Minecraft Live is an annual online Minecraft event, where the developer will make important announcements about the game. There will be also a community vote where players will decide which mob will be added to the game next. This is a huge event that Minecraft players wouldn't want to miss. As Minecraft is growing bigger and bigger, we can expect that there will be some surprises in Minecraft Live 2021.

In this article, we are going to cover everything we know so far about the Minecraft Live 2021 event.

2. What can we expect from Minecraft Live 2021?

The Minecraft Live 2020 announced the Caves and Cliffs Update for Minecraft and the future of expansions for Minecraft Dungeons, which are all huge updates.

In Minecraft Live 2021, we can also expect that they will give us a glimpse of all the big news, and updates that can fill the whole year of 2022.

We might get more information about the Caves And Cliffs Update Part 2.

We can't tell specifically what they are going to announce yet but here are a few guesses:

  • Interview and commentary: There will be various interviews with the Mojang Studios team members and probably some popular influencers as well.
  • The Caves and Cliffs Update Part 2: The Caves and Cliffs Update was split into 2 parts because the update was too big. The first part was already released a few months ago and the 2nd part is expected to be released at the end of 2021. We might get to see what the Caves and Cliffs Update part 2 will bring us in Minecraft Live 2021.
  • Community Mob Vote: The Mob Vote is an event where players get to vote which mobs will be added to Minecraft next. In the last year's vote, Glow Squid was the winner. There will be another Mob Vote in Minecraft Live 2021. The details of the mobs in the vote are currently not available yet.
  • Minecraft Dungeons updates: The developer hinted that there will be something big coming to Minecraft Dungeon and we might get to see it in Minecraft Live 2021.
  • Other announcements: Mojang Studios is a huge studio and they might be working on a lot of big projects at the moment. If so then, Minecraft Live 2021 is a great place to announce these projects if there are any.

3. Where to watch Minecraft Live 2021?

Minecraft Live 2021 is an online event and anyone can participate by watching it on different platforms. You can visit the official pages or accounts of Minecraft on Twitch, Youtube and Facebook to enjoy this special event.

4. Minecraft Live Mob Vote

Minecraft has officially announced that will be a Mob Vote in the Minecraft Live 2o21. More details about the Minecraft Mob Vote 2021 will be revealed in the upcoming week as they release more videos. We will update more information about the mobs as soon as possible. Players might vote for the mob they want to be in Minecraft next on Twitter.

In the Minecraft Live Mob Vote 2020, the 3 mobs in the vote are Moobloom, Glow Squid, and Iceologer. Glow Squid won the vote with 36.9% in the first round and 52.7% in the Final.

The Minecraft Live Mob Vote 2020 features 3 mobs in the vote, Moobloom, Glow Squid, and Iceologer.

In last year's vote, Minecraft YouTuber Dream was accused of rigging the vote by asking his fans to vote for Glow Squid. In return, Dream promised to follow them on Twitter. Knowing this, many other streamers made a counter move by asking their fans to vote for Moobloom and Iceologer, which actually made the situation worse. These community votes like this should reflect the real opinion of the majority of players but not a political war of influencers.

This year, Dream tweeted that he is going to rig the vote Minecraft Live Mob Vote again. We don't know if it was a joke or not so we just have to wait and see what will happen. Mojang might change the format of the Mob Vote to prevent this from happening.
