Minecraft to get 4K graphics and crossplay update this fall
Sunday 11 June 2017 - 23:49 BST

Microsoft has announced a new update for the building and exploration game Minecraft. The new update will introduce several new features to the game.

The new update will introduce 4K graphics rendering, crossplay support and "massive servers". When the new update hits, players will be able to play together regardless of which device the player plays the game on, if they are playing on special designated servers.
The new graphics update will bring 4K resolution rendering to the Xbox One version of the game. The PC version of the game already supported 4K resolution rendering. Both the PC and Xbox One versions of the game will also be able to make use of updated 4K resolution textures.

The Minecraft "Super Duper Graphics Pack" update launches this fall for PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS and several virtual reality devices. The PlayStation 4 version will not support crossplay multiplayer functionality.
