MINECON Live 2019

October 9, 2019


>>WELCOME EVERYONE AND THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN TO MINECON LIVE 2019. I’M VERY EXCITED YOU COULD JOIN US. I’M JESSICA YOUR PREAND POST SHOW HOST AND WE’RE HANGING OUT BACKSTAGE. THIS ANNUAL UPDATE IS AN ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT FOR ME AND I CAN PROMISE YOU WE’RE ALL IN FOR AN EXCITED EVENT I’M SUPER STOKED TO BE HERE. I LISTEN TO MINECRAFT DAILY. THE SOUND TRACK. I HAVE MY OWN BUILDS AND I CREATE A TON OF STUFF WITH MY SON. VERY PROUD OF THIS. THIS IS MY WONDER WOMAN INVISIBLE JET. SO I’M SUPER, SUPER STOKED ABOUT THAT. I ACTUALLY PUT HER INSIDE. BUT ENOUGH ABOUT ME. THE AUDIENCE IS ARRIVING AS WE SPEAK AND THE ATMOSPHERE IS ABSOLUTELY ELECTION TRICK.>>TO THIS WITH ME NOW IS THE PRESHOW AND IN 30 MINUTES TIME WILL BE THE SHOW AND THEN WE WILL BE HERE FOR THE POST SHOW. WE HAVE LOTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO. SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE OUR PANELIST. THESE GUYS HAVE RECORDED THEIR PRESENTATIONS WHICH WE WILL MAKE AVAILABLE TO YOU AFTER THE MAIN BROADCAST. PLEASE WELCOME KINGDOGZ, qmagnet, ILMANGO, SKYWALKER AND iskall85. WELCOME TO MINECON LIVE 2019.>>THANK YOU.>>CAN YOU GUYS GIVE EVERYONE A QUICK OVERVIEW ABOUT WHAT YOUR PANEL IS ABOUT. KINGDOGZ, LET’S START WITH YOU.>>THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE PLAT FOREIGN CREATE. NO MATTER WHO PURE ANYONE CAN ADD THEIR IDEAL EXPERIENCE TO MINECRAFT. IT’S KIND OF LIKE THE SEED THAT GROWS. BASICALLY YOU THINK OF AN ITEM THAT HELPS YOU FEED THAT LONG-STANDING BOSS OR PERHAPS A POTION THAT HELPS YOU LAST A LITTLE BIT LONGER IN YOUR BATTLES. DESIGN HELPS US STRUCTURE THIS IN MINECRAFT. BUT EVERY EXPERIENCE STARTS WITH IDEAS AND YOU’VE GOT TO THINK ABOUT HOW DO I BRING IT ALL TOGETHER. WE HOPE TO INSPIRE PLAYERS AND STRUCTURE THESE THROUGH DESIGN AND HOW TO EVOLVE IT.>>WOULD YOU SAY THAT YOUR PANEL IS A WAY OF TAKING THOSE IDEAS AND LEARNING HOW TO UTILIZE THEM IN THE GAME?>>ABSOLUTELY. WE WANT TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF HOW YOU DESIGN THESE EXPERIENCES AND IMPLEMENT THEM INTO THE BECAME.>>VERY COOL. MOVING ON qmagnet, PITCH ME ON YOUR PANEL.>>OUR PANEL IS ABOUT DIVERSITY 3. THE THIRD GAME IN A SERIES OF GAMES THAT I’VE BEEN WORKING ON BUILT INSIDE OF MINECRAFT. WHAT DIVERSITY IS — LIKE 10 GAMES INSIDE ONE GAME THAT IS ALL BUILT INSIDE MINECRAFT. IT’S LIKE TOTAL GAME CEPT ION. WE’VE GOT A MOB ARENA WHERE YOU FIGHT MOBS. A PUZZLE SECTION WHERE YOU CAN USE YOUR BRAIN. WE’VE GOT A TRIVIA SECTION WHERE IF YOU GET AN ANSWER WRONG OU HAVE TO DO A FUNNY LITTLE MINI GAME TO GET OUT OF THE PUNISHMENT. THE PANEL IS LIKE OUR EXPERIENCE OF BUILDING THAT. WE START ON A WORLD WITH NOTHING IN IT. IT’S JUST AIR AND WE BUILD IT. IT’S TOTALLY FREE. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THIS DIVERSITY 3 AND INSTALL IT ON YOUR OWN COMPUTER. YOU CAN PLAY SOLO OR UPLOAD AND PLAY WITH FRIENDS. ú>>VERY COOL. I WOULD GUESS FOR LACK OF A BETTER PHRASE MINI GAMES BUT ALL-IN-ONE COMMON AREA.>>YEAH. IT’S A LOT OF FUN. THERE IS A LOT OF CHOICE. CATERS TO A LOT OF ASPECTS OF MINECRAFT GAME PLAY.>>AWESOME. ILMANGO. PITCH ME ON YOUR PANEL.>>WE’RE TRYING TO PUSH THE VANILLA SURVIVOR GAME TO THE LIMITS. THE SERVER IS ALL ABOUT REDSTONE AND BUILDING FARMS FOR EXAMPLE AND WE WORK TOGETHER AS A TIME. THE TITLE IS HOW AUTOMATION CAN ENRICH YOUR GAME EXPERIENCE AND THE FIRST POINT IS AUTOMATION — YOU CAN GET AROUND THE GRINDY REPETITIVE WORK AND THE SECOND IS FUN. THE SANDBOX GAME IS ABOUT CREATING SOMEBODY LARGER OUT OF THE BASIC COMPONENTS AND WE’LL SHOW THE HIGHLIGHTS PRODUCTS. EXAMPLES INCLUDE A CANNON THAT CAN SHOOT THOUSANDS PER SECOND.>>WOULD YOU SAY YOU FOCUS MOSTLY ON MAX.>>WE ALSO TRY TO DECORATE THE AREA AROUND IT BUT WE’RE NOT EXPERTS ON THAT. WE MOSTLY TRY TO MAKE GOOD FARMS.>>WHAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT ONE THAT YOU’VE BUILT?>>THE MINING MACHINE. WE CALL IT A QUARRY.>>VERY WELL DONE. DID YOU WANT TO ELABORATE.>>SO IT’S A REALLY COMPLEX — IT’S THE MOST COMPLEX THING I’VE MADE.>>VERY COOL. ALL RIGHT. SKY WALKER, TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PANEL.>>OUR PANEL IS PRETTY MUCH MADE UP OF THE MARKETPLACE ALL-STARS. SO ALL OF OUR PANELS ARE MADE UP OF MINECRAFT MARKETPLACE PARTNERS. WE CREATE CONTENT FOR SWITCH, Xbox. WINDOWS 10 EDITION. OUR PANEL PRETTY BREAKS DOWN ALMOST LIKE THE CRAFTING RECIPES THAT GO INTO MAKING A PIECE OF CONTENT. BREAK IT DOWN THROUGH ENTITIES, MECHANICS AND TEXTURES AND END UP WITH BUILDS. WE SHOW YOU SOME OF THE SECRETS KIND OF BEHIND THE SCENES, WORK AROUND STUFF THAT WE DO AND INSPIRE YOU TO CREATE TRICK.>>TEACHING EVERYBODY ON HOW TOO BE A CREATOR.>>YEAH. AND SOME GOOD TIPS WHO FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE ASPIRING. THIS IS OUR FULL-TIME JOB. CREATING GAMES IN MINECRAFT. SO, IT’S PRETTY AWESOME. I PLAY MINECRAFT FOR A LIVING.>>DO THE KIDS THINK YOU’RE THE COOLEST PERSON IN THE WORLD?>>IT’S AWESOME. I’LL GO WITH MY WIFE AND THEY ARE LIKE WHAT DOES YOUR HUSBAND DO. WHY DON’T YOU ASK THEM. I MAKE MINECRAFT GAMES.>>FANTASTIC. LAST BUT NOT LEAST iskall85, TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PANEL.>>THE HermitCraft. TRYING TO GET THIS NOW FOR SEVEN AND A HALF YEARS NOW. QUITE RIDICULOUS. BUT WE’RE HERE TO TALK ABOUT OUR MULTI-PLAYER EXPERIENCE. I’I HAVE BEEN PLAYING TOO MUCH. BUT TO CREATE THINGS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND TAKE THE GAME BEYOND WHAT IT WAS MEANT TO BE FROM THE BEGINNING THAT IS SOMETHING ELSE AND WE’RE HERE TO DISCUSS THE THINGS THAT WE’VE DONE IN THE PAST AND SPECIFICALLY THIS SEASON WHERE WE’VE PLAYED IN THE SAME WORLD FOR ONE AND A HALF YEARS FOR NOW. WE HAVE A LOT OF THINGS TO TALK ABOUT. BUT IT’S DEFINITELY — YEAH. IF PEOPLE GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY MULTI-PLAYER MINECRAFT YOU NEED TO TAKE IT. PLAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS.>>DO YOU ENJOY MINECRAFT BECAUSE IT’S MINECRAFT OR IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY TO HANG OUT WITH YOUR FRIENDS?>>IT’S BOTH. SUCH A SOCIAL THING AND I HOPE THE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THIS. WE PLAY MINECRAFT BUT WE’RE ALSO HANGING OUT WITH OUR FRIENDS. IT’S A VERY SOCIAL THING.>>THAT IS THE COMMON DENOMINATOR. IT’S ABOUT THE COMMUNITY AND FRIENDSHIP AND ALL OF THE ADDITIONAL STUFF ABOUT MINECRAFT IS JUST ICING ON THE CAKE.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>VERY COOL. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH FOR JOINING US. AS A FINAL REMINDER ALL OF THESE AMAZING PANELS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON MINECRAFT.NET OVER THE WEEKEND. MAKE SURE YOU GO AND HAVE A LOOK.>>ALL RIGHT. SO NEXT I WANT TO LOOK BACK AT LAST YEAR’S BIOME VOTE AND QUICKLY REVIEW WHAT YOU VOTED FOR AND HAVE A SNEAKY PEEK AT WHAT YOU’RE VOTING ON FOR THIS YEAR. SO LET’S TAKE A LOOK.>>WHOA!!!, THAT TUMBLE WEED ALMOST HIT ME.>>THEY DON’T CALL IT THE BAD LANDS BECAUSE OF THEIR GOOD MANNERS. WHAT IS THAT SPOOKY VULTURE DOING?>>VULTURES GET THE LOOT LEFT BEHIND BY UNLUCKY EXPLORERS.>>NOT THE LOOT.>>IS THAT A BOAT?>>YES. THIS BOAT HAS A CHEST BUILT IN FOR ALL OF THE COULD THINGS YOU FIND AT SEA. AND LOOK THE FROG. ACTUALLY WE’RE NOT THAT CLOSE.>>HERE IS A MANGO.>>WE SHOULD GET OUT OF HERE. THAT FROG IS LOOKING AT ME FUNNY.>>OH, MOUNTAINS. SNOW.>>WATCH YOUR STEP. THE SNOW IS SNOWIER THAN BEFORE.>>A GOAT. HE REMINDS ME OF YOU A LITTLE BIT.>>MOUNTAINS ARE GETTING AN UPGRADE. SNOW CAPPED PEEKS. ROMANTIC VIEWS.>>THE GOAT IS GETTING AWAY.>>LET’S GO!>>ALL RIGHT. WELL THERE IS NOTHING DIFFICULT ABOUT THAT CHOICE NOW IS THERE? I HAVE NO IDEA WHICH ONE I WOULD GO FOR. TOTALLY WOULD GO FOR MOUNTAINS. WHEN THE VOTING HAPPENS PLEASE BE PREPARED. YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE A TWITTER ACCOUNT. THERE WILL BE A POLL AT THE TOP SO MAY THE BEST BIOME WIN.>>NOW I’D LIKE TO WELCOME MY NEXT GUEST BENEFIT AND KELLY. WELCOME YOU GUYS. THANK YOU FOR JOINING ME. BEN, YOUR WORK EPITOMIZES WHAT YOU’RE WORK IS DOING IN EDUCATION. YOU’VE BEEN A MINECRAFT PLAYER AND TEACHER SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING. YOU RECEIVED A STEM AWARD WHERE CLASSROOMS AROUND THE WORLD BUILT SOLUTIONS IN MINECRAFT. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ‘OF WHAT THAT MEANS.>>FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS STUDENTS HAVE BEEN WORKING IN MINECRAFT TO BUILD SOLUTIONS FOR THE U.N. SUSTAINABLE GOALS. THERE IS A SINGLE WORLD FILE AND EACH REPRESENTS A PLACE FOR A GOAL AND THEY’VE BEEN BUILDING AND HANDING OFF. SO, IT’S BEEN GOING VERY WELL AND THE TEACHERS AND STUDENTS INVOLVED ARE AWESOME.>>WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF WHAT THE U.N. HAS AS ITS GOALS?>>ONE THAT COMES TO MIND RIGHT AWAY IS IRELAND DID A BUILD FOR THE GOAL 15 WHICH IS LIFE OFF LAND AND THEY DID A BEE SUSTAINABILITY GOAL. THEY WERE THINKING BEFORE BEES TWO YEARS AGO. THEY DID A COOL SIDE PROJECT ABOUT COWS AND THE COW FARTS. IF YOU FEED COWS SEAWEED METHANE EMISSIONS GO DOWN. THERE IS SOME SERIOUS LEARNING HAPPENING IN THIS PROJECT.>>IS THAT TRUE ABOUT FEEDING COWS SEAWEED?>>APPARENTLY METHANE EMISSIONS DROP BY ALMOST 99%.>>YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW AT MINECRAFT EVERY YEAR. I FEEL SO MUCH SMARTER NOW THAT I KNOW ABOUT SUSTAINABLE COW FARTS.>>WHAT IS THE RESPONSE BEEN?>>THE TEACHERS INVOLVED IN THIS SUSTAINABILITY SURE OFFER ARE NO DIFFERENT. THEY ALSO INSPIRED GREAT SOLUTIONS. AGAIN SOLUTIONS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD FOR THESE GOALS AND MAYBE ONE DAY THE UNITED NATIONS WILL GET A CHANCE TO SEE THESE GOALS.>>THAT’S GREAT. IT’S BEEN SUPER COOL HEARING ABOUT STUDENTS IN COUNTRIES ALL OVER THE WORLD TACKLING THE STGs IN MINECRAFT. CONGRATS.>>IT SHOULD BE FUN ONCE IT’S RELEASED VERY SOON.>>DEIDRA LEADS THE MINECRAFT EDUCATION TEAM. IT’S A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN MOJANG AND U.N. HABITAT. CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT YOU’VE DONE IN MINECRAFT EDUCATION THIS YEAR.>>IT’S BEEN A REALLY EXCITING YEAR. BEN’S PROJECT IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF CONNECTING CLASSROOMS AROUND THE WORLD. IN THE LAST YEAR THE THING THAT HAS BEEN EXCITING IS HOW THEY ARE MAKING IT THEIR OWN. MY TEAM VISITED A SCHOOL IN NEW ZEALAND. THAT’S BEEN AMAZING TO SEE HOW ENTHUSIASTIC AND CURIOUS THE STUDENTS ARE WITH THAT AND LAST YEAR WE INTRODUCED END GAME CODING IN MINECRAFT. TEACHING CODING IN BOTHLOCK FOR ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL AND EVEN HIGH SCHOOL. PRETTY SOON WE’LL HAVE A NEW TUTORIAL TO ANNOUNCE.>>IS THAT WHAT WE’RE SEEING IN THE VIDEO RIGHT NOW?>>YEAH. THIS IS OUR BACK TO SCHOOL UPDATE. SO THE STUDENTS CAN ACCESS THE GAME. WE HAVE ADDED SOME FEATURES TO MAKE THE GAME MORE ACCESSIBLE INCLUDING THE IMMERSIVE READER. WHERE STUDENTS WHO HAVE LANGUAGE ACQUISITION DIFFERENCES CAN CHANGE CHARACTER SPACING AND LINE SPACING AND ALSO TRANSLATE IT INTO DIFFERENT LANGUAGES.>>I LOVE THAT THE IMMERSIVE RADER RUNS THE GAMUT OF THE READER SKILL LEVEL BUT CAN TEACH THEM A NEW LANGUAGE. SO HOW DID THE SUSTAINABILITY SHUFFLE — GO THIS YEAR?>>IT WAS GREAT. I KNOW IT’S SOMETIMES SURPRISING HOW MINECRAFT CAN BE USED IN EDUCATIONAL SETTINGS AND THIS IS SUCH A GREAT EXAMPLE. SOMETHING THAT WE DIDN’T PLAN OR THINK WAS POSSIBLE. IT’S AMAZING.>>AWESOME. THIS ACTUALLY GOES OUT TO EITHER OF YOU. ANY ADVICE ON HOW TEACHERS CAN ENGAGED THE MINECRAFT COMMUNITY AND THEN EDUCATE THEMSELVES USING MINECRAFT AS A TEACHING TOOL?>>WE HAVE A LOT OF RESOURCES AVAILABLE. ONE OF THE GREAT WAYS IS HAVING THEIR STUDENTS BRING IT IN TO THEM. WE HAVE LOTS OF LESSON EXAMPLES. SO IF YOU’RE EXCITED TO TRY THIS COME UP WITH SOMETHING THAT YOU’RE LEARNING IN CLASS AND ASK YOUR TEACHER ABOUT IT.>>PEER PRESSURE CAN BE USED FOR GOOD REASONS. THE BEST WAY TO GET MINECRAFT INTO YOUR CLASSROOM IS PEER PRESSURE YOUR TEACHER OR PRINCIPAL UNTIL YOU GET IT IN.>>CORNER THEM IN THE HALLWAY. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH. YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MINECRAFT EDUCATION AT EDUCATE.MINECRAFT.NET.>>SO CELEBRATING MINECRAFT’S 10 YEARS. MOJANG HAS TEAMED UP WITH THE MUSEUM OF POP CULTURE.

