The Biggest News from Minecraft Live 2022

Mnecraft Live is back for another year, and, just like with past livestreams, the 2022 edition had some notable developments for fans.

That includes a look ahead at the next major update for the main version of Minecraft as well as details on spinoffs like Dungeons and Legends.

If you couldn’t catch the event, ahem, live, here’s the big stuff you missed.

The next big Minecraft update, which brings the game up to version 1.20, doesn’t have a name or a date attached to it yet — and that’s on purpose.

At Minecraft Live, the team spoke about keeping expectations in check by  not revealing the full plan or name until closer to launch.

For now, we know at least a few things, including additions like decorative hanging signs, bookshelves you can put actual books on, the  ability to craft with bamboo and new camels you can ride with a friend.

the game will be getting seven new characters that players can choose  from the get-go: Makena, Efe, Noor, Kai, Ari, Sunny, and Zuri.

They’re expected to be added to the game in late November or early December.

And while it doesn’t have a specific date just yet, the company says Legends will be launching in spring 2023.
