'Minecraft's' Better Together Update is Out Now on Most Devices
Minecraft's big "Better Together" update rolls out today on Xbox, PC, VR, and mobile devices. It takes the various versions of Minecraft and consolidates them into one. Players on those platforms can now join each other in-game, browse the Marketplace, join massive multiplayer servers, and more. People who already own the game on supported platforms can download the update for free. Nintendo Switch owners are also getting the update, but they'll have to wait a bit longer. (Sorry, PlayStation 4 fans. Sony has decided to sit out on all the crossplay fun.)
"We’re still working on getting this new version of Minecraft ready for players on Nintendo Switch," Microsft said on the official website. "We want to make sure that everything is ready to bring this platform onboard, and there’s a lot of work to do to make that happen. After all, no one has ever done anything like this before in the history of gaming. We expect to be ready with the free Better Together Update on Switch this winter."
