Minecraft is coming to Xbox Game Pass on April 4, Microsoft has announced. Revealed during the March 12 edition of Inside Xbox, the block building (and much, much more) game will headline Game Pass' lineup next month.
If you have somehow managed to miss the Minecraft hype over the last 10 years, you might be one of the few to do so. Since its release in 2009, Minecraft has amassed a staggering 91 million players across 20 platforms. On Xbox One players can choose to create or survive, going alone or teaming up with friends. Minecraft also includes a marketplace that is home to over 1000 pieces of content.
While new content can be bought, including skins for your character, Minecraft receives free updates, too. In the past, these have included the Update Aquatic, which added new animals and items to the game's oceans. The Village and Pillage update is due later this spring.
If you're yet to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass you can start your membership for just $1 for the first month. After that, the price rises to $9.99 each month or $59.99 for a six-month membership. Minecraft on Xbox One supports cross-play with Nintendo Switch players, but not with anyone playing on PS4. If you're playing Minecraft on PC, there are plenty of excellent Minecraft Mods to check out.
