Mojang revealed Minecraft’s Caves and Cliffs update, which arrives in Summer 2021 and, as the name suggests, it will make some big improvements to cave and underground exploration and 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. In addition to the previously mentioned mountain generation, there will also be 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, as well as different blocks being present and new mobs to encounter.

Some of the new blocks include the Sculk Sensor, a block that emits a redstone signal, allowing players the chance to build such “amazing contraptions” as a wireless redstone.

There will also be stalactite and stalagmite blocks that are “spiky blocks with different mechanics, such as increased fall damage if you land on them.”

As players are exploring the underground, there will also be the new copper ore to find, which can be used to craft a lightning rod block. Additionally, the lucky few will happen across the crystal geodes that can be used to craft a telescope.

As for the mobs, certain new ones will be introduced 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.”
