The title of this post makes it seem like Snowbox just arrived into the Minecraft server scene. That’s quite the contrary as the server has been around for five years and counting. They just celebrated their fifth-year anniversary this past February.
As with any other server, you want to know what makes them special enough to want to join in on the fun. Well, here are a few reasons:
- They have players from different parts of the world. This helps for a number of reasons. First, you can make a new friend from another country. Second, you can feel more comfortable knowing someone speaks the same language as you.
- They are on version 11 as of this writing. The new version of course has new features including a Lobby Spawn World which provides access to the new worlds part of the update. Other new features include a Members Creative World and two SandBox Worlds where one features a natural landscape allowing players to build castles.
Minecraft servers are generally for those who want to play in multiplayer mode. While you can absolutely build worlds by yourself, there’s a certain fun factor when you get to play with others. This way, you can team up in creating a world with features you’re all interested in.
While an online server does allow you to play Minecraft with others, there’s a catch: the version of your game should match the one on the server. So if you want to join in on the fun, make sure your game’s version matches theirs.
Minecraft has come out with a couple of changes recently which surely delighted their dedicated fan base. And while you can always enjoy solo play, why not change things up a bit and give Snowbox a go?
