Mojang has just concluded their Minecraft Live online event in which Mojang announced tons of new content that will be released in the near future for the overwhelmingly popular crafting game. If you missed the live show, you can watch the VOD over here.

Mojang had a lot to talk about in the livestream, the topics included:

  • Final Mob Vote
  • Caves and Cliff Update
  • Global Build Championship
  • Cross-play for Minecraft Dungeons
  • New Howling Peaks DLC for Minecraft Dungeons

Final Mob Vote

Mojang allowed the community to vote for the next mob introduced to Minecraft. The three mobs up for the vote were Moobloom, Iceologer, and Glow Squid. Each of the three mobs had a separate video that showed off the mob a little bit. While the poll was pretty close, the Glow Squid officially won the mob vote.

Caves and Cliff Update

The next major update following the Nether update has been confirmed. The Caves and Cliff update will be one of the biggest updates in Minecraft, bringing changes to the caves and mountains. The new update seems to make changes to basic mechanics such as climbing, mining, and more. Caves will have variations with new mobs, resources, and even crafting material added to the mix.

Global Build Championship

Minecraft Education Edition is about to start its first design tournament with the Global Build Championship. Participants can work in teams of three to design a product to support the coexistence between humans and animals.

Cross-play for Minecraft Dungeons

One of the most requested features for Minecraft Dungeons has finally got a release date. Mojang announced that cross-play is coming in November for Minecraft Dungeons due to the popularity of the game across Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One.

New DLC Howling Peaks for Minecraft Dungeons

Mojang really surprised everyone with the confirmation of the Howling Peaks DLC for Minecraft Dungeons. This DLC seems to be a major update with tons of new content. The DLC will include new islands, new mobs, new bosses, and even new equipment.

Minecraft is available to purchase on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, and PC.
