Minecraft convention MineCon set for November in Vegas

0

Mojang gauged interest in a Minecraft convention a few months back, and now the event, dubbed MineCon, is official. It'll take place on November 18-19 -- which is when the game's full release will happen -- at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, reports PC Gamer.

Registration and full event details will be available next week. "I'm really looking forward to getting up on stage and pushing the button to upload the final build," says designer Markus Persson. That alone sounds hilariously fun to me; buttons make everything better.

"We'll just go back home and keep working on Minecraft directly after MineCon, but it does represent a huge milestone where the game finally leaves beta, something we'd never been able to do without our fans, so it feels natural to celebrate it with them."
