Summer is here and we have all been working hard on new content for you guys to enjoy. Today, we're releasing two new maps to Murder Mystery: San Peratico and Aquarium! We have also fixed some bugs with this Murder Mystery update.
Keep reading for more info on all the new changes.
Just a quick update - the Hypixel server now supports Minecraft's latest release version, 1.13 which means that players using Minecraft versions 1.8, 1.9, 1.10, 1.11, 1.12 or 1.13 can log in to Hypixel and play together!
Developer Note:[Due to changes with the Minecraft chunk rendering between 1.8 and 1.9 to support version cross play, we have to render the game world two times although you would never notice the impact it does require extra processing power for the servers. 1.13 brings further changes which means we are required to render the world for a third time.
At the moment, we feel confident we can support all versions after 1.8 with no impact to you the players. However, we are considering dropping support for 1.9 to 1.12 at a later date to make sure we offer the best possible experience for 1.8, 1.13 and future versions of Minecraft. ]
It's worth noting that Hypixel is still optimized for Minecraft version 1.8.9, we aim to support all future version by mirroring the gameplay of this version but for the best player experience, we recommend using 1.8.9. If you're not sure how to change your Minecraft version, we have created a handy Guide [Click Here].
It's not an easy task to make sure we can support the latest Minecraft version so special thank you to @Plancke, @ZeroErrors & @Likaos for making it happen so quickly! Even with our most super-duper troopers on the job, some pesky bugs may arise so please help us squish them by Reporting Bugs HERE.
Hello! Today we have a small update for Arcade Games which includes a new Hide and Seek map and many bugfixes across all games. This update is the second of a few Arcade updates we have planned for this summer!
Added new Hide and Seek Party Pooper map - Pool Party
Hide and Seek Party Pooper Achievement now awards 15 Achievement Points instead of 5
Increased Zombies coin gain by 10x to better reflect its time investment and to be consistent with other Arcade Games
Removed Hide and Seek Toy Store map (it will return for the holidays!)
This coming weekend from 13th to the 15th of July (Event has now ended), we are bringing you...
with 5x COINS
and 5x HYPIXEL EXPERIENCE
for all UHC Quests, UHC Challenges, and all UHC Games played!
As we mentioned in our last post about the Blitz 5x weekend, this will be a continuation of our attempts to interest more people in older game modes.
This time we went with UHC since Nitroholic_ released two great UHC updates recently to improve the game and add additional value for our players. To see Nitroholic_'s updates, see here and here. If you haven't been playing UHC or just felt the game was a bit too overwhelming, hop into the new Vanilla mode - it's a great way to get started in UHC! Just Vanilla UHC - no recipes, extra ultimates, perks or kits, and only 1 row of hearts!
This small incentive will help more players give UHC ago while playing with their friends and enjoying this fantastic game.
We will also be able to present the data that is gathered from these two events in one of our upcoming Developer Summaries. In addition, we will share what we could learn from the two events as well as if and what we can improve.
We just released The Pit v0.3.5 update to the Prototype Lobby.
▶ In a nutshell
New Map: Four Seasons
New Feature: Mystic Well (Custom Item Enhancement)
New Event: Robbery
Lots of balance changes
Developer Note [As spoke about in our July Developer Summary (Here) 1.13 caused a few delays to this update and to make sure you didn't have to wait any longer, we wanted to release the content we have ready.
In May, we hosted Pit Event Contest and we were overwhelmed by the response with over 2500+ submissions. Moving forward to v0.4, we plan to add more of these event ideas and fix any potential bugs that arise from this update.]

It’s time for the next lab rotation which brings the return of Lucky Block mode! We also updated Lucky Block mode to include new effects, an optional resource pack, and more! Along with this, we have made some changes to Mega Doubles, added the player stats, and fixed a lot of bugs.
