Also, the new update released for Minecraft is filled with new life, and a will receive a more significant expansion named Village and Pillage.
What is Bedrock?
Bedrock Edition or Bedrock Version is a multi-platform family of editions of Minecraft. It’s developed by Mojang AB, Xbox Game Studios, 4J Studios, and SkyBox Labs. The game remains the same; you can build virtual realities in the sandbox environment. It also has survival elements such as brewing, hunger, Nether, and the End. The multiplayer mode is cross-platform compatible between all console devices capable of running the game. Moreover, Bedrock Edition differs from Java Edition by the more vibrant graphics, revised terrain, some exclusive items, and add-on system.
Finally, Minecraft is available to play with friends on Xbox Game Pass members, and you can enjoy it with $1 for a month. After that, the subscription cost $9.99.
