A major update has launched for Minecraft on consoles, PC, and mobile devices. Called Caves & Cliffs: Part 1, this update includes new mobs, new blocks, and more. Here’s a quick overview.

The Caves & Cliffs: Part 1 update adds three new mobs to the game: Goats, Glow Squids, and the Axolotl. Glow Squids produce Glow Ink, while Goats can become aggressive and ram into players if they get too close.

Next, this update adds a wide variety of new blocks to the game, like Dripleaf, Pointed Dripstone, Cave Vines, Azalea Leaves, Flowering Azalea, Rooted Dirt, Amethyst Geodes, and Moss Carpet, among others.

In addition to finding these new blocks, players can now craft new items, like a spyglass and tinted glass. Plus, players can now find Copper, which can be used to build items that will visibly “age” over time, just as copper ages in the real world. This aging process will turn the copper into three different blocks over time: “Exposed Copper,” “Weathered Copper,” and “Oxidized Copper.”

The Caves & Cliffs: Part 1 update is now available in the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft on Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, iOS, Android, and Windows 10. Players using other Windows versions, Mac, or Linux can download the update for the Java Edition of Minecraft to access this new content.
