Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Update Part 1 Will Launch Next Week

Posted on by bisecthosting

Minecraft Caves and Cliffs has been on the horizon since its reveal in October 2020, but we finally have a concrete release date for its first part, and it’s just around the corner!

Here’s what you need to know about the first Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Update, and its official release date.

Release Date

Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Update 1 will launch next week, dropping on June 8.

Up until this official reveal from Mojang, fans were only given the vague “Summer” release date window for the first part of the Minecraft 1.17 Caves and Cliffs update - so players will be happy to know it’s much closer than many expected!

We don’t have a release time just yet, but stay tuned with the Minecraft Twitter account to catch it as it goes live.

What’s Coming in Caves and Cliffs Part 1?

The massive Caves and Cliffs update was ambitious, and would’ve been the biggest Minecraft update to date - but due to concerns around time crunch, Mojang split the massive update into two parts.

The first part of the Caves and Cliffs update will add plenty of new content to the game - including the new blocks, items, mobs, and more.

The second part of the Caves and Cliffs update will include the deeper, more procedural changes like the new cave generation system and mountain generation system.

So you can expect some awesome things come June 8, but don’t sleep, the second part of the Caves and Cliffs update might be the real haymaker!
