    Magnificent new mobs!

    Foxes leap, pandas roll, and ravagers charge into Minecraft! Some are friendly, some are sleepy, and some just want to headbutt you into the air!

    Crossbows at the ready

    Defend the village!

    When the horn is blaring, illagers and pillagers are about to attack. Build strong defenses and arm yourself with the new crossbow and shield!

    Build a better world

    Water wells are redesigned and expanded in the Village & Pillage Update, which gives us an excuse to think about wells in real life! We're partnering with Minecraft streamers and players to support charity: waters' mission to bring clean water to every person on the planet!
