When the new update hits, players will be able to play together regardless of which device the player plays the game on, if they are playing on special designated servers. That's pretty big news.
It's not clear exactly when "Minecraft" will be updated to enable cross-platform play, but it sounds like it's coming sooner than later. The game will also be getting a 4K update that will "bring more graphics options to the game". The Windows 10, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile versions of the game all share the same code. Now that versions of the game on consoles like Xbox One and Nintendo Switch are set to move to Bedrock, the Better Together update could make it significantly easier for more users to play more often. Currently, server access requires complicated log-in procedures. So, too, are the original versions for Mac and Windows, built with the Java programming language.
It's a new concept for "Minecraft" as a platform unto itself rather than a distinct game.
Its Minecraft but not as we know it and it looks simply stunning in the way that only Minecraft can. 4K resolution and improved lighting and textures will make the Scorpio version of the game really shine.
