Minecraft has come a long way since the first Alpha build was released more than ten years ago.
The popular title allows players to craft their universe and face exciting challenges as they play. With over more than 100 million people playing the game each month it is no surprise to learn that it is the most popular game in the world.
The game has been released across a large number of platforms, and it is likely that some gamers are familiar with Minecraft Pocket Edition, a version that was released in the past for smartphones. It was quite popular among mobile gamers even if it was sold at a premium price.
Some players may have been surprised when the game disappeared from app stores in 2017. It was thought that Mojang might have decided to pull the game because the studio didn’t want to work on it anymore, but that is not the case. To reduce the workload and unify the platforms Mojang decided to release the Better Together Update across the Pocket Edition, Windows 10 Editions, Apple TV, Fire TV, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
After the update was released, Mojang decided to merge all the editions under the common name of Minecraft in attempt to avoid confusion. The revamped edition is available on both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
Here are some of the excellent features offered by the title:
