The Wild update is expected to arrive later in 2022 with a ton of new features for Minecraft, but Mojang Studios isn’t making players wait that long to try out some of these new features just yet. Beta builds and pre-release snapshots have been rolling out for weeks, and a new Minecraft: Java Edition snapshot is now rolling out to players with a fresh batch of new features, changes, and bug fixes.

Minecraft: Java Edition Snapshot 22w15a is the latest release from The Wild Update, and continues development with new features and plenty of changes for players to sink their teeth into. The main feature of this particular snapshot is absolutely the addition of a long-range attack for the Guardian in deep darkness, which terrifyingly includes opening the Guardian’s ribcage to unleash a devastating sonic attack.

Swamps and mangrove vibes also get healthy tweaks, while a few dozen bugs get squashed. Minecraft’s latest snapshot is available now to play on PC and via PC Game Pass, and arrives as part of Mojang Studios’ effort to develop The Wild Update for full release later this year. Minecraft: Java Edition is one of the best PC games you can play, and this snapshot is a small part of that.
