    For a while now our team has been working on a huge new Minecraft project, and today we are excited to announce that Hypixel is coming to China!

    In partnership with our friends at NetEase, we are releasing a "sister" version of the Hypixel Server in China. This version will be separate from the main Hypixel Server, accessible to Chinese mainland players, and fully maintained and operated by the NetEase team.

    NetEase are also the publishers of the official licensed version of Minecraft in China and we are very happy to be working alongside them. NetEase are also known for publishing Blizzard games in China such as World of Warcraft, Overwatch and Hearthstone. NetEase will be operating all of the server hardware, and we are providing the games and content - with both companies working together to bring these games to Chinese Minecraft players.

    This deal represents a huge step forward for our team and the Hypixel Community. China has a massive audience of gamers on PC, many of which already play on Hypixel, and we can't wait to share all of our great Minecraft content with them. Some of our team even visited China for the announcement (the stream was watched by over 1 Million people!), as you can see from these pics!

    See below for answers to some commonly asked questions regarding Hypixel in China. We hope you are as excited as us about this partnership, and the great benefits it can bring to our team. Expect to see lots of new Admin faces on the server very soon!

    ► Questions

    Q. Can players in China play with players outside of China? Will the servers be merged?
    A. No, the main Hypixel Server and the Hypixel China Server are separate servers and players cannot play together across these servers.

    Q. How will this impact the main Hypixel Server and the team?
    A. In terms of our work on the main Hypixel Server, nothing will change, we already provide localization after all! The NetEase team are handling all of the server operations of the Hypixel China Server such as Localization, Moderation and Support among other things. This opportunity does mean that we are able to expand the team - we are hiring more developers and other admins so we can do even more great work this year on the Hypixel Server and beyond! (Currently 54+ Admins Strong!)

    Q. Why are you making a China Server, but not an EU Server (or other areas)?
    A: European servers (or other areas) still remain extremely difficult for us without a "transfer packet" in Minecraft that allows us to transfer players from one server to another. Hypixel China has only been possible because it is a completely separate network deployed in partnership with NetEase (with their own logins system etc). Netease are building and maintaining the server hardware.

    Q. When will the server be playable?
    We will have a specific date soon - but our plan is to be ready for the launch of Minecraft China.

    Q. Will the network be exactly the same?
    For the most part yes, it's the same network - there are however certain small things that will need to be changed to comply with local laws of operation within China. We will have more information on this in conjunction with NetEase at a later date.

    Q. Will all game modes be available on launch?
    A. To ensure a good service (like having good queue times, great localization and so on) - only a limited number of game modes will be available on launch. More game modes will be added rapidly over time.

    Q. Am I able to transfer my ranks and stats to the Chinese Hypixel Network?
    A. No - since it is a different network with separate login systems - it is a fresh start. We are preparing a special "Veteran Package" for Chinese speaking players who logged in before 20th May 2017 - More information on this will be available at a later date. An important note, all Chinese speaking players are welcome to continue to play on the mc.hypixel.net

    Q. How much will Minecraft in China cost?
    Announced yesterday by Netease - in order to bring the possibilities of Minecraft to as many people as possible (and Hypixel is a part of that). The Chinese version of Minecraft operated by Netease will be 100% free.

    Q. What will be the IP to the Chinese version of Hypixel?
    You will be able to directly connect to Hypixel from inside the Minecraft Launcher itself - no IP is actually required!


    As a final note, we want to give a really special thank you to the Chinese speaking community of Hypixel players that already exist - especially those that helped with our localization project. Without their help - this would not have been possible. It was their passion and enthusiasm for our content which caught the attention of NetEase.

    The future is extremely bright, this partnership not only brings Hypixel to more people around the world, but it provides us with additional resources to grow our Admin team working on the Minecraft server.

    谢谢! (Thank you!)
