Minecraft version 1.20 camels

Back at Minecraft Live 2022 last month, Mojang announced its plans for Minecraft version 1.20. Well, in the latest Minecraft Preview build this Wednesday, Microsoft’s in-house developer is introducing experimental features for version 1.20.

Mojang says Minecraft 1.20 will come to users in 2023. If you are not familiar with this update, it is the standard version that will reach all regular Minecraft players. The developer says the release will focus on more creativity and player expression. In particular, Mojang wants to give players even more freedom to play the way they want.

The latest Minecraft Preview version offers a first look at some of the features included in version 1.20. While players can test these new additions now, they are experimental. This update is currently only available for PC, Xbox and Android. That means it’s not available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, or iOS.
