With some time having passed since the last major content update for Minecraft The Wild Update, the community eagerly awaits any news on what the future of the game might hold. There are a few different avenues that Mojang uses to inform the community about the current state of the game, and the next promising event is Minecraft Now.
Minecraft Now, explained in more detail below, is a way to bring the community together while sharing news about the game. The Minecraft Now August 2022 event will take place on August 25 at noon ET, 9:00 am PT, or 6:00 pm CET. Players can quickly check how long until the event starts by checking the YouTube stream wait page.
What is Minecraft now?
Minecraft Now is a series of online live streams from Mojang Studios. The studio will share information about the game’s development along with other spin-offs from the franchise, upcoming DLC, and community celebrations and events.
The series of live broadcasts has been ongoing since December 9, 2021, usually with a month or two between live broadcasts. Live streams have a wide range of times, from just over half an hour to over 70 minutes, depending on how much content Mojang wants to reveal.
At the first event, the developers showed off a lot of Caves and Cliffs: Part II, a building challenge with Iskall85, a popular HermitCraft member, and fan art related to the upcoming update, as well as sharing news related to MC Dungeons.
The February 10, 2022 event showcased frogs as part of The Wild Update and featured Warden-related art, released in 1.19 The Wild Update, and even showcased builds on the official Mojang server.
The show on April 28, 2022 showcased Allay, the most anticipated feature of update 1.19 The Wild, fan art for the frog, updates on MC Dungeon’s Luminous Night Seasonal Quest, and other news for the game.
The May 19, 2022 showcase featured AntVenom, a very popular content creator for the game. The content shown included content art for the frog, fan art for Allay, community reactions and concept art for Warden, and a look at the distant lands that housed the aforementioned AntVenom.
The last event that already happened was the June 30, 2022 event, which showcased the Warden and Mangrove Swamp biome added in the Wild Update and fan art related to the update as a whole. It also featured information and news related to MC Legends. There was also a look at the SpongeBob SquarePants downloadable content for the Bedrock Edition of the game.
Minecraft Now August 2022
While there may be some surprises that Mojang hasn’t told the community about yet, we do know a lot about what will be shown during the August 2022 Now event, including the main hosts, guests, and the event’s main gimmick.
Hosts will include Vu, Anna, Ingela, Cameron and Agnes. There will be a tour of Anna’s art museum on Spawnpoint, the official server hosted by Mojang. Ingela and Agnes will build a tribute to their favorite mob. There will also be fan art on the new mangroves.
The real draw of the event will be the ability for viewers to vote for one of the game’s two boss mobs that event guests will have to fight against. Players can join a Bedrock server in Minecraft Preview and vote from the server. Players can vote for Wither or Ender Dragon.
The server also has a lot of appeal outside of the boss vote. Players can enjoy an in-game roller coaster ride or play mini-games like parkour, dropper, and battle arena to try and get a spot on the server leaderboards.
The server is only available in Minecraft Preview, which can be accessed from the Windows Store, Xbox Store, and Xbox Game Pass. Players on Android can also participate through the beta version. This process will require players to sign in again with their Microsoft accounts. The mob vote will start at noon on August 24 and will last for 24 hours and 15 minutes.
Where to see Minecraft now in August?
All streams made by Mojang Studios related to all games found in the franchise, including spin-offs, can be found on the game’s official YouTube account. The live stream announcement for the August 2022 event is now live, allowing those who wish to keep the tab open to wait for the stream to begin.
The live stream page will also update over time, showing those waiting how many hours are left until the event begins.
