Minecraft is Finally getting Cross-Play on Consoles and PC

Minecraft is Finally getting Cross-Play on Consoles and PC”

Minecraft is obviously a global phenomenon, with over 100 million copies sold as of last June.

Microsoft made some announcements at E3 this weekend, and one of which focused on the upcoming "Better Together" update for the very popular "Minecraft" game.

Executive producer Jesse Merriam said that their goal is to connect everyone together and this is the driving force behind their advances. It's odd to think of Minecraft's crude, blocky figures as something in need of high-end graphics, but the fall change will endow the game with high-resolution 4K graphics support so it'll look better playing on big-screen TVs, Microsoft said.

Now with Rocket League heading to the Nintendo Switch and getting cross-platform play, it was revealed that Sony, once again, had denied cross-play between their platform and the others. A Nintendo Switch logo was shown during a briefing, and Mojang confirmed in a blog post that the Better Together Update will make allow for cross-platform with Nintendo Switch.

The editions for the four platforms were built with the Java programming language. All the Bedrock versions now are simply being called "Minecraft", while the Java-based versions will be called Minecraft Java Edition.

Multiplayer is without a doubt one of the aspects of Minecraft that keeps players coming back.

"We can't speak for Sony", Minecraft communications boss Aubrey Norris told GamesBeat. These improvements, including 4K treatment, will be part of the "Super Duper Graphics Pack", available this fall. The new update will introduce several new features to the game.
