Almost nine years on from the launch of The Minecraft Project on YouTube, Tom ‘Syndicate’ Cassell has revived the series for its fourth season.

One of the protagonists responsible for Minecraft’s success on YouTube is Syndicate — predominantly thanks to his flagship series, ‘The Minecraft Project.’

From its humble beginnings back in 2011 to an expansive world in 2020, The Minecraft Project has come a long way.

The Minecraft Project: Season 4

On January 21, Syndicate “welcomed our faces back” with ‘The Minecraft Project #401’ — after an almost six year hiatus from his custom realm.

Still in all of its custom texture glory, Cassell revealed his reasoning for rebooting his trademark Minecraft series.

The YouTuber will be embarking on his journey to defeat “the underwater boss” (likely referring to the Elder Guardian), alongside obtaining the Elytra during the season.

Tom stated that there is no definitive deadline on the series, as it’s “in the hands of the Minecraft gods.”

Moreover, he explained how there will be two significant twists on the season’s plot.

Firstly, fans keeping tabs on his progress will be able to devise a ‘penalty’ should he die at the hands of those pesky, blocky foes.

Considering that there is currently no real price to pay other than losing loot and having to respawn back at your designated location, this will likely keep fans engaged while simultaneously setting up some entertaining moments.

Syndicate teased The Minecraft Project’s triumphant return with a nostalgic look into the world before Season 3.

Secondly, the YouTuber also explained that he would be cutting the “tedious tasks” (such as obtaining materials) from each video, in-line with trying to make Season 4 more compelling than previous iterations.

Syndicate’s reboot of The Minecraft Project comes a mere week after he teased fans with a trip down memory lane during a guided tour of his famous realm from the pre-mod era of Season 3.

The Season 4 debut was met with open arms, and episode 401 soon made it onto YouTube’s trending page — showing the clear demand for his popular series.

Red Bull Leipzig right-back Nordi Mukiele has got a pretty nice Rulebreakers card in FIFA 21, and you get your hands on it by completing five objectives. 

After a few loading screen teasers, the Rulebreakers promo has gone live in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and though its not as wild as some players speculated it would be, it has brought some interesting changes.

The Harry Kane card is, obviously, the pick of the bunch given his increased pace, but you’ll need some serious pack luck to get him.

However, one player you don’t need luck to get is Red Bull Leipzig right-back Nordi Mukiele. The French defender’s Rulebreakers card is available, for free, via the objectives page, and we’ll run you through it with his in-game stats and the challenges you’ve got to complete.

Compared to his normal card, the Rulebreaker version of Mukiele has increased speed, passing, dribbling, and physical. However, his defending stats have been reduced ever so slightly.

If you’re looking for a different option to say, Kevin Mbabu, the Leipzig full-back is a stellar choice, and it makes all the much better this new card is free thanks to the objectives. 

All you have to do, to get your hands on him, is complete the objectives that are listed below. You’ll also receive some packs and XP bonuses too for each objective that you tick off. 

Rulebreakers Mukiele objectives

  • Crossing Charms: Assist 4 goals with Crosses using Bundesliga players in the Live FUT Friendly: Rulebreakers Classic
  • Defensive Delivery: Assist 5 goals with French Defenders in the Live FUT Friendly: Rulebreakers Classic

As you can see, all of these challenges have to be completed inside of the Live FUT Friendly: Rulebreakers Classic. To get into said friendly, you have to go through the play menu inside FIFA Ultimate Team and scroll all the way to Friendlies. 

In there, you go to Play Online, and you’ll then have the option to select the Rulebreakers Classic friendly – provided your team has at least five Bundesliga players and one French player. If you meet the requirements, you’ve got until November 3rd to get the card.
