Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Part 1 is only a few days away from its official release. Today, Mojang rolled out a new Bedrock beta version for the Minecraft 1.17 update.

With Java Edition getting frequent pre-releases, Mojang made sure the bedrock version is also up-to-date with all the new features. Developers are working hard to prepare tfor the1.17 update, set to release on 8th June.
