Minecraft 4K Trailer Shows the Game’s New Visuals on Xbox One X (VIDEO)
Microsoft has officially unveiled what was previously known as Project Scorpio, the follow up console to the Xbox One that would be 4K enabled, and has now officially become titled the Xbox One X. Today’s conference showed off the cutting edge new games that will be making the most out of the new 4K capabilities. One such game that was shown off today that may surprise people given its simplistic character and world models is Minecraft 4K, which updates the massively popular title with upgraded visuals and interesting new features.
Microsoft debuted the trailer for Minecraft 4K at their E3 press conference today, as well as on their official YouTube channel. Minecraft usually has had some kind of presence considering their costly acquisition by Microsoft a few years ago, but few had expected a 4K Minecraft to show off the new powerful console. Nonetheless, the new lighting effects for Minecraft do look quite stunning, and the colorful landscapes perhaps lend themselves better to displaying HD more so than the darker big titles on Xbox’s platforms. Plus, the added processing power of the One X will make the larger Minecraft servers perform better, as seen in the trailer with numerous squadmates playing simultaneously.
Another interesting new feature confirmed with this trailer is crossplay functionality. So now, Xbox One X players will be able to play Minecraft online with their friends on other consoles, including Xbox One and One S, iOS, Nintendo Switch and more. The trailer states that Minecraft 4K will arrive some time this fall.
