Last year at E3, Microsoft revealed an exciting new version of Minecraft running on te new ‘Bedrock’ engine. This new version came about via the ‘Better Together’ update. It adds new features such as infinite worlds and cross-platform multiplayer between Switch, Xbox One, Windows 10 and mobile Minecraft players.
The update launched late last year on all of the aforementioned platforms except the Switch. The reason for this was given by Minecraft developer Mojang, who stated that they wanted to bring it to the Switch only after it was in tip-top shape. It’s been a few months, and now it looks like the BT update for the Switch is set to be released soon.
Popular YouTube channel ‘ibxtoycat’ recently released a video showcasing live gameplay footage of the new Bedrock-enhanced version of Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition. The footage was captured from an official Minecraft live stream. This new version not only adds all the new ‘Better Together’ features but has also improved the game’s performance. There are various graphics settings that can now be adjusted (such as the framerate), and the rendering size of the world has also been increased (undocked mode currently renders 6 chunks, but the new update allows for 14 chunks).
