Minecraft’s Snapshot build recently received an update that added new content and a brand new mob. This content will only make its way into the live servers after being fully tested in the Snapshot build.


The Warden is a terrifying creature with no eyes that can be found within the Deep Dark. Don’t underestimate the creature because it has no eyes for it can use vibration and smell to detect nearby prey. While it is everywhere, it usually stays hidden and only comes out if the Sculk Shriekers alert them with potential prey. The Warden is also quite strong, so developers suggest players sneaking around them instead of making them angry.

Fancy Boat

Using a boat to move around items has always been a hassle in the game. To change this, developers are introducing the Boat with Chest. This allows players to bring more items on their journey and store loot after their adventure. The mechanics of the Chest are the same, so if players decide to break the boat, the loot inside the chest will spill out.
