Minecraft provides a world of wonder for adventurers on their own But it also provides groups the perfect platform to work on and even break up. Mojang, a developer, has made it easier to host a group of friends by allowing cross-platform play between Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition or Minecraft: Pocket Edition. You can now have up to five players in the same game on a local network using their PC, iOS or Android devices. Microsoft's new OS offers another reason to be excited: the Windows 10 version now supports five-person online multiplayer through Xbox Live. Tech news and more Microsoft has put a ton of work into its new Xbox app for Windows 10 -- it's desperate to show that the OS is a worthy upgrade for PC gamersand this will help novices to create collaborative builds.
Minecraft: Pocket Edition is now available to those who are hooked to their phone or tablet. Mojang has updated the touch controls and added controller support. It also has a dedicated screen to map buttons. Additionally you can now access the enigmatic "Nether" dimension and enjoy enhanced weather effects, such as rain that is directed and sprinting and sneaking. It's easy to forget just how popular Minecraft has become. But as Mojang's Minecon convention demonstrated this year that the Minecraft community has, in fact, never been stronger every iterative update as significant as the last.