IT’S BEEN AN INCREDIBLE YEAR. MEGHAN, WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE HIGHLIGHT OVER THE PAST YEAR?>>I LIKE BUILDING SO THE SCAFFOLDING HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE, RIGHT. IT’S SO FUN AND THE POPCORN EFFECT. IT’S LIKE ASMR. ANY TIME YOU CUT IT DOWN — EXCEPT WHEN I DO UNDERNEATH ME AND THEN I FALL TO MY DEATH. THAT IS THE WORSE. WHEN DO I LEARN? I DON’T THINK IT HAPPENED.>>LIAM, WHAT ABOUT YOU?>>VILLAGERS AND PILL AGERS. BUT I STILL ENJOY MY ROOTS OF CAVING.

I’M YOUR HOST LYDIA WINTERS AND TODAY WE HAVE A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU. IT’S BEEN A REALLY EXCITIN YEAR… IN MAY, WE CELEBRATED 10 YEARS OF MINECRAFT! THAT MEANS HE GAME IS OLDER THAN SOME OF YOU WATCHING! THIS GAME HAS CHANGED THE LIVES OF SO MANY OF YOU WATCHING AND I CAN DEFINITELY SAY IT’S CHANGED MINE. TODAY WE WILL LOOK BACK AT WHERE WE’VE BEEN, WHERE WE ARE NOW, AND WE’LL LOOK INTO THE FUTURE OF ALL THINGS MINECRAFT. IT’S OUR BIGGEST SHOW YET! THERE’S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. HELPING ME OUT THIS YEAR WE HAVE FOUR AMAZING CO-HOSTS WHO ARE BACKSTAGE GETTING READY. SEE YOU ALL SOON! [ APPLAUSE ] EACH OF THEM HAS A GREAT GAME SHOW IN STORE FOR YOU. WE HAVE OUR YEARLY VOTE WHERE YOU GET TO DECIDE WHAT GETS ADDED TO THE GAME NEXT. WE HAVE THREE GREAT CHOICES THIS YEAR… BUT I’LL LET OUR TRUSTY NEWS CORRESPONDENT TELL YOU MORE ABOUT THAT LATER. THIS PAST YEAR WE ANNOUNCED NOT ONE, BUT, TWO NEW MINECRAFT GAMES. MINECRAFT DUNGEONS AND MINECRAFT EARTH. TODAY, YOU ARE GOING TO GET TO SEE LIVE GAMEPLAY OF BOTH GAMES RIGHT HERE ON STAGE! BETWEEN OUR TWO NEW GAMES, OUR 10TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY AND ALL OUR NEW UPDATES, 2019 HAS BEEN A HUGE YEAR FOR MINECRAFT. WE HAVE TOO MUCH NEWS TO WAIT UNTIL THE END OF THE SHOW… SO THIS YEAR WE ARE GETTING RIGHT INTO IT WITH OUR FIRST OF FOUR MINECRAFT UPDATE SEGMENTS. LET’S GET STARTED WITH SOMETHING PEOPLE HAVE BEEN BUZZING ABOUT· [ APPLAUSE ]>>PLEASE WELCOME AGNES AND CORY FROM THE MINECRAFT TEAM. [ APPLAUSE ]>>HELLO AGNES AND CORY. WHAT DO YOU DO ON THE TEAM.>>SO I’M THE LEAD OF THE MINECRAFT GAME PLAY TEAM.>>AND I’M ON THE MINECRAFT PLAY TEAM.>>YOU’RE HERE TO TELL US ABOUT SOMETHING EXCITING AND ADORABLE.>>THE VERY CUTE AND USEFUL BEES.>>LET’S LOOK AT SOME BEES.>>SO YOU CAN SEE HERE THE BEES ARE GOING TO AND FROM THE FLOWERS. POLLINATING THE FLOWERS. TAKING IT BACK TO THE. AS THEY GO YOU CAN SEE THEM DROPPING THE NECTAR POLLEN PARTICLES AND GROWING THE CROPS SO YOU CAN LEARN THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE BEE AND THE FLOWERS AND THE AT HIVES THAT WAY.>>THAT IS AWESOME. THEY ARE A LITTLE BIGGER THAN I THOUGHT. HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON THE SIZE?>>ORIGINALLY WE THOUGHT MAYBE TINY BEES. THEY ARE NOT CUTE ENOUGH. THEY MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE THEY ARE ANNOYING AND SWIMMING IN YOUR YR AND THEN BIG BEES WERE TOO BIG SO WE SETTLED ON THIS SIZE. THE CUTEST BEE.>>PEOPLE LIKE THE SIZE OF THE BEES.>>APPARENTLY SO.>>AND YOU THOUGHT ABOUT HOW THE REAL WORLD AND THE GAME MECHANICS GO TOGETHER. SO LET’S LOOK AT SOME OF THE WAYS YOU’RE TEACHING PEOPLE ABOUT BEES.>>SO YOU CAN SEE HERE THE CAMPFIRE IS BEING PLACED UNDERNEATH THE NESTS IN ORDER TO GATHER THE HONEY AND HONEYCOMB SAFELY. ONE ISSUE ACTUALLY IS THAT IF YOU AS YOU CAN SEE HERE IF YOU HARVEST WITHOUT PUTTING THE CAMPFIRE UNDERNEATH THE BEES GET ANGRY BECAUSE WHY ARE YOU INVADING THEIR HOME AND THAT IS NOT COOL.>>THE SMOKE ALLOWS THEM TO CALM DOWN.>>WHEN THEY STING YOU THEY LOSE THEIR STINGER AND THEY DIE AND THAT IS REALLY SAD BUT THAT IS HOW IT HAPPENS IN REAL LIFE.>>PEOPLE CAN LEARN ABOUT BEES THROUGH MINECRAFT AND THAT IS IMPORTANT TO THE TWO OF YOU.>>WE ARE THINKING CAN WE TEACH SOMETHING AND IN THIS CASE SINCE THE BEE POPULATION IS DECREASING IN THE WORLD WHICH IS A BIG PROBLEM WE REALLY FELT THAT WE WANTED TO TEACH THE PLAYERS SO, THAT IS WHY, ONE OF THE REASONS THAT THE BEES NEED FLOWERS IN ORDER TO PRODUCE HONEY AND TO SPEED UP THE CROP GROWTH BECAUSE THE MORE FLOWERS IN THE REAL WORLD WILL HELP FOR THE BEES AS WELL.>>I ACTUALLY SPENT A LONG TIME GOING OUT RESEARCHING. I MET WITH SEVERAL BEE EXPERTS. I LIVED AS A BEE FOR A WHILE ACTUALLY.>>I FEEL LIKE WE NEED TO SEE SOME FOOTAGE OF THAT.>>WE HAVE THAT ACTUALLY.>>BEE-LIEVE IT. RIGHT?>>THIS IS BEE URBAN.>>BIG EYES.>>OKAY. CORY, IT’S A WRAP FOR TODAY.>>OKAY. IT’S GOOD TO BEE HERE. [ APPLAUSE ]>>SO HOW MUCH DID YOU LEARN ABOUT THE BEES ON YOUR EXPEDITION.>>I LEARNED WAY MORE THAN ANYBODY SHOULD EVER KNOW ABOUT BEES.>>EXCEPT MAYBE THE BEE EXPERTS.>>BUT THERE ARE SO MANY FASCINATING BEE FACTS OUT THERE. THEY WERE INCREDIBLE AND TAUGHT ME EVERYTHING SO I USED A LOT OF THAT KNOWLEDGE TO WORK ON BEES IN MINECRAFT.>>AND THAT IS GOING TO BE A YOU TUBE VIDEO — A DOCUMENTARY% ABOUT THE PROCESS. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO WATCH THAT NEXT WEEK. PERFECT. BUT THERE IS ONE THING THAT NO ONE HAS SEEN IN ANY SNAPSHOTS RELATED TO THE BEES AND WE’RE GOING TO PREMIER IT HERE AT MINECRAFT.>>WE’RE ACTUALLY ADDING A NEW BLOCK AND THAT IS THE HONEY BLOCK.>>LET’S SEE THE HONEY BLOCK.>>SO IT’S VERY STICKY. AND AS YOU CAN SEE YOU CAN’T REALLY JUMP WHEN YOU’RE ON THE HONEY BLOCK. IT’S ALSO STICKY ON THE SIDES SO YOU FALL DOWN VERY SLOWLY.>>ALSO YOU CANNOT REALLY RUN ON IT. YOU CANNOT OUTRUN ANYTHING.>>WE ALSO ADDED SOME INTERESTING PISTON MECHANICS TO IT. SO THE HONEY BLOCK BLOWS A PISTON AND ALSO PLAYERS OR ANIMALS ON IT WILL ALSO MOVING TO THE WITH THE HONEY BLOCKS.>>HOW DO YOU SEE PLAYERS USING THIS.>>IT WILL BE SUPER COOL IF THEY CARRY A PLATFORM GAME MAP AND THE PLAYERS HAVE TO JUMP AND MOVE AROUND. THAT COULD BE REALLY FUN.>>AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO PARKOUR MAPS. ALSO THE INABILITY ONCE YOU JUMP DOWN YOU CANNOT JUMP BACK UP. IF THERE IS A ONE BLOCK DIFFERENCE YOU GO BACK AND FORTH BUT WITH THE HONEY BLOCK YOU WOULD BE STUCK.>>THATHAT’S AMAZING! [ APPLAUSE ]>>AND LAST THING. AGNES I KNOW CORY HAS TAPE UP A BIG HOBBY.>>OKAY. NOW YOU STARTED DOING IT TOO BUT CORY — WHAT IS CORY’S HOBBY.>>SO FOR MONTHS EVERY DAY THERE IS AT LEAST 10 PROBABLY MORE LIKE A HUNDRED BEE PUNS EVERY DAY AT THE OFFICE.>>CORY, THEN TO CLOSE OUT THE BEE SECTION AT MINECON LIVE 2019. CAN YOU GIVE US A BEE PUN.>>THAT IS PRETTY SITUATIONAL.O. I CANNOT JUST WING IT AND BEE CREATIVE LIKE THAT. [ APPLAUSE ]>>THERE WE HAVE IT.

WHO DO YOU THINK WILL WIN?>>US FOR SURE.>>WE’LL SEE.>>I’M A LITTLE BIASED SO MAYBE MOJANG. I KNOW THAT ONE OF THE GAMES HAS BEEN MAKING THE CO-HOSTS A BIT NERVOUS. I THINK THAT IS YOUR GAME MARIEL.>>THAT WOULD BE ME BUT THEY SHOULDN’T BE TOO SCARED. THERE MAY BE SOME CRAZY THINGS COMING THEIR WAY. SCOTT, I HEARD YOU HAVE SOME SPECIAL GUESTS IN YOUR SEGMENT?

THE AIM OF THE GAME IS TO COLLECT AS MANY DIAMONDS AS THEY CAN FROM EACH OF THE BLOCKS THAT ARE IN FRONT OF THEM. NOW EACH BLOCK HAS MULTIPLE DIAMONDS INSIDE, BUT I HAVE ALSO INCLUDED A FEEEW SURPRISES… THEY CAN BE GOOD THEY CAN BE BAD BUT THAT IS FOR OUR CONTESTANTS TO FIND OUT.

EVERYBODY IS ROOTING FOR YOU.>>THAT IS TIME. LAST CHANCE. YOU’RE NOT DOING SO GREAT.>>I CAN’T FEEL MY ARMS.>>THIS ONE SHOULD BE A LOT EASIER.

WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO WIN?>>ME,.>>ME.>>YOU’RE GOING TO VOTE FOR YOURSELF, REALLY?>>WE HAVE A WINNER AND I’M HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT MASUO IS THE WINNER!>>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PARTICIPATING. THIS HAS BEEN DIGGING FOR DIAMONDS. [ APPLAUSE ]>>I’M VU BUI YOUR VOTE CORRESPONDENT. ALL OF YOU WILL VOTE ON WHICH MINECRAFT BIOME IS UPDATED FIRST WITH SOME GREAT NEW FEATURES. LAST YEAR THE MIGHTY TAIGA BIOME WON YOUR VOTE IN A LANDSLIDE VICTORY. WHICH WAS SURPRISING SINCE LANDSLIDES THEMSELVES ARE NOT VERY COMMON IN THE TAIGA BIOME. I SUPPOSE PEOPLE COULDN’T RESIST THE SWEET ALLURE OF THE BERRIES. THIS YEAR WE HAVE A NEW SET OF BIOMES TO CHOOSE FROM. THERE ARE OVER 70 DIFFERENT BIOMES IN MINECRAFT SO EVEN CHOOSING WHICH ONE YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM WAS A MAJOR TASK FOR THE TEAM BUT THEY PERSEVERED AND BROUGHT THREE DELIGHTFUL CHOICES. AS USUAL TINY AGNES AND TINY JENS WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH EACH OF THE OPTIONS. AND TO INTRODUCE THEM WE HAVE TINY VU. TAKE IT AWAY LITTLE GUY.>>THANKS, GIANT VU.>>WAIT. I’M NOT A GIANT. A JUST AVERAGE SIZE. YOU’RE QUITE TINY.>>TECHNICALLY I’M JUST A BUNCH OF PIXELS SO I’M SCALABLE TO ANY SIZE BUT I SUPPOSE IT’S ALL JUST PERSPECTIVE. ANY WAY ON TO THE BIOMES. FIRST UP WE HAVE THE BAD LANDS. WHOLE THAT TUMBLE WEED ALMOST HIT ME.>>WELL THEY DON’T CALL IT THE BAD LANDS BECAUSE OF THEIR GOOD MANNERS.>>THIS NEW CACTUS IS FANCY.>>OUCH!!>>WHAT IS THAT SPOOKY VULTURE DOING.>>THEY GET THE LOOT LEFT BEHIND BY UNLUCKY EXPLORERS.>>NOT THE LOOT.>>IS THAT A BOAT?>>YES. THIS BOAT HAS A CHEST BUILT IN FOR ALL OF THE COOL THINGS YOU FIND AT SEA. AND LOOK OUR NEW FRIEND THE FROG. EEEWWH!. ACTUALLY WE’RE NOT THAT CLOSE.>>HERE IS A MANGO.>>WE SHOULD GET OUT OF HERE. THAT FROG IS LOOKING AT ME FUNNY.>>UH!>>OH, MOUNTAINS. SNOW.>>WATCH YOUR STEP. THE SNOW IS SNOWIER THAN BEFORE.>>A GOAT. HE REMINDS ME OF YOU A LITTLE BIT.>>MOUNTAINS ARE GETTING AN UPGRADE. JAGGED CLIFFS. SNOW CAPPED PEEKS. ROMANTIC VIEWS.>>THE GOAT IS GETTING AWAY.>>LET’S GO. WOW! ALL THREE BIOMES ARE AMAZING BUT YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE. AND WHICHEVER YOU DO WILL GO INTO THE GAME. BACK TO YOU, GIANT VU.>>SERIOUSLY, I AM NOT A GIANT. I JUST SEEM GIANT TO YOU JUST LIKE YOU SEEM TINY TO ME. ALTHOUGH WHO IS TO SAY. MAYBE WE’RE JUST BOTH INFINITELY SCALABLE. LAST YEAR BEFORE THE SHOW STARTED I WAS SURE I KNEW WHICH BIOME WOULD WIN BUT I WAS WRONG. THIS YEAR I HAVE NO IDEA. THEY ARE ALL JUST SO GREAT SO HERE IS HOW TO VOTE. FIRST MAKE SURE YOU HAVE REGISTERED FOR A TWITTER ACCOUNT AND LOG ON TO TWITTER. LATER IN THE SHOW YOU WILL NEED TO GO TO THE MINECRAFT TWITTER ACCOUNT. WHERE WE POST THE VOTING POLL CLICK ON THE BIOME YOU WANT TO WIN. THERE WILL BE TWO ROUNDS. FOR NOW LET THE DEBATE BEGIN BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS AND YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR PETS SO YOU CAN DECIDE WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE BIOME TO BE UPDATED FIRST. WITH SOME FANTASTIC NEW FEATURES. AND NOW LET’S HEAD OVER TO HEAR ABOUT SCRIPTING AND MINECRAFT FROM JASON AND QUINN.>>WELCOME JASON AND QUINN. YOU’RE GOING TO TELL US ABOUT THE AMAZING NEW CREATOR TOOLS.>>THANKS, LYDIA. I RUN THE MINECRAFT MARKETPLACE PARTNER PROGRAM.>>AND JASON, WHAT ABOUT YOU?>>I’M A DEVELOPER ON THE BED RAHM DEVELOPER TEAM.>>QUINN WHAT IS MARKETPLACE.>>IT’S A GREAT PLACE WHERE YOU CAN BUY — AND THERE IS ALSO FREE CONTENT. SKINS, TEXTURES, WORK UPS.>>THAT IS AWESOME.>>AND TODAY YOU’RE GOING THE TELL US ABOUT SCRIPTING.>>SCRIPTING IS A WAY FOR CREATORS TO ADD THINGS TO THE GAME THAT THE DEVELOPERS OF THE GAME DIDN’T ACTUALLY PLAN FOR. SO WE DO A LOT OF COOL THINGS IN ADD ONS WHERE PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO TAKE BEHAVIORS FROM THE VANILLA GAME AND MIX THEM UP TO GET COOL THINGS BUT WITH SCRIPTING THEY CAN DO LOTS OF STUFF THAT YOU WOULD NEVER SEE IN THE VANILLA GAME.>>I HEARD YOU WERE QUITE INSPIRED BY OUR PARTNER IN CHINA.>>THEY STARTED DOING SOME SCRIPTING SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND THEY’VE GOT SOME STUFF. LIKE WE HAVE TO HAVE THAT. SO WE STARTED HOOKING UP. WE’VE DONE SOME DIFFERENT TECH DIRECTIONs BUT IT WAS INSPIRED BY THEM.>>YOU HAVE SOME THINGS TO SHOW WITH EDITOR TOOLS. SO LET’S TAKE A LOOK.>>THIS FIRST ONE — THE EDITOR STICK. IT ALLOWS YOU TO TAKE ANY BLOCK AND CHANGE ANY PARAMETERS. YOU CAN CHANGE IT FROM BEING YELLOW TO BLUE AND YOU CAN CHANGE ANY OF THE DIFFERENT ITEMS. WE CAN LOOK AT THE WOOD AND CHANGE IT FROM OAK TO BIRCH. INSTEAD OF REPLACING THE BLOCK YOU CAN GO IN AND CHANGE THE PARAMETERS. SO IT SAVES TIME. YOU CAN CHANGE THE CROPS TO BE FULLY GROWN.>>HE JUST STOLE OUR BEATS.>>SOMEONE WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THAT EDITOR TOOL.>>MAYBE WE SHOULD GET RID OF THE MOBS.>>WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT FOR CREATORS TO MOVE THE PROCESS ALONG FASTER?>>SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO NOT JUST REPLACE THE BLOCK. YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT OUT AND PUT IT IN. OH. I ACTUALLY WANTED TO BE A DIFFERENT COLOR. IT ALLOWS YOU TO QUICKLY MAKE THE SMALL TWEAK MODIFICATIONS FFOR A POLISHED MAP.>>AND TRY DIFFERENT WAYS TO SEE HOW IT LOOKS. AND ALSO SOME THINGS THAT SPEED UP THE PROCESS SIGNIFICANTLY.>>A LOT OF BUILDS THEY DON’T JUST WANT TO DO A SINGLE BLOCK BY BLOCK CHANGE. THEY WANT MUCH QUICKER STUFF.>>SO WE’VE GOT QUICKER CHANGES.>>HERE IS A TnT ONE. WHERE YOU CAN QUICKLY REMOVE LARGE CHUNKS. GO THROUGH AND MAKE BIG HOLES AND IT’S A GREAT WAY TO ROUGH OUT AN AREA. AND GET IT CLOSE TO WHAT YOU WANT AND THEN COME IN AND FINE-TUNE IT AND HERE IS ONE THAT MAKES A BIG HALLWAY. SO IMAGINE HOW LONG THAT WOULD TAKE DESTROYING BLOCK BY BLOCK AND WHEN YOU HAVE THESE WORLDS THAT ARE BIGGER. LIKE THIS COULD BE A HUGE TIME SAVER.>>AND SOMETIMES IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BUILD A HOUSE BLOCK BY BLOCK YOU CAN MAKE A TnT THAT DOES IT FOR YOU. [ LAUGHTER ] [ APPLAUSE ] AND HERE THIS ONE IS GREAT TOO BECAUSE IT’S MINECRAFT. THIS IS A WAY TO BUILD YOUR HOUSE IN A MINECRAFTY WAY. IT’S A TnT BLOCK THAT EXPLODES AND MAKES IT FOR YOU. I LIKE THIS HOMEY FEEL. THE CABIN.>>IT ALLOWS YOU IF YOU’RE SCRIPTING THEN SUDDENLY YOU COULD USE THOSE HOUSES AND PUT THEM EVERYWHERE FOR A BUILD.>>YOU COULD MAKE A WHOLE TOWN POP-UP. IT’S A REALLY FUN WAY.>>THOSE EDITOR TOOLS ARE AWESOME. [ CHEERING ] [ APPLAUSE ]>>AND YOU ALSO HAVE SOME TOOLS THAT ARE HELPING WITH GAME PLAY EXPERIENCE.>>THIS IS WHERE I GET MOST EXCITED WITH. YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THINGS THAT CHANGE THE ENTIRE GAME PLAY OF MINECRAFT AND NOT JUST RELYING ON THE VANILLA BEHAVIORS BUT MAKE YOUR OWN. WE’LL SHOW A REALLY COOL TAKE ON THAT.>>WE JUST — THE CREATE OR MADE THIS ROPE BRIDGE. YOU CAN GO THROUGH AND AIM TO ANOTHER POINT AND IT WILL BUILD A BRIDGE FOR YOU. ENDERMAN — A TELA PORT. THIS IS AN ABILITY, THEY WENT AND MADE AND YOU COULD AIM AND IT WILL CAST YOU TO THAT POINT. KIND OF A SUPER HERO MAP.>>IT GIVES YOU THIS MAGIC MISSILE BLAST WHERE YOU CAN TAKE OUT THE PESKY SKELETONS THAT ARE SHOOTING AT YOU. YOU CAN CHANGE THE ENTIRE WAY THAT YOU CAN EXPLORE THE WORLD. YOU CAN BUILD A CITY. AND THERE IS ANOTHER FEATURE OF THIS ONE TOO L THERE IS THIS BIG SHIELD WHERE YOU CAN PUT UP BLOCKS WITH ARROWS.>>VERY COOL.>>THERE IS A SHIELD THAT KIND OF PROTECTS YOU FOR 30 SECONDS.>>CREATORS CAN USE THIS TO CREATE NEW AND INTERESTING GAME EXPERIENCES FOR PLAYERS.>>THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.>>AND YOU HAVE ONE OTHER COOL THING TO SHOW US WITH SCRIPTING.>>WE’VE BEEN WORKING ON, MINECRAFT HAS HAD THE ABILITY TO CHANGE SKINS FOR A LONG TIME. THE TEXTURE ON THE MODEL. WE WERE DATA DRIVING WHERE THEY COULD CHANGE THINGS. CREATORS CAN CHANGE MORE THAN JUST THE TEXTURES. WE WANT THEM TO CHANGE THE 3-D MODELS AND ADD SPECIAL EFFECTS ETC. ETC. SO I HAVE A VIDEO TO SHOW OFF SOME OF THE STUFF I BUILT. I THINK PENGUINS ARE COOL. I QUICKLY KNOCKED OUT A PENGUIN. THEY ARE NOT COMING TO MINECRAFT. BUT YOU CAN SEE HE HAS GOT CUSTOM ANIMATIONS AND HE MOVES VERY DIFFERENT THAN STEVE AND I REPLACED THE SPRINT ANIMATION WITH A BELLY SLIDE. THIS WAS A HAPPY ACCIDENT. IT KIND OF HELPS SELL THE SLIDE ANIMATION.>>WHAT KIND OF GAME ARE YOU HOPING CREATORS MAKE WITH THE DATA DRIVEN PLAYER CHANGE.>>I HAD THIS VISION OF — I WANT SOMEONE TO GO MAKE A RAPATORE THAT GOES AROUND AND — EATS SOMETHING. I DON’T HAVE THE ART SKILLS TO MAKE THE RAPTOR.>>YOUR PENGUIN WAS PRETTY CUTE THOUGH.>>I THINK A RACING GAME WHERE YOU CAN TRANSFORM THE PLAYER INTO A SWEET CAR AND CUSTOMIZE IT AND HAVE A BUNCH OF ANIMATIONS.>>AND THE CARS ARE ALL PENGUINS.>>PENGUINS RIDING RAPTORS.>>HOW CAN PEOPLE EXPERIMENT.>>IT’S AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD AND THERE IS A BUNCH OF TUTORIALS ON THE WIKI. YOU CAN MESS AROUND WITH IT YOURSELF.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH QUINN AND JASON. [ APPLAUSE ]>>SPEAKING OF COOL TECH AS SOME OF YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD WE HAVE AN EXCITING UPDATE ON WINDOWS 10. RAYTRACING. IT WILL BE COMING SOON AND AVAILABLE FOR MINECRAFT OFF WINDOWS 10 FOR DIRECT X CAPABLE GPUs. LET’S CHECK IT OUT.>>WELCOME EVERYONE. EVERY LET’S GET EXCITED FOR MINED GAMES. LET’S WELCOME OUR TWO OF TEAMS AND SEE IF THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES. HELLO TEAM ZOMBIE. WE HAVE SHELBY AND MARIEL. HOW ARE YOU FEELING?>>CONFIDENT.>>GOOD. LIKE THE CONFIDENCE.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] LET’S LOOK AT A PREVIEW AT SOME OF THE AWESOME CONTENT COMING TO REALMS PLUS. