Minecraft Live returns on October 15! Tune in at 1pm EDT for news, sneak peeks, the mob vote, and more! Once the mobs have been revealed, you’ll be able to cast your vote via the Minecraft Launcher, Minecraft.net, or the special event server on Minecraft: Bedrock Edition from October 13. You can even challenge yourself to mob-tastic mini-games while you’re there!
That’s right, the mob vote is making a triumphant return this year, with three new mobs for you, our wonderful community, to choose between!
When you cast your vote for a new mob, you help us decide what we’ll spend time developing. Then the mob gets added into the game as part of the next major update! Last year’s winner was the sniffer: an ancient mob that was once extinct. Now it has been sniff-sniffing around our Overworlds since the summer, digging up ancient seeds, and looking adorable.
Voting will be open for longer this year, and you will have just over 48 hours (and 15 minutes, to be exact) prior to Minecraft Live to cast your vote! Voting opens at 1pm EDT on Friday, October 13, and closes at 1:15pm EDT on Sunday, October 15. What does that mean in your time zone? Find out what time the mob vote starts for you, and what time the mob vote ends for you (because too much math makes my head hurt).
HOW TO VOTE
Like last year, you’ll be able to cast your vote within Minecraft! Join the live event server on Minecraft: Bedrock Edition to submit your vote, meet the Tinies, play mini-games, and even indulge in some mob parkour. You can also vote right here on Minecraft.net, or via the Minecraft Launcher. Our special event server will also remain open for 24 hours after the end of Minecraft Live, which means you’ll have an extra day to finish that scavenger hunt!
Which mobs can you vote for? That’s a secret – for now. You’ll have to wait until the beginning of October for that special news! Or maybe I’ll be sneaky, and scatter some clues in each of our articles? I guess you’ll have to read them all and find out!
