Minecraft Live 2020 is an upcoming live event. It will held on October 3, 2020. Formerly, it was planned that the Minecraft Festival (a real-world event similar to the original MINECON events) would occur. But, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Minecraft Festival was pushed back to 2022.
There is going to be a 20 minute Community Pre-Show right before the main event.
MINECRAFT MOB VOTE
We get information that Mobs from Minecraft Dungeons and Minecraft Earth are going to be voted on to be added to Minecraft. For the second time, the watchers will be able to vote for a new mob to be added into the game in a future update. The mobs that will be on the vote are the Moobloom, Iceologer and the Glow Squid.
- Mooblooms are going to spawn in Flower Forests and are going to interact with bees in some way. Currently, it is unknown whether buttercups will also be added.
- Iceologers are going to spawn in Mountains and hurl ice clouds at the player.
- Glow Squids are going to spawn in the Ocean in dark areas, illuminating them.
Moobloom is a new variant of the cow similar to a Mooshroom. Currently, it is the rarest cow mob in Minecraft Earth. It is yellow with white spots, has buttercups growing on its back, and leaves a trail of dandelions and sunflowers wherever it walks. Apparently, there is no indication of what resource it provides when milked. Therefore, if the bovine is selected it is going to offer a new item or end up being a decorative curiosity for animal lovers.
Iceologer is a hostile mob who first appears in Minecraft Dungeons DLC, Creeping Winter. These robed sorcerers summon large blocks of ice to drop on players’ heads. If this mob ends up being the winner, it is going to spawn at the icy peaks of especially tall mountains to ward off curious players.
Glow Squid was added to the Minecraft Earth app in February of this year. It is modeled after bioluminescent deep-sea creatures. But, it is likely most players will encounter this aquatic creature in swamp biomes. In Minecraft Earth, this mob drops ink sacs, however the glowing variant may become a surface world source of Glowstone, otherwise discovered in the Nether.
Like the previous years, there is going to be a panel with Mojang Studios developers revealing some “inside scoop”. Jeb will undoubtedly be featured.
Like MINECON Live 2019, there is going to be an announcement relating to the next major update, similarly to how the Nether Update was announced at MINECON Live 2019, also with other major updates in the years before. Unlike the last years though, the announcement is going to be held at the beginning of the show.
In the trailer, Jeb tease regarding there being a board game. In MINECON Live 2019, Builders and Biomes, a board game created by Mojang Studios, was announced and later released. Because of this, there may be a board game reveal.
