Better Together Update Rolling Out This Summer

Playstation E3 2017

Servers such as Lifeboat, one of the biggest mobile-based Minecraft servers, will now act as social meeting places for players on all platforms, with collections of community mini-games. This means that those playing on the Xbox One and Switch will no longer be constrained to about 3 miles of space in every direction.

I've asked Sony if it refused Microsoft's offer to enable cross-platform support on the PS4 version of Minecraft, and I'll update this story with any new information. According to the company, these servers have monthly users numbering in the millions. There are now more than 55 million users who play Minecraft every month. Additionally any content that is purchased on older versions of the game, will be available across devices.

With the summer update, Minecraft for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch gaming consoles also will become bedrock versions.

Minecraft spokesperson Aubrey Norris - following the announcement - tweeted out the following tweet about wanting to get PlayStation on board, suggesting that it is on Sony that it is not included in the new cross-play feature. "We want PlayStation and we invite Sony to bring PlayStation players onto Bedrock, but we can't get any further into - these are confidential discussions".

Microsoft and Mojang hope the new update will help achieve their vision of making the game a true creative platform.

Whatever the case, it could be unwise to get off the train of one of the most popular games of all time.

Microsoft made its position on the matter clear shortly after the cross-platform update was announced.

Code-named Project Scorpio, the rival of the PlayStation 4 Pro will launch alongside the latest instalments of classic games including Minecraft and Assassin's Creed.

'The PS4 platform is in its prime, with the industry's best lineup of exclusive and partner titles slated to release this year, taking full advantage of the power of the PS4 system, ' Sony Interactive Entertainment global chief executive Andrew House said.

In the fall of 2017, Microsoft will begin selling an a downloadable Minecraft extra, the Super Duper Graphics Pack, with cloud shadows, hazy atmospheres and reflecting water. Well, because it has once again brought up a topic which has been a thorn in the side of Sony this console generation: cross-play. For example, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will simply be retitled as Minecraft. Merriam added that more players can adventure together on the Server experiences.
