1.14 (also referred to as Village and Pillage) is an update for Minecraft: Java Edition that was released on April 23, 2019. Its primary focus is villages, adding a new subset of Illagers known as pillagers, and redesigning village architecture to match the biome where it is located. This update also includes many new blocks and mobs, a revamp of the crafting system by moving some functionalities to different blocks, updates the taiga biome with foxes and berries, and adds a new bamboo forest jungle variant along with pandas and bamboo.
