Minecraft Preview also brings Vex redesign, other minor changes

What you need to know

  • Mojang Studios is currently testing a redesign of the Vex, the hostile mob that is summoned by Evokers.
  • Minecraft Preview players can now join Minecraft: Java Edition players in the fun with a new build.
  • Minecraft Preview includes the newly updated Vex on top of a handful of other changes and fixes.

On Wednesday, Mojang Studios released a new set of pre-release Minecraft builds for players to test across every platform, with a key feature headlining both updates. The Vex mob, an uncommon hostile mob summoned by dangerous Evokers, is finally getting redesigned to make it more consistent with Minecraft’s wider visual art design.

The latest Minecraft Preview build follows its Minecraft: Java Edition counterpart in redesigning the Vex. With the update, the Vex is now visually similar to the Allay, except with more aggressive wings, eyes, and coloring. Of course, the Vex also carries a deadly sword with which it attacks its victims. Mojang Studios is also updating the Vex’s hitbox to make the tiny creature a little less frustrating to fight.