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>NOW I’M JOINED BY JARED AND SARAH.>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING US.>>WHAT DO YOU DO ON THE TEAM.>>I’M AN ART LEAD.>>AND I’M A GAME DESIGNER.>>WE’RE GOING TO GET RIGHT IN TO IT.>>THE CHARACTER CREATOR IS FUN BECAUSE THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF DIFFERENT ASPECT THAT YOU CAN CHANGE. YOUR SKIN TONE AND TEXTURE. YOUR EYES. YOUR MOUTH AND HAIR AND CHANGE THE COLOR AND THEN LAY YOUR CLOTHES ON TOP OF IT.>>AS WE’RE PUTTING MINECRAFT IN THE REAL WORLD WE WANTED A NEW WAY TO LET YOU PUT YOURSELF IN THE GAME AND REPRESENT YOU. SO ADDING MORE FLEXIBILITY TO BUILD A CHARACTER PIECE BY PIECE. THIS BUILDS OFF THE HISTORY OF PLAYERS. LIKE BUILDING THEIR OWN SKINS AND LETTING YOU DO THAT INSIDE THE GAME. AND ONE OF THE COOL THINGS HERE IS DOING LIMB REPLACEMENTS OR DIFFERENT STUFF THAT LETS YOU REPRESENT WHAT YOU WANT TO LOOK LIKE.>>AND ALL OF THOSE PLAYERS GET AUTOMATICALLY.>>ALL OF THAT STUFF COMES FOR EVERYBODY TO START BUILDING THEIR CHARACTER AUTOMATICALLY.>>THAT IS COOL. [ CHEERING ] [ APPLAUSE ]>>WHY WAS IT IMPORTANT TO YOU TO ADD THINGS LIKE PROSTHETICS AND DIFFERENT BODY SHAPES.>>BECAUSE MINECRAFT PLAYERS ARE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE. RIGHT? AND IT’S ALWAYS FUN TO SEE A PART OF YOURSELF IN THE GAME SO WE WANTED TO INCLUDE AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.>>THAT IS AS YOU SOME AND HOW MANY CHARACTERS CAN YOU HAVE?>>UP TO FIVE CHARACTERS AND WE WANTED YOU TO HAVE THAT FLEXIBILITY TO BUILD. ONE LOOK WHEN YOU’RE FARMING AND PLAYING THAT ROLE WITH YOUR FRIENDS OR MAYBE SOMETHING COMPETITIVE YOU MIGHT WANT TO BE MORE INTIMIDATING. ALL DIFFERENT CLOTHING OPTIONS AND TRYING TO PUT SOME OF THE COOLEST IDEAS. SHOWING OFF WHAT IS POSSIBLE WITH THIS. IT’S GOOD TO NOTE IT’S JUST COSMETIC SELF-EXPRESSION STUFF. IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE WAY YOU PLAY. IT’S JUST HOW YOU LOOK.>>THAT’S AWESOME AND YOU SAID THAT THIS IS INSPIRED BY MINECRAFT EARTH. HOW DOES IT FIT IN WITH MINECRAFT EARTH WITH A MOB OF ME.>>WHEN YOU’RE IN MINECRAFT EARTH THERE IS A MODE CALLED BUILD MODE. AND THEN I CAN PUT A REPRESENTATION OF MYSELF IN THE WORLD THAT I’M CREATING. IT MAKES THE WORLD MORE ALIVE. IF I PUT A CHARACTER IN THERE AND WATCH HIM WONDER AROUND AND IT’S SUPER DELIGHTFUL ESPECIALLY WHEN HE WALKS OFF THE BUILD PLATE AND TAKES A LOOK AT MY COFFEE CUP.>>IT’S A TINY VERSION. SO YOU’RE GOING TO SHOW US A FEW THINGS. ONE IS ACHIEVEMENTS AND HOW YOU GET SPECIAL THINGS FOR ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE GAME.>>THIS IS WHAT THAT WILL COME SLIGHTLY AFTER THE LAUNCH. BUT WE WANT TO LET PLAYERS SHOW OFF. YOU CAN EARN A LUMBERJACK SHIRT WHEN YOU CHOP DOWN A TREE FOR THE FIRST TIME. AND THEN IF YOU PLAY THE GAME A LONG TIME WE’LL GIVE YOU LONG HAIR AND BEARD THAT YOU CAN EQUIP TO YOU. AND THIS IS COOL. ALL OF THESE THINGS. WE’LL HAVE STUFF IN MINECRAFT THAT YOU CAN EARN THROUGH CHALLENGES AND ACHIEVEMENTS.>>AWESOME. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>AND THE NEXT THING WE’LL JUMP RIGHT IN TO BECAUSE I KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE VERY EXCITED TO HEAR ABOUT IT.>>FOR SURE. TWO THINGS ARE CAPES ARE COMING TO THE CHARACTER CREATOR. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT AND EMOTES. DANCE AND WAVE AND HAVE A CAPE AND ALSO IF YOU HAVE ANY CUSTOM SKINS OR SKINS THAT YOU’VE LOVED FOR A LONG TIME. IT WILL ALL WORK WITH THAT. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>AND HOW WILL PEOPLE GET THESE AWESOME CAPES?>>THEY CAN GRAB THEM RIGHT NOW IN THE MARKETPLACE FOR FREE. THERE IS ONE AVAILABLE FOR EVERYBODY IF YOU WANT TO GET IT. RIGHT NOW IT ATTACHES TO THE SKINS. BUT WHEN IT LAUNCHES YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ATTACH IT TO ANY OF THE SKINS FROM THE PASTOR WITH A NEW CHARACTER THAT YOU BUILD.>>AWESOME. [ APPLAUSE ]>>THANK YOU SO MUCH SARAH AND JARED. CHARACTER CREATOR LOOKS AMAZING. [ APPLAUSE ] LAST YEAR WE PREMIERED OUR SERIES RUNNING ON OUR YOU TUBE CHANNEL. EACH YEAR WE FEATURE A DIFFERENT MINECRAFTER. TODAY YOU’LL MEET JAMES DELANEY.>>MY NAME IS JAMES DELANEY AND I’M MANAGING DIRECTOR OF A COMPANY. I STARTED PLAYING MINECRAFT WHEN I WAS ABOUT 11 OR 12 YEARS OLD. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS A STUPID THING BUT AFTER A FEW HOURS I REALLY GOT INTO THE SC– INTO THECREATIVE MODE. I FOUNDED BLOCK WORKS. A TEAM OF PEOPLE WITH ME AND THREE OTHER FRIENDS THAT I MET ON-LINE. SO AT BLOCK WORKS WE WORK ON TWO MAIN AREAS. THE MARKETPLACE AS WELL AS ENGAGEMENT AND EDUCATIONAL PROJECTS. THOSE PROJECTS WE BUILD WORLDS FOR SCHOOLS, MUSEUMS, GALLERIES AND ALSO A LOT OF WORK WITH NONPROFITS AND CHARITIES AND EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. SO WE HAVE ABOUT 30 MEMBERS WHO ALL WORK FROM HOME FROM ABOUT 20 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES BUT WE ALL CONNECT TO THE SAME MINECRAFT SERVER SO WE’RE ALL WORKING IN THIS SAME VIRTUAL OFFICE TOGETHER IN THE SAME DIGITAL SPACE. SO IF SOMEONE BUILDS SOMETHING IN ONE AREA OF THE WORLD AND OTHERS REACT AND RESPOND IN WHAT THEY BUILD. FOR MY FINAL YEAR THESIS AT UNIVERSITY I LOOKED AT DEMOCRACY AND VIDEO GAMES SPECIFICALLY WITH A BIG EXAM CHAPTER ON MINECRAFT AND URBAN DESIGN AND HOW MINECRAFT COULD HELP CITIES AND COMMUNITIES TAKE PART IN THE PLANNING PROCESS WHICH LED ME TO JOIN THE BOARD OF BLOCK BY BLOCK IN 2019. PART OF THE REASON BLOCK BY BLOCK USES MINECRAFT IS BECAUSE IT’S A VERY DEMOCRATIC TOOL AND RATHER THAN AN ARCHITECT OR CITY OFFICIAL TELLING WHAT DESIGN CAN BE ANYONE CAN USE MINECRAFT TO EXPLAIN AND VISUALIZE THEIR OWN IDEAS IN A FULLY DEMOCRATIC ENVIRONMENT. SO BUILDINGS LIKE THIS CATHEDRAL HERE IN SIENA DIDN’T HAVE JUST ONE ARCHITECT AND ONE PERSON WITH AN IDEA BUT WERE BUILT BY A GROUP OF MASTER CRAFTS MEN EACH EMPHASIZING THE DESIGN AS THEY WERE BUILDING IT AND MINECRAFT IS SIMILAR IN THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ONE PLAN THAT EVERYONE FOLLOWS. BUT YOU HAVE MULTIPLE PEOPLE, MULTIPLE CRAFTERS BUILDING IN THE SAME WORLD USING THEIR EXPERIENCE AND RERESPONDING AT THE SAME TIME. AND MAYBE THIS IS WHAT THAT ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN CAN LEARN FROM MINECRAFT. [ APPLAUSE ]>>HI. MY NAME IS MASUO AND I CAME UP WITH AN EXCITING GAME THAT I WANT TO PLAY WITH YOU TODAY. I’M SURE YOU ARE ALL EXCITED ABOUT BEES COMING TO MINECRAFT, SO THIS NEXT GAME WILL BE ALL ABOUT THEM! AND THE NAME OF THE GAME IS HACHI HACHI BOON BOON!!! SO LET ME EXPLAIN THE RULES. HERE YOU CAN SEE A BEAUTIFUL FLOWER BED, RIGHT? TWO OF OUR PLAYERS WILL BECOME BEES AND THEIR TASK IS TO COLLECT AS MUCH POLLEN FROM THE FLOWERS AS THEY CAN. LIKE THIS.>>HOW FAR ARE YOU?>>GOOD.>>ARE YOU SCARED?>>LITTLE BIT.>>THEY WILL HAVE TO FLY OVER HERE AFTER COLLECTING POLLEN … AND HAND IT OVER TO THEIR TEAMMATES ON THE OTHER SIDE WHO WILL PUT THE POLLEN INTO THE HONEYCOMBS. LIKE THIS! IT’S VERY SIMPLE. OKAY, LET’S GO. THEY ARE COLLECTING POLLEN. GOOD. GOOD. THEY ARE COLLECTING GOOD. THEY ARE GOOD! NICE! IT LOOKS DIFFICULT BUT THEY ARE GOOD. LET’S GO BACK! HONESTLY IT WAS TOO SIMPLE. SO LET’S TRY A MORE DIFFICULT VERSION. ARE YOU READY?>>YEP.>>ARE YOU READY?>>YES.>>GO!>>OH, IT’S DIFFICULT. BUT THEY ARE GOOD. LET ME SEE.>>THEY ARE MOVING OUT.>>IT WAS AWESOME! THEY COLLECTED SO MUCH. YEAH. YOU ARE AWESOME. THEY COLLECTED A LOT. MINECRAFT IS ALL ABOUT COLLABORATION. SO IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO WINS. THAT IS IT FROM ME AND HACHI HACHI BOON BOON! BYE!>>WOW. WE’VE SEEN AMAZING DISCUSSIONS ON WHICH BIOME WILL BE UPDATED FIRST AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF YOU HAVE REGISTERED YOUR VOTES. NOW FOR THAT BITTERSWEET MOMENT TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO ONE OF YOUR CHOICES TO SET THE STAGE FOR THE FINAL TWO. UNFORTUNATELY THE BAD LANDS RECEIVED THE LEAST AMOUNT OF VOTES AND WON’T MAKE IT TO ROUND TWO. THE GOOD NEWS IS ALL OF YOU BAD LAND SUPPORTERS GET TO PICK AGAIN. WHAT WILL IT BE. TIME TO VOTE AGAIN AND NOW YOU’RE VOTING BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS AND THE SWAMP. THE MOUNTAINS HAD THE MAJORITY OF THE VOTES JUST BY A BIT. BUT WILL IT STILL HOLD ITS LEAD AND BECOME THE NEXT BIOME TO BE UPDATED IN MINECRAFT. YOU GET TO DECIDE SO MAKE SURE TO GO TO TWITTER AND LOG IN AND CLICK ON THE NEW POLL THAT WAS JUST POSTED TO THE MINECRAFT ACCOUNT. THIS IS EXCITING FOLKS. MAKE YOUR MARK ON THE FUTURE OF MINECRAFT. [ APPLAUSE ]>>SO WHILE YOU’RE FIGURING OUT YOUR FINAL CHOICE FOR THIS YEAR’S BIOME VOTE LET’S TALK ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE GAME THAT YOU HAVE NOT EVEN PLAYED YET. MINECRAFT DUNGEONS. JOINING ME IS DAVID, THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF MINECRAFT DUNGEONS. WELCOME TO THE SHOW.>>WHY DON’T YOU TELL OUR COMMUNITY ALL ABOUT THIS NEW GAME?>>I WILL. MINECRAFT DUNGEONS IS A BRAND-NEW GAME DEVELOPED BY A DEDICATED TEAM OF ABOUT 20 PEOPLE IN MOJANG AND STOCKHOLM. AN ACTION ADVENTURE GAME. IT FOCUSES ON COMBAT AND ADVENTURE. IT’S A VERY DIFFERENT GAME PLAY THAN THE MINECRAFT WE ALL KNOW AND LOVE. THE PLAYERS THEY RUN IN MISSION TO DEFEAT THE EVIL ARCH ILLAGER. THEY COLLECT COOL LOOT TO HELP THEM IN THEIR ADVENTURES. AND SINCE EVERY ADVENTURE HAS A BEGINNING WE WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME THE OPENING CINEMATIC FOR MINECRAFT DUNGEONS.