Minecraft's big cross-platform update is here

The Minecraft Halo content pack is coming to platforms other than Xbox One, including Nintendo Switch

Minecraft is also getting several in-game additions with this update.

Microsoft announced the Minecraft 'Better Together' Update at E3 earlier this year, which would enable cross-platform play with nearly every platform that Minecraft is available on. On those platforms, where the game runs on Mojang's Bedrock Engine, it is now known simply as Minecraft - no colon, no "Pocket Edition" or anything.

Some fans have even started posting memes of the single's similarity to the hit dance pop song "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred. It's like, 'Oh, that's a phase I went through when I was sixteen, ' but like, if a girl was wearing it who looks just like me.

"The fact that somebody would make an assertion that somehow we're not keeping Minecraft players safe", Spencer continued, "I found, not only from a Microsoft perspective but an industry perspective, I don't know why that has to become the dialogue".

Alongside the cross-play capabilities, the update also carries a large number of new features, tweaks, and bugfixes, with the full list available to read on the official announcement page. There's just one single Minecraft, with players across operating systems joining together and playing online.

Saina has a 4-3 record against the Spaniard, however, she has lost the last three matches she has played against the Spaniard. Rio Olympics silver medallist Sindhu continued her good run, recovering from a game down to win 12-21, 21-15, 21-17.

I'm talking about the Minecraft's Halo Mashup DLC pack, which will be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year. Versions of Minecraft that do not support cross-platform play, such as its original Java-based Mac/PC release and its Wii U version, will retain their "Edition" subtitles. If you still want to play the older versions after today, you can launch them separately from the new update.
