Introduction

Welcome to the official Guide to Survival! There’s something very special about starting a new game of Minecraft’s Survival mode. A fresh, never-before-explored Overworld lies all around, and it’s up to you to build the life you want to lead within it. 

You know it’ll take work. A lot of knowledge. Maybe a little luck, too. You’ll go on adventures, and come across amazing sights and priceless treasures. It won’t be long until you’ll feel that the world is yours. But a little extra know-how is always helpful! We’ve packed this guide with hints and tips gathered from years of experience. You’ll learn about the different biomes waiting to be discovered and what you might find in each one, the mobs you’ll encounter on your journey, and some of the vital items you’ll need to survive and thrive. 

Happy Minecrafting!
