Now, Mojang Studios has another hit on their hands with Minecraft Dungeons a co-op focused ARPG spin-off set in the expanding Minecraft universe.

To handle all the major announcements and news Mojang Studios has been cooking up, as well as celebrate everything that makes Minecraft great, Mojang Studios is hosting a Minecraft Live event on Oct. 3.

Here's everything you need to know, and how you can tune in to Minecraft Live in 2020:

What is Minecraft Live?

Minecraft Live is an online-only event that any fan and Minecraft player can watch, intended to replace the sadly delayed Minecraft Festival. At the event, viewers will get to learn about new milestones Minecraft has crossed, what the Minecraft Universe is up to, and future changes and / or updates that are in the pipeline for Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons.

We can't say exactly what you can expect to see there, but it's a safe bet we'll learn the results of the ongoing mob vote, as well as the next update for Minecraft.
