Feature: The Battle Royale of Battle Royales

Games like Fortnite – 8 best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale is, so far, the pinnacle of the decade-old battle royale game genre. It's no understatement to say that we haven't seen a game enter the mainstream in this way since Minecraft - but it's not the only battle royale out there, and the genre has never before seen such quantity nor such quality. We'll go over a handful of our favourite battle…

Minecraft skins list – 64 best Minecraft skins of the past 10 years (plus download links)

Minecraft skins have grown into quite the medium for artistic expression over the past 10 years. There's something very enticing about the challenge of trying to create a recognisable face in only 64 pixels - and it's pretty incredible to see some of the things that various Minecraft communities have created. Below we've collated 64 of the best Minecraft skins we've seen, with links to…

Feature: You can probably learn a lot about me from these seed names

Minecraft seeds 1.14 – the best Minecraft 1.14 seeds we’ve discovered (plus Amidst screenshots)

Minecraft seeds, by default, are just long strings of numbers to use as a basis for the enormous procedural worlds that Mojang's janky masterpiece can create. But that's such a missed opportunity, don't you think? Why leave the game to give you some meaningless string of integers, when you could instead seed your world with something like "WeAreTheKnightsWhoSayNi", or "I love you 3000", or some…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Minecraft: Story Mode downloads might vanish on June 25th

Adding one final indignity to the catastrophic fall of Telltale Games, it appears that their kid-friendly (and admittedly rather naff) Minecraft: Story Mode adventure series may be more than just delisted from stores soon. A blog post on the official Minecraft site warns that even players that own Minecraft: Story Mode, seasons one or two, may not be available to download it after June 25th.…

Visit Minecraft’s theme park map to celebrate its 10th birthday

As part of Minecraft's tenth birthday celebrations, Mojang have commissioned a virtual theme park celebrating the build 'em up. It's available as a free map for all players. Exhibitions include a sculpture garden of monsters in a glasshouse, demonstrations of redstone-powered doohickeys, museums, galleries, Easter eggs... it seems real fancy. A season of festivities for a mere tenth anniversary might seem churlish but hell, Minecraft…

Minecraft Classic is a free browser-based piece of history

As part of Minecraft's tenth anniversary celebrations, Mojang have dusted off an early 2009 iteration, packaged it up into free, browser-friendly format and called it Minecraft Classic. This nearly-decade-old build is an interesting museum piece, not quite a game yet, but it was still unmistakably Minecraft at this point. Players are free to generate and explore procedurally generated worlds and build with a palette of…

Minecraft’s original developer isn’t invited to its 10th anniversary bash

It's been a big year for Minecraft, that monolithic devourer of children's free time, and Microsoft are gearing up to celebrate its tenth anniversary. They just won't be sending any invitations to original lead developer Markus "Notch" Persson, whose "comments and opinions" online have gotten him kicked off the mega-corporation's christmas card list, according to Variety. This comes shortly after the game's current developers removed…

Licensed to illage: Minecraft launches Village & Pillage update

The world of Minecraft has become a little more alive this week with the launch of the Village & Pillage update. It gives villagers new jobs, creates new styles of village, whacks in a Bamboo Jungle biome, unleashes pandas, arms us with a crossbow, and adds a pillager faction with their own bases who'll raid villages unless we fend them off. Some parts of all…

Lusting for ruin on Minecraft’s most apocalyptic server

It has become increasingly difficult to play games that aren’t about the end of the world. The apocalypse and its chaotic aftermath has grown into a collective obsession. We seem to have a cultural fascination, desire, perhaps even lust, to see things burn, violently breaking with the past. Even games that weren’t originally about living in the end times, like Minecraft, have been twisted into…

Minecraft overhauling NPC villages, adding pandas

Along with announcing dungeon-crawling spin-off Minecraft: Dungeons, over the weekend Mojang laid out their plans for future additions to plain ol' Minecraft. The next major update is named 'Village & Pillage', and it'll make NPC villages more unique and interesting with new styles and daily routines, along with new enemies to pillage them. Also in the pipeline: pandas, cats, a crossbow, and an overhaul of…

Minecraft: Dungeons will dungeon-crawl through the blockworld

A new Minecraft spin-off game will delve into the blockworld as a dungeon-crawler in 2019, developers Mojang announced this weekend during their MineCon fan event. Minecraft: Dungeons is its name, and whacking monsters is its game. Inspired by "classic dungeon crawler games", they say, it'll send up to four players to whack and stab and thwipp and zap through Minecrafty levels and monsters, grabbing whatever…

Minecraft’s Update Aquatic splashes onto Java clients

Fish! Turtles! Dolphins! Tridents! All these and more washed ashore in Minecraft's Update Aquatic last week, but only for the Windows 10 version. Those salty friends have now appeared on the Java client, along with underwater ruins, shipwrecks and a special block that makes everything near it behave as if it was on dry land. I went for an underwater wander this morning. The developers…

Minecraft’s Update Aquatic brings friendly dolphins and fetching reefs

I do like to be beside the seaside, but there's a lot to be said for diving into it and building oversized penis monuments. Fortunately the second and final part of Minecraft's "Update Aquatic" came out yesterday, and lets people with the Windows 10 version do exactly that. For players still on the Java version, work-in-progress snapshots have been available for a while but the…

Mojang’s Scrolls returns as Caller’s Bane, completely free

A multiplayer game shutting down is always a sad thing. No matter how small the community behind it, there was a community, and undoubtedly someone is going to lose their favourite game or - worse still - their favourite buddy online. As such, it brings a smile to my face to see that Mojang's ill-fated CCG/Hex-based strategy hybrid Scrolls has officially relaunched, albeit under a different name.…

The Boys are Blocky Now: FFXV skin pack for Minecraft

Minecraft is a strange phenomenon in gaming. Like a towering skyscraper, the mind stops recognizing it as a place for humans to inhabit, and it just becomes part of the landscape. Every now and then, something recognizable pokes out of a window and you're forced to re-assess your outlook on the world. In this case, it's the boys, girls and monsters of Final Fantasy XV,…

Minecraft gets better down where it’s wetter

After years of fannying about with such frivolities as 'mining' and 'crafting', Minecraft is now focusing on what's truly important: swimming outdoors. Version 1.13 of Minecraft's Java Edition, nicknamed Update Aquatic, is still swimming through development but the latest work-in-progress 'snapshot' build launched yesterday and is full of goodies. Dolphins! Icebergs! 'Conduit' blocks that keep you from drowning! Different water colours for different biomes! Why…

Mojang’s card game Scrolls shuts down next week

Scrolls, the battling card game from Minecraft studio Mojang, will finally shut down next week, on Tuesday the 13th of February. The official servers will shut down and the game become unplayable, though Mojang are hoping--not promising--that they will soon be able to release server software publicly so people can run their own. We've known for ages that Scrolls would shut down one day, since…

Have You Played… Cobalt?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Cobalt had two ideas that make it one of the best arena shooters I’ve played: automatic time slowing, and a roll button that deflects bullets. There’s a single player/co-op campaign, though when I played that was only there in bare-bones form. Not that it mattered, because…

Minecraft Java testing official texture makeover

A minor makeover is coming up the good ol' original Java version of Minecraft, keeping those same blocky looks but remaking textures. Touching up everything from blocks to items and enemies, the new textures look like Minecraft but a little nicer. If you fancy seeing for yourself, hey, you can download and test this today. This is all unrelated to--and quite different from--the 4K HDR…