>>IT WAS A TIME OF GREAT ADVENTURE. AND DANGER. SHUNNED BY HIS KIN — AN ILLAGE RUMMAGES THE LAND SEEKING A NEW HOME BUT ALL HE FOUND WAS HATRED. HE WONDERED BLIND TO WHAT EVER END. UNTIL AT LONG LAST THE ILLAGER FOUND SOMETHING. THAT WOULD CHANGE HIM FOREVER. THE ALL OF DOMINANCE. CORRUPTED BY EVIL. DRIVEN BY VENGEANCE HE MADE THEM ALL BOW BEFORE HIM AND IF THEY DID NOT BOW THEY WOULD FALL. THE ILLAGERS RAIDED THE LAND. THE PURITY OF HEART — TO STAND AGAINST THE ARCH ILLAGER’S REIGN OF TERROR. WELL, NOT THAT ONE. BUT MAYBE — YOU. [ APPLAUSE ] [ CHEERING ]>>THAT WAS AMAZING.>>PRETTY COOL. RIGHT? NOW WE KNOW WHY THE PLAYERS ARE ON THEIR ADVENTURES. THE GAME IS DESIGNED TO BE PLAYED WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOU JUST THAT. YOU ALL KNOW MASUO AND WE HAVE THE GAME DIRECTOR FROM MINECRAFT DUNGEONS HERE ON THE COUCH AND THEY WILL SHOW YOU IN COUCH CO-OP.>>SO WHAT ARE WE SEEING HERE?>>YES. THIS IS ACTUALLY FIRST TIME WE’VE SHOWN THIS. THIS IS CALLED CREEPER WOODS. A FOREST AREA.>>I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY CREEPERS YET.>>NO THEY ARE FURTHER DOWN THE LINE.>>YOU SEE SOME OTHER MOBS HERE THAT YOU SHOULD RECOGNIZE FROM YOUR MINECRAFT. ZOMBIES AND SKELETONS AND ALL SORTS OF INTERESTING THINGS.>>I LIKE THAT IT’S JUST LIKE MINECRAFT BUT IT’S DIFFERENT. BUT EVERYTHING LOOKS FAMILIAR.>>THE BEHAVIORS ARE WHAT YOU EXPECT. THERE ARE NO STRANGE SURPRISES.>>BUT VISUALLY IT’S QUITE SURPRISING.>>YOU SEE THE LIGHTNING BOLTS? THAT IS ONE OF THE PLAYERS THAT HAS AN ENCHANTED SWORD THAT DOES A THUNDERING ENCHANTMENT.>>WHAT IS THAT LLAMA WITH THE ARROW IN HIS HEAD.>>THE LLAMA — THAT CAN BE — SUMMONED BY ONE OF THE ARTIFACTS. AND TO THE RIGHT YOU SEE A YELLOW SYMBOL. THAT IS THE WONDERFUL WHEAT. THAT SUMMONS THE LLAMA AND THE LLAMA HELPS YOU IN BATTLE.>>THERE ARE SOME LARGER MOBS HERE.>>TO GIVE YOU A BIT MORE OF A CHALLENGE THEY HAVE MORE ARMOR AND EXTRA WEAPONS.>>THIS IS GREAT.>>SO AS YOU SEE THEY ARE EXPLORING. THEY USED ANOTHER ARTIFACT. THE WIND HORN AND IT PUSHES MOBS AWAY. YOU CAN PICK UP THESE COOL THINGS ON THESE LEVELS AND EQUIP THEM AS YOU SEE FIT AND ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO MENTION THAT ALLLL OF THESE LEVELS ARE RANDOM GENERATED SO YOU CAN EXPLORE THEM EVERY TIME YOU PLAY THROUGH THE SAME ONE. IT WILL LOOK AND FEEL DIFFERENT.>>SO IT WILL BE DIFFERENT EACH TIME YOU PLAY.>>THAT IS CORRECT. SO NOW I THINK WE’RE APPROACHING SPIDERS. LOTS OF THEM. THAT WAS A FIREWORKS ARROW.>>THERE IS A PIG WITH A CHEST ON IT.>>OF COURSE. WE CALL THAT THE PIGGY BANK. THIS GAME IS ALL ABOUT LOOT. SO IF YOU MANAGE TO FIND ONE OF THOSE AND GET THIS HELP FROM IT. IT DROPS LOTS OF COOL LOOT AND THAT YOU CAN EQUIP JUST AS YOU SEE. NOW THEY ARE COMING UP TO A DIFFICULT PART. SO LET’S WELCOME MARIEL. [ APPLAUSE ]>>YOU CAN JOIN THIS GAME AT IN TIME AND PLAY UP TO FOUR PLAYERS TOGETHER. THE GAME SCALE’S DIFFICULTY DEPENDS ON HOW MANY PLAYERS YOU HAVE. SO LET’S SEE HOW THEY DO.>>WHEN YOU JOIN IMMEDIATELY DIFFICULTY SCALES UP.>>YEP.>>AND IF YOU LEAVE?>>SCALES DOWN. SO IF YOU NEED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM YOU CAN DO THAT. UPPER RIGHT CORNER YOU SEE THE PROJECT OF WHAT THEY ARE TO DO. THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO SAVE THE VILLAGERS. AND AS YOU SEE THERE ARE MORE MOBS NOW. THAT IS GOING TO BE A TRICKY TnT. SOMEONE WAS KNOCKED DOWN.>>I LOVE THE HUGE EFFECTS OF SOME HALF THESE THINGS. WHAT WAS THAT?>>THAT IS A HEALING TOTEM. ANYTHING INSIDE GETS EXTRA HELP. THE GAME IS REALLY DESIGNED TO BE FUN TO PLAY TOGETHER. SO IF SOMEONE IS KNOCKED DOWN OTHER PEOPLE CAN HELP EACH OTHER UP AND BRING THEM BACK INTO BATTLE.>>SO IT MAKES SENSE TO WORK TOGETHER.>>AND ALSO IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT THE PLAYER CHARACTERS.>>SO MUCH STUFF GOING ON.>>IF YOU LOOK BELOW THE PLAYER CHARACTERS THERE IS A SQUARE. THEY HAVE BOOSTED EXTRA DAMAGE.>>SO WHEN THEY ARE CLOSER THEY ACTUALLY HELP EACH OTHER MORE. AND WHAT DOES THE WOOL FARMER DO.>>IT BOOSTS DAMAGE FOR THOSE NEARBY. AND THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT FARMERS.>>JUST ONE MORE VILLAGER TO SAVE.>>THERE YOU SEE. YOU HAVE A A LITTLE GUIDANCE TO TELL YOU WHERE IT IS.>>COOL. WELL DONE. [ APPLAUSE ]>>THEY SAVED THE VILLAGERS. BUT THERE ARE MANY MORE ADVENTURES TO HAVE IN MINECRAFT DUNGEONS. THE GAME IS COMING TO PC, PLAYSTATION 4, 4 NINTENDO 4, SWITCH.>>WELL THAT IS ALL THE TIME WE HAVE WITH DAVID FOR NOW. DON’T FORGET TO GO AND REGISTER YOUR BIOME VOTE ON TWITTER. THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO HELP CHOOSE ONE BIOME WILL BE UPDATED NEXT IN MINECRAFT. BUT LET’S CHANGE THE SUBJECT QUICKLY. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MAKES US THE MOST PROUD TO WORK ON MINECRAFT IS HOW THE GAME IS INSPIRING AND HELPING TO BUILD A BETTER WORLD. IN 2012 WE STARTED A PARTNERSHIP WITH U.N. HABITAT CALLED BLOCK BY BLOCK. MINECRAFT IS CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO AROUND THE WORLD WITH THIS INCREDIBLE INITIATIVE.>>WHEN PEOPLE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT THINGS THEY FIND A WAY TO USE IT. TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AROUND THEM. MINECRAFT INTRODUCES PEOPLE TO A POTENTIAL THEY DIDN’T KNOW THEY HAD.>>WE DECIDED TO MAKE THE CHANGE.>>BLOCK BY BLOCK IS A JOINT PROGRAM THAT USES MINECRAFT VIDEO GAMES TO EMPOWER PEOPLE WHO DON’T TYPICALLY HAVE A VOICE IN THEIR COMMUNITY TO HELP SHAPE THE CITY AROUND THEM.>>IN MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD YOUTH MAKES UP A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE POPULATION.>>MOST OF THE YOUNGSTERS IN KENYA THEY DON’T HAVE A PLACE TO EXPLORE WHAT THEY ARE THINKING.>>THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE BEST ABOUT WHAT THE PART OF THE CITY NEEDS ARE THE ONES THAT LIVE THERE.>>PARKS CAN RANGE FROM A PARK THAT IS USED BY ALL AGES DAY AND NIGHT TO A SCHOOL ROUTE. WE BUILD THE PHYSICAL AREA WITHIN MINECRAFT AND PARTICIPANTS ARE ABLE TO GO INTO THE GAME AND USE THE NORMAL GAME CONTROLS TO REDESIGN THE AREA ONE BLOCK AT A TIME.>>ANYONE CAN BE AN URBAN PLANNER WHILE WORKING IN THIS BLOCK BY BLOCK WORKSHOP.>>IT WAS VERY FUN BECAUSE YOU FELT TO BE ABLE TO HELP THE CITY WHILE PLAYING.>>I CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA AND SOME TREES SURROUNDING THE PARK.>>THE PARTICIPANTS PRESENT THEM TO ALL OF THE LOCAL STAKEHOLDERS IN THE COMMUNITY AND ELEMENTS FROM EACH DESIGN CAN BE CHOSEN TO COMPLETE THE FINAL MODEL.>>AFTER WORKING ON THIS PROJECT IT’S AMAZING THAT A VIDEO GAME LIKE MINECRAFT CAN BE USED NOT ONLY AS A GAME BUT AS A WAY TO BUILD PUBLIC SPACES, BETTER CITIES AND MORE EQUAL SOCIETIES.>>SOME GIRLS HAVE TALKED TO ME THAT NOW THEY FOUND THAT THEY CAN START THINKING ABOUT CHOOSING SOME FUTURE JOB WITH THE COMPUTER AND ALSO HELPING THEM TO FIND THEIR FULL POTENTIAL.>>THE ARCHITECTS DRAW UP THE PLANS.>>TO ME IT’S SO EXCITING. YOU’RE ABLE TO SEE HOW MINECRAFT CAN TANGIBLY MAKE A IN THE WORLD. THEY CAN GIVE THEIR INPUT AND CHANGE THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT THEY LIVE IN.>>SOMETHING THAT I WORKED ON IS BEING MADE IN REAL LIFE.>>HEY, FRIENDS. I MADE THIS.>>CHANGE KENYA. YOU CHANGE AFRICA. YOU CHANGE THE ENTIRE WORLD. IT ALL STARTS HERE.>>WE’RE USING MINECRAFT TO EMPOWER PEOPLE TO CREATE THE WORLD AROUND THEM. [ APPLAUSE ]>>WELCOME EVERYONE. IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER MINECRAFT FIRST. THE TRIATHLON RELAY. THE CO-HOSTS WILL BE GOING UP AGAINST TEAM MOJANG. YOU’RE GOING TO BE RUNNING. WHICH IS WHY I’M NOT PLAYING. WE WILL BE FEATURINGS THREE DIFFERENT VERSIONS. HUGE THANKS TO EVER BLOOM. OUR TEAMS WILL TAKE TURNS TO SEE WHO CAN BE THE QUICKEST AND THERE MAY BE A FEW SURPRISES ALONG THE WAY. LET’S MEET OUR TEAMS. HERE WE HAVE TEAM CO-HOSTS.>>HELLO! [ CHEERING ] [ APPLAUSE ]>>AND TEAM MOJANG. [ CHEERING ] [ APPLAUSE ]>>SO LET’S TALK ABOUT YOUR CHALLENGES. MINECRAFT EARTH WILL BE A BUILD BATTLE. MINECRAFT DIGITAL TRANSFORMATIONS WILL BE A MINI LEVEL RUN.>>THE AIM OF THE GAME SHOULD BE OBVIOUS BUT I WILL BE HERE TO HELP YOU OUT. PLEASE LINE UP.>>YOU WILL BE BUILDING A CREEPER HEAD. ARE YOU READY?>>YEAH.>>GO! WE’VE GOT THE BLOCKS IN THE INVENTORY WITH VARIOUS GREEN AND BLACK.>>I APPRECIATE THAT. IT MADE IT EASIER.>>WE’RE NOT GOING TO MAKE IT THAT EASY. YOU’RE BEING TIMED. I SEE A FEW CHICKENS. I SEE THE CREEPER MOUTH FORMING. THAT LOOKS AMAZING.>>I’M USING MULTIPLE COLORS. YOU WANT TO GIVE ME EXTRA POINTS.>>IT’S JUST TIME. YOU’VE GOT TO GO AS FAST AS YOU CAN. THAT CHICKEN IS IN THE WAY.>>THE CHICKEN IS NOT BEING VERY HELPFUL.>>YOU’RE ALMOST DONE. THAT IS LOOKING GOOD.>>I CAN FIX IT. IT LOOKS GOOD. WE’VE GOT A CREEPER HEAD. [ CHEERING ]>>WE’VE GOT MASUO PLAYING ON OUR MINECRAFT DUNGEONS RUN.>>THERE IS A FEW GOOD MONSTERS IN HERE.>>THEY ARE DEFINITELY GOING TO ATTACK YOU. YOU’VE GOT ONE. NOW JUST ONE MORE. TRY TO GET THERE WITHOUT DYING.>>DON’T ATTACK ME.>>JUST DUCK AND ROLL THROUGH THEM. NO.>>NO.>>YOU’RE STUCK. OH!>>THAT IS ALL RIGHT. YOU BETTER TAG YOUR NEXT PLAYER. YOU WERE RIGHT THERE AT THE LEVER. TAG SCOTT. LET HIM GET IN THE RACE.>>YES.>>SCOTT. LET’S SEE IF YOU CAN MAKE UP SOME TIME IN THE RACE.>>THREE, TWO, ONE, GO.>>YOU JUST GOT TO DO SOME PARKOUR TO GET ACROSS. THAT WAS GREAT. WE’LL HAVE A PARTY REAL QUICK. ALL RIGHT THE RAVEGER IS A LITTLE QUICK. HE IS DOING A GREAT JOB. VILLAGERS ARE CHEERING YOU ON.>>AND THE AUDIENCE I’M SURE THEY ARE CHEERING YOU ON. THERE THEY ARE.>>THERE WE GO.>>GREAT JOB.>>GO, GO, GO, GO, GO, GO. ALL RIGHT.>>WE’RE DOING GOOD.>>WE’VE GOT A LITTLE GAME TO PLAY STILL.>>THE SKELETONS ARE NOT GOING TO GET IN YOUR WAY.>>ALL RIGHT. HERE WE’RE GOING TO PLAY A GAME OF WHACK-A-FOX. YOU’VE GOT TO GIVE HIM A PAT ON THE HEAD. THEY ARE QUICK THOUGH. FREE TO GO FOR SOME MINING NOW. NORMALLY YOU WOULD NOT DIG DOWN BUT YOU WILL BE FINE I THINK. THERE IS THE ENDERMAN. GO RIGHT THROUGH AND YOU DID IT. — [ CHEERING ] GREAT JOB BUT I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW WELL YOU DID JUST YET.

