Since its 1.0 launch all the way back in 2011, Minecraft has continued to receive major updates, with no clear indication of it slowing down any time soon. The latest update, titled the “Cave and Cliffs” update has now gone live, with Part 1 now available for all to enjoy.
The Minecraft Cave and Cliffs update Part 1 is available now for both the Bedrock and Java versions of Minecraft, and brings with it a litany of improvements and additions. Most notably, the update adds a number of new blocks and mobs.
Three new mobs are being added to the game: the axolotl, goats, and the glow squid. On the blocky side, 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 blocks are all being added to the game.
That’s not all however, as glow lichen, powder snow, deepslate blocks, and amethyst geodes are being added, allowing players to craft both spyglass and tinted glass.
The final major addition is copper, allowing players to craft lighting rods – to name just one example. Each new mob and block added to Minecraft can fundamentally change the way the game interacts and plays, and so the Cave and Cliffs update offers major changes to the way Minecraft is played. It will be interesting to see exactly how the new additions in part 2 serve to further change the game.
