Mojang Bring Crossplay and 4K to Minecraft on Xbox One

Microsoft now owns Minecraft and its parent company Mojang that allows them to experiment with whole lot of new features.

Microsoft also announced that its "Better Together" update will bring more platforms into the cross-platform and saved-data fold, including Windows 10, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, virtual reality and mobile.

Executive producer Jesse Merriam said that their goal is to connect everyone together and this is the driving force behind their advances. You can use the Switch console to play the game in Wifi mode between two friends while also competing with others online on PS4, Xbox One, PC.

Sony's Playstation 4 console will not join this grand cross platform initiative which was kick started by Microsoft. 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. Originally the game was written in Java programming language.

Its Minecraft but not as we know it and it looks simply stunning in the way that only Minecraft can. They don not yet have any updates on Sony but the definitive goal is to bring all Minecraft players together, which is their main principle.
