Minecraft Live 2023 Confirmed, 1.21 Update and Mob Vote Coming

Minecraft enthusiasts can mark their calendars because Minecraft Live 2023 has officially been announced for October. In a press release, Mojang, the developers of Minecraft, revealed that the event will take place on Sunday, October 15 at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST. The event will be available for viewing on the official Minecraft website and YouTube channel.

During Minecraft Live 2023, Mojang will be providing updates about the Minecraft franchise, including the highly-anticipated Minecraft Update 1.21. While the developers may not delve into all the specific details of the update during the event, they will give an overview of its scope and theme.

In addition to the update, Minecraft Live 2023 will also feature another mob vote. This annual vote allows players to select their favorite creature concept that could potentially be added to the game. The three creatures up for voting will be revealed in the weeks leading up to the event, and players will have 48 hours to cast their votes.

The mob vote has been a divisive event in the past, often sparking intense debates among the Minecraft community. Some players have expressed their frustration with the outcome of previous votes, feeling that content creators and popular choices have influenced the results. Nonetheless, the mob vote remains a highly anticipated part of Minecraft Live.

Last year's mob vote winner, the Sniffer, was well-received by the community. However, tensions often run high during these votes as players passionately advocate for their favorite concepts. Despite this, Minecraft continues to be a game that fosters creativity and imagination, as exemplified by modders who recreate other worlds within the game, such as the remarkable feat of rebuilding Bloodborne block-by-block.
