Robert Collins

Minecraft Live 2022 is a wrap, and this year’s stream did not disappoint with a slew of new announcements on everything Minecraft. Let’s jump right into it.

Minecraft 1.20

The next Minecraft update will bring four major new features to the game. These are the camel mob, hanging signs, chiseled bookshelves, and crafting with bamboo. And you can bet that update 1.20 will also bring with it a ton of improvements to make the overall Minecraft experience even better.

New skins

The Minecraft dressing room will see the additions of Makena, Efe, Noor, Kai, Ari, Sunny and Zuri in addition to Alex and Steve as default skins.

Minecraft Legends

The highly anticipated next addition to the Minecraft family of games got some attention at Minecraft Live 2022 with a 4-player co-op live demo. Besides just showing off the game, the demo introduced us to the first speaking mobs. Minecraft Legends will release in the Spring of 2023.

Minecraft Dungeons

Fans got a sneak peek at what’s coming in Season 3: Fauna Faire. These include new flairs, emotes, skins, pets and other content, as well as a new multiplayer mode for the Tower.

Minecraft Marketplace

Lots of new DLC is coming to the Minecraft Marketplace.

  • Batman DLC: courtesy of DC and Noxcrew, this will include new locations like the Batcave, Wayne Tower, and the Monarch Theater. Also villains Penguin, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, and more.
  • Frozen Planet II DLC: a five-part DLC will launch in tandem with the BBC series. You’ll be able to play as a walrus, polar bear, eagle and more across the frozen biomes of this DLC.

Both these DLC additions will release on October 18th.

Mob vote

The sniffer mob beat out the rascal and tuff golem with just over half the vote. The sniffer will join the game as a permanent addition. You’ll find sniffer eggs hidden away in chests in underwater ruins. You must bring them to the surface to hatch sniffers.

That concludes our recap of Minecraft Live 2022. It was quite a stream, with lots to get us Minecraft fans excited about. You can watch the full stream below.
