Minecraft enthusiasts around the globe are gearing up for the much-anticipated event of the year, Minecraft Live 2023. The annual streamed event, hosted by Mojang Studios and Xbox, is set to unveil the roadmap for the future of the Minecraft franchise.
Minecraft Live Event Details
Mojang Studios officially announced on Wednesday that Minecraft Live 2023 will be broadcasted on October 15, 2023, commencing at Noon CT / 1:00 p.m. ET. The event promises to bring a plethora of updates concerning Minecraft and its extended universe, including insights into Minecraft Legends and Minecraft Dungeons.
A highlight of the event, as confirmed by Mojang, will be the community mob vote, a tradition where fans get to choose a new mob to be introduced in the game. Details about the three mobs up for voting remain under wraps, with more information expected to be released as the event date approaches.
What to Expect from Minecraft Live
While the full roster of announcements remains undisclosed, there are high expectations and educated guesses surrounding what might be unveiled during the event. Here’s a breakdown of what fans are speculating:
- Minecraft’s Next Update: Following the ‘Trails & Tales Update’ earlier this year, it is almost certain that the next substantial content update will be revealed. Although details remain scant, it is anticipated that the update will be available for both the Java and Bedrock editions, featuring new elements co-developed with the community.
- Minecraft Dungeons: The future of Minecraft Dungeons, the first spin-off from Mojang Studios, is eagerly awaited. The game has remained relatively quiet since the revelation of ‘Fauna Faire’ during the last event. Fans are hopeful for news on continued support and upcoming developments.
- Minecraft Legends: Despite a rocky start with balancing issues and bugs, Minecraft Legends has seen substantial improvements. The community is looking forward to updates on post-launch support and what lies ahead for the action-strategy game.
- Community Mob Vote: Building on the success of the previous year where the Sniffer mob was added to the game post-vote, this year’s mob vote is returning with three new mobs. The voting will commence 48 hours before the event, with results to be announced during the show.
