This news shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone because Minecraft’s player count and popularity is on the rise since the day it was released. It is probably the only game available in the market that is suitable for all kind of ages and genders.

The game urges you to be creative by creating new buildings, cities or even a whole country. Due to this reason, Minecraft is now being taught in Sweden as a compulsory subject, as it  shapes up the new generation for the better.

Minecraft offers four different modes named as the Survival, Creative, Adventure and Multiplayer with each of them offering a different kind of challenge for the players.

Now with 15 Million sales on PC, the total tally of Minecraft series has crossed over 37 Million across all platforms. The game was first released as a beta in 2010 and slowly the developers worked hard to bring the full game to PC on 18th of November in 2011 followed by Xbox 360 release in 2012 and PS3 version in 2013.

The game is currently under development for PlayStation 4, PS Vita and Xbox One which is scheduled to release some time later this year.
