Cross-Platform Minecraft Multiplayer Coming Soon + 4K Graphics (UPDATE)

During the Xbox E3 press conference, Microsoft announced that this summer Minecraft will be united across all servers on mobile, VR, PC, and console, and updating the visuals in 4K. This means everyone will be able to share and play with everyone on nearly every platform. Later in the fall, the game will get a visual overhaul with the Super Duper Graphics pack. Microsoft showed off the new visuals showcasing impressive new lighting effects among other updates. You check out the 4K graphics in the trailer below. 

UPDATE 8/19/2019 -

Mojang announced that the Super Duper Graphics pack has been canceled, stating that the performance hit was a bit too much for every platform.
"We realize this is disappointing to some of you – there was a lot of enthusiasm for Super Duper from inside and outside the studio – but unfortunately, we aren’t happy with how the pack performed across devices," the developers wrote in a blog post. "For this reason, we're stopping development on the pack, and looking into other ways for you to experience Minecraft with a new look."
