While Mojang Studios continues to work hard on Part Two of the Caves and Cliffs Update for Minecraft, they’re also preparing to showcase the future of Minecraft with the arrival of Minecraft Live 2021. Part of this year’s event is the continuation of the annual Mob Vote, which will let the wider Minecraft community for their favorite of three brand-new Minecraft mobs. The winner will be added to Minecraft in a future update!
Ahead of Minecraft Live 2021, which officially airs on Oct. 16, 2021, Mojang has begun to tease and reveal the mob options. The first to be announced is the grumpy glare, but the other two will be shown off over the course of the week before Minecraft Live 2021. We’ll be updated this post with the mobs as we learn of them, and the results of the vote during Minecraft Live 2021, so be sure to tune in.
During Minecraft Live 2021, we’ll see progress on 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Update Part Two, the future of Minecraft Dungeons, the next major update for Minecraft, the Mob Vote, interviews and more, and maybe even a look at what Mojang Studios is working on next. Of course, we’ll also probably see the inspiration for the next wave of Minecraft toys and gifts.
Here are the mobs featured in the Mob Vote at Minecraft Live 2021.
The glare is an adorable grumpy mob that can apparently be of great use to players. These leafy creatures aren’t dangerous to players, and can actually give a warning when there’s a danger of hostile mobs spawning in the area. Minecraft recently changed how mob spawning works, so hostile mobs only spawn in complete darkness, and glares will let players know if an area is too dark. We don’t know much else about their behaviors or abilities, but they certainly look the part!
