Village & Pillage out today on Bedrock

Download it for Xbox One, Windows 10 Edition, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch today!

Did it take a village to finish Minecraft’s biggest update yet? Oh pah-lease. It took so much more! It took hardworking developers, pixel artists, that wonderful person who keeps the office fridge stocked, far too many employees to thank here, and most of all – you! – the players, giving us your constant feedback every step of the way. You helped make Village & Pillage an update we couldn’t be more proud of.

Best of all, we get to release it today! Xbox One, Windows 10 Edition, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch players will find the update ready to be installed either right now, very soon, or in the recent past – in fact, why not check your chosen Minecraft platform now and see if you’re ready to join all new-villages, fight all-new mobs, and discover tons more all-new all-great features!

(Playing Minecraft: Java? You get Village & Pillage today too! Click this lush line of emerald green text to find out more).

You’ll find a full changelog below, but while you’re still up here, I’ll highlight some of my favourite new features:

  • Pillagers! What can I say? I love a good scrap, and so do the newest mob to enter Minecraft, even if they’re not too bright. Quick, craft a brand-new crossbow before they attack you with theirs!
  • The Wandering Trader! A mysterious merchant who travels the lands in search of sales. Sure, I could waste more of my life telling you all about this sales savant, but why bother when I can just link you to this ace video all about the Wandering Trader instead? Or this brilliant article written by Per ‘you better mention I also worked on that video’ Landin?
  • New villager trades! You’ll find villagers busy beavering away at their new jobs in each village you visit, and we’ll have a deep dive into all their new occupations this Saturday!

Keep checking Minecraft on Xbox One, Windows 10 Edition, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch for the update, and enjoy!

Known Issue: some mobs are bugged and might look like new villagers in some Marketplace maps. We're working on a hotfix and we want to get it out to you as soon as we can - please don't open these worlds until then. See for more information.

Please note that there is a bug that currently affects HD texture packs on mobile devices. Using these texture packs may cause your game to crash. Until we get this bug fixed, we advise you to not use HD texture packs on mobile devices. We hope to get this bug fixed soon!
