The Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Update is here
Download Part I today!
As the Caves & Cliffs Update launches today, I think we should take a moment to reflect on an important development this brings. I don’t mean the discovery that fierce predators can take on adorable forms, or the surprisingly playful nature of powder snow. For once, I’m not going to hold a speech about the beauty of copper. Actually, have you seen the different hues? And when it oxidizes? It’s basically magic! But, I digress. Now that we’re finally updating the caves, what are we going to focus on next? I suggest “The Text Update”, just turn all the blocks into words. They don’t even have to be in cursive! I’m not unreasonable, I’m a writer.
Anyway, here it is! Caves & Cliffs: Part I is launching today! Download the update for Bedrock Edition on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, and Windows 10. You can download the Java Edition update on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
Now that we know where we can get the update, let’s take a look at the very serious, art-house trailer.
Caves & Cliffs: Part I introduces new mobs and blocks to Minecraft! Get to know the axolotl, but don’t let the adorableness of this bucket-happy mob fool you. It is very much a predator. The goats are also incredibly cute, but also incredibly fond of ramming, so keep your distance or prepare yourself for a journey through the air. If you happen to be standing near a body of water when the goat’s head connects with your blocky body, you might be bumped into the glow squid. Be sure to grab some glow ink while you’re swimming with these luminous lovelies!
You can now find blocks such as small and big dripleaf, pointed dripstone, caves vines and glow berries, azalea and azalea leaves, flowering azalea and flowering azalea leaves, hanging roots, rooted dirt, moss carpet, and moss block.
You’ll also get to play with glow lichen, powder snow, and deepslate blocks, as well as the new amethyst geodes! That means you can craft the new spyglass and tinted glass! Hmmm. I feel like I’m forgetting something. Hahaha! I jest. I would never forget to mention that Part I brings COPPER! You can now craft lightning rods, which is almost as metal as the entire Nether Update.
Are you still here? What are you doing, sitting around listening to me go on about copper and crystals? Go download Caves & Cliffs: Part I now so we can discuss the new ore textures in detail! I’m just going to go say hi to the goat over there, I’m sure it’s all tuckered out and poses no threat whatsoever.
