Sonic the Hedgehog - Event is Ending

Thank you all for participating in our Sonic the Hedgehog x Hive collaboration! The event is now ending, and we're down for maintenance.

Any cosmetics you unlocked through either the Ring Shop or participating in games and the live event will remain permanently.

We hope you enjoyed the event!

Additional Sonic LIVE Events

We know that some of you couldn't attend yesterday's Sonic LIVE Event, so we'll be running some extra ones to give you all another chance to take part! 

We will be repeating the event, across all regions on Sunday, July 25th at 12PM PDT / 1PM MDT / 2PM CDT / 3PM EDT / 7PM UTC / 8PM BST / 9PM CEST / (Monday, July 26th) 12:30AM IST / 2AM WIB / 4AM JST / 5AM AEST / 7AM NZST

In addition to this, we will be running two region-specific events on our North America and Asia regions:

North America Region: 

Monday, July 26th at 7PM PDT / 8PM MDT / 9PM CDT / 10PM EDT / 2AM UTC / 3AM BST / 4AM CEST

Asia Region:

Join the Sonic LIVE Event!

You don't want to miss this. Join for an amazing live event with FREE rewards, including a much-requested cosmetic!

Join The Hive on Saturday, July 24th at 12 PM PDT / 1PM MDT / 2PM CDT / 3PM EDT / 7PM UTC / 8PM BST / 9PM CEST / (Sunday July 25th) 12:30AM IST / 2AM WIB / 4AM JST / 5AM AEST / 7AM NZST

We recommend you join in advance of the start, and stick around in the hub. Doors will CLOSE at event start; you won't be able to (re)join until the event has ended.

Look at The Hive's server message, or join the hub, for an up-to-date countdown to the start.

Hope to see you there!

Get your free Sonic the Hedgehog skin pack!

Available now on The Hive server, claim your free Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary Skin Pack! This pack comes with two free skins, usable anywhere within Minecraft.

You can find the displays in The Hive hub, left and right of the game NPC's.

If you can't equip the skins from the Marketplace page, head to Profile -> Edit Character -> Classic Skins -> Owned -> Sonic the Hedgehog Skin Pack

Asia Region Capacity

We are seeing record-high demand for our Asia region, which is resulting in a suboptimal experience for players in that region. We will be adding significant capacity in the upcoming days to ensure a smooth Sonic experience.

Thank you all for your kind words regarding the update so far!

Sonic the Hedgehog: Maintenance

The Hive will go down for Sonic the Hedgehog maintenance at:

Monday, July 12th 12PM UTC

We expect to go live with the Sonic experience at 2PM UTC, but this time may be adjusted for technical reasons.

Six party games, over 20 FREE themed Ring Shop-cosmetics, one free global skinpack, and a weekend surprise; this is going to be an event to remember.

Infinite server loading bug: workaround

Recently, players outside of the United States (or those with a custom language set) have been experiencing intermittent issues with the Featured Server list not loading.

To work around this issue, switch your client language to English - US. You will need to restart your client, and in extreme cases reinstall the game, to clear your cache.

Minecraft is aware of this issue and working on a solution.
