Who else expected the Minecraft team to pop out at E3 for a Minecraft Realms announcement, right after Xbox Live?. While Mojang’s upcoming Minecraft Story Mode Episode 6 has already been explained in detail through its official blog post, the studio seems to have bigger plans for Realms.
Minecraft Realms to provide cross-device plan
The developers came on stage to reveal their plans to release a new update for the Minecraft Realms server, which will allow builders on any platform (Pocket or Windows 10) to log in and play with their friends. After the update, users won’t be constrained by platforms and will be connected throughout the world as a Minecraft family.
While it may seem too good to be true, the developers took the time to reveal that it’s already under construction. Audience got to see for the first time Pocket users tagging along with Windows 10 users in the Realms servers. Moreover, the server will be secure as “only people you invite can join your world, and what you do there is up to you: create, survive or compete.”
In a recent post on Mojang, the developers have confirmed the release of new add-ons along with the update. Moreover, Realms will be available as a free trial version for a whole month.
Mojang’s developers also tested out other features at E3. Although it’s a bummer that many builders missed the live stream, here’s a recorded video of the Microsoft press conference during E3. You can check out the video below.
