E3 2017: Minecraft 4K Super Duper Graphics Pack

Minecraft’s look was iconic in the day but over time has moved past that to dated, so Microsoft is giving its $2.5 billion acquisition a makeover this fall.  The coming update is basically a texture refresh with lighting shaders, and there’s no question it makes the game look much prettier.  This will be the second major update currently on schedule, with the first being the Better Together enhancement that unifies servers across mobile, PC, VR, and console.  Minecraft is a continually evolving package that’s still far more popular than it seems, and these updates give it fresh legs with an audience that always has new kids joining to replace the ones who age out.
