Minecraft Caves and Cliffs is the biggest update that players have received in the game’s long history. After a great underworld update, Mojang is preparing for another stunning update.
The upcoming update makes changes to the generation of the overworld terrain in Minecraft. Caves and mountains have remained the same for a long time, but not anymore. The Caves and Cliffs update introduces many new biomes, mobs, blocks and items.
Since Minecon 2020, fans have been excited about the update. Unfortunately, Mojang had to split the update due to technical challenges. The first part of Caves and Cliffs will arrive this summer, while the second part is scheduled for the winter holidays.
Mojang has already released many snapshots with new features and gameplay changes. Players can download snapshots to experience the experimental features firsthand.
