    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 store.hypixel.net. 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
