Mojang promised Minecraft Caves and Cliffs long ago, and while the meaty update suffered from delays last year, it's finally time for part two to release. Mojang announced Caves and Cliffs Part II will launch November 30 on all platforms, and it's a free update.
Mojang made the announcement in a new blog post, highlighting all the new content players can look forward to in addition to what came out in the first update back in June:
"Part II gives the mountains and caves that you know and love a makeover. Updated terrain generation, higher peaks, more elaborate cave systems – even the ore veins are larger! They are all so gorgeous so I might have to accept one of the makeovers that my team offers me on the daily. If they can make me look like a lush cave, who am I to say no?"
Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Part II Is Arriving This November
Another highlight of the announcement is candles, a long-requested source material. However, some items, including goat horns, bundles, and archaeology are delayed until a later update in 2022.
