Minecraft is getting ‘Super Duper’ 4K graphics and cross-system servers

New, 5 comments

Minecraft is getting a new look this fall with a “Super Duper Graphics Pack” update that adds more realistic textures, light effects, and graphics to the popular block building game, including full 4K resolution on the Xbox One X console. Were you concerned about the lack of ultra-realistic water with reflections in Minecraft until now? Well, worry no longer.

Also announced was the Better Together Update, which adds a new community marketplace for players to sell creations, new in-game servers to play together, and an interesting first — cross platform play between different platforms, including Xbox One, Windows 10, the Nintendo Switch, and a variety of mobile devices.

The 4K graphics is set to release this fall, with the rest of the Better Together features coming soon.
