Minecraft is Getting a Major 4K Update This Fall


During the conference of Microsoft last night, hosted at E3 2017, the support for crossplay has been announced for all versions of Minecraft, except for Sony.

Its Minecraft but not as we know it and it looks simply stunning in the way that only Minecraft can. You can see a new trailer below. Also featured in this update is 4K output for the One X and devices that support the resolution.

Minecraft will also get a 4K update this fall, as will the Super Duper Graphics Pack.

At the same time, Microsoft and Mojang quietly began working to make Minecraft cross-platform by upgrading the Pocket Edition and making it available on PC as the Windows 10 Edition.

The changes come with the "Better Together" update to Minecraft, so named because Microsoft is bringing some relatively isolated versions of the game into the fold. This'll be available to folks playing on Xbox One, Windows 10, iOS, mobile, and VR - essentially every platform that gets our Better Together update.

Sony confirmed on Tuesday it has sold 60.4 million PlayStation 4 consoles since it propelled a little more than three years prior, giving the company a constant popularity in the gaming world.

Lastly, when asked whether PlayStation has shut the door completely on the cross-platform play feature for these two games (possibly for all other games in future)?

This unification plan will also allow for the expansion of the Minecraft Marketplace and the content creator program, as well as the introduction of new in-game Minecraft servers. This Fall, Minecraft will be getting a graphical upgrade which makes the game look super attractive while still retaining its recognizable look. Either way, it's disappointing that PlayStation VR fans won't be able to immerse themselves in Minecraft along with their friends on PC, who can use HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets. Minecraft is launching with four servers, which are Lifeboat, Mineplex, InPVP, and Cubecraft.
