Minecraft Introduces Cross-Platform Play In Next Major Update

Mojang explained in an example, "If you buy the Greek Mythology pack on Nintendo Switch, you'll also own it on the mobile, Xbox One and Windows 10 Editions too with no extra charge". The new update will introduce 4K graphics rendering, crossplay support and "massive servers".

Rocket League already counted itself among one of the few games that allowed cross-platform play between PC and a console. "But I got separate info that Sony refused". "We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe", Jim stated.

The PS4 and Xbox 360 versions of Minecraft will retain their platform-specific names, while the Java version will formally be named Minecraft: Java Edition, which is what most players call it anyway.

It's not clear exactly when "Minecraft" will be updated to enable cross-platform play, but it sounds like it's coming sooner than later. Any of the Bedrock versions can work together, said Jesse Merriam, Minecraft's executive producer. Currently, "Minecraft: Pocket Edition for iOS lets you play with friends on Xbox One consoles or PCs".




In the wake of multiple games supporting cross-platform play, Sony PlayStation is defending its decision in not participating in the new initiative. That's why Mojang is giving the game a "super duper graphics" option for those who wanna turn it on.

It's a new concept for "Minecraft" as a platform unto itself rather than a distinct game.

Xbox Live will be uniting the global Minecraft community across mobile, VR, PC, mobile and consoles. While servers are now being used, Mojang is offering official support to community members for the first time, initially partnering with Lifeboat, InPvP, Mineplex, and Cubecraft at launch.

The "Better Together" update indeed comes with numerous advantages. "It will be anywhere that you can play Minecraft in the new version", Egbert said.
