Minecraft’s Better Together cross-play update now available on Xbox, mobile, VR, Windows 10


Minecraft‘s cross-play Better Together update is now live on Xbox One, mobile, VR and Windows 10 platforms.

The update will allow those on the platforms above to play together, also bringing the Xbox One version into the game’s Bedrock Engine family.

This means players can take their save data across Xbox, mobile, VR and Windows 10, also accessing a unified Marketplace across all platforms.

“[The update] lets you play your Realm on console (for example), hop off, then pick up where you left off on your phone,” a blog post by Mojang explaining Better Together reads.

Better Together will roll out to Nintendo Switch later this year. It will also bring the game to the Bedrock Engine family and feature all the cross-play benefits available to Xbox, mobile, VR and Windows 10.

The only platform not included in this endeavour? PS4. Sony’s blocked cross-play citing security concerns.

We’ll let you know when the Minecraft update hits Switch.
