Popular content creator Daniel ‘DanTDM’ Middleton impressively managed to “complete” Minecraft while playing the iconic sandbox game on Hardcore mode.

Although it’s over a decade old, Minecraft has enjoyed a resurgence on YouTube in recent years. The classic title provides players with endless possibilities to create their own world and many top content creators, including YouTube king PewDiePie, have made their return over recent years.

DanTDM has also been at the forefront of Minecraft content, now boasting over 22 million subscribers.

Minecraft is one of the most popular games of all time.

Minecraft does not have a traditional story mode, though, that can be completed as with other games. But, DanTDM decided to give it his best shot at achieving as much as possible, documented in his January 18 upload.

DanTDM set out to complete all of the achievements in Minecraft while playing through the game on Hardcore mode, meaning that he could not afford to die during his attempt or the world would be lost forever.

The YouTuber revealed that the challenge he had set out for himself was perilously difficult, claiming that the video capturing his attempt took longer to create than any of his previous uploads.

“This video by far has taken me the longest to create than any of my other videos on my channel,” he revealed, before attempting the final achievements, “but everything was almost set in place to complete Minecraft hardcore 100% without dying.”

He only had the final three achievements to complete; A Furious Cocktail, A Balanced Diet, and how did we get here. These included tasks such as eating every single food item within the game, and it took him even longer than expected to acquire everything that was needed.

He finally managed to get it done, however, and expressed his relief after essentially finally putting the challenging tasks behind him, “We did it, oh my goodness, I thought I done it wrong.”

Although he managed to complete all of the current achievements in-game during his hardcore run, it is likely that Mojang will add even more for him to complete in future updates.

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.
