‘Minecraft’ makes the leap to 4K this fall
Minecraft isn’t just getting unified online play this year — it’s also receiving a huge image quality boost. Microsoft and Mojang have unveiled a Super Duper Graphics Pack (no really, that’s the name) that will give the building game a major visual upgrade, including 4K resolution, high dynamic range, sharper textures and loads of special effects (including light rays and fancier water). Logically, you’ll need an Xbox One X or a beefy Windows 10 PC to get the 4K HDR experience. The add-on is free when it arrives this fall, and the developers are quick to stress that it’s strictly optional — you can stick to the regular graphics if the Super Duper pack feels blasphemous to you.
