What is Minecraft?

Today Minecraft is one of the most popular video games in the world. In the game, players can create and break apart various kinds of blocks in three-dimensional worlds. And they can do it all with their friends! What’s so captivating about Minecraft - beyond that you can choose to play alone or with pals - is that it mixes elements of survival, building, crafting, exploration, and combat. With just your imagination you can transform the world around you, creating cool structures in the block-based creative mode, similar to how you build with LEGOs offline. Plus, things are always changing as you can find and develop plenty of different biomes, where you’ll spot everything from piles of diamonds to shipwrecks with treasure.
