During his May 29 upload, YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to fans being sad over the conclusion of his Minecraft series. The Swede revealed his new plans for the sandbox title moving forward. 

PewDiePie surprised viewers by ending his Minecraft series on May 22, stating it would be the last episode in the video’s description. The star explained that he felt the content was getting “dry,” and had plans to move on Terraria.

However during his latest episode of Last Week I Asked You – a segment where he reacts to viewer submissions on Reddit – the YouTuber told disappointed fans that he’s not shutting the door on his fictional Bro Land just yet.

During his latest episode of LWIAY, PewDiePie reacted to several memes about fans being distraught at his decision to end his Minecraft segment. While the series is formally over, the YouTuber explained that it doesn’t mean he won’t ever play it again.

“I’ll still play it! Okay. I will never stop playing Minecraft. Well, that’s a lie. I just feel like I can’t do them weekly if they don’t update the game, he said, before reassuring viewers with a well-timed joke. “I’ll make more episodes. STOP CRYING!” he yelled.

Those still sad about the end of this series are in luck as the Swedish star dropped more news during the episode. Pewds came across another submission where a fan asked him if he could upload his Bro Land save file so that people can experience it first hand.

“You should give people a copy of your world and see what they do with it,” he read aloud, before responding with “Okay, I like that idea! I like that idea a lot. It’s fairly big though. Where can I upload it, like a big file for many people to download it?”

(Topic starts at 8:56.)

So while the Pewds will not be making episodic content around it for now, perhaps his community can come up with some pretty epic creations themselves. After all, who could resist the chance to get to run around with his pet dog Sven and Bengt the fox.

PewDiePie also responded to memes about him playing Minecraft Dungeons instead of Terraria, stating, “I’ll probably still live stream Terraria, but I’ll still upload a video on its own. Because it’s been so long that I’ve played, and I need some help.”

The entertainer’s move to focus more heavily on gaming content comes off the heels of his announcement in May that he is going to focus heavily on streaming in 2020, after exclusively signing with YouTube.


Mr Beast gives away $10k in most ridiculous Minecraft challenge yet

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
