The Minecraft version for Android, iOS, Windows 10 and Gear VR have received a big update today and this is “Realms”. In other words, the worlds built in the game can now be shared cross-platform, allowing gamers who play different versions to explore each other’s creation with ease.
In other words, if you have a friend who has created a Minecraft world on an Android device, you will be able to load the world on the Minecraft game on your iOS, Windows 10 or Gear VR.
According to Saxs Persson and Lydia Winters from Minecraft team, this a “friendly” update. The two persons from Minecraft have also demonstrated how the cross-platform works, as Winters has played on an iPad, while Persson has jumped into an Xbox Live friend list on a Surface tablet.
Soon enough, they were able to play together and John Carmack (the Doom creator) has joined them via Gear VR. According to Persson and Winters, thanks to Minecraft Realms, you will be able to play when you want, how you want, on whatever device you want.
They have also added that sometime later this, these new Minecraft versions will gain support for MODS and extensions. In other words, it is just a matter of time until these Minecraft versions will support new skins that will replace the zombies with fireball-shooting aliens. It is good to know that these features will also come on the console version of the game sometime in 2017, but more information will be announced during the upcoming MineCon event that will take place in September 2016.