HOPEFULLY THEY DON’T GET IN THE WAY.>>FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, –>>THESE ARE THE EXPERTS.>>YOU MAKE THE FRAME FIRST.>>VERY GOOD TECHNIQUE.>>ZOMBIES ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THERE.>>DON’T GET IN MY WAY, MAN.>>THEY ARE FINE. GREAT. WE SEE THE MOUTH.>>THERE IS A MISTAKE. WE’LL FIX THAT. NOW WE’RE GOING TO GET SOME EYES.>>WE’RE FILLING IN THE FACE AND NOW YOU FILL IN THE REST WITH GREEN.>>I WENT WITH A SINGLE COLOR AS A SIMPLE CREEPER.>>WE’RE ALL ABOUT TIME RIGHT NOW.>>EXACTLY. OH, NO! WHAT DID YOU DO? YOU WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE REAL CREEPERS IN THE SEGMENT. THAT WAS SO MEAN, TORFI.>>WE WILL REBUILD.>>THANK YOU. IT WILL HAPPEN. MAYBE.>>THE CHICKENS ARE NOT HELPING IS. BUT YOU’RE DOING GREAT. YOU’RE ALMOST THERE.>>THANK YOU, AUDIENCE.>>ONE MORE. YOU’RE DONE.>>ALL RIGHT. THE SAME RUN LEVEL. JUST FIND TWO LEVERS. AND TRY NOT TO DIE. IT WILL BE FUN. LET’S SEE HOW YOU HANDLE THE MOBS. WE DON’T LIKE TnT HERE. THAT WAS GREAT. THERE IS YOUR FIRST LEVER. NOW YOU JUST HAVE TO FIND THE LAST ONE.>>SHOULD BE EASY.>>IT SHOULD BE EASY. NOT THAT MANY MONSTERS. SOMEWHERE AROUND THE CORNER. THESE ARE COOL POWERS. THERE IT IS. YOU’VE JUST GOT TO GET THROUGH. YOU GOT IT! YEAH. ALL RIGHT. NOW WE HAVE THE RACE LEFT. WE’RE GOING TO START YOUR COUNT DOWN.>>THREE, TWO, ONE, GO.>>THIS SHOULDN’T BE TOO BAD. WE’VE HAD SOME BAD EXPERIENCES WITH CREEPERS SO FAR. GREAT JOB. JUST DO A LITTLE PARTY REAL QUICK AND WE MOVE ON. OKAY. WE’RE GOING TO GO ON A NICE WALK. BOUNCE YOU AROUND A LITTLE BIT. THERE WE GO. WE’VE GOT THE CREEPERS CHEERING. THE AUDIENCE IS CHEERING. WHOO-HOO. JUST A QUICK TRIP THROUGH THE NETHER. I DON’T THINK THERE ARE ANY GHASTS IN HERE AND NOW COOL YOU OFF REAL QUICK BUT THE ICE IS A LITTLE BIT SLIPPERY. SO LET’S SEE HOW QUICK YOU CAN SLIP RIGHT THROUGH THE SECTION. THERE YOU GO. DON’T GET TOO DIZZY IN HERE. ALL RIGHT. SKELETONS TAKEN CARE OF. NOW PLAY WHACK-A-FOX. SEE IF YOU CAN GET 7 FIVE FOXES AS QUICK AS YOU CAN AND YOU DON’T WANT TO HIT THE CHICKENS. THEY — THEY ARE POPPING IN FAST. THERE YOU GO. NOW WE’RE GOING TO GO MINING. IT’S SAFE ENOUGH TO DIG DOWN IN THIS. NOW WE’RE GOING TO HAVE THE PORTAL BUILT REAL QUICK. FRIENDLY ENDERMAN. YOU’RE THROUGH. YOU GUYS DID GREAT. WE’LL SEE WHO WON THE FIRST EVER MINECRAFT RELAY. ALL RIGHT. YOU GUYS ALL DID GREAT BUT OUR WINNER TODAY IS TEAM CO-HOSTS. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH. OUR EVENT HAS EVOLVED OVER THE YEARS TO WHAT YOU’RE EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW AND NEXT YEAR WE’RE EVOLVING IT EVEN FURTHER. JOINING OUR LIVE BROADCAST WILL BE A NEW IN PERSON EVENT CALLED MINECRAFT FESTIVAL. MINECRAFT FESTIVAL WILL TAKE PLACE FROM SEPTEMBER 25-27 IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA. — TO SIGN UP PLEASE HEAD TO OUR WEBSITE. VERY EXCITING. AND NOW PLEASE WELCOME TO THE STAGE AGNES AND JENS.>>WELCOME. YOU WERE BUZZING AROUND.>>IT’S BEEN SUPER FUN. REALLY AMAZING. –>>SO JENS HOW DOES IT FEEL WHEN WE HAVE TWO NEW GAMESCOMING OUT.>>IT’S OF COURSE GREAT. MICROSOFT DUNGEONS AND MICROSOFT EARTH BUT WE HAVE A THIRD GAME CALLED MINECRAFT BUILDERS AND BIOMES.>>THERE MIGHT BE A HINT FOR PEOPLE TO SEE. SO YOU’RE GOING TO TELL US ABOUT AN UPDATE. THE NEXT BIG UPDATE. BUT BEFORE THAT I WANT TO KNOW HOW YOU GOT INTO GAMING. AGNES.>>SO I HAVE PLAYED GAMES AND LOVED GAMES AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER AND I USED TO DRAW GAMES BEFORE I COULD PROGRAM. I LEARNED PROGRAMMING MUCH LATER SO I WOULD DRAW MY OWN GAMES AND THEN I MADE IT INTO GAMING AND WORKING ON GAMES AND IT’S SO FUN.>>WE HAVE A PHOTO OF THE ORIGINAL TINY AGNES HERE. I LOVE — I LOVE THAT YOUR PLAYING ON A COMPUTER YOU ALSO HAVE A BABY BOTTLE. YOU HAVE REALLY BEEN PLAYING SINCE YOU WERE VERY SMALL.>>YES. I THINK I SHOULD BE OLD ENOUGH TO DRINK OUT OF SOMETHING ELSE BUT I WAS STUBBORN.>>WERE YOU CODING?>>NO CODING. ONLY PLAYING.>>AND JENS HOW DID YOU GET YOUR START?>>A SIMILAR STORY. I LOVE GAMES AND I MADE LEVELS ON PAPER AND ADDED ENEMIES AND WHEN A FRIEND SHOWED ME A CONSTRUCTION KIT ON THE 664 THAT IS WHEN I REALIZED THAT WE COULD MAKE GAMES AND I’VE BEEN DOING THAT SINCE THEN.>>AND WE HAVE A PHOTO OF ADORABLE TINY JENS THERE ON THE LEFT. YOU LOOK THE SAME. WITHOUT THE BEARD.>>SO YOU’RE GOING TO TELL US ABOUT THE NEXT UPDATE.>>YES. BUT FIRST A PART OF THE NEXT UPDATE WE WANT TO SHOW YOU A BLOCK THAT IS NOT COMPLETELY RELATED TO THE THEME OF UPDATE BUT IT’S STILL REALLY COOL. HERE IS THE TARGET BLOCK. [ CHEERING ] [ APPLAUSE ] ♪♪ [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>HOW COOL IS THAT. I ALSO LIKE YOUR CHICKEN ADVISOR THERE HANGING OUT DURING THE WHOLE PROCESS.>>YOU CAN SHOOT ARROWS AND IT WILL EMIT AND READ STONE SIGNAL AND THE CLOSER THE BIGGER THE SIGNAL WILL BE.>>HOW DO YOU SEE PLAYERS USING THIS?>>WELL MAKE MINI GAMES AND VARIOUS CONTRAPTIONS AND MAYBE ALSO CREATE NEW –>>THAT WOULD BE COOL.>>THIS IS PART OF THE NEXT UPDATE WHICH IS HIGHER->>WE’RE SUPER EXCITED TO FINALLY HAVE NETHER UPDATES.>>THE NETHER UPDATE. [ APPLAUSE ] SO THE NETHER HASN’T BEEN A PLACE THAT IS VERY LIVABLE AND THAT IS ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE SO HOW IS THAT CHANGING?>>WELL, IT WILL STILL NOT BE EASY TO LIVE THERE. BUT YOU CAN SO WE WANT YOU TO HAVE A BASE THERE. YOU CAN SET YOUR SPAWNING NETHER AND FIND FOOD IN NETHER BUT IT’S STILL A DANGEROUS PLACE.>>FOOD IN THE NETHER SO THAT MEANS THERE IS SOMETHING –>>WELL, IT’S NEW AND WE’LL TALK MORE ABOUT IT LATER.>>SO FIRST –>>WE ALSO WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE ARE MORE THINGS TO EXPLORE. AND MORE THINGS TO FIND AND MORE THINGS TO DO. SO WE WANTED TO INTR INTRO — INTRODUCE BIOMES.>>THE FIRST IS THE SOULS AND VALLEY. THE SOULSAND VALLEY. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>YOU’RE RIGHT. NOT SURE I WOULD WANT TO LIVE THERE.>>DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU PREFER.>>WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SOULSAND VALLEY.>>THIS IS A SCARY BIOME. IT’S QUITE BARON AND IT HAS A BLUE FOG AND FIRE. IT WILL NOW TURN BLUE AND IT’S THE VISIBLE FOSSILS.>>AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE THIS AND WORK IN ANY.>>YES.>>THAT IS REALLY COOL. YOU DID SAY BIOMES SO WE HAVE ANOTHER BIOME TO LOOK AT.>>THE NETHER FOREST. THE NETHER WART FOREST. [ APPLAUSE ]>>THERE IS A LOT IN THE NETHER WART FOREST. WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THERE?>>LOTS OF THINGS. IT’S — THE RED ONE HAS A WEIRD WAY. SWIRLING PARTICLES AND A LOT OF VEGETATION. IT’S VERY DENSE SO THE PLAYERS CAN GET LOST IN THERE AND THEN WE HAVE THE BLUE ONE WHICH IS A UNIQUE ATMOSPHERE. EVEN MORE WEIRD IF POSSIBLE AND THE PARTICLES ARE FALLING AND LOTS OF NEW BLOCKS — NEW VEGETATION.>>HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON THE COLORS BECAUSE IT’S SO DIFFERENT THAN THE LOOK OF THE NETHER WHEN YOU ADD THESE BIOMES.>>WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WHEN YOU EXPLORE YOU GET MORE VARIATION. AND WE WERE THINKING ABOUT — AND HOW COULD WE ADD MORE COLOR TO THE NETHER AND THAT CREATES A GOOD FEELING.>>IT’S REALLY BEAUTIFUL BUT IT’S GOING TO BE JUST AS HARD SO EVEN THOUGH THIS LOOKS QUITE LIKE AN OASIS IT’S NOT GOING TO BE.>>WELL WE STILL CALL IT THE NETHER WART FOREST BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN IT WILL BE EASY SO THERE WILL BE FOR EXAMPLE A NEW HOSTILE MOB AND I THINK WE CAN SHOW IT NOW AND WE TEMPORARILY CALL IT THE PIGLIN BEAST.>>COOL.>>SO YOU SAID WE’RE TEMPORARILY CALLING IT THE PIGLIN BEAST. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?>>WE WOULD LOVE TO GET SUGGESTIONS FROM THE COMMUNITY ON A BETTER NAME SO PLEASE IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS SEND THEM AND WE CAN PICK THE NAME LATER.>>AND WHAT HAPPENS WITH THIS TO BE NAMED PIGLIN BEAST?>>IT’S AGGRESSIVE SO IT’S QUITE SCARY BUT ALSO THE FOOD SOURCE IN NETHER. SO WE WANT THE EXPERIENCE TO BE UNIQUE. WHEN YOU GET YOUR FOOD YOU CANNOT JUST HAVE THE — FARM BUT YOU NEED TO FIND THE PIGLIN BEAST AND GET THE FOOD FROM THERE.>>AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU HAVE A FOOD SOURCE IN THE NETHER.>>YES.>>SO THAT MAKES IT LIVABLE ISH. AND WHERE DOES PIGLINS COME FROM?>>PIGLIN IS ACTUALLY CALLED — THE PIGMEN NOW AND WE’RE INTRODUCING PIGLIN MOB. WE CAN TAKE A LOOK AT THE VIDEO.>>PIGLIN. [ APPLAUSE ]>>THEY LOOK MEAN BUT THEY ALSO HAVE THE FLOPPY EARS. THEY ARE KIND OF CUTE, TOO.>>YES. SORRY — THERE IS A LOT GOING ON IN THIS VIDEO BUT AT THE CORE, THE PIGLIN IS ALMOST LIKE A NEW CIVILIZATION THAT WE ADDED TO THE NETHER AND THEY ARE HOSTILE TO THE PLAYER AND THEY HUNT THE PIGLIN BEAST FOR FOOD AS WELL. THEY COLLECT GOLD AND IF YOU WEAR GOLD ARMOR THEY WILL IGNORE YOU. THEY WON’T LIKE YOU BUT THEY WILL IGNORE YOU UNLESS YOU OPEN CHESTS OR START POKING IN THEIR STUFF.>>I LIKE THIS MECHANIC. SO IF YOU OPEN A CHEST CLOSE TO A PIGLIN AND THEY SEE YOU THEY WILL GET REALLY UPSET.>>BUT THAT IS ACTUALLY A GOOD REASON WHY THE PLAYER WANTS TO APPROACH THE PIGLINS BECAUSE WE WILL INTRODUCE A NEW TRADING WITH THEM CALLED BARTERING BUT IT’S DIFFERENT THAN VILLAGER TRADING.>>BECAUSE VILLAGER TRADING ARE VERY FRIENDLY. THE PIGLINS DO IT IN THEIR OWN WAY. YOU CAN THROW SOME GOLD AT THEM — AND THEY WILL JUST GO AND PICK IT UP.>>ARE THERE SOME NEW THINGS THAT THEY WILL BARTER WITH YOU?>>IT WILL.>>THAT IS A LOT HAVE NETHER THINGS COMING. [ APPLAUSE ]>>ANY PARTICULAR FAVORITES IN THE UPDATE FOR YOU. ARE YOU LOVE THEM ALL TOO MUCH?>>FOR ME IT’S THE PIGLINS BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MANY IDEAS.>>SO MANY IDEAS.>>AGNES?>>FOR ME IT’S THE BIOMES. IT WILL BE SO INTERESTING TO EXPLORE BUT OF COURSE BIOMES ADD SO MANY NEW RESOURCES. AND SO MANY NEW ATMOSPHERES. SO YEAH I’M VERY EXCITED.>>SPEAKING OF BIOMES, WE HAVE A VOTE GOING ON THAT WE NOW HAVE A WINNER FOR. PREDICTION — [ CHEERING ] [ APPLAUSE ]>>EXCITING.>>PREDICTIONS ON THE WINNER. EITHER SWAMP OR MOUNTAINS. WHICH DO YOU THINK WILL TAKE IT?>>WELL, I WOULD GUESS SWAMP.>>JENS.>>SNOW IS SNOWIER.>>SO YOU’RE GUESSING MOUNTAINS.>>YEAH.