Minecraft continues its growth as one of the most popular PC games. Mojang Studios has revealed major news about part two of the Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Update. This update will launch later in the year and introduces a new “blending” feature. Players who have loaded old worlds will now see the updated features in action, with cave biomes appearing beneath existing chunks.
Seed Parity is another major feature of the update. For the first time ever, Seed Parity will be available for the Java and Bedrock Minecraft versions. Although there are some minor differences, the majority of the games will align, so seeds can be shared among the two versions to create almost identical world layouts.
The update will not deliver all that was promised. As such both the Deep Dark and archaeology features won’t be included in this year’s update. The Deep Dark is slated for future updates. However, the archaeology features have been put on hold until a later date.
Mojang expressed appreciation to the Minecraft community during Minecraft Live 2021. Minecraft players provided tons of feedback, research, and helped test early builds throughout the year.

These omissions aside, 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Update One is shaping up as one of the most ambitious and great Minecraft releases ever, especially when it’s paired with its sibling, 1.17 Update One. The Caves and Cliffs Update features new mobs and biomes as well as massive changes in world generation through underground caves and mountainous summits.
What is Minecraft?
It is maintained and updated by Mojang Studios which is part of Xbox Game Studios.
Minecraft is one of the popular PC Sandbox video games that was almost entirely developed by Notch from its inception until Jens “Jeb” Bergensten began working with him. He has since been the head of Minecraft’s development.
It features music composed by Daniel “C418”, Lena Raine, and paintings by Kristoffer Zetterstrand. The game was initially released under the name Minecraft Classic on May 17, 2009. It was finally released fully on November 18, 2011.
Minecraft was released on mobile devices and consoles. Microsoft purchased Minecraft and all Mojang Studios assets for US$2.5 billion on November 6, 2014. Notch left Mojang in the meantime and no longer works on Minecraft.
Minecraft focuses on allowing the player to explore, interact with and modify a dynamically generated map made of one-cubic-meter-sized blocks. The environment includes blocks as well as plants, mobs, and other items. You can build, mine for ore, fight hostile mobs, and create new blocks and tools from the various resources in the game.
The open-ended game model allows players to create structures and other artwork on their single-player maps or on competitive multiplayer servers. The game’s primary goal is to reach the End dimension and defeat the Ender Dragon.
