Recently, 4J Studious showed us an image with two giant horse heads statuettes, where we saw the big graphic improvement of Minecraft in the next-generation consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The horse head statuettes were inspired from Andre Scott’s “The Kelpies”. 4J Studious confirmed that Minecraft: Xbox One’s render distance will be a bit higher than on the PC version.
They also showed us a few images, giving us an idea of what improvements the next-generation consoles will bring to this popular game. It’s obviously that both of the next-generation consoles are more superior to their predecessors, in terms of software and hardware capabilities and Minecraft will surely run smoother on both consoles.
One of the best improvements is the “greater draw distance”, which will help gamers to view the maps from a higher camera angle. Another great improvement is that the “world” on Minecraft: Xbox One and Minecraft: PlayStation 4 will be 36 times larger than it is currently on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This will give the players the opportunity to explore new terrains and surroundings.
4J Studios also confirmed that gamers who play on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will be able to save their worlds and import them to the next-generation consoles. However, the players will not be able to transfer the worlds from Xbox One or PlayStation 4 to their predecessors.
Minecraft for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will cost 19.99 dollars but if you already bought the game for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 you can upgrade your license to your next-generation console for only 4.99 dollars.
