1.18.1 Pre-release 1 (known as 1.18.1-pre1 in the launcher) is the first and only pre-release for Java Edition 1.18.1, released on December 3, 2021,[1] which makes changes to the fog and fixes bugs.

Changes[]

General[]

Fog
  • World fog now starts further away from the player, to make distant terrain more visible.
