Minecraft - Caves and Cliffs

To kick off Mincraft Live today, Mojang Studios revealed a major update known as Caves and Cliffs. It will release in Summer 2021.

Here’s a rundown as to what’s included;

– Big improvements to cave and underground exploration
– Adds “more spectacular mountain generation”
– Mountains were the winner of the 2019 Minecon Live biome vote, and this update will make them a much bigger part of Minecraft’s world
– Snow “traps, the charming and mischievous goats, and much more
– The caves in Minecraft will soon have much more variety, with lush caves, dripstone caves, crystal geodes and more being added
– Different blocks and new mobs to encounter
– Sculk Sensor: block that emits a redstone signal, allowing players the chance to build such “amazing contraptions” as a wireless redstone
– Stalactite and stalagmite blocks are “spiky blocks with different mechanics, such as increased fall damage if you land on them”
– New copper ore to find underground
– This can be used to craft a lightning rod block
– The lucky few will happen across the crystal geodes that can be used to craft a telescope
– New mobs like the Warden, a “hostile mob well adapted to the dark caves it lives in thanks to its ability to react on movement instead of what it sees, and the Axolotl, an adorable cave-dwelling water creature that can aid in battle”
