You already can play with thousands of other Minecraft gamers on customized multiplayer areas called servers, but it's kind of a pain.
Microsoft has announced at the E3 2017 presentation that Minecraft is getting a major makeover. Microsoft announced the move Sunday in conjunction with the massive E3 videogame conference. Moreover, players will have to be online and stay online to access the different worlds. Look at a magazine rack and see how many more Minecraft publications there are and how few gaming magazines are still available. That's because any DLC you purchase will be accessible amongst the various devices at no extra charge.
"This means when you buy "Minecraft", you're buying a game that can you can play with friends across devices", said developers. Nintendo owners will henceforth be able to play with Windows owners, who can play with Xbox owners, who can play with iPhone, iPad or Android device owners, who can play with VR edition owners. You either love or hate Minecraft's intentionally low-fi look, but there's no denying it's a huge part of the personality of the most successful game of all time. For example, siblings could play side-by-side in the same vi Xbox could play in the same world as. After all, Nintendo agreed and Microsoft brought the recent Switch release into the unification.
The editions for the four platforms were built with the Java programming language. Additionally, there are no plans to upgrade the Xbox 360 or PS3 versions of the game.
Microsoft's desire for convergence has its limits, though.
This particular change is to emphasize the newfound oneness of the game. Minecraft will get 4K HDR graphics which include improved lighting, shadows, water effects. basically, it'll be like giving your eyes a luxury massage. I know there's something more, but that something more is going to be truly, truly hard for Microsoft to explain the consumers who, in store, can see PS4 Pro - said to be similar in terms of performance or objective - at around $100 less. So Sony not joining for these two games now doesn't bode well for future PS4 games supporting cross-platform play either, meaning Sony players could find themselves playing only among themselves for a while to come.
More graphics is something you could invest some money on, but are you really going to jump in at around double the price of Xbox One S just to have true 4K instead of upscaled 4K?
