Why you will fall in love with Minecraft 1.18

A quick summary of Minecraft 1.18 – Cave & Cliffs Part 2 and why you are absolutely going to love it

Minecraft updates have always been game-changers, but this time around, the most anticipated Minecraft 1.18 is supposedly going to be the biggest one with loads of changes that extend to all the gameplay aspects. Are you excited about it already? We all are! Did you know that the Caves and Cliffs update had to be split into two parts? Just imagine the volume of the update that it had to be broken into two parts. Are these details making you want to play it right away? Wait while you dig into further details and prepare yourself for an exciting play! Here's what will make you fall in love with Minecraft 1.18:

Minecraft Bundles


Multiple new elements have been added to the game throughout the 1.18 update. The most useful among these are called "Bundles". They operate similarly to shulker boxes as they serve as your inventory's extension. Bundles are made using rabbit hide, and they will allow you to store all your items in one inventory slot and carry them around. There are also some speculations regarding goat horns that will be obtained via goats. But I am afraid we will have to wait for further details.

Boats with Chest

Brand new Biomes with Variants of Caves and Cliffs

The 1.18 update will bring new biomes to the world of Minecraft like never before. Brace yourself for some outstanding new biomes that will bring into play the deepest and darkest of caves, along with lush green cliffs and mountain variants. Besides the cliffs and the plains, biomes will also introduce new plants, blocks and, of course, new rules for mob spawning!

The Upgraded Sculk Sensor

Otherside Disc

This new disc added in 1.18 was composed by Lena Raine, the composer behind the iconic nether tune Pigstep, but now with a new theme in a new update! This disc can only be found in the deepest of dungeons and strongholds underground, with a matching color scheme on the texture. With the low spawn rates of this item, and being un-farmable, this disc is going to be incredibly rare, so get geared up to try and find this scarce item.

World Generation Extension Minecraft 1.18

World Generation Extension

The second part of the Caves and Cliffs update will bring drastic changes to the overworld as well as the form of world generation changes. As the Y-axis of Minecraft is now getting an extension, so you will be seeing everything in the new world taller and deeper. As the update will level up the Y range from 0-256 up to 64-320, you can imagine the huge difference it will make – everything bigger, deeper, and more meaningful.
