Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular video games in the world, and developer Mojang is still putting out new content to ensure that fans never run out of things to do in this endless sandbox. The game’s latest update, Caves & Cliffs, looks to improve Minecraft’s various underground networks and mountainous regions. We now know that fans won’t have to wait much longer, as part one of Minecraft’s Caves & Cliffs update launches next week.
Mojang announced in a post to its official website that the Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update launches on June 8. The update will be available for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on every platform the game can be played on, which includes all of the home consoles, mobile devices, and PC. The update will also hit Minecraft Java Edition the same day for PC, Mac, and Linux.
As the title implies, the Cave & Cliffs update revamps the caves and cliffs that are randomly generated within Minecraft. In addition to that rework, players will discover several new creatures and items. Goats are a new land animal that will be found on mountains. Though they’re not an entirely hostile mob, goats will headbutt you if you get too close. Minecraft Earth players will recognize the glow squid, a gorgeous new aquatic creature that will make its way to Minecraft proper in this update as well.
While mining, players will discover new ores have been added to the game. Both amethyst and copper will join the game’s collection of findable minerals. What’s more, Mojang states that once copper is placed in the world, it will visually show its age over time. Lastly, the spyglass will let players get a closer look at creatures and objects that are far away. Minecraft’s Caves & Cliffs update drops on June 8. The update will also bring some long-awaited accessibility features to the sandbox game.

Donovan, I would read up on this a bit more, some things you assert are included in this patch ("revamps the caves and cliffs") are not coming until later in the year and not part of this next patch.
