French President Launches His Own Minecraft Server

On the hunt for votes Emmanuel Macron casts his net into the ‘net

Minecraft’s popularity never seems to slide. The 2022 New Year celebration brought new maps for players and now even the president of France is launching a Minecraft server.

Current French president Emmanuel Macron, is running for re-election and as part of his campaign, he has launched his server to help spread his message to an even wider audience.

His official Twitter account posted a tweet that promised that he is “with you on Minecraft” alongside a 39 minute video that contains a preview of the server itself. It features the Élysée Palace, the traditional home of the French president and it’s stamped with France’s national motto “liberté, égalité, fraternité,” which translates to “life, equality, fraternity.”

Other parts of the video show the recreated interior of Macron’s campaign office which has been adorned with his re-election posters.

Of course, none of this should be surprising. Macron’s Minecraft server is part of a broader effort to reach out to increasingly detached younger voters as the official campaign for the French election gets underway.

However, we can only wonder at how this glimpse of politics making its first steps into the metaverse may eventually manifest itself.
