After months of waiting, Mojang has finally released the Minecraft 1.17 Caves & Cliffs update on June 8th, 2021. Players can download the update on any platform they choose, which is supported by the game.

Three new mobs have been introduced in the first part of the Cave & Cliffs update, which are the goats, axolotls, and glow squids.

A few new ores have been added to the 1.17 version of the game, like copper ore. They can be found underground and mined with a stone pickaxe or better. In addition, a lot more exciting changes have been made to the caves, leaving players even more thrilled about the second phase of the update.

The second phase of the update is planned to be released by Mojang, but not until winter 2021. In the second part of the Caves & Cliffs update, players will be able to see the new cliff changes and another new mob called the warden.
