It was announced during Apple’s event in October this year that Minecraft will soon be making its way to the Apple TV. Microsoft-owned Mojang has announced today that Minecraft for Apple TV has now been released. The game has been launched for the fourth-generation Apple TV. The company says that Minecraft for Apple TV is “rolling out in all regions” throughout the entire day.
For a limited time, Minecraft for Apple TV comes with seven pieces of DLC which include Holiday 2015, City Folk, and Town Folk skin packs as well as other add-ons. Natural, Cartoon, Plastic and Festive 2016 mash-ups are also included. The Apple TV Edition of Minecraft includes the Ender Update as well which was just launched for the game.
As far as the game itself is concerned, it’s more or less similar to Minecraft on any other platform, so existing players will feel right at home when they’re playing this popular game on their Apple set-top box.
Mojang does point out that Minecraft for Apple TV doesn’t have support for Minecraft Realms or Xbox Live at this point in time but it does promise that the game is going to be updated with these features in the near future.
Minecraft for Apple TV costs $19.99 and is now available for download on the set-top box.
