1. Caves and Cliffs updates, 1.17 and 1.18

Caves & Cliffs is a game update that changed the game in so many ways that it had to be split into two parts between versions 1.17 and 1.18. The first part of the update, which was released on June 8, 2021, included a variety of implementations, such as amethyst geodes, cave biomes, copper, axolotls, and a plethora of other content between blocks, mobs, and items. And version 1.18, released on November 30, 2021, refocused the game’s off-road generation.

2. The Nether Update, Version 1.16

While the Nether existed prior to the 1.16 update, it evolved gradually over time with small fixes and additions. The Nether update, which was released on June 23, 2020, changed everything by introducing new Nether biomes and structures as well as many new inhabitants such as piggies, hoglins, zoglins and striders. Blackstone and respawn anchors were also added, and the presence of ancient ruins was introduced in update 1.16. The update has had a significant impact on the Nether.

3. The update that changed the world, 1.7.2

The title “update that changed the world” is a lofty one for any update, but version 1.7.2 did its best to live up to it. The update included a slew of new biomes and variants, as well as new structures and the AMPLIFIED world type, which improved game terrain generation. On October 25, 2013, a major update was released.

4. Villages and looting, 1.14

Village & Pillage Villages made its Minecraft debut on April 23, 2019. It existed prior to the 1.14 update, but Village & Pillage made them far more useful to players. Trading was changed, and villages began to form differently depending on the biome. Horrible raiders and their bases were added. One of the most significant benefits of Village & Pillage was that it made obtaining Totems of the Undying more repeatable by allowing players to initiate raids and farm them instead of clearing forest settlements as before.

5. Redstone update, 1.5

Redstone undeniably changed the face of the game and did so in his own unique way. The majority of the updates focused on Redstone and expanding its functionality. New Redstone blocks, such as daylight sensors, droppers, activation bars, hoppers, and Redstone comparators, have been added, completely reimagining how Redstone signals interact. While not every player is a skilled Redstone engineer, the 1.5 updates have resulted in the creation of some of the most incredible machines ever seen in a video game. Redstone launched on March 13, 2013.
