Unless you are living under the rock, you should at least know that Minecraft is one of the leading video games of this era. Just in case you really don’t know anything about it, Minecraft is a game where players are in a virtual world where everything is made with cubes of different materials. This is considered a unique game that seems to have taken its inspiration from pixel art. It involves exploring the world and seeing where your resources can take you.

Some do not consider Minecraft as a game, but more of an experience of playing in a virtual world. If you are not one of the more than 30 million gamers (and counting) who find this game very exciting, here are some ideas to make it more interesting.

Try Different Modes.

Many players stick to the creative mode, where it gives them the opportunity to access all of the resources to the game and build your own world. Should also try other modes such as the Survival mode - which could be the most exciting one. Players have a limited life bar where they have to find specific resources while avoiding (and fighting) the game’s monsters like zombies and ‘creepers’. In terms of exploring, you may also choose Adventure Mode. This will give you an opportunity to experience the adventure from other players (Beware: some of them are dangerous maps).

Get into Virtual Reality.

When played with a screen, Minecraft is a first-person game. You will not be able to see your looks while in the game most of the time, having the feeling that whatever is on the screen is what your character sees in its virtual world. An option to play it on VR mode makes it a more immersive experience. The game’s website is full of information about the compatible devices (depending on your game console) and how they can be integrated with the game.

Minecraft Server Hosting

This game can be more exciting by being on multiplayer mode with other gamers. To take it to the next level by having Minecraft Server Hosting – by having a private network that any player can create for a multiplayer experience, allowing other players to join and play alongside them. This is like your own space and gives the control over who you can invite on your server. This is a paid service offered by different hosting companies, which some can provide the best gameplay possible. It can also give you the opportunity to make your own server (which is always available) and run the version you would like.

Download Mods.

Since Minecraft is more of an adventure game, mods (modifications) can give a twist to its vanilla version. These changes can open different gameplay, environment, and even specific modes apart from what the original game offers. To have an idea, mods can turn your game inspired by Jurassic Park, explore aerial vehicles (like helicopters and airplanes), and even travel back in time like being on a medieval colony. As of writing, there are Minecraft enthusiasts that still upload mods on the internet.
