Welcome to the Minecraft: Guide to Survival!

There are many ways to play Minecraft, and one of the most popular is Survival mode. Here, you must find your own path through the game, crafting only with the blocks you can find and facing many dangers, knowing that with one false move, you might lose everything. It’s super exciting­—and super challenging!

Maybe you picked this book up because you’re trying to survive your first night, or maybe you’ve started your journey and you’re looking for a little support. Or maybe you’re already an experienced hero and want to know what’s in store for you on the other side of that mountain.

No matter your experience, this guide will introduce everything you need to know to set forth and succeed in Survival mode. You’ll learn how to understand Minecraft’s user interface and how to craft essential tools. Also, how to defend yourself against fearsome mobs and keep yourself well fed, and how to meet friendly villagers, brew potions and enchant your gear.

Finally, we’ll set out for the weird and threatening dimensions of the Nether and the End, where you’ll need to use everything you’ve learned to become the hero you were destined to be.

The world is big and full of adventure.

So let’s get out there!
