Spring Update

Spring has arrived on The Hive!

New Hub

The hub is in full bloom! As well as the hub being covered in colorful fauna, some of the characters and models that you know and love have also been given a new lease of life, be sure to look out for them!

Rumour has it there's even a new parkour run to try out and a new hub title for those that manage to complete it!

Spring Maps

This update sees the return of many seasonal maps, as well as the addition of some new ones! Be sure to check out the newly decorated game lobbies as well.

Survival Games Map

We've released the second of two new maps as part of our Survival Games update - Blossom! This map is a permanent addition to Survival Games and will be sticking around after Spring.


In-Game Surveys

We use a lot of different ways and channels to collect feedback: this website, Discord, the forums, YouTube and others. We're now introducing a new way to poll our players directly: in-game surveys.

Surveys are delivered to players using MailBot and triggered by a combination of chance and defined criteria. For example, our first SkyWars Update Survey polls 1-in-5 players that are level 10 or above.

Below is our first survey that we're running right now (again, not all players will receive this one!). You will see these from time to time as we gather more feedback on game updates, maps, future updates, and anything else!


Lunar New Year

It's time to celebrate Lunar New Year!

New Hub

To ring in the Year of the Ox, we've decorated the hub! We've also made some changes to the parkour.

Banner Hunt

We've hidden 12 banners around the hub, each one of them features an animal from the Chinese zodiac: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.

If you manage to find them all, there might be a special costume in it for you!

Happy Lunar New Year!

Winter Update! New hub, hub quest, and many new maps!

It's winter time in The Hive!

New hub

This years winter hub is our most expansive change yet - make sure you explore it! One good way of doing this is participating in our...

Santa Hub Quest

Santa needs your help! Rather than our usual hub hunt, we've taken it to the next level with a fully featured in-hub quest. Finish all 6 objectives and get amazing rewards!

Head to the workshop below the spawn area in the Hub to get started.

Winter Maps

With 36 returning and new Winter maps, this our largest selection of seasonal content ever. On top of this, lobby and other additional maps have also been wintered up.


Enjoy!

Maintenance - November 2nd

We will be performing extensive backend maintenance today, November 2nd.

This only concerns boring, non-visible technical aspects of The Hive - no public facing changes or features will be introduced.

We currently do not have an estimated time of completion.
