You are entering your first game ever in the survival mode of Minecraft with almost nothing and you don't know what to do. But the time is running out as when the night comes, hostile mobs in Minecraft will start coming for you. While there are many ways to deal with this, most new players will confuse about what they should do and waste the whole day.

In this article, we will show you all the most essential things you need to do on the first day in Minecraft.
