Minecraft Live 2022 is almost here and we’re all set to literally change our world once again. Our Minecraft world, that is. Every time a new update comes out, you basically have to clear your world to get all the new stuff. Sobbing sound.
Before the broadcast on Saturday, October 15, there is a crowd vote that you can participate in, and a variety of speculations to speculate. So let’s get into it already!

What to expect from Minecraft Live 2022
A vote between three new mobs for the game will take place on October 14. This crowd vote is how we got it. Glowing ink after the 2020 Minecraft Live stream and Allay from the 2021 Minecraft Live Stream.
Let’s go over three options to help you decide who to vote for:
Rascal is a cute little mining mob that lures you into a game of hide and seek – as if the mines weren’t creepy enough yet! If you try to find it three times in a row (and don’t worry, it will give you hints), then you’ll get a special prize: An enchanted pickaxe! Extremely useful for first time miners!
Sniffer, like Allay, is all about helping you find things. He’s an ancient mob that looks like an adorable little turtle, and you can find him in the game by spotting sniffer eggs in the underwater ruins. Their special ability is being able to “sniff” long-lost plants, uncovering new seeds that you can plant and grow to restore them to life.
Last year’s crowd vote included a turning point for Golem, and so did this year’s vote. Tuff Golems are cute and very small, and they can hold items for you. That may not sound like a big deal, but they can move around your base, find an item, pick it up, and then return to the original location. The implications of this feature in redstone builds are pretty cool! But even better… if you make a Tuff Golem using a block of wool, he wears a little cape. Oh!
From the trailer, it seems Minecraft Dungeons – Mojang’s spin-off role-playing game – will also appear. New enemy? New areas? New products? Probably all of the above, if we had to guess!
Minecraft Live of 2020 introduced us to Caves & Cliffs update and Minecraft Live 2021 showed us Deep Dark biome, Caves & Cliffs Part II, and release date announcement for The Wild updateadded to the game in June 2022.
So this year, we’ll see what’s next. Many fans have theorized about what the next update, 1.20, might include – a season two for The Wild, perhaps, or an overhaul of The End, like Mojang did with the Nether.
The trailer says “sneak peek”. What are we sneaking a peek at? Maybe the next update, new features, new biomes and new blocks!

Improve birch forest
Mojang teased the image above in the 1.19 update announcement, but later pushed back on the addition. Looks like it’s done, though, so maybe 1.20 is the time for a brand new, much more exciting birch forest reclamation!
Is archeology back?
Archeology was originally planned for update 1.17, but never materialized. It’s likely that the pandemic plus other unannounced factors have resulted in it being stowed indefinitely… but maybe it’ll come back in 2023?
Not likely, because of Minecraft’s most famous characters, Steve and Alex, had amiibo…but would you say no to an amiibo creeper? Or a Minecraft pig? We certainly won’t.
Possibility to link minecarts?
It’s not much of a suggestion, but if the trailer is to be believed, we can minecarts link. NO, SOUND IS NOT HOT. BUT IT IS.
Unfortunately, there’s not much more to go on. The announcement trailer doesn’t include any other hints we might see, but instead introduces the arrival of Deep Shadows, frogs, and Guardians from the previous update.
