Exciting news miners! We finally have a release date for the terrifying but thrilling new Minecraft update, Caves and Cliffs Part 2!
The Caves and Cliffs update was announced to be split into two parts back in April, 2021, as there was so much to it that Mojang Studios wanted to make sure they got it right. The block and some of the mobs were introduced in 1.17 in June, 2021. Minecraft fans have been waiting with bated breath ever since for Caves and Cliffs to be made whole with the release of 1.18, i.e. part II… and that day has finally come.
