Minecraft is all about creativity and customization, and that often shows in the many texture packs available for all the different versions of the game.
Much like Java Edition, Minecraft: Bedrock Edition offers a wide range of downloadable texture packs for players to customize their gaming experience. These packs range from pixelated retro styles to vanilla-inspired looks to high-fidelity photorealism.
The right texture pack for a player depends on their preferences and hardware constraints, but there’s nothing wrong with trying out multiple packs until players find something they like.
As we approach the first few months of 2022, many gamers can check out some of the best texture pack options.
Minecraft: The Best New Bedrock Texture Packs for 2022
5) Soft n’ Simply by MidnitePixel
Minecraft’s vanilla textures work well enough when it comes to retro pixelated visuals, but Soft n’ Simple cleans them up while still keeping an old-school feel. Sporting a bunch of very colorful textures, Soft n’ Simple doesn’t dramatically change the look of the game’s textures, it just makes them look deeply colorful and well-rounded.
Blocks look a little smoother in this texture pack and are aesthetically pleasing for players who enjoy a more traditional feel.
For lovers of apocalyptic survival, Bedrock players can turn to The Ashlands. This pack is technically a resource pack, but it includes a huge texture overhaul to fit the dry, dead, and desolate theme.
The water still looks relatively clean, but the foliage in the world with this pack is clearly not healthy. Whatever calamity created The Ashlands, fans of apocalyptic survival will feel right at home in this arid wasteland.
3) Nostalgia RTX by Winz1234
Minecraft’s visuals are fine for their time, and some players love the quirky look of the game. However, it doesn’t hurt to give them a facelift when possible.
That’s where Nostalgia RTX, a pack currently in beta, comes in. Using height maps and textures from older versions of the game, Nostalgia RTX also uses RTX technology to add AI-informed ray tracing to blocks (if players haven’t already downloaded ray tracing on the official Mojang website).
The pack also uses PBR, known as physics-based rendering, to simulate realistic lighting effects. By combining RTX and PBR, natural light will project through the blocks in a much more holistic and realistic way.
It doesn’t do much in terms of the textures themselves, but Nostalgia RTX offers a gorgeous visual experience with old-school Minecraft textures.
2) The call of the Michelins forest
Despite being in beta, The Call of the Wild is an excellent texture pack that could be considered “Vanilla+” as it brings more scale and flair to the game’s original texture designs. However, this doesn’t just increase texture resolutions, as some blocks are redesigned to have improved geometry.
For example, Chorus Trees in the End contains spikes and flowers. In a way that makes it easier to play, the ores also light up, making them noticeably more visible, even in low light conditions.
This pack was originally used for Pocket Edition, but since Pocket and Bedrock Edition run off the same code base, converting the pack for Bedrock use is incredibly easy.
1) Radiant RTX Bundle by Lioncat6
Gamers who value excellent lighting should look no further in 2022 than Lioncat6’s Radiant Pack RTX. Using the same RTX technology used in other texture packs, the Radiant Pack makes multiple blocks in the game shine with brilliant specularity.
Portal blocks, fire, ore blocks, and even eyes of ender can stand out significantly in almost any shader pack due to the awesome glow of the Radiant pack. It might not be for everyone, but this pack is one of the best new additions to the massive roster of texture and resource packs in 2022.
