Starting on the PC as an oddity, Minecraft has grown into a cultural phenomenon due to its retro, 8 bit style and potentially limitless gameplay, where you can explore the world around you or create your own unique and fantastic experiences. You have one simple goal in Minecraft: Build. But before you can build, you need to mine for resources. Almost everything can be mined from trees for wood, sheep for wool and rocks for stone and precious ores, once you have the materials the only limit is your imagination as you build houses, roads, star ships, castles or even iconic landmarks!
Minecraft on PC features two modes - Survival and Creative allowing you to worry about health and hunger or just build, build, build. The console versions feature a new crafting interface to make the jump from keyboard to controller a little easier, also you can grab a friend and mine together!
With Minecraft imminent on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One, the mining community is about to grow!
Play your way and order Minecraft today.
