Minecraft Pocket Edition: Beta Update Available to Download with New Improvements

There’s no wonder why Minecraft is a massively played game, with about 250 million users. The game managed to become so popular without featuring impressive graphics like most successful games nowadays. Minecraft involves a lot of strategies, and it greatly stimulates both ambition and creativity.

But when you’re not willing to play Minecraft on your PC or laptop, you can always go for the Pocket Edition. The Nether update just arrived for the game, bringing dozens of new elements.

Available only in beta

The update makes your Minecraft gaming experience for the Pocket Edition a lot more exciting: there cometh new blocks, new materials, and new mobs. A new civilization named Piglins is also included in the update, and it lives in the Nether and in the Crimson Forest (another new addition, by the way).

Minecraft’s official presentation from Google Play says:

“Explore infinite worlds and build everything from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. Play in creative mode with unlimited resources or mine deep into the world in survival mode, crafting weapons and armor to fend off dangerous mobs. Create, explore and survive alone or with friends on mobile devices or Windows 10.”

Furthermore, if you’re tired of playing alone, there’s always the multiplayer mode of Minecraft waiting for you. You can compete with up to 10 friends cross-platform. The playground is on Realms, which is your own private server that the developers are hosting for you. You can even try a free 30-day trial in-app.

If, by some reason, you don’t like the Pocket Edition of Minecraft, you should remember that the PC version is always available and ready to delight your gaming needs. Minecraft is the best selling game of all time, having over 180 million copies sold by late 2019, and around 112 million monthly active players.
