Minecraft has obviously been one of the biggest video game success stories of all time. What began as a buggy, few-featured alpha has grown and expanded into one of the best selling games ever. A part of this success is how small the game is, allowing it to be released on pretty much anything with a screen. Today sees the release of Minecraft onto yet another platform, with the launch of Minecraft: Apple TV Edition.
This new version seems to be based on Minecraft’s mobile and Windows 10 editions, which have lagged behind in terms of features, but are swiftly catching up and becoming the more supported versions of the game. The game costs $19.99 and comes with many of the previously released DLC for the game. In terms of what version it is up to, it will be current with the recently released Ender Update, which just hit mobile and Windows 10. For more details on that, click here.
Here’s the full details from Mojang: “Do you own one of those fancy Apple TV devices? Maybe Santa has his elves cooking one up in their high-tech workshop? If either of those are true, I bring good news! We’ve just released Minecraft for the slim black boxes. And, for a limited time, it comes with seven pieces of lovely DLC, giving you the chance to customise the fun to your liking. Minecraft: Apple TV Edition currently includes the Holiday 2015, Town Folk, and City Folk skin packs, along with the Plastic, Natural, Cartoon, and Festive 2016 mash-ups. It costs $19.99 and is rolling out in all regions as I type.”
Apple TV hasn’t quite made a name for itself in video games just yet, but it is doing so more and more each day. The addition of Minecraft should definitely help, adding one of the most popular games of all time to a platform tends to do that.
