What is an Adventure Map?
Minecraft maps are adventure based experiences that players can complete and explore, usually following a narrative, though not always the case. The main thing is that maps are rarely survival based, offering a game inside the Minecraft experience, using its mechanics as a starting point.
Some maps are games in their own right. Others are collections of mini-games which players can play on their own or with friends. There are also exploration or collection maps, where players explore a specifically designed landscape collecting treasure.
The possibilities are endless!
