Minecraft is getting cross-platform play

Minecraft

That means cross-console play will be available for players between Microsoft and Nintendo consoles. But that's not all. The Better Together Update brings community marketplace, massive servers and cross-platform play to console this summer, unifying Minecraft across mobile, Windows 10, VR and console! Minecraft Realms is Microsoft's subscription service that allows players to create a dedicated Minecraft world to share with their friends. Weirdly enough, the game's jagged edges and blocky structures look attractive in 4K, as is evidenced by several spots in the trailer revealed at the E3 press conference.

Cross-platform compatibility is the holy grail for Minecraft fans.

With the update, "Minecraft" players who are using Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch will have access to the "Bedrock" version.

You might wonder why PlayStation isn't on this list, and we have some bad news for Sony gamers.

"Online Multiplayer supports up to eight players, and Cross-Network play will be supported as well, allowing Switch players to hit the field with players on Steam and Xbox One". It turns out, Sony is the one blocking its users from playing with people on other systems.

The Last of Us Part II and God of War will nearly certainly be the headliners of the showcase, both representing huge franchises for the PlayStation brand.

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.

In a follow-up tweet, Corden stated; "If you want cross platform Minecraft for PlayStation, bug Sony". Before, only up to five players can adventure together simultaneously. "They'll be able to continue expanding". More servers will follow, but no further information was provided on that front.

Microsoft bought Minecraft in 2014 for $2.5 billion, so it makes sense the Xbox One version is getting some love in the Better Together update.
