Realms and cross-device play: now on Pocket / Win 10
Somewhere out there, on a hot stage in LA, Lydia has just announced the release of The Friendly Update, aka 0.15, for Pocket and Windows 10 Edition. And not just that! We can now reveal that The Friendly Updates hitherto mysteriously unspecified friendliness is a result of two major features: Realms and cross-device multiplayer!
Realms are servers, run by us, just for you and your friends. Now, you can keep your Pocket / Win 10 Edition Minecraft world online and always accessible, even when you log-off. Its safe, too! Only people you invite can join your world, and what you do there is up to you: create, survive or compete.
Not convinced? Then try out the month-long free trial! Read all about how to get your hands on Realms on our shiny new site.
Now you can play Pocket / Win 10 edition with your friends whatever device they are running it on, be it a shiny Android phablet, the latest flavour of iDevice or a beefy Windows 10 monster-rig. You can even join each others worlds while strapped into a Gear VR. All this friendliness is powered by Xbox Live - its free to sign up, so dont be scared.
This isnt the only thing were showing off at E3. Were also excited to give you a sneak peak at Add-ons. These will allow players to transform the look of their world and even change the behavior of mobs by editing a simple script. The results can be pretty dramatic and elaborate, like the Alien Invasion add-on Lydia showed off on stage moments ago. If youre too late to jump on the live feed, therell almost certainly be a video of the entire Microsoft conference uploaded shortly after it concludes, and walkthroughs of the new features on the Xbox Twitch channel later in the week.
Anyway, we hope you enjoy the latest goodies weve squeezed into the 0.15 update - pistons, pig-riding and all. Stay friendly, everyone!
