Minecraft’s new update called “Better Together” has been officially launched on PC, Xbox One, and Mobile platforms. The new major update brings a plethora of new features and bug fixes. On top of that, the new update also enables cross-platform. That means players of all platforms can play with each other, no matter what platform they’re on. According to Mojang, the new update will also release on the Nintendo Switch soon.
The update adds a lot of new items in the game, including Parrots, Banners, Fireworks, Armor Stands, Coarse Dirt, and a lot more. One more thing to note here is that Sony PS4 users still don’t have cross-play support on Minecraft yet. Mojang says they are in talks with Sony about this, and cross-play support for PS4 should roll out soon.
Performance-wise, the new update tweaked the game a lot too. Many sound effects got changed, colors have been adjusted, etc. Aside from this, the new update fixes so many bugs that they are “too many to mention”.
“Too many to mention. My favourites are: making cats purr again, preventing bats from swimming underwater and stopping llamas from creepily turning their heads to stare at you while riding them.”
– Says Mojang in the update patch notes.
