Minecraft Bedrock Update 1.18.1 Patch Notes For Today

December 2, 2021

Minecraft just received the much awaited Caves & Cliffs Part II update earlier this week and now it has received an additional update with 1.18.1 to fix some related issues.

While this patch will eventually make its way to all platforms except for the platform-specific issues, Minecraft update 1.18.1 is only available for PlayStation platforms for the time being.

Mojang has confirmed that the update will be making its way to additional platforms in the coming days though, so the way shouldn’t be too long for when others can download it.
