We all have had our fun in Minecraft either playing in large public servers or in private worlds, but Mojang is coming up with a fusion of the two.
Minecraft Realms is a subscription based service that allows you to create private servers from the Minecraft game directly. Rather than going through a third party service, Mojang is allowing you to branch off into a dedicated server for a small group of friends and players.
Why it’s awesome
While playing on the PC, it is sometimes difficult to only play with your friends without getting into a large public server; but with Realms you can create and manage a private family server straight from the game for you and your friends. According to Mojang, this will make managing a server streamlined and much easier for the average person who might not be extremely tech-savvy.
This service is currently in beta and will be released in most countries later this year. For information on pricing for subscriptions please go here.
