The Minecraft 1.18 patch notes, otherwise known as Caves and Cliffs Part 2, expands the frankly enormous build-em-up experience just that bit further. Minecraft has been going from strength to strength as it has expanded its world and features across the almost decade-and-a-half it has been around. Yet the latest Minecraft update 1.18 is one of the biggest yet, ensuring that the world you explore is denser than ever before. Looking to jump back into this blocky sandbox? We'll run you through everything new with the Minecraft 1.18 update, also known as Minecraft 2.34 on consoles or if you're playing the Bedrock version.

Minecraft 1.18 Update: Release

Explore deep and fangerous caves in Minecraft 1.18 update.

The Minecraft 1.18 update is available on the PC Java version of the game now, while the Minecraft 2.34 update is available on all Bedrock platforms: Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC if you're playing the alternate version. Players will be able to download the update for free if they own the game, with the download coming in at around 200mb. Game Pass subscribers are able to download the entire game for free on either Xbox or PC. This marks the second part of what was originally intended to be one big update, however Caves and Cliffs Part 1 released earlier this year.

Minecraft 1.18 Update: New Features

The Minecraft 1.18 update brings taller mountains.

Minecraft 1.18 update is one of the most ambitious updates the game has ever seen, and therefore comes with a host of new features and changes. Here's a rundown of everything new that's arrived with the Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Part 2 update: 

  • Increased the world height and depth, adding 50% more vertical space to build and explore. 
  • New cave generation to explore below your existing world. 
  • New cave and mountain biomes like Lush Caves and Jagged Peaks. 
  • Drastically updated biome, cave and ore generation. 
  • Added several new music tracks during gameplay 
  • A fix to over 70 bugs, issues and parity changes. 

With that 50% additional vertical space, not only can you build higher than ever before, but the new mountainous biomes can also be far more epic. And with generated caves updating into your existing servers, you'll have a whole new rank of environments to explore and build in. The Minecraft Wiki has all the finer details if you want to read about every little change.

That's everything you need to know about the Minecraft 1.18 update. Want some Minecraft house ideas to fill out your newly expanded world? We've got you covered.
