Minecraft 1.18 Caves and Cliffs update: It is a virtual builders' paradise and since its launch in 2011, Minecraft has been growing in popularity and has quickly become the most popular cross-platform sandbox games for mobile PC and consoles. The popular game is currently working on the upcoming version 1.18 of the game – the Caves and Cliffs update. Widely considered one of the biggest updates to the game since it was released, developer Mojang decided to release it in two halves, one in June and the other arriving later this year. For those who have a thing for building something, Minecraft is it - you are provided a hollow world and given the opportunity to build to your heart's content.

As part of the upcoming Minecraft 1.18 update, Mojang is bringing several changes to Minecraft game's environment, including new biomes for caves and mountains – we have also recently reported on the much-rumoured 3D biomes that could be making their way to the next major update to the game.

However, while Mojang will only release the Minecraft version 1.18 update when it is deemed ready for public release, players who are curious do not have to wait until that date. Instead, they can try out a test build of the upcoming update that is shared by Mojang itself and allows gamers to try out the new features and additions to the game. Here are the steps to follow in order to test the latest Minecraft experimental snapshot.

How to download the Minecraft experimental snapshot 3

1. Mojang doesn't allow gamers to download experimental snapshots directly from the Minecraft launcher, since they aren't ready for public use. You will need to manually download the installer from this link, which will download a ZIP file.

2. Press the Start button and type %appdata% and press enter to open your user account's hidden AppData folder.

3. In the AppData folder, look for the .minecraft folder and select and enter the versions folder.

4. You will see a different folder inside -- you need to create a folder here, then extract the downloaded ZIP file into that folder.

5. Now go to the Minecraft launcher and select Installations, then make sure the modded option is selected and create a new installation.

6. You will need to select the version you just created in the AppData Minecraft folder and give it a name. Then click on Create which can be selected to play the latest Minecraft Experimental Snapshot.
