Developer Mojang has released a new beta update for the Bedrock version of Minecraft for Windows 10, Xbox and Android. This is another part of the upcoming "Caves and Cliffs" update, which will be released later this year. In detail, mountains get a larger selection of sub-biomes, which will provide more variety in your Minecraft game world.

A total of five different variants are added with the new update. These include Lofty Peaks, Mountain Grove, Mountain Meadow, Snow Capped Peaks, and Snowy Slopes. In addition, players can look forward to new textures for different elements. These include coal, iron, gold, diamond, redstone, blue patch, emerald, and copper. In the Patch notes it also states that the spawn of rabbits and goats has been moved to the new biome. Coal, iron and emerald will also be found in the mountains in the future.

If you like to be busy building in Minecraft, there's news here too. The update increases the maximum height from 256 to 320 blocks. This means that you will have even more space for your buildings in the future. You can access the beta via the Xbox Insider Hub from the Microsoft Store. Look for "Minecraft for Windows 10" under "Insider Content" and you can take a first look at the new update. All players of the Java version can currently try out the new caves of the "Caves and Cliffs" beta.
