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 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, Switch, PC, Xbox Game Pass, and even Xbox Cloud Gaming, so practically everyone has a reason to tune into 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 a.m. PDT / 12 p.m. EDT / 6 p.m. CEST. You can check out the image above for even more specific time zones. We also know that Minecraft Live 2021 will feature a pre-show, but we currently don’t have any details on when exactly that’s expected to start. If we had to speculate, the Minecraft Live 2021 pre-show will likely begin approximately 30 minutes to one hour before the proper full show.
