This year's Minecon replacement - Minecraft Live - is taking place this year on 3rd October and promises to feature plenty of updates and scoops about the insanely popular sandbox game.

That's not all, though. In addition to this, the team will reveal the next big Minecraft game update. Here's exactly what Mojang's chief storyteller Lydia Winters had to say:

But I'll just say, you don't want to miss the beginning of the show."

As noted, this is related to the "next big Minecraft game update", so in other words - try not to get your hopes up for a Steve for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate announcement, even if Microsoft really digs Nintendo's all-star brawler.

Alongside this update, Mojang will also allow the community to vote for a new mob to enter the game. To find out more information about this upcoming live show, visit Below are the global times:
