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.
