Minecraft Live 2022 is almost here, and we’re totally ready to see our worlds literally changed again. Our Minecraft worlds, that is. Every time there’s a new update, you basically have to delete your world to get everything new. Sob.
Ahead of the Saturday, October 15 broadcast, there’s a popular vote you can take part in, and plenty of speculation to speculate. So let’s go 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 the Glow Squid after Minecraft 2020 live stream and Minecraft 2021 live stream Allay.
Let’s take a look at the three options to help you decide who to vote for:
The Rascal is a cute little mine-dwelling mob that engages you in a game of hide-and-seek – as if the mines weren’t scary enough! If you manage to find it three times in a row (and don’t worry, it will give you clues), you will receive a special prize: an enchanted pickaxe! Extremely useful for people mining for the first time!
The Sniffer, much like the Allay, is meant to help you find things. It’s an ancient mob that looks like a cute little turtle, and you can find it in the game by discovering sniffer eggs in underwater ruins. Their special ability is to be able to “sniff out” long-lost types of plants, discovering new seeds that you can then plant and grow to bring them back to life.
Last year’s crowd vote included a twist on the Golem, and this year’s vote does as well. The Tuff Golem is very cute and very small, and it can hold items for you. It doesn’t seem like a big deal, but they can walk around your base, find an item, pick it up, and then return to their original location. The implications of this feature in Redstone builds are quite exciting! But even better… if you craft a Tuff Golem out of a block of wool, it wears a small cape. Awww!
From the trailer, it looks like Minecraft Dungeons – Mojang’s spin-off RPG – will also be making an appearance. New enemies? New areas? New items? Probably all of the above, if we had to guess!
The next update
2020’s Minecraft Live introduced us to the Caves & Cliffs update, and 2021’s Minecraft Live showed us the Deep Dark biome, Caves & Cliffs Part II, and announced the release date for The Wild update, which was added to the game in June 2022.
So, this year, we will see the sequel. Many fans have theorized what the next update, 1.20, might include – a second part for The Wild, perhaps, or a revamp of The End, like Mojang did with the Nether.
The trailer said “previews”. What are we sneakily watching? Probably next update, new features, new biomes and new blocks!

Birch Forest Improvements
Mojang teased the image above when announcing update 1.19, but later reverted the addition. However, it looks like it’s in the works, so maybe 1.20 is the time for a whole new, much more interesting Birch Forest revamp!
Archeology is making a comeback?
Archeology was originally planned for update 1.17, but never materialized. It’s likely that the pandemic and other unannounced factors led to his indefinite suspension…but perhaps he’ll make a comeback in 2023 instead?
Not likely, since Minecraft’s most famous characters, Steve and Alex, already have an amiibo… but would you say no to a creeper amiibo? Or a Minecraft pig? We certainly wouldn’t.
The ability to link minecarts?
That’s not really a clue, but if the trailer is to be believed, we might be able to minecarts link. NO, IT’S NOT EXCITING. BUT HE IS.
Unfortunately, there is not much more to do. The trailer didn’t include any other clues we could see, but instead featured the Deep Dark, frogs, and guardian from the latest update.
