During their E3 press conference yesterday, Microsoftannounced that Minecraft will be supporting cross-platform play, unifying players on console, mobile, Windows 10 and VR builds of the game. 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. 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. Community run servers will also be allowed across the platforms.
There's a simple reason, of course, that more games don't work across platforms: Business.
To avoid confusion, Microsoft will call the game's Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile versions simply as "Minecraft".
Additionally, an update for Minecraft this year will add 4K support and more graphical options. While servers are now being used, Mojang is offering official support to community members for the first time, initially partnering with Lifeboat, InPvP, Mineplex, and Cubecraft at launch.
Microsoftsaid the Super-Duper Graphics Pack will hit Xbox One X and Windows 10 versions, although it didn't specify whether which other platforms will receive it.
Microsoft also detailed changes coming to Minecraft graphics this fall in another update. Microsoft's aspirin will come this summer, though, when Minecraft will get a built-in server browser that makes servers easier to discover and use, said Minecraft marketing leader Emily Orrson.
