Minecraft’s 1.19 update is The Wild – here’s what’s confirmed so far

Minecraft Live 2021 has come and gone, but not without a whole lot of detail about what to expect from Minecraft‘s next update. Well, Minecraft’s next next update. The 1.18 release date with many of the Caves and Cliffs part two features is still coming this year, but now Minecraft 1.19 has been confirmed as The Wild update, launching in 2022.

The Wild will feature a major swamp update including mangrove trees. Mangrove trees will grow from propagules which can be planted underwater or on land, and they’ll grow up into big masses of root blocks with vines hanging down around them. You can harvest them for a new wood type. You’ll also find full-on mangrove swamp biomes.

Frogs will also debut here, complete with animated croaks. They’ll start as tadpoles (which you can put into a bucket), and grow into one of three variant frogs – snowy, swamp, or tropical – based on the temperature of the biome they mature in. Frogs will eat fireflies, which are also getting added in The Wild, and will hop toward lily pads when they can – they might also be tempted into a fall by dripleaves.
