Next Big Minecraft Update Will Be Disclose in October
Mojang’s Minecraft is as popular as ever, with players building substantial structures, making mods with mechanics that are unique, and more seemingly all of the time. As a result of continuing coronavirus pandemic, Mojang cancelled MineCon 2020, but announced it will still sponsor Minecraft Live beginning on October 3 at 9:00 a.m. PT. Yesterday, it was verified that Minecraft’s next big update will be announced during the event.
In a video put out on the official Minecraft YouTube channel, Mojang Chief Brand Officer Lydia Winters told supporters the next big update (which she coyly avoided talking about) will be discussed at the start of the occasion, rather than in the end. “You don’t need to miss the beginning of the series,” she explained, though the remainder of Minecraft Live will also incorporate opportunities like voting on another mob to be added into Minecraft.
There’ll be a 20-minute community pre-show hosted earlier Minecraft Live, according to Winters, and the developer has provided both a global time program and a number of ways to view the event on its website. It’s uncertain if the show will even discuss Mojang’s dungeon-crawling ARPG spin-off Minecraft Dungeons, that has more updates planned for the long run.
The Minecraft Nether Update put out earlier this year produced some radical modifications for long-time gamers by adding new mobs, biomes, ore types, and a ton more to flesh out its hellish alternate dimension. The game has also seen smaller upgrades including items like PlayStation VR service for Minecraft, so it’ll be interesting to see what big plans are coming next.
