During E3, Microsoft gave a short opportunity for Mojang to explain Minecraft Realms its improvements, tweaks and features. While the developers may have been busy with the next episode of Minecraft: Story mode, it seems like their primary priority lies elsewhere.
E3 attendees and viewers online got to experience the next big thing for Minecraft Realms when Saxs Persson and Lydia Winters (Minecraft team) came on stage and live tested the game on iPad and Windows device.
The Microsoft-owned Mojang will soon allow “players across iOS, Android, Windows 10” to play online through Minecraft Realms “and share their world with their friends.” Thanks to Xbox Live, a new update called “The Friendly Update” will feature these new improvements and also allow users to host their own dedicated servers just for their friends.
During the presentation, Mojang also confirmed the server sync with Oculus VR player. Minecraft Realms is an online service, which used to allow PC and Mac users to play and build their worlds together. Now, the new update will remove any platform constraints and will allow users from any devices to play with their friends together thanks to Realms.
According to Gotta Be Mobile, Mojang is allowing users to try out Minecraft Realms on a free trial for a month. Click here to access it.
