As you all know, the very popular Minecraft is a videogame which was created by a Swedish developer and developed by a Swedish company called Mojang. The game is all about placing and breaking blocks, but it is also about going out on adventures through the blocky terrain and even battling creatures in “The Nether.”
For those who like to play Minecraft, MineCon is a big deal event where fanboys get to meet and find out more about the game and find out about upcoming video games characters. After skipping the Minecraft fan convention back in 2014, Mojang, who are the developers of the Minecraft game have decided that they are going to be taking part in this year’s convention.
According to gaming news, the studio has already announced that MineCon 2015 is going to take place this summer in UK. To be more specific, the event which is slated to take place at the ExCel London Exhibition and Conference Center will start from 4th of July. According to insiders, over 10,000 tickets to MineCon 2015 will be sold in two separate batches of 5,000, both on the same day.
While the exact day and the time that the tickets to the event will be on sale have not been announced as yet, reports have been surfacing that purchasing the tickets will enable visitors to access a discounted hotel booking system, which is good news for many who are probably going to be at the event from out of town.
Furthermore, those who wish to host their own panel at the MineCon event will have to submit their ideas by March the latest, while exhibitors have been encouraged to contact the developers Mojang with their requests for booth space at the event. For those who are interested in volunteering to be MineCon agents, the application process has already begun.
The first ever Minecraft convention took place back in 2010, where only a small gathering of 50 fans had gathered with Markus “Notch” Persson the founder of Mojang. The following year, the event was able to congregate around 5,000 attendees, which is also called the first official MineCon convention. This was followed by two very successful MineCon events in 2012 and 2013, both of which were successful.
Microsoft had acquired Minecraft last year for $2.5 billion, which is one of the reasons why there was no MineCon event in 2014. But with this latest announcement, all those who love Minecraft will finally get to see their favorite Mojangstas up close and personal at the upcoming video games event.
MineCon 2015 is scheduled to take place at the ExCel Exhibition and Conference Center in London this July. Tickets to the event will be available for sale next month. And for those who are wondering, does anyone even play Minecraft nowadays, you can refer to YouTube’s gaming section for the answer.
