Mojang's hit PC game comes to next-gen.

Already available and hugely popular on Xbox 360, Mojang is bringing Minecraft to Xbox One, Microsoft confirmed during its E3 press conference.

The Xbox One version, due out during the system’s launch window, will offer “larger maps for more complex structures, expanded multiplayer features, and enhanced gameplay.”

Watch the debut trailer below.

    Yay? Same shit, different platform. (not a slight on the game mind you)

    I hope this doesn’t renew MS’s bullshit timed exclusivity deal. Maybe it’ll only apply to next gen.

      Minecraft: Xbox One Edition.
      Most likely means Sony will get a PS4 version call: Minecraft: No DRM edition

      • Sirithil nos Fëanor

        I’m a fairly big fan of the No DRM Edition that was released years ago to the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race.

  • Vulpis

    I think the headline is backwards here..The handful of people on the Xbone will have one decent game to play, while Minecraft fans cringe at the game being put on a crap system…

    Ive contributed at least 500-600 hors of minecraft myself

    you’re not a real minecraft fan if you only play it on the xbox guess what pc has infinite worlds

  • Gilhelmi

    I swear, the thing that annoyed me most was not allowing “community” maps.

    You could only play someone else’s world if they were playing as well. I know it was to reduce greifing, but just put in place protected block options and maybe tighter control of who can join.

    this isn’t really great news. Just a new version of minecraft that is limited and a new chance to get developers to charge for the same game again and to charge for skin packs that are free for pc. Xbox DONE

  • Seth Forsman

    Mojang needs to release Minecraft on Steam and be done with it. Enough of backing failure systems.

  • mofunzone111

    Mojang needs to update

  • mattwo

    How the hell is that great news?

    Great news is it being available for Wii U and PS4

    • jagger

      great news it might come out on both

  • Lovro Orenda

    they say it’s also coming on ps3 and ps4 when ps4 comes out

  • AJ Ferguson

    This isn’t exactly great news to me. The better and original PC edition is all I care about.

  • Skar

    Pfff. PC version is the best and probably always will be.

    • MyrdilMator

      Yup… you have to pay for every update on xbox FULL FRICKING PRIZE!!!!

      • _pop1200000_

        NOT TRUE

  • Henry

    Only if it has literally EVERYTHING including more players then 8 on a world like in the xbox and ps3 minecraft editions, then it should be good.

  • recliner70
