Thirst is an exclusive feature to Hardcore Mode. Thirst goes down quicker than Hunger.


The game was met with mixed reviews from critics, disliking the heavy leaning towards a harder, much less casual playing style, yet pleased with the creativity involved with it and the other new features. Most critics also disliked how little the core features of the game were changed, since this is a new game and not an update.

However, it was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews from other players, many of who very enjoyed how true the sequel stayed to the original.


  • Upon first release, Minecraft Two uses Java Edition 1.14 as its base, and doesn't get any features from further Java Edition or Bedrock updates.
