Minecraft Live is back, with a new livestream planned for mid-October.

In what Mojang Studios is calling "a celebration of all things Minecraft," the online event is returning on Oct. 16 and plans to showcase a bunch of news, content, and community creations.

Minecraft Live was first held in October last year as a replacement for the in-person Minecraft festival which, unfortuntately, had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans all over the world could instead tune into a livestream to hear about all of the exciting plans that Mojang had for Minecraft in the near future.

This year, the event promises that fans will be treated to a packed guest list which includes "new and familiar faces from Mojang Studios, our amazing community, and a surprise appearance or two." Mojang also said of the event "on the menu you will find in-depth interviews, exciting reveals, a nail-biting vote, and puns galore! In lieu of gifts, please send positive vibes so the power doesn’t go out."
