Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Update Split Into Two, First Part Coming This Summer

Minecraft‘s Caves & Cliffs update has been split into two parts, with the first still set to arrive this summer.

In particular, Mojang said, the update is slated to introduce a complete overhaul to the overworld generation, which also naturally impacts caves and mountains. “Not only do we have to consider every effect this can have on the world but also how it will affect performance.
