The Better Together Minecraft game update is here! Play the new Minecraft on Xbox, mobile, VR and Windows 10 today!
The big day is finally here! It’s probably the most significant update we’ve made in Minecraft’s recent history — we’re releasing a new version of the game that lets players on Xbox, mobile, VR and Windows 10 play together! It lets you access oodles of player-made goodness on Marketplace! It lets you take that Marketplace goodness from one device to another! And that’s just the stuff we’re doing on top of the core game itself. This new version of Minecraft also introduces the supported platforms to parrots, banners, armour stands, stained glass, fireworks, new world start options, new game rules, host options, the recipe book and loads, loads more.
We’ve got loads more cool stuff to show you with this new version of Minecraft — for example, did you know you can share invite links to Realms now? Except on Xbox One — we’ll be getting that working in the very near future. You can get this fancypants new version of Minecraft for free if you already own an edition of Minecraft for Xbox One, and you’ll get the Better Together Update automagically on Android, iOS and Windows 10. If you own the Xbox One Edition of the game on disc, be prepared for a short wait before your free download of the new Minecraft is available — we’ll work as fast as we can, but it may take a day or two to process all the requests! We’re still working on getting this new version of Minecraft ready for players on Nintendo Switch. We want to make sure that everything is ready to bring this platform onboard, and there’s a lot of work to do to make that happen. After all, no one has ever done anything like this before in the history of gaming.
We expect to be ready with the free Better Together Update on Switch this winter. Got questions about how this update works, how to get it, what it means for you or what happens to your old stuff? Check out our newly updated FAQ! Got feature requests, comments or feedback?
Bug fixes: Too many to mention. My favourites are: making cats purr again, preventing bats from swimming underwater and stopping llamas from creepily turning their heads to stare at you while riding them. We can’t wait to see what you all build together! 65 update, which should be out now amongst PS4 users, addresses an issue where Norse Mythology music was not playing despite players purchasing the content and restarting the game. This update comes on the heels of the Minecraft 1. 64 update, which added the aforementioned Norse Mythology Mashup Pack as well as some other skins, a new horse model and dyeable horse amor. For the full patch notes for both update 1.
