We exclusively reported that Microsoft is bringing Minecraft’s Windows 10 edition to the Xbox One for the new Xbox One X. At E3, Microsoft officially announced that it’s bringing Minecraft to the Xbox One X as a native 4K title. The game will include all the features from the Windows 10 edition, but it will be a 4K title which means it should look much better than the old Xbox One game.
Now it appears the title is edging toward release, according to a tweet by Aubrey Norris, a developer of the game, who hinted at an upcoming beta.
It is believed Microsoft will be testing the powerful Bedrock rendering engine with Xbox Insiders which allows cross-play with Minecraft Players on other devices and access to always online worlds via Minecraft Realms.
To qualify to take part you need to be an Xbox Insider and own a digital copy of the current Minecraft: Xbox Edition. Hopefully, when the title is released you will make the cut and be invited to try it out.
You may wonder why one would play Minecraft in 4K, right? Well, Microsoft is introducing a new Super Duper Graphics Pack for Minecraft that will completely change how Minecraft looks and that should make Minecraft look gorgeous on the Xbox One S in native 4K.
The new Minecraft will also be available to the older Xbox One consoles, including the original Xbox One and Xbox One S. The game comes out this fall on the Xbox One.
