HO HO HO! It's December, and the season of giving has arrived on Hypixel in the form of this Huge Holiday Update - OUR BIGGEST SEASONAL UPDATE YET!

This year we focused our energy on creating a wide variety of content across the server including new games, new maps, a cross-lobby treasure hunt, cosmetics and more! Read on to find out all the details.

New Arcade Game – Grinch Simulator
Grinch Simulator is a brand new Arcade Game inspired by parkour and collection. You play as a Grinch – an evil Christmas creature whose only desire is to ruin the holiday for everyone.

You must steal presents from houses across a randomly generated map. The Grinch who steals the most presents by the end of the game wins!

On your hotbar you'll find a Map item which shows Presents (squared), other players (red markers) and yourself (blue marker). You also have snowballs which slow other players down, and can punch people to knock them back.

Will you ruin Christmas the most and become the ultimate Grinch? Find out by playing Grinch Simulator now in the Hypixel Arcade lobby.

New Arcade Game – Christmas Build Battle
Love Build Battle? We've created a special festive version of it featuring new Christmas maps and over 100 festive themes.

You may find yourself building a Reindeer, a Snowman, a Christmas Tree, or something else equally seasonally appropriate. If you build something awesome, make sure to share it with us on the forums or on Twitter :D

Can you be the best Elf Builder in Santa's Workshop? Find out now in the Arcade lobby!

Returning Game – Santa Says
A few members of the community asked for this, so we were happy to oblige. For the holiday months we have replaced Hypixel Says in the Arcade with Santa Says, the original festive-themed version from last year. Enjoy!

Christmas Lobby + Present Hunt Quest
It's back and snowier than ever! The Hypixel Christmas lobby returns for another year with all your favorite fun attractions.

We've also added a treasure hunt across all the lobbies of Hypixel! In the Main Lobby you'll find a Santa Claus NPC. Just right-click Santa to start your present-hunting quest. If you find all 30 presents (1 per lobby, and 12 in the main lobby) you'll get a reward! Can you help find all of Santa's 30 missing presents?

Christmas Mystery Boxes, Gifts, New Cosmetics
Last year's Christmas Mystery Boxes are back and available to buy in store with a twist - we've added lots of new cosmetic items for you to enjoy. You can find new cosmetics like Animated Hats, Suits, Gadgets, a new Emote and Gesture, and 2 new Housing Themes (COMING SOON) - all based around Winter, Christmas and New Year.



We also added Christmas Gift boxes, so you can send Christmas cosmetics to your friends. The best gift is the gift of giving! :p

Christmas Mystery Boxes and Gift Boxes are available to purchase now on Some boxes will also drop from games and be available as rewards from the Delivery Man throughout the holiday - the higher your Rank, the more boxes you'll receive.

Re-Themed SkyWars Maps
As if the above wasn't enough, we decided to spread the holiday cheer around. We've re-themed SkyWars maps Tribute and Shire with a delightful festive twist, which are available to play in the SkyWars lobby.

Later this month we will be releasing new maps for Mini Walls and Farm Hunt. Yes, you read that correctly: NEW FARM HUNT MAPS! :)


This is our BIGGEST EVER HOLIDAY UPDATE, and we'd love to hear what you think. If you find any nasty bugs or issues please let us know in the appropriate forum.

This holiday season represents the end of a really big year for us, and we'd like to thank you all for staying along for the ride - we think 2017 is going to be the most interesting year for Hypixel yet!

Thanks for reading, thanks for supporting, and thanks for playing <3 :D

  • The bow and blaze rod icons are now swapped in the Insane mode pregame lobby
  • Ranked games now count for Solo Quests

  • Your Ranked rating will now appear in your lobby scoreboard if you played Ranked that season
  • Spawn chests in Team and Mega modes will now all contain a weapon and some blocks
  • Corrupted pearls will now have a 30s initial cooldown instead of 60s
Bug Fixes

  • The Enderdragon in Onionring 2 used to just stays in the middle and would not fly around
  • Fixed Snowmen dying on desert biome maps like Onionring
  • Perks that give absorption would only give one heart instead of two
  • Ender Mastery IV would reduce Ender pearl damages by 100% instead of 80%
  • Holding an item while dying would make you keep the item as a spectator
  • Players could use the /me command in games
  • Players could use the corrupted pearl before the end of the initial cooldown using an exploit
  • Shooting your own teammates with your bow could create a silverfish apocalypse
  • Other minor bugs

And that's everything included in this new patch. We hope you enjoy the new kits, changes, features and fixes, and as always we hugely appreciate your support as a community - many of these changes came directly from you guys!
