators can see out of solid objects
  • Spectators are not affected by any in-game blocks, mobs, items, portals, or effects and cannot take damage
  • Portals currently affect spectators, but this is a bug we intend to fix in the future
  • Spectators cannot use items or interact with blocks or mobs (for example, they cannot attack, feed, mount, or trade with mobs)
  • Spectators cannot open their inventory or interact with block UIs like chests (This is not in parity with Java yet)
    • Currently, spectators that die drop their inventory, this is a known issue that we want to address
User Interface
  • Spectators have a reduced HUD that does not show the crosshair, hotbar, XP, health, hunger, or armor
Spectator Bug Fixes
  • Custom input mapping for Spectator Mode added
  • Spectators are now unable to attack
  • Spectators are now unable to build
  • Spectators are now unable to drop items
  • Spectators are now unable to use items
  • Spectators are now unable to open inventory
  • Spectators are now unable to interact with the world through input
  • Spectators are now unable to interact with chests or other container UI
  • Spectators no longer fly slowly when entering Spectator Mode from ground
