Minecraft Pocket Edition arrives to iOS users tomorrow

Minecraft Pocket Edition will make it to iOS tomorrow, get ready to dig

| Gaming News | Posted: Nov 18, 2011 11:27 am

Minecraft has enjoyed 4 million sales on PC, but it will be on iOS and more specifically, the iTunes Store in a matter of hours. The game is called Minecraft Pocket Edition and is virtually the same game that was released to the Sony Xperia Play and Android Market earlier this year.

The game will work on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, costing $9.99. The PC version includes multiple modes, alternate dimensions, craftable items, non-player characters, and a pretty good multiplayer side, where the Pocket Edition is pretty bland. You can explore the randomly-generated world, build with unlimited supplies of 36 kinds of blocks, as well as multiplayer over a local network.

 

Minecraft Pocket Edition should receive the same thing the PC version receives, constant updates with new features always being added. Time will tell what we get exactly, but this should be exciting news for iOS-based Minecraft fans.
