Minecraft 1.14 release ofVillage and Pillage,is an upcoming major update to theJava Editionwith a planned release date at the beginning of 2019. Jeb joked that it had been seven years since the last major changes to Villages, so it was about time.
Players will also be able to craft the new Crossbow weapon. In addition to delivering more damage, the range of the weapon is further than that of the bow.
“VILLAGE & PILLAGE” UPDATE NEWS:
Crossbows– They seem to be loaded and fired in separate actions, and can shoot arrows and fireworks. According to the official Minecon announcements page – 3 enchantments will be available –Fast Load,Multishot, and a secret third enchantment.
Revamped Biome Villages & Villagers– Villages are redesigned depending on the biome and the villagers will now have skins depending on what biome they spawn in. On top of biome specific textures, villagers will get unique textures based on their professions (more than the 6 basic ones we have now) and I believe they mentioned giving them different behaviours for different times of day (meeting in market areas, going to work, etc)
Pillagers– Illagers that will raid villages in a group weilding weapons e.g. crossbows. Definitely hostile.
Illager Beast– Beast travels alongside Pillagers to help raid, seem to be tanky, they also had a saddle on its back so could be implying that Pillagers can ride them
Sandstone walls– Not much to say but neat, huh 😀
Smooth Sandstone Stairs and Slabs– These are also being added in! Praise bonus stairs and slabs!
Which is where you will also find the new passive mob, the Panda. Panda’s also consume the Bamboo and Agnes indicated they’ll come with a variety of traits such as lazy, aggressive or playful with rare variants discoverable too.
Coming before 1.14 though will be a minor update adding a few more items to the game. No word on the version number of name, but for now this looks like a possible 1.13.2 release. Scaffolding will be quick to put up and affected by gravity; when the build is complete, the scaffolding can be torn down quickly with ease.
