Gamers have been anticipating the release of Minecraft on the Xbox One ever since the console was released. Now that the game is here, let’s take a look at what’s changed.
If you’ve ever played Minecraft, and seriously, who hasn’t, then you will know that nothing within the formula really needs changing. Minecraft is a game about exploration, building, and of course surviving. If you are one of the few who haven’t at least been exposed to the game, you could think of it like a computer game version of LEGO. You collect blocks, rearrange them, use them to make new blocks, and fight off monsters at night time. You also have to manage resources, your health, and your hunger.
The Xbox one version of Minecraft has refined the experience, rather than reinventing the wheel. The graphics have been updated with a resolution increase, and the world now loads more chunks to add to the viewing distance. There are also new texture packs to download, allowing you to customize the look and feel of your world.
Players will also appreciate the further streamlining of the game interface. Menu structures have been made easier and more intuitive, and crafting or navigating through items is now better than ever.
If you own an Xbox One, it’s high time you tried out this game. It offers endless replay value, and is quite possibly one of the most unique and enjoyable games of the last 10 years.