>>MAYBE WE SHOULD FIND OUT. IS OUR CORRESPONDENT SOMEWHERE CLOSE? THERE YOU ARE.>>HELLO! [ CHEERING ] [ APPLAUSE ] I HAVE THE VOTE RIGHT HERE. THEY HAVE TALLIED IT AND DOUBLE CHECKED IT. WHO’S GOING TO DO THE HONORS.>>I THINK IT’S JENS’ TURN.>>OKAY. LET’S HEAR IT.>>AND THE WINNER IS — MOUNTAINS!. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>THAT’S AMAZING. HOW DOES IT FEEL WITH THE MOUNTAINS?>>IT’S GREAT. ABSOLUTELY.>>IT IS ALSO YOUR PREDICTION.>>HIS PREDICTION, YES.>>CAN YOU REMIND US WHAT WE WILL BE GETTING IN THE MOUNTAINS.>>YOU WILL GET GOATS AND A NEW KIND OF SNOW. AND WE’LL ALSO LOOK INTO THE GENERATION OF THE MOUNTAINS TO GIVE THEM A MORE MAJESTIC FEEL. [ APPLAUSE ]>>JENS AND AGNES, YOU HAVE GIVEN US A TON TO LOOK FORWARD TO. THANK YOU SO MUCH. IT’S BEEN A SHOW PACKED FULL OF ANNOUNCEMENTS. STAY TUNED FOR A DEVELOPER PANEL THAT BEGINS RIGHT AFTER THIS. BUT FIRST LET’S TAKE A QUICK LOOK AT WHAT’S HAPPENED OVER THE COURSE OF THE SHOW. MINECRAFT WOULDN’T BE WHAT IT IS TODAY WITHOUT ALL OF YOU! ON BEHALF OF OUR ENTIRE TEAM, THANK YOU! [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>>WOW. WHAT AN EXCELLENT SHOW! WE’VE GOT THEM HOT OFF THE STAGE. WE’VE GOT PLENTY MORE TO TALK ABOUT. LET’S KICK OFF OUR POST SHOW DEVELOPMENT. THANK YOU FOR JOINING ME BACK HERE. ALSO JOINING US YOU KNOW HER AS ONE OF THE HOST OF THE SHOW LYDIA WINTERS BUT LET’S JUMP IN THE PANEL FIRST. CORY, WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE ILLUSIONER MOB?>>IT’S BEEN IN THE GAME FOR QUITE A WHILE. BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN PART OF THE CORE GAME. IT’S JUST BEEN THERE HIDING. SO REALLY WANT TO ADD THE ILLUSIONER TO THE GAME. WE DIDN’T HAVE THE TECHNICAL CAPABILITIES. IT WOULD BE PERFECT FOR RAIDS. A GREAT ADDITION TO THOSE AND PLANNING THAT SOON.>>AWESOME. NEXT UP IS JASON. YOU’RE ON THE PLATFORM TEAM FOR BEDROCK. WHEN WILL COMPLETE PARITY HAPPEN?>>SO FOR EVERY UPDATE WE WANT TO HAVE EACH UPDATE COME OUT AT THE SAME TIME. THERE IS A BACK CATALOGUE OF PARITY DIFFERENCES AND WE’RE WORKING THROUGH THOSE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. THERE ARE DIFFERENT — TECHNICAL PLATFORMS. AND THERE IS DIFFERENT DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS. SO ON BEDROCK WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE TOUCH AND CONTROLLER WORK REALLY WELL AND TWEAK GAME PLAY. BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE SPIRITUALLY BOTH PLATFORMS FEEL LIKE THE SAME.>>WHEN WILL WE BE SEEING PENGUINS? THAT WAS SUPER CUTE.>>HOPEFULLY SOON BUT WE HAVE TO CONVINCE SOME PEOPLE.>>IF YOU NEED ANY HELP MAYBE I CAN BLOW UP TWITTER.>>OUR NEXT QUESTION IS ABOUT THE CHARACTER CREATOR AND WE HAVE SARAH HERE. SARAH, WILL THERE BE ADDITIONAL FREE OPTIONS IN THE FUTURE BESIDES WHAT IS IN THE BETA NOW?>>ABSOLUTELY. THERE IS STUFF YOU CAN GET THROUGH ACHIEVEMENTS BUT THERE IS GOING TO BE MORE FREE STUFF OVER TIME.>>NICE. SO NOW LET’S GO TO A QUESTION ABOUT MINECRAFT EARTH AND WE HAVE THE GAME DIRECTOR TORFI HERE TO ANSWER. IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN ADVENTURE?>>IT’S KIND OF LIKE THE LIMIT WITH ELEVATORS. HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN YOU PHYSICALLY SQUEEZE TOGETHER BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO BE THERE IN THE SAME PLACE. YOU HAVE TO BE IN THE PARK AT THE TIME. THE CAP IS ACTUALLY 40. IT’S JUST A NUMBER WE TYPED IN. WE WERE TESTING IT AND IT COULD GO HIGHER AND HIGHER. WE WERE JUST AFRAID WHAT WOULD HAPPEN WITH MORE THAN 40 PEOPLE PILING UP ON EACH OTHER.>>40 IS STILL A LOT OF PEOPLE.>>IT’S A LUXURY PROBLEM TO HAVE.>>YOU USUALLY DON’T HEAR ABOUT IT WORKING OUT THAT WAY. HOW DOES THE GAME DETERMINE WHO IS PLAYING WITH YOU?>>THAT IS SIMPLE. THE GAME DETERMINES WHO’S IN THE ADVENTURE BY WHO’S THERE. IF I’M IN THE PARK AT THE TIME, — THE GAME SPAWNS THE ADVENTURE IN THE PARK AND IT’S ONLY THERE FOR LIKE 10 MINUTES. YOU GET IN AND IT LIVES THERE FOR 10 MINUTES AND YOU PLAY THE ADVENTURE AND THEN IT STARTS SPAWNING. THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THERE EVEN IF THEY DON’T KNOW EACH OTHER — THEY ARE PART OF THE SAME ADVENTURE AND SHARE THE SAME PRIZES BUT WHEN IT COLLAPSES THEY ARE OUT.>>GOT IT. INTERESTING.>>SO WE ALSO HAVE THE GAME DIRECTOR FOR MINECRAFT DUNGEONS. DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE ABILITY THAT WE SHOULD LOOK FORWARD TO.>>SURE. THE WAY THAT IT WORKS IS THEY ARE SEPARATED BETWEEN ARTIFACTS. AND THEN THE ENCHANTMEANTS WHERE YOU INVEST POINTS AS YOU LEVEL UP. AND COMBINING THOSE GIVES SOME INTERESTING GAME PLAY. SO I’M THE TYPE OF PERSON WHO LIKES TO PLAY AN OBJECT CHARACTER SO COMBINING THE MULTI-CHANCE. AND THEN USINGS THE FIREWORKS ARROW TO GET FIREWORKS ALL OVER THE SCREEN IS REALLY FUN.>>THAT IS SUPER COOL. NOW LET’S GET INTO VANILLA PLAY GAME QUESTIONS. THIS TIME FOR AGNES. WHY ARE THERE NO FEMALE VILLAGERS.>>SO THE REASON IS THAT WE DON’T HAVE ANY ENDERS AT ALL IN MINECRAFT. AND I’M AWARE THAT EXISTING VILLAGERS LOOK LIKE MEN. AND WE ALSO WHEN WE MADE THE NEW VILLAGER SKINS WE THOUGHT ABOUT MAKING SURE THEY WERE NEUTRAL. TO SHOW THAT WE DON’T HAVE ANY GENDERS.>>WE HAVE A QUESTION FOR FREDRIK. WILL WE BE ABLE TO USE THE CONTENT FROM REALMS PLUS IN OTHER PLACES.>>YES. THE CONTENT IS INCLUDED IN THE REALMS PLUS. IT’S AVAILABLE FOR ANY OTHER REALMS CONTENT. YOU CAN PLAY IT LOCALLY OR WITH FRIENDS IF YOU HAVE A SERVER. IF YOU HAVE CONTENT YOU CAN JUST DOWNLOAD IT AND PLAY IT.>>ONCE YOU’VE GOT IT YOU CAN UTILIZE IT WHERE EVER.>>AWESOME.>>SO SOME GENERAL QUESTIONS. WHOEVER WANTS TO DIVE IN TO THESE. WHICH FEATURE WAS THE MOST FUN FOR YOU TO ADD INTO MINECRAFT? YOU.>>I WOULD SAY THERE ARE SO MANY FEATURES THAT I WORKED ON VILLAGE AND PILLAGE. BUT THE MOST FUN WAS ARE THE SIMPLEST ONE WAS THE BROWN MUSHROOMS BECAUSE AT THE LAST PANEL SOMEBODY ASKED WHY WE DIDN’T HAVE BROWN MUSHROOMS SO I ADDED THEM. I DIDN’T REALLY TALK TO THE TEAM. I JUST WENT A SAID AND SAID THAT. WE ADDED IT. THE ILLUSIONER.>>VERY COOL. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE A PARTICULAR FAVORITE?>>I LOVED WORKING ON THE ENTIRE UPDATE AQUATIC. CORRALS HAVE WAY MORE COLOR VARIATIONS. WHAT IF WE MADE 16 COLORS OF FISH? WHAT ABOUT THE SHAPES AND THEN WE HAVE 3500 DIFFERENT PATTERNS. BUT IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. AND I LOVE SEEING HOW IT TURNED OUT IN THE ROOFS.>>PERSONAL QUESTION. THERE ARE SO MANY OPTIONS IN ORDER TO BUILD THINGS AND BE CREATIVE IN MINECRAFT. DO YOU FIND YOURSELF HAVING TO PULL B – BACK? ANYBODY WANT TO GO FOR THAT OR DID I SCARE YOU ALL?>>WHEN YOU’RE WORKING — I WORK ON VANILLA MINECRAFT SO WHEN YOU THINK OF FEATURES YOU COULD — YOU THINK BIG AND THEN SHRINK IT DOWN. BECAUSE YOU COULD GO SUPERVISEE AND THINK ABOUT THE CRAZIEST THING. THAT HAPPENS FOR ALMOST EVERY FEATURE ACTUALLY.>>SO IT’S A GIVE A TAKE.>>THE KEY THING IS MAKING SURE TO BE AS POLISHED AS POSSIBLE. WE COULD PUT TWICE AS MANY THINGS BUT THEY WON’T HAVE THE POLISH. BY KEEPING IT TIGHT WE CAN MAKE IT AMAZING.>>IMPORTANT THAT WHATEVER YOU PUT IN THAT DOESN’T HAVE JUST ONE FUNCTION. YOU GENERALLY ADD A BLOCK OR A MOB. THEY SHOULD HAVE MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS AND BE CONNECTED TO MULTIPLE SYSTEMS. WE HAVE A CHICK IN AND IT LOVES TO HIDE IN THE DARKNESS AND LAYS MUSHROOMS. AND THERE IS A PROBLEM. I TURNED BACK AND THEY WERE ALL GONE AND WE THOUGHT IT WAS A BUG. BUT THEY HAD FOUND A SMALL CRACK IN THE GROUND AND THEY STARTED DIGGING AND THEY ARE ALL HIDING IN A HOLE.>>BECAUSE THEY ARE ASHAMED THAT THEY ARE LAYING MUSHROOMS.>>SO WE REALLY THINK ABOUT WHEN WE ADD THESE THINGS LIKE WITH THE MUSHROOM AND WHEN WE ADD THINGS TO DUNGEONS HOW IT FITS INTO MINECRAFT AS A WHOLE. WE HAVE LOTS OF IDEAS AND THEY ALL GO INTO A PHASE OF PRUNING AND THEN WE TAKE THE THINGS THAT REALLY BELONG IN THE GAME.>>AGNES, DID YOU WANT TO FINISH YOUR THOUGHT.>>SO RELATED TO THIS. WE WORK WITH PROTOTYPES AND MAKE SURE IT’S FUN IN GAME SO WE MAKE SURE TO IMPLEMENT ALL OF THE THINGS EARLY AND THEN DECIDE BASED ON HOW IT FEELS. WHAT SHOULD STAY OR BE REMOVED. IT’S PART OF THE PROCESS TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE FUN THINGS.>>SO THE NEXT QUESTION FOR YOU IS A TWITTER QUESTION. WILL YOU UPDATE ALL THREE BIOMES EVENTUALLY OR ONLY THE ONE THAT GOT VOTED?>>WE WILL UPDATE ALL OF THEM EVENTUALLY. BUT MOUNTAINS WILL BE FIRST.>>VERY COOL. BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONE I VOTED FOR.>>I VOTED FOR SWAMPS.>>WELL, YOU LOST.>>BUT I LIKE MOUNTAINS.>>I’VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS SHINING HOTEL THAT OVERLOOK HOTEL FOR LIKE TWO YEARS NOW AND NOW I’M GOING TO WAIT UNTIL THE MOUNTAIN UPDATE COMES OUT AND THEN I’M GOING TO BUST OUT. I’M VERY EXCITED. THIS IS TO EVERYBODY AS WELL. WHAT IS THE FUNNEST BUG THAT YOU’VE ENCOUNTERED.>>THERE WAS ONE IN THE CHARACTER CREATOR FOR A WHILE. WHEN YOU LOADED UP THE GAME THEY WOULD BLINK AND IT WOULD GET FASTER AND FASTER AND FASTER. THEY ARE POSSESSED NOW.>>THAT SOUNDS AMAZING. YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT IT IN.>>I KNOW. ESPECIALLY WITH THE LINE UP OF FIVE ON THE CAROUSEL.>>THAT IS SUPER CREEPY. I LOVE IT.>>WHEN WE BROUGHT THE ANIMATION SYSTEM INTO BEDROCK THE PIGS ROTATED THEIR BODIES THIS WAY AND THEIR HEAD ITSELF WERE ON THE GROUND. IT LOOKED LIKE A VACUUM CLEANER. IT WAS FUNNY.>>– IT’S LIKE THE HEAD IS THERE AND THE LEGS ARE UP ON THE BACK AND IT LOOKS SUPER WEIRD AND THEY WALK AROUND.>>>HAS THERE EVER BEEN A BUG THAT YOU LEFT ALONE?>>ALL THE TIME.>>WE HAVE A THING IN DUNGEONS WHERE IF YOU — SO THE ARCH ILLAGER APPEARS AND DISAPPEARS. AND SO WE HAVE THIS BUG WHERE IF YOU SHOT HIM HE WOULD GET REALLY SMALL. THE ARROW WOULD SCALE UP WITH HIM. AND THEN THIS GIANT ARROW. NOW IN THE GAME WE HAVE AN ENCHANTMENT CALLED GROWING SO THE ARROW GETS BIGGER.>>GOOD PROBLEM SOLVING. THIS IS ALSO FROM TWITTER. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE MOBS?>>MY FAVORITE — I REALLY LIKE SHEEP. AND I LIKE — — LIKE IN MY TOWN THAT I’M BUILDING AND — I CAN BUILD COLORFUL BUILD JOINS IS THAT WHAT ATTRACTS TO THE SHEEP.