I’m been very anxiously waiting for Minecraft‘s ($6.99) Better Together update to hit iOS (Android players have been beta testing the update for weeks now), but it looks like I’ll have to wait a bit longer. The update was originally scheduled to go live this summer, but recently the FAQ was updated, and now Better Together is scheduled to launch this Autumn, “once it’s ready and we’ve satisfactorily evicted bugs from the premises." While I’m glad to hear the developers are taking their time with this update and not trying to rush it out the door, it’s still a bit disappointing to have to wait until the fall (although that could mean next month).
If you haven’t been keeping up with Minecraft news, the Better Together update is one of the biggest in the history of the game since it’s going to finally bring cross-platform gaming between iOS, Android, Windows 10, and Xbox players, something that not many thought would be possible. The update will also improve the game’s visuals (while retaining the same overall art direction) and introduce massive community servers. And that’s not all; we are also getting ravines, stained glass, better crafting UI, banners, fireworks, parrots, and much more. So, just a little bit more patience, I suppose.
