A little over a month ago, the Mojang studio developers announced the upcoming update Minecraft 1.17 Caves and Cliffs, which, according to preliminary official information, will be released in the summer of 2021. Please note that several beta versions are already available. Thanks to the latest beta versions of the Minecraft PE 1.17 game, players can note for themselves all the features of the functionality and additions of the upcoming update. Players can find more detailed information about the upcoming and current beta versions of the Minecraft game at monster-mcpe.com.
Also, we want to draw your attention to the fact that the latest and upcoming updates already affect almost all game aspects of the Minecraft world, namely, new mobs, resources, items, and even new game mechanics are gradually being added. Let’s take a quick look at some of the upcoming changes in the Minecraft world.
Based on their name for the upcoming Caves and Cliffs big update, it’s easy to guess what all the changes will be related to. A huge mountain range will be added and changed to the world of Minecraft, which will be partially filled with underground waters. We draw your attention to the fact that in this case the mountains and caves will not only be heavily overgrown with new greenery but also stalactites and stalagmites, which can fall on your head and cause damage. Cave growths are created not only for the purpose of causing harm to the player but also in order to bring certain benefits. The Mojang developers have added a new mechanic to extract water from them using the Cauldron block. When used correctly and carefully, stalactites can be useful to the player.
To date, we know about three new mobs that will be added to the Minecraft world with the upcoming update. In the waters of the Minecraft world, players will be awaited by creatures such as the Glow Squid. This creature was chosen by the players during the voting. This creature can be useful for players because this mob is a source of light and being next to it players can navigate underwater in dark environmental conditions.
In the mountain biome, the developers of Mojang added mountain goats, which were able to breed. This can be either useful to the player or not since under certain circumstances these mobs can interfere with the extraction of useful resources in the mountains during survival. Mountain goats can cause inconvenience by using their strength and horns in order to butt and knockback players who entered their territory.
The most interesting mob of this update is a unique creature called the Warden. This creature reacts to footsteps as it has no eyes. If the player was heard by this mob, you must either fight with him or run away, but this can be difficult as these creatures can quickly catch up with you. It will be extremely difficult for the player to run away from him, due to his movement speed he will most likely catch up with you. The Warden has 84 health points which help to survive after numerous attacks. Be attentive and careful. We draw your attention to the fact that in order for a player to escape from him or be unnoticed, you need to sneak. In this case, the Warden will most likely not hear and will not attack the player.
New items for crafting will also be added to the Minecraft world, such as the Lightning Rod and Telescope/Spyglass. The lightning rod is crafted from a new resource mined from underground, namely copper. A lightning rod will be needed to attract lightning. The telescope, on the other hand, will be a little more difficult to craft, since its creation requires not only copper but also crystals. With its help, players will be able to observe objects at a distance.
Another interesting feature of this update is archeology. Using a special brush, the player was able to find certain fragments of ancient ceramics, which can be placed on pots by firing.
