Microsoft is releasing part 1 of the Caves & Cliffs Update for Minecraft today, and it’s celebrating with a new trailer.
The video is pretty much all about the goat, who appears to headbutt basically everyone on the screen, but we also get glimpse of more content coming with the update, like the copper blocks, the axolotl, the spyglass, and more.
Unfortunately, we don’t get to see much in terms of actual “caves & cliffs” because the world-generation part of the patch was spun-off to the Holiday season.
You can check out the trailer below.
f you’re unfamiliar with the update, you can check out an official description of what you can expect below.
“The update will be available for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, and Windows 10 – as well as Java Edition on Windows, macOS, and Linux. Clearly, nobody is safe from those dreaded creatures. The good news is that the update also includes the lovely and totally-harmless-unless-you’re-a-drowned axolotls! Unfortunately, they’re confined to either water or a bucket, so they won’t be able to join my anti-goat crusade.
But that’s not all – the once Minecraft Earth-exclusive mob, the glow squid, will also be gracing our oceans! While I was Team Mooshroom (another petition I need to get around to), I’m just glad this one won’t be rewarding my kindness with a brutal shove. Plus, it’s so pretty it might just motivate me to build that huge aquarium I’ve always wanted.
And what would a Minecraft update be without blocks? This round, there’s plenty of them. Some of them will just pop up in the world, while others might be a bit trickier to discover. If instant gratification is your thing, then you can always switch to Creative mode, where you can access them all, from amethyst to dripleaves, and the highly anticipated copper block! Much like my referential humor, this block shows its age after being placed in the world, giving your builds a sense of history and a more organic feel. However, I think the most exciting thing for me is the spyglass! My eyesight isn’t what it used to be, so those goats really seem to come from nowhere right now.”
You can also take a look at more videos about new materials to build with and animals to play with, alongside one explaining the update and teasing what will come beyond.