>>THEY ARE CUTE BUT IT’S THE WOOL AND THAT I CAN DECORATE.>>ANYBODY ELSE?>>ONE THAT I THINK IS AMAZING IS — A NEW ONE THAT IS UNANNOUNCED SO I AM NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT.>>MAYBE THAT IS THE NEXT POLL FOR NEXT YEAR. WHICH MOB WAS TORFI’S FAVORITE. SO HERE IS A GOOD ONE. WHERE DO YOU GUYS SEE MINECRAFT GOING IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS?>>SO WE WANT TO CONTINUE UPDATING MINECRAFT FOR MANY YEARS. MUCH MORE THAN 10 YEARS. SO I THINK WE WILL COME TO YOU TO HAVE THESE MAJOR UPDATES AND TWO A YEAR AND THEN CONTINUE AND OF COURSE, WE NEED TO MAKE SURE TO ALWAYS KEEP MINECRAFT — MINECRAFTY. WE ALWAYS NEED TO THINK SO WE DON’T BREAK THE MAGIC OF MINECRAFT.>>THAT IS BRILLIANT. WE WERE TALKING YESTERDAY WHERE THAT MINECRAFT IS PRETTY ICONIC. IT’S HERE TO STAY AND REMAIN RELEVANT. DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE SPECIFIC THINGS THAT THEY THINK ARE GOING TO MINECRAFT IN 10 YEARS. YOU’VE GOT DUNGEONS AND THAT IS A DIFFERENT BALL GAME.>>I’M EXCITED ABOUT ALL OF THE NEW THINGS COMING OUT. BOTH EARTH AND DUNGEONS I THINK ARE EXCITING AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT HAPPENING. BUT I’M ALSO LOOKING FORWARD TO UPDATING DUNGEONS OVER TIME AND THEN KEEP UPDATING IT JUST LIKE WE DO WITH THE REGULAR.>>WHAT IS THE PRESSURE LIKE KNOWING THAT YOU’RE TAKING SUCH A BELOVED GAME AND KIND OF SHIFTING GEARS WITH IT IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION? IT’S BEEN THE WORST –>>IT’S A LITTLE SPOOKY AND SOMETHING THAT WE THINK ABOUT AS WE MAKE IT. BUT WE HAVE THE LUXURY OF SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO THE VANILLA TEAM SO IF WE NEED TO SYNC WITH THEM WE WALK RIGHT OVER.>>COLLABORATE A LOT ON THE DESIGNS. WE INFORM EACH OTHER SO WE REALLY SYNC.>>YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO COLLABORATE. HIRE ME FOR YOUR PR: TORFI. WHAT WILL MINECRAFT BE LIKE –>>THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION. IN ORDER TO GO OUT AND FIND THE ADVENTURES YOU HAVE TO WALK BASICALLY USE YOUR FEET. AND THERE IS A MAP. AND WE USED OPEN STREET MAP WHICH IS LIKE AN OPEN SOURCE MAP WHICH IS AN AMAZING MAP OF THE ENTIRE GLOBE. SO IN ORDER TO PICK THE PLACES WHERE WE PUT THE CONTENT WE DIDN’T CHOOSE THE PATH THAT OTHER GAMES HAVE GONE TO HAVE PLAYERS GO OUT AND PROMOTE AREAS BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS THEN IT’S MOSTLY BIG CITIES OR BIGGER TOWNS BUT OPEN STREET MAP LITERALLY HAS A MAP OF EVERY SMALL TOWN IN THE WORLD. WE HAD A PROBLEM AND I PROBABLY SHOULDN’T TALK ABOUT IT BUT I WILL. SOME PEOPLE ARE PLAYING MINECRAFT EARTH RIGHT NOW IN FIVE CITIES BUT SOME PEOPLE FOUND ANOTHER WAY TO PLAY THEM. AND WHEN THAT HAPPENED I OPENED UP THE MAP AND THERE WAS LIKE LITERALLY EVERYWHERE. SMALL TOWNS IN RUSSIA. SOMEWHERE IN SIBERIA. AND AFRICA AND ASIA. IT WAS LIKE A VIRUS INFECTION. WHICH WAS COOL BUT SHOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED. POINT BEING IT SHOULD BE EVERYWHERE WHERE PEOPLE LIVE. NOT IN SOME RANDOM HILL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SAHARA.>>TOTALLY RANDOM AND MAYBE YOU DID OR DIDN’T DO THIS AND I DIDN’T KNOW. BUT ARE THERE ANY EASTER EGGS?>>TONS.>>I WILL BE OUTSIDE A LOT. AGAIN THIS IS FROM TWITTER TO EVERYONE. I’M TAKING THAT BACK. I WANT TO MOVE ON. CORY, WHAT THINGS ARE IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER WHEN BRAINSTORMING TO DEVELOPERS OR TO MAKE INTO A VANILLA STYLE MOB?>>THAT IS A BIG QUESTION.>>WHEN YOU’RE THINKING OF IDEAS WIN WE THINK OF IDEAS WE TRY TO THINK FIRST OF WOULD THIS ADD TO IT. AND THEN DOES IT WORK WITH OTHER FEATURES ALREADY IN THE GAME. WE TRY TO ADD THINGS THAT WILL INTERACT AND BRING EVERYTHING TOGETHER. TRY TO THINK ABOUT HOW DOES THIS INTERACT WITH FEATURES ALREADY IN THE GAME. HOW WOULD THEY ENHANCE THEM.>>LIKE PENGUINS WOULD ENHANCE MINECRAFT.>>MAKE THEM CHASE FISH.>>THAT IS WHAT YOU’VE GOT TO THINK THROUGH.>>THEY WOULD INTERACT WITH FISH. GLACIERS THAT WERE ADDED.>>I LIKE ARE THE PITCH THAT I’VE STARTED.>>I DON’T THINK I’M ALLOWED TO GO TWO MOBS IN ONE PANEL.>>THE OTHER QUESTION — THIS IS FOR EVERYBODY. ARE YOUR FAVORITE PIZZA TOPPINGS.>>I LOVE PEPPERONI.>>I LIKE THE CLASSICS.>>I LIKE TOMATO AND CHEESE PIZZA. NOTHING FANCY.>>I THINK BELL PEPPER.>>THIS IS A TRICKY QUESTION. TO BE FAIR IF THERE IS A REALLY GOOD CHEESE — MOZZARELLA. WHICH IS QUITE BASIC AS WELL.>>YOU THOUGHT THAT WAS TRICKY. THAT WAS A FINE ANSWER.>>YOU HAVE BEEN ON STAGE FOR A SOLID TWO HOURS. I’M SURE YOU ARE STARVING.>>I ONCE HAD A PIZZA IN EASTERN ISLAND AND IT HAD REINDEER MEAT AND BERRIES BUT GENERALLY –>>WAS IT TASTY?>>SADLY YES.>>HAM AND PINEAPPLE AND BACON.>>I’M WITH AGNES HERE. A REALLY GOOD MOZZARELLA CHEESE. IT’S A SMOKY — SO GOOD.>>OKAY I’M REALLY HUNGRY NOW.>>I AM TOO. LAST QUESTION. I KNOW WE BRIEFLY TOUCHED UPON IT ABOUT THE BIOME. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT MOUNTAINS BEING IN THIS YEAR’S WINNING BIOME. WE KNOW YOU WANTED SWAMP.>>I’M SUPER HAPPY ABOUT MOUNTAINS AS WELL. WE LIKE ALL OF THEM. IT WILL BE GREAT AND I’M EXCITED TO START PROTOTYPE ON IT AND SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE COOLER MOUNTAIN ITERATION AND THINGS LIKE THAT.>>FANTASTIC.>>I THINK CAMPAIGNING FOR GOATS FOR A YEAR NOW:>>AND I THINK THAT ONE OF THE BEST THINGS ABOUT VANILLA IS TAKING THE FEATURES THAT HAVE BEEN THERE FOR A LONG TIME AND UPDATING THEM SO IT WILL BE NICE TO GIVE A FRESH COAT OF PAINT TO MOUNTAINS.>>100%. TEAM MOUNTAIN GOAT.>>I’M IN A DUNGEON.>>I’M A LITTLE BIT SAD ABOUT NOT SEEING THE FROG.>>THE FROG WAS CUTE.>>THAT IS A SOLID POINT. THANK YOU FOR JOINING ME AND CONGRATULATIONS ON AN EXCELLENT SHOW. BEFORE LYDIA WINTERS JOINS ME BACK STAGE LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM MINECON 2019.>>WELCOME EVERYONE!. AND WELCOME LYDIA AND CONGRATS ON AN EXCELLENT SHOW.>>IT FEELS AMAZING AND SURREAL. HARD TO DESCRIBE. SOMETHING YOU’VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR SO LONG AND THEN THE SHOW HAPPENS SO QUICKLY. I NEED TO WATCH IT BACK SO I CAN LIVE IT.>>KIND OF LIKE A WEDDING. AND DID THAT JUST HAPPEN? YOU LOADED US DOWN WITH AMAZING CONTENT. I WAS ENJOYING MYSELF THE ENTIRE TIME. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT OF THE SHOW?>>IT’S HARD. BECAUSE –>>DO YOU WANT TO SPLIT THEM UP IN TWO. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE GAME RELATED?>>THIS IS LIKE CHOOSING KIDS I WOULD IMAGINE IF YOU HAVE THEM. HOW DO I PICK? I THINK THE MAIN THING FOR ME IS THIS GR — YEAR WE GOT TO SHOW O MUCH OF OUR — WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE STUDIO. WE ANNOUNCED DUNGEONS BUT SAID VERY LITTLE ABOUT IT AND THIS YEAR TO SHOW IT FELT LIKE HOW HUGE IS IT. THIS IS THE FIRST SHOW WHERE WE FELT, WE HAVE TO CUT CONTENT. IT’S TOO MUCH STUFF WHICH IS THE MOST LUXURY PROBLEM TO HAVE.>>I ACTUALLY ENJOYED THE DUNGEONS TRAILER AS WELL. IT WAS SUPER DUE TO.>>IT WILL PUT YOU IN THE MIND-SET. I ALSO LIKED THE PHYSICAL MINI GAMES THAT YOU HAD ON STAGE. THAT WAS — I WAS SITTING HERE AND I WAS LIKE OH, MAN I WISH I COULD PLAY THAT RIGHT NOW.>>AND ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY’VE BEEN PRACTICING BUT WITH NOTHING — ACTUALLY STICKY OR GROSS.>>SO THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT THEY WERE TOUCHING.>>WE PRACTICED WITH THINGS LIKE CUPS OR NORMAL STUFF AND THEIR RESPONSES COULDN’T HAD BEEN BETTER AND JUST SEEING THE SCENE WHERE MASUO WAS DIGGING. HIS FACE –>>HE SHOULD HOST SO MUCH STUFF. HE IS MY NEW FAVORITE OF ALL-TIME. THAT GUY IS ADORABLE. HOW EXCITED ARE YOU FOR THE YEAR AHEAD? YOU’VE GOT A TON OF STUFF.>>IT’S AMAZING. WHEN I STARTED AT THE COMPANY SOMEONE TOLD ME LIKE EVERY YEAR IT GETS CRAZIER AND CRAZIER WITH MINECRAFT AND NOW I’M PAST MY 8th YEAR AND EVERY YEAR GETS CRAZIER AND CRAZIER AND I DON’T THINK 2020 IS GOING TO SLOW DOWN WHEN WE LAUNCH TWO NEW GAMES. THREE WITH THE BOARD GAME.>>DID YOU GET A CHANCE TO SIT BACK FOR A LITTLE BIT AND TAKE A BREATH AND ASSESS AND ENJOY WHAT YOU’VE MADE OR IS IT IMMEDIATELY BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD? BECAUSE MINECRAFT BEING WHAT IT IS THERE IS ALWAYS THE DEMAND.>>THIS MIGHT BE THE ONLY MOMENT THAT I HAVE. SITTING AND ENJOYING IT AND THEN WE’LL — START TALKING AGAIN. NEXT YEAR WE CAN DO THIS BECAUSE THAT WORKED REALLY WELL. WHEN YOU WORK ON SOMETHING THAT YOU LOVE AND YOU’RE SUPER EXCITED IT’S HARD NOT TO.>>WHICH ONE WERE YOU SHOOTING FOR? I AM FROM FLORIDA SO I WAS A BIT BIASED WITH THE SWAMP.>>I’M GLAD YOU BROUGHT THAT UP BECAUSE THAT IS A PERFECT TRANSITION ABOUT THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF MINECRAFT FESTIVAL 2020. WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO THERE?>>IT’S ALWAYS AWESOME WHEN WE GET TO SPEND TIME WITH THE COMMUNITY. OUR PLAYERS ARE SO IMPORTANT TO US AND AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING THAT WE DO. WHEN YOU GET TO BE AROUND PEOPLE WHO ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT MINECRAFT IT’S VERY, VERY CONTAGIOUS SO IT’S SOMETHING THAT WE MISSED GETTING TO MEET WITH PEOPLE AND NOW TO COMBINE SORT OF THE ORIGINAL MINECON WITH AN IN PERSON THING WITH THIS AMAZING SHOW AND THINKING ABOUT HOW TO TAKE EVERYONE ON A JOURNEY.>>AND IT’S IN ORLANDO. SO MY MOM IS VERY HAPPY.>>AND YOU WILL HANG OUT WITH YOUR PARENTS.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING ME IN THE AFTER SHOW. TO THE FOLKS HOME THANK YOU FOR JOINING ME.

  2. I have to understand that the mountains have won, right? 😛 2019: Snow is Snowier but 2026: Minecraft is a system of ones and zeros XD

  3. IDEA: When you sleep if a fox is nearby it will pathfind to you and try to steal an item from your inventory

  4. Talking about how wonderful bees are – proceeding by wasting ~50kg of honey for a stupid challenge. Brilliant!!! One bee produces about a droplet of honey in its WHOLE LIFE; so HOW MANY BEE’s LIFE-WORK has been wasted here?! Seriously people… Think ffs!!! 😖🤬👎

  5. Block by Block: so i can give them my castle i built and they will make it happen in the real world – so i can finally live in my own castle?!? Brilliant!!! Let’s begin right now!!! 👍😜👌
