It's that time once again - Minecraft Live 2021 is returning as a virtual show next month and will be jam-packed with content reveals, interviews, a community vote, and more next month.

Minecraft is one of the most popular games in the world and has a community that makes some pretty cool creations, so it should come as no surprise that it has its own dedicated convention. As with last year's show, the 2021 edition is going to be a virtual event — although what exactly we'll be seeing is a bit of a mystery.

What's Happening at Minecraft Live 2021?

Minecraft Live 2021 is going to be of interest to any fans of the game or the wider franchise. Here's what you can look forward to seeing according to an article on the franchise's official website (via Reddit):

  • In-depth interviews
  • New content reveals
  • A "nail-biting" vote
  • Puns galore

If you're wondering about the "nail-biting vote," Mojang previously allowed players to pick the next mob for the game and the next biome to get an update. A tweet on the game's official account notes that this year's vote will be about picking the next mob to come to the game. Sadly, we don't know much more in the way of details beyond that just yet.

When is the Minecraft Live 2021 Start Date?

The Minecraft Live 2021 start date will be on Saturday, October 16, 2021, at 12:00 PM Eastern. You'll be able to watch it on either minecraft.net/live or the franchise's official YouTube channel.

There's still plenty of fun to be had in the game while you wait! You can buy Minecraft Bedrock Edition for PC, consoles, and mobile via its official website starting at $29.99 or your regional equivalent. If you do, you can check out the free new Minecraft: Emerald Tycoon map that launched late last month.
