Minecraft 1.18 seems to be just around the corner as developers Mojang starts a new phase of testing.

Instead of the usual snapshot released this week, the Minecraft team chose to launch a pre-release version complete with major bug fixes.

For fans eagerly awaiting to play the Caves and Cliffs Part 2 update, this is great news as it means we are much closer to releasing the update.

It should be noted that this new pre-release comes with a numbered build which means it won’t be the last.

This suggests there will be at least one more before Caves and Cliffs Part 2 is ready for public consumption and may need more.

A message accompanying the new pre-release reads: “The first 1.18 pre-release is here!

“From now on you should mainly see bugs being fixed. Additionally, pre-releases don’t follow the normal snapshot cadence of Wednesday’s release, so stay tuned!

“That said, this pre-release introduces biome blending, meaning you shouldn’t have to find any hard boundaries between new and old territory. In addition, we have also reintroduced the Amplified and Large Biome world types.”

Mojang also offered a new story regarding the new Caves and Cliffs Part 2 update, further teasing the upcoming release date slated for 2021.

Focusing on the new Caves coming to the game, the message reads: “Suddenly Dee came to a stop. Slowly they opened eye to eye and then quickly gasped. This cave looked like nothing they’d ever seen before!

Sharp nails protruded from the ground, but they also hung from the ceiling. At first glance, Dee looked as if Dee had landed in front of a vicious monster, with bared teeth. But as they approached the stalagmites, they realized there was nothing to fear. They reached out and touched it gently, confirming that it was nothing more sinister than a rock formation.

“Dee wandered about and became more confident with every step in the new territory. It looked untouched. Had anyone else seen this place? Where did it come from? It felt new, as if it had happened overnight. But how could that be?

“Maybe caves grew in the same way as trees, with roots to hold them in place. Was it only a matter of time? Or was something else at play here? As Dee pondered the possibilities, they forgot to watch their steps.”


Minecraft 1.18 – also known as Caves and Cliffs – was split into two parts earlier this year due to the expanding size and ambition of the expansion.

Caves and Cliffs Part 2 will add many new and useful features such as bundles along with bags that can be stored in chests.

New types of biomes have been promised and gamers will soon be able to explore Noise and Lush Caves.

Lush Caves add fruit and nature to the cave system, along with flowers of Azalea plants and Pink Blossoms.

Mojang has given an exact date for when Minecraft 1.18 will be released, but the recent changes to snapshots mean it could be ready by early December.
