Latest News & Updates From MINECON 2016

Hey gamers!

Whew! We’re tired, that’s for sure. Here at Minecon 2016 we’ve been running around like a couple of crazy people trying to meet everyone and experience all of the awesome stuff Minecraft and Mojang has put together for us!

In that vein, we’ve been taking a lot of notes over the weekend to help put together this blog post, to outline the latest news and additions coming / released from MINECON 2016. We hope this list helps you prepare for Minecraft in the future, and hopefully give you some great ideas to put together on your Minecraftserver.net server!

Minecraft Chinese Mythology Mash-up


Coming to us on Oct 4, existing owners of Minecraft: Console Edition will be able to download the new Chinese Mythology Mash-Up pack for just $4.99. This pack will include a pre-made world that features an ancient city with dragons dwelling in the high mountains of the world.

It will also include 41 brand-new skins, 13 themed music tracks for your world, and a special map for the Battle mini game. With this new mash-up you’ll get a free update that’ll introduce polar bears and their babies roaming through the frozen biomes, new items, blocks, banners, and terrain generation! Check it out in the video below.

VR & Boss Fights!

If you’re into VR like we are here (HTC VIVE FTW!), you’re going to be really excited about this next update. Coming Oct 18th to the Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta, Minecraft Pocket and Minecraft Gear VR Edition, are the very first boss battles for Minecraft, which includes tweaks and changes to the Elder Guardian, Wither Boss, and more.

Along with the VR and boss battles, you will also now have “Addons” which will be simple text files that allow you to tweak the world of Minecraft. You will be able to download free examples on Minecraft.net in the future.

New Input Options

Also during the Oct 18th update, we should be expecting some new input options for Minecraft, including the Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth, along with Oculus Touch support coming shortly thereafter.

Minecon is Coming!

MINECON is coming!!!

Hey Minecrafters, hope you’re having a good Friday! We here at Minecraftserver.net are excited for 2 reasons:

1.) The weather here in our NY location is great and we might finally get out to catch some Pokemon!
2.) Minecon is getting CLOSER!!!!!!

It’s tough to keep the excitement under wraps, especially in our team Slack feed. Lots of good ideas coming for 2017 for sure. If you’re not going, don’t worry, you can join in the festivities remotely using the power of internet streaming video. Watch the event live from the Mojang MINECON site on the 24th and 25th September.

If you are going, you should probably take a moment to check out the Mojang MINECON Schedule and get prepared to plan out your experience!

We're Going to Minecon

See You at Minecon 2016!

That’s right folks, you think we’d miss out on another Minecon in the US? No way! We loved attending Minecon 2015, and we couldn’t wait to get back.

This year, we’ll be sending Jake T, our CEO and Founder, out into the crowd to meet and greet all of you Minecrafters. If you see him, be sure to say hello!

In addition to that, we’ll be sure to have our Minecraftserver.net banner up, and be sure to use the special coupon code useful for any Minecon attendees, exiting customers or not!

We can’t wait to see all of the events and photos coming from this year’s Minecon, and if you haven’t already, be sure to head over to Mojang’s Minecon 2016 website to check out all of the details.
