The long-awaited version of Minecraft 1.17 has finally been released! I will not translate the entire announcement of the new version — detailed information about all the changes has already been published on our website as the preliminary versions are released.
Therefore, I will limit myself to an introductory word and a short list of innovations.
Here it is! The long-awaited cave update. And slightly mountainous. That’s right, the update of «Caves and Mountains», part 1, is coming out today!
Finally, you can swim with glowing octopuses, fight in a team with axolotls, and fall down the mountain from the blow of a butting goat. You can build using new blocks, such as copper, stalactites or moss, develop hanging roots and cave vines around and admire the new texture of the ore. Light up your homes, caves, mines and life with wonderful glowing berries. Assemble a telescope and watch
