What’s New In Minecraft 1.15 Survival

Confirmed additions in Minecraft 1.15

Minecraft 1.15 is the next projected release of Minecraft. So far, no concrete information has been announced about this release. We expect the first news to start coming out around MINECON Earth later in 2019, with release in the Spring of 2020. As soon as information starts to come out, we will let you know.

Expected additions in Minecraft 1.15


The use of a new graphics library was originally planned for 1.14, but was eventually bumped. This is now expected to become part of Minecraft 1.15.

Savannah and Desert features

During MINECON Earth 2018 a number of features were previewed but have yet seen the light of day. It’s a safe bet to expect these in the next release. The list includes:

  • Palm trees
  • Baobab trees
  • Ostriches
  • Meerkats

Rumors about Minecraft 1.15

Another Combat Update

A few famous YouTubers have made statements around conversations with the Mojang team. Most notable, DocM via Twitter noted:

There will be a new grafics setting in Minecraft. There will be a “fancy” and “super fancy” setting. Also the combat system will get an overhaul. #MinecraftCreatorSummit2018

The Cave Update

In recent years we’ve seen the oceans updated, Villages and the wilderness update, and the End completely revamped with cities and Elytra. But what about the very core of the game, mining? This arguably hasn’t really seen a major updated in, well, forever! A Cave update could include:

  • New underground biomes
  • Different varieties of caves
  • New underground Mobs
  • New Ores and respective blocks and tools
  • New underground structures

The Nether Update

Or what about a major overhaul of the Nether? Previously Jeb spoke positively on the prospect of a new rare Nether gold ore, and unique behaviors for Pigmen related to it.

The Biome Update

The core Biomes of the game have been unchanged for the most part, for as long as we can remember. A major revamp of Biome generation – alongside the addition of many more – could breath a whole new life into the game. If you’ve spent any time playing with Biome Bundle, you’ll know just how exciting it can be to explore completely new lands. Just like playing the game as a new player all over again!
