Back when PewDiePie was a lesser-known YouTuber, he spent hours on the pixelated survival game, Minecraft. His humor alongside the hilarious gameplay clips he made quickly made him a YouTube star. At the start of a recent Reddit video, Felix names the upcoming Minecraft ‘Caves and Cliffs’ update as the reason behind his hiatus.

If you have followed the YouTube star, you know how passionate he is about Minecraft.

In addition to this, Minecraft has added “glow lichen, powder snow, and deepslate blocks, as well as the new amethyst geodes”. This allows players to craft spyglass and tinted glass. Lastly, the ‘Caves and Cliffs’ update introduced the metal copper. Players can now craft lightning rods using this material.
