If you're starting to lose track of the numerous versions of Minecraft, you're not the only one. Just before Christmas, Mojang released the popular sandbox game onto yet another platform with Minecraft: Apple TV Edition. What does the launch of an Apple TV game mean for Xbox gamers? Normally, nothing. However, like the iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Gear VR and Windows 10 editions, this one is confirmed to be receiving Xbox Live support, meaning a new list of achievements.
While the Xbox Live support hasn't gone live yet, Mojang says they'll be adding it “in the near future.” This latest edition will also soon be receiving the Realms update, which added subscription-based, always-on worlds. Despite not having all the latest features just yet, the Apple TV Edition is still fairly current, launching with this month's Ender update, which also recently went out to the various Pocket editions of Minecraft. For those who happen to own an Apple TV, it's currently going for US$19.99and offering the Holiday 2015, Town Folk, and City Folk skin packs as well as the Plastic, Natural, Cartoon, and Festive 2016 DLC mash-ups free with purchase for a limited time.
