Minecraft Live 2021 brings news, announcements, and reveals to the Minecraft community on Oct. 16, 2021.
This year’s vote will feature three brand-new mobs, and Mojang Studios has already begun to tease the options.
While Mojang Studios continues to work hard on Part Two of the Caves and Cliffs Update for Minecraft, they’re also preparing to showcase the future of Minecraft with the arrival of Minecraft Live 2021. Part of this year’s event is the continuation of the annual Mob Vote, which will let the wider Minecraft community for their favorite of three brand-new Minecraft mobs. The winner will be added to Minecraft in a future update!
The first potential mob in this year’s Mob Vote is the ‘glare,’ a helpful mob that lets you know if it’s dark enough for hostile mobs to spawn.
What you need to know
Part of the event is the annual Mob Vote, which lets the community vote on a new mob to be added to Minecraft.
Ahead of Minecraft Live 2021, which officially airs on Oct. 16, 2021, Mojang has begun to tease and reveal the mob options. The first to be announced is the grumpy glare, but the other two will be shown off over the course of the week before Minecraft Live 2021. We’ll be updated this post with the mobs as we learn of them, and the results of the vote during Minecraft Live 2021, so be sure to tune in.
We’ve discussed in depth why Minecraft is one of the greatest games ever made, and is certainly one of the best Xbox games, and a good part of that is Mojang’s commitment to constant improvement.
During Minecraft Live 2021, we’ll see progress on 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Update Part Two, the future of Minecraft Dungeons, the next major update for Minecraft, the Mob Vote, interviews and more, and maybe even a look at what Mojang Studios is working on next. Of course, we’ll also probably see the inspiration for the next wave of Minecraft toys and gifts. The glare is an adorable grumpy mob that can apparently be of great use to players. These leafy creatures aren’t dangerous to players, and can actually give a warning when there’s a danger of hostile mobs spawning in the area. Minecraft recently changed how mob spawning works, so hostile mobs only spawn in complete darkness, and glares will let players know if an area is too dark. We don’t know much else about their behaviors or abilities, but they certainly look the part!
