Realms is packed with awesome maps

Minecraft Realms is getting even more exciting! We’ve packed it to the brim with fresh mini-games, maps to spark an epic adventure, and intricate custom spawns.

Realms gives you and your friends a persistent Minecraft world. It doesn’t matter if the host is online or what time of day it is; Realms worlds are always available for building, adventuring, and crafting. You can start from a random seed, or choose one of our pre-installed maps. You can even switch between the two and save/restore your progress when convenient.

We thought it would be good to give you a rundown of the pre-made maps currently included in Realms. Thanks to all the fantastic community members for creating these masterpieces. You are all talented and generous and lovely.

Learn more about Realms by visiting our website or checking out the subreddit.

Bloxorz by JesperTheEnd

Bloxorz is an homage to popular Flash game… erm… Bloxorz. It’s a puzzler that rewards forward planning and good brainwork. Check out some cool footage of the game in the video above but bear in mind that the level editor is not available in the Realms version. That said, all 33 levels from the original are, so don’t stress too much.

Color Cube by Musclecraft (MaxSizeIs)

Color cube is a tactical minigame that’s all about claiming territory. Players paint the level their own color by running around one of nine available maps, and doing their best not to fall off the ever-changing landscape. There are even powerups to help spice up the gameplay. Play it with a bunch of friends for maximum fun.

Diamond Defender by Xisuma & Eease

Diamond Defender is another innovative minigame. This one tasks players with surviving a terrifying ten waves of creeper attacks while protecting your stash of precious diamonds. Not one for the faint of heart but a bundle of creeper-based mayhem.

Diversity 2 by QMagnet

Diversity 2 is a Complete the Monument-style minigame. That means that players need to find or earn specific blocks to “complete” the map. The extra cool thing about Diversity 2 is that those blocks are earned through completing a bunch of challenges in specific zones. You should definitely check this one out; Marc Watson – the adorable and much-loved guy from Minecraft support – lists this as one of his favourite maps of all time!

Knockback Madness by AKAMC

Knockback Madness is a chaotic mixture of player versus player combat and vertigo-inducing parkour. Players use their Minecraft combat skills to take out the other players using deadly weapons while avoiding their enemies’ advances. Competitive stuff for fans of intense combat!

Missile Wars by SethBling & Cubehamster

Missile Wars is a conveniently descriptive title for this cracking minigame from Seth Bling. Players launch TNT and Slime Block missiles at each other’s bases while trying to defend their own by defusing opponents’ missiles with skilled marksmanship. You can even ride your own warhead across the map! Awesome stuff.

Pizzaspleef by SethBling

Pizzaspleef is Seth Bling’s innovative take on the classic Minecraft mini-game, Spleef. The objective is to be the last players standing on a giant pizza. Players earn bonuses such as super speed or jump boosts by mining each of the toppings . It’s a deliciously chaotic quest for glory!

Raider’s Refuge by Blockworks
Raider's Refuge (1)

Raiders Refuge is an exciting survivial map in Realms. Start your game here and you’ll spawn in a majestic settlement sitting on a rugged coastline. It’s perfect for playing out pirate fantasies before venturing into the unknown.

Spellbound Caves by Vechs

Spellbound Caves is a Capture the Monument map by Vechs – one of the pioneers of the genre. It’s one part of his Super Hostile series which is notorious for it’s challenging nature. I’m sure you’ve got the skills required though – you look like a hardy crafter.

Winter Stronghold by Blockworks
Winter Stronghold (1)

Winter Stronghold is our second survival map. Instead of beginning your adventure in a random spawn, players start in this prebuild stronghold complete with all its wintery charm. Gather supplies, plan your journey, then head into the wild.

That’s it for now! Hope you enjoyed this rundown. Visit our Realms site for more.

Have a great weekend everyone,

To get pre-releases, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “pre-releases” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).

Hi everybody!

We have some great news to share! Minecraft for PSVita is coming tomorrow and we hope you’ll enjoy it. It has been a lot of work with 4J and Sony to make this happen and we’re thrilled to see what you guys will build on the go!

Remember that if you have already bought Minecraft for PS3 you’ll get the Vita version for free! You can also transfer worlds between the PS3 and PSVita! And if you want to buy the PS4 version after that, it will only cost you 4,99 smackeroonies! Here is also a longer article from Sony about the various purchase options:
