A large part of Minecraft’s success, aside from the fact it is fun, is that the game is available on basically every platform. Almost. Now the game can add one more platform to the list.
Minecraft is now available on Apple TV.
What you are getting is basically the same Minecraft experience you know already, but just be aware that there are a few things missing. Like the multiplayer Minecraft Realms and Xbox Live support, for instance. However, the developers say that those features will be added in the “near future.” They just aren’t here now.
It will cost you $19.99 for the game and seven DLC packs: the Holiday 2015, Town Folk and City Folk skin packs as well as the Plastic, Natural, Cartoon, and Festive 2016 “mash-ups.”
You may remember that Minecraft was announced for Apple TV by Tim Cook at Apple’s October MacBook Pro event, but at the time we didn’t have any details about how the game would play. Now it seems that it will be fairly up-to-date, aside from what we mentioned. The Apple TV edition will include the “Ender update,” which adds many new single-player experiences. You can get the app on Apple TV now if you want to try it and give it a go.
