The highly anticipated release of Minecraft’s Better Together update is finally here! This new version of Minecraft is now available right now to players on Xbox, mobile, VR and Window 10 with Nintendo Switch coming very soon.

But what does this actually mean?

Well, the most awesome thing is that it’s not actually an update, it’s a whole new version of the game that’s been designed to bring all players of the game together.

Possibly, one of the most frustrating things about Minecraft, over the last couple of years, has been that updates to each version of the game gets released at different times, so no version is ever exactly the same. Not only that, but you can’t play with your friends who are on different devices. Well that has all changed!

Here are just some of the “new” features that are available everywhere after today’s Better Together update:

  • Stained Glass

  • Fireworks (with Elytra boost!)

  • Parrots

  • Banners

  • Armor Stands

  • Jukebox and music discs

  • Recipe Book

  • Book & Quill

  • Ravines

  • Zombie Villager spawn egg

And possibly the most exciting news is that the Minecraft Marketplace is now available on all of the devices that are included in the update! On Xbox but want to play Noxcrew content? You can! Want to play DestructoBot 5000 with your friends on Windows 10? You can!

Feeling excited? We are!
