Mojang Studios released Patch 1.18 for both Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on Xbox and Minecraft: Java Edition today, bringing the long-awaited Caves & Cliffs Part II update with a lot of changes and new features. 

Together, the two parts of the Caves and Cliffs update form one of the biggest Minecraft updates. While Part I of the Caves and Cliffs update presented new blocks and mobs, Part II will focus more on updating world generation. 

Players can expect new cave biomes, like Lush Caves and Dripstone Caves, formed mostly by the new blocks from the previous update, more diverse world generation, especially in caves and mountains, a bigger world size, with generation range and build limits being expanded by 64 blocks up and down to a total range of 384 blocks, and a lot more.

Here are the patch notes for the Caves & Cliffs Part II update: 

New Overworld biomes

Driptstone Caves
