The latest version of Minecraft has been announced to the public, and is set for a 2021 release. This is version 1.17, and it focuses on cave systems and cliffs.
The new update of Minecraft promises an incredible level of sophistication when it comes to cave systems and cliff configurations. There are now more items than ever before to explore, which makes the gameplay unique and exciting.
At the time of writing, we don’t know much about the new update. However, what we are aware of is that there are several new mechanics introduced into the equation. For example, there is a creature called the Warden. It has been rumoured to be on par with the Iron Golems as being incredibly strong mobs.
It has been confirmed that the Warden is a blind mob. It cannot directly see the player, but instead operates using sound. It has hearing sufficient to detect a player moving within proximity to it, and can also hear the player when they are eating or placing blocks.
It has been speculated that the Warden is an incredibly powerful mob, being able to penetrate Netherite Armour and reduce the player to less than seven hit points. Naturally, this makes the Warden a type of mob which the player cannot engage with easily, but is more likely to flee from.
In addition to this new mob, there are many different standard upgrades including new blocks, new textures, and new biomes. All of this will help to make Minecraft a more diverse and rich experience, especially when one considers that there are plenty of different options for moving forward.
Ultimately, because the update is not planned for release until 2021, it is difficult to confirm with absolute certainty what will or will not appear. However, the Warden has been confirmed, along with the associated blocks and textures inside the cave system.
Caves themselves will receive a much more realistic look and feel, with both stalactites and stalagmites making an appearance. There will also be a new type of ore in the shape of Copper Ore. this will be able to be mind and then used for various construction items, which adds a new level of complexity with regards to the mining system. Amethyst will also be available for the first time in the game, being collected as shards and then constructed into a block.
In conclusion, the 1.17 update of Minecraft will no doubt be an interesting one to examine. It helpfully will provide a broad selection of new mechanics to make sure that the cave systems remain interesting and thrilling for the player to explore. The main point of the cave mechanics system will undoubtedly be the Warden. This incredibly powerful mob is not something that should be easily trifled with, and is instead going to be a creature to avoid. All the players will be looking forward to the new update on 1.17 in 2021. Hopefully, more details will be released closer to the time.
