Preview of Minecraft: The Bountiful Update
The Minecraft pre-release is available for Windows and Mac users who own the game. This version allows players to test upcoming features and help find and fix bugs before official releases. Developer Mojang has always been open to letting users try out future updates, and the current pre-release, 1.8.x Bountiful Update, brings several tweaks and changes to the game. While there is no big headline feature like previous updates, such as the world generation changes in version 1.7 or the addition of horses in version 1.6, the Bountiful Update offers a more refined and improved gameplay experience.
One of the best things about the Minecraft pre-release is that players can easily switch between it and the official release without losing their saved games. To install the pre-release, players simply need to download the file, open the Minecraft launcher, click the 'New Profile' button, name it 'snapshots', and enable experimental development snapshots. This makes it incredibly convenient for players to try out new features and give feedback to the developers.
Overall, the Minecraft pre-release is a welcome addition to the official game. It's free and provides players with a glimpse into the future of Minecraft. With new features and improvements, it's definitely worth checking out.
