Minecraft is going totally cross-platform

Minecraft is Finally getting Cross-Play on Consoles and PC

E3 2017 'Minecraft': New trailer reveals cross-platform and 4K update

Not only will every console platform and PC finally be united onto one server. And with more than 100 million copies of Minecraft sold, it's a good bet plenty of people will try the servers.

During their E3 press conference yesterday, Microsoft announced that Minecraft will be supporting cross-platform play, unifying players on console, mobile, Windows 10 and VR builds of the game.

Executive producer Jesse Merriam said that their goal is to connect everyone together and this is the driving force behind their advances. This also means someone on Switch can play with someone on an iPhone or Xbox One, and your purchases in the game even carry over from one device to the other. That will include all products under Microsoft, of course, and the Nintendo Switch's version of the game as well.


One of the biggest games in the world is doing something no game has done before: connecting all of its players, regardless of platform. All of these servers will be available when the Better Together update launches this summer, and Mojang have confirmed they hope to bring on more server partners as time goes on. Originally the game was written in Java programming language. All the Bedrock versions now are simply being called "Minecraft", while the Java-based versions will be called Minecraft Java Edition.

"We can't speak for Sony", Minecraft communications boss Aubrey Norris told GamesBeat. Meanwhile, "Minecraft" will also get a 4K update this fall, as will the Super Duper Graphics Pack. Weirdly enough, the game's jagged edges and blocky structures look lovely in 4K, as is evidenced by several spots in the trailer revealed at the E3 press conference.
