Mangrove trees are making their way to the game. They can be grown using propagules. These are the first-ever saplings that can grow both above the surface and underwater. Mangrove wood and its craftable items such as trapdoors will also be added.

4) Deep dark city


An ancient city that generates underground, specifically in the deep dark caves, was showcased during Minecraft Live 2021. The city had tall pillars and walls that were made of deep slate blocks.

Multiple loot chests could also be seen somewhere close to the center and a lot of sculk blocks were present everywhere. The loot chest contained multiple enchanted books.

3) Sculk blocks

Along with the sculk sensors, two new sculk blocks will be added to the game with the 1.19 update. Sculk catalysts and sculk shriekers can be found in deep dark caves. The sculk catalyst is responsible for the sculk growth seen in the cave biome.

When a mob dies close to it, sculk grows on blocks on which the mob died. Sculk shrieker is the most unique sculk block that makes a shrieking sound. When activated too many times, the warden is summoned because of its sound.

2) New mobs

The developers will be adding a handful of new mobs that will spawn in the swamp biome. Once the update is out, tadpoles, frogs, and fireflies will start spawning in the swamp.

The warden will be found in the deep dark caves. Allay, the winner of the mob vote, will also be added to the game; will become quite helpful to players.

1) Swamp changes

Swamp is one of the dullest biomes in the game as of version 1.17. To make exploring them a lot more fun for the players, the developers will be updating the swamp biome.

A new variant of the swamp will also be added, called the mangrove swamp. Minecrafters can guess from its name that it will be a biome full of mangrove trees. Mud blocks will get generated there as well.
