UPDATE 4PM BST: Still no word from Mojang on the release of Part 1 but we are surely only a few hours away now. We had hoped it would drop at 3PM, but here we are. More to follow.
Original Story - Minecraft is the game where you can basically create whatever you want, with updates helping players get through any major bugs that might have been getting in their way of creating some cool stuff.
Caves and Cliffs, the next major Minecraft update, is so big that the developers at Mojang Studios have to release it in two parts, showing just how much work is being put into this update and has many fans excited.
What Time Does Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Start? Release Date For 1.17 Update
Fans will be able to play Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Part 1, which will be part of Minecraft update 1.17, on June 8.
Unlike other games where updates are released at a different time depending on the region, everyone will be able to play Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Part 1 on June 8.
However, there's no specific time as yet for when the update will be released across all platforms. Based on previous updates we suspect that it could arrive at around 3pm BST. This is when past updates have released, but who's to say Mojang might roll it out much later in the day to suit all timezones.
Knowing that Minecraft 1.17 will come with the first part of Caves and Cliffs is a pretty big deal for fans, though many of us were a bit surprised to know that the second part will be coming later.
Players won’t be able to get their hands on Minecraft 1.18, which will come with Caves and Cliffs Part 2, till much later this year closer to October or December so here’s hoping the first part has a ton of updates.
Minecraft is now available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
