Minecraft Live is returning for another year, with something for every Minecraft fan.

Minecraft is one of the biggest games in the world (some might even say Minecraft is the greatest game ever made, and every major announcement from the franchise ripples across the gaming community and its millions of Minecraft players. With the onset of the ongoing pandemic, Mojang Studios made an effort to shift its in-person Minecon event to the online-only Minecraft Live in 2020, which is returning for another year with all-new interviews, reveals, community events, and more. Minecraft Live 2021 is happening, and we’ve brought together everything you need to know about when the event starts, how you can watch, and what you can expect.

Minecraft Live 2021 is officially kicking off later today. We’ve outlined everything you need to tune in when Minecraft Live 2021 begins, including what to expect from the show. Minecraft Live 2021 will also feature a brand-new Mob Vote, which we have more information on below.

Available everywhere you play

Minecraft is an inarguable and complete success. It has sold copies in the hundreds of millions, has a huge following of dedicated players, and lets you unlock your every creative desire. It’s also available on every platform imaginable, including Xbox, Windows 10, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS. Play with anyone and play anywhere.

What is Minecraft Live 2021?

The debut Minecraft Live event was Minecraft Live 2020, which was where we learned about the Caves and Cliffs Update for Minecraft, the future of expansions for Minecraft Dungeons, like with the recently released Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons, and more.

Minecraft Life is the one-stop shop for all the latest Minecraft-related news and announcements, and it rolls around once a year, courtesy of Mojang Studios. Because Minecraft Life is an online stream, absolutely anyone can tune in and participate in Minecraft Live events like the annual mob vote, where the Minecraft community can vote on a new mob to be added to Minecraft in a future update.

Minecraft Live 2021 was officially announced by Mojang, and airs on Oct. 16, 2021. With Minecraft continuing to grow bigger and bigger, we’re expecting some huge surprises and reveals during this year’s Minecraft Live, so fans should definitely be looking forward to what’ll be shown off during the event.

Mojang’s products, like Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons, are available practically everywhere, including Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox Game Pass, and even Xbox Cloud Gaming, so practically everyone has a reason to tune into Minecraft Live 2021.

The future of some of the best Xbox games will be shared at Minecraft Live 2021, as well as possible inspiration for the next wave of best Minecraft toys and gifts.

How do I watch Minecraft Live 2021?

Minecraft Live 2021 is an online-only event, meaning you only need an internet-connected device to tune in and witness the event unfold. Minecraft Live 2021 officially begins on Oct. 16, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. PDT / 12:00 p.m. EDT / 6:00 p.m. CEST. You can check out the image above for even more specific time zones.

The Minecraft Live 2021 pre-show will begin at 8:25 a.m. PDT / 11: 25 a.m. EDT / 5:25 p.m. CEST, or 35 minutes before the main show begins.

You can tune into Minecraft Live 2021 from the following locations:

What can I expect from Minecraft Live 2021?

Minecraft may be one game (two if you count Minecraft Dungeons), but the extended Minecraft brand is large enough to fill the entire year with news and updates. Minecraft Live is where Mojang Studios can collate the largest and most significant announcements into one place and deliver them to the Minecraft community, so you can expect the event to be full of news. It’s hard to know exactly what to expect, but we do have a few ideas.

  • A new mob vote. Mob votes are commonplace at Mojang events, where the studio tasks the Minecraft community with voting for one of the next mobs to be added to the game. Last year’s mob vote ended with the glow squid as the victor, and another mob vote is coming in Minecraft Live 2021. We’re already learning about the Minecraft Live 2021 Mob Vote, and we’ll continue to update that post as more details emerge (and the vote takes place!).
  • Interviews and commentary. Minecraft Live 2021 will feature a variety of interviews and commentary from Mojang Studios team members, community members, and even (apparently) a few surprise appearances.
  • The next Minecraft update. Minecraft is always moving forward, so there’s inevitably another update planning to follow after the Caves and Cliffs Update enjoys its moment in the spotlight. We don’t have any details on what this update could be, yet, but there’s a good chance we’ll learn what’s coming to Minecraft in 2022 and beyond at Minecraft Live 2021.
  • An update on the Caves and Cliffs Update. The Caves and Cliffs Update was tragically split into two parts, and the smaller first part has already been released. The more major second half is expected before the end of the year, and is still in active development at Mojang Studios. Expect a hefty update on the progress of 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Update Part Two, any new features or changes to the original plan, and (maybe) even a release date.
  • An update on Minecraft Dungeons. Minecraft Dungeons just concluded its epic Arch-Illager saga with its latest DLC, as well as the release of Minecraft Dungeons Ultimate Edition. At first glance, it looks like Minecraft Dungeons has reached its end, but that’s not the case. Mojang has hinted that big things are in store for Minecraft Dungeons in the future, so it’s possible we’ll get a sneak peek at what’s to come during Minecraft Live 2021.
  • Other reveals and announcements. It’s no secret that Mojang Studios is a massive studio, and it’s undoubtedly working on other projects and products that we haven’t seen yet. There’s a chance we may get to see some of these secret projects during this year’s Minecraft Live 2021, especially as “surprise reveals” are being teased. I did recently discuss what other games Mojang could be making, any one of which may become reality one day. Don’t hold your breath, though, as nothing has been confirmed.
  • Minecraft on Xbox Series X|S? I hear you; we all want to hear what’s going on with Minecraft on Xbox Series X|S, especially when it comes to ray tracing. I’ve previously written about how Minecraft on Xbox Series X|S is disappointing, and little has changed since then. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen any indication that this mysterious update is even officially planned, let alone if it’ll appear during Minecraft Live 2021. This may be one of the “surprise reveals” mentioned earlier, or it may not appear at all. We’ll have to wait and see.
