For the first time, the “Minecraft” community will have a chance to experience a real-world, immersive, interactive “Minecraft” adventure. To celebrate “Minecraft’s” 15th anniversary, Experience MOD and Mojang Studios have announced “Minecraft Experience: Villager Rescue,” which is set to debut in Dallas Sept. 20, giving long-time Minecrafters, players and non-players of all ages their first chance to be heroes in a real-life, in-person “Minecraft” quest.

“Minecraft Experience: Villager Rescue” will tour to additional cities around the world to be announced. Interested Minecrafters who want to be first to attend can join the waitlist at The waitlist will gain access to the Dallas exclusive presale starting May 31, and tickets go on sale to the public June 3.

“Minecraft” is the best-selling game of all time, with over 300 million copies sold. Players from around the world adventure and create together in their “Minecraft” worlds. Now, with “Minecraft Experience: Villager Rescue” spawning in cities around the world, players can take part in an epic rescue mission and story-based experience where iconic places and creatures from the game are brought to life.

Attendees begin their one-hour journey by entering the forest, where they will learn the ropes, give tips to other players or just bask in the blocky nature. Moving into the village, they will receive their quest and embark on a rescue mission with a team of fellow Minecrafters. On this interactive scavenger hunt, adventurers will journey through multiple biomes while building structures and interacting with mobs – some more friendly than others. Minecrafters can encounter pandas and dolphins and face skeletons, spiders and – of course – creepers. Once they complete their quest, they can kick back and celebrate their heroic feat at the Minecraft Experience Trading Post with a crafty memento from the adventure.
