The second part of this ambitious Minecraft update that had to be split into two parts presents new biomes, taller mountains, and larger caves to explore.
Version 1.18, known as Caves & Cliffs Part II, is now available in Minecraft. Although Part I introduces us to many of the new features that this new update delivers, the most essential features are those that are now available with Part II.
The update is finally complete
After constant snapshots, we were able to try out everything new that this new version delivers. In brief, the primary features of update 1.18 are a deeper subway ceiling and a higher celestial ceiling, a new perspective of mineral distribution, and eight new types of biomes.
One of the most noticeable new aspects of the Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Part II update is the addition of eight new biomes to the game. There are new underground Dripstone Caves biomes as well as various new mountain biomes. Aquifers and other cave types have also been included to make Minecraft‘s subway biomes more fascinating.
Caves and Cliffs
The caves and mountains are the highlights of this latest version. To accommodate several of the new biomes, the Minecraft globe has been greatly expanded vertically. The Minecraft world’s Y-axis has been enlarged by 64 blocks in each direction, resulting in a total vertical construction range of 384 blocks, up from 256 blocks previously.
Because to the greater ceiling, created mountains can now be taller, and caverns can now be deeper, up to -64. It’s about twice as much as in prior iterations.
Caves and Cliffs: Part II is available in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, and PC for Windows 10 and 11. The update is also available for Minecraft: Java Edition for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
