Minecraft will get a 4K graphics pack this fall, plus complete cross-platform play

Minecraft is getting an update this fall, which will include a 4K graphics upgrade and cross-platform play. Complete cross-platform play, in fact: players on any console, mobile device, or PC will be able to play Mojang's famous sandbox game together. There's a trailer above to check out how the blocks look in 4K (they still look like blocks, but very pretty ones).

Other features that will come a little later include a community marketplace, where players will be able to buy and sell items they've created.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
