Microsoft Minecraft update brings more players together
15 June 2017, 02:06 | Dawn Berry
Last night, during the Microsoft conference in which it was shown Xbox One X, it was announced the unification of all versions of Minecraft, that is, the ability to play cross-play across all platforms... except those of Sony.
The Better Together update will bring these two platforms into the Bedrock Engine family for the game, an engine designed for cross-platform play. That's pretty big news.
The company is set to introduce in-game servers allowing players to access one another as well as third-party content from a simple menu. Both the PC and Xbox One versions of the game will also be able to make use of updated 4K resolution textures.
But what does a unified version of Minecraft mean?
Once the update - referred to as the Better Together Update - has been rolled out worldwide, the sandbox adventure will simply become known as "Minecraft" across all platforms.
"We've wanted to integrate cross-platform for ages, essentially making a version of Minecraft that's consistent no matter what device you're choosing to play on". That said, there'll still be a "Minecraft: Java Edition", which refers to the original PC version of the game. InPvP is the final launch partner with Mojang, which is a space themed PvP server with a bunch of minigames.
Thoughts about the Better Together Update for Minecraft?
Microsoft announced on Sunday that it's unifying all versions of "Minecraft".
The game began its journey in 2009 as an alpha version. Update, June 12 at 11:45 a.m.: Adds details about graphics changes coming to Minecraft in the fall. Feel free to sound off in the comments section below!

The developers showed Minecraft with better graphics
Since Microsoft purchased Minecraft in 2014 , many had wondered how the Xbox creator might handle the game on other consoles . We've reached out to Sony for comment, and until we hear from them officially, we should give them the benefit of the doubt.
