How to download Minecraft 1.19.3 pre-release 1

Mojang has finally released Minecraft 1.19.3 Pre-Release 1 for the community to download and try. This is the penultimate phase in update development, where Mojang keeps track of all the changes and additions they have planned for the update and only works to iron out minor issues.

Although Mojang announced that the 1.20 update would not be released until 2023, they have deliberately refrained from dedicating all upcoming snapshots and pre-releases to the highly anticipated update.

Interestingly, the Swedish company is taking a different approach, releasing only a handful of future features as part of the experimental resource pack. They will continue to add only snippets of new features below 1.19 until and unless they are fully ready for 1.20.

Just open the official game launcher and if there are any updates, wait patiently for them to finish as they may add the latest early access. After opening the launcher, go to the “Installations” tab and enable Snapshots in the top right corner of the search bar.

Go back to the main menu and locate the version dropdown menu next to the “Play” button. Here you need to find the “Latest Snapshot” which says “1.19.3 pre1”. Just select the version and click play. The official game launcher will automatically download all necessary version files to run Minecraft pre-release 1.19.3.

Make sure you always create a new world in such beta game versions as they can corrupt any already existing worlds.

When will Minecraft 1.19.3 be released?

Along with the new pre-release, Mojang also announced the release date of the update. If everything works fine in the last pre-release versions, the Minecraft 1.19.3 update will be officially released on December 6th, 2022. In the meantime, Mojang is working to fix any issues that may arise with new or existing features.

Since Mojang changed their approach to releasing new features and updates, they added an experimental feature resource pack that contains all the new features for the 1.20 update. This resource pack can be activated during a new world build to experience all new features like camels, bamboo blocks, etc.

Apart from that, the 1.19.3 update will also come with a completely overhauled creative mode inventory. Additionally, players can now obtain Piglin heads when the Piglin mob is killed by a Charged Creeper. Players can also place each mob head on a notepad to play that particular mob’s ambient sound.

Vexes have also been retextured and completely changed to look similar to Allays. This fits perfectly with the speculative narrative of Illager catching Allays to turn into Vexes.
