What started out as a fairly basic sandbox creation game, nobody could have imagined the heights that Minecraft would eventually reach. From its indie beginnings with a small studio called Mojang, Minecraft is now owned by tech giant Microsoft and is available on almost every game platform that is available on the market. It has become one of the most successful video games of all time.

The concept of Minecraft is incredibly simple. The entire world is made up of blocks. Grass, dirt, stone, wood and a huge amount of other blocks that all represent a material that is available to us in real life. Players can destroy or build these blocks in order to create a world that is entirely their own.

The construction elements are only one part. The darkness is filled with enemies, enemies that want to kill you. There are two other realms, one of which shares a striking resemblance to hell. With your sword, shield and various other tools and potions, you can take on these enemies and face the ender dragon or the Wither, two of the games main bosses.

The obsession over Minecraft is evident with the sheer number of videos that are published to youtube. Gamers constantly trying to outdo each other with bigger and better constructions. Entire fantasy cities have been recreated in Minecraft. Combined with the massive modding community that aims to make Minecraft look as real as possible, sometimes it feels like you can explore anywhere you can imagine in this game.

is minecraft going to be released on the playstation 5 when the console launches at the end of the year. Will there be a official release for the console to take advantage of the increased power?

If I start a new level on the PS4 version of the game and I build a bunch of structures and spend some time mining for diamonds, can I then copy that world and play it on iOS or Switch when I am on the go?

Will seeds that people discover using any of the console versions of Minecraft work with the pocket edition on mobile devices?

When is the bedrock edition of minecraft being released on the Playstation 4? There are lots of great seeds for it that don't work for PS4

Does the Playstation 4 edition of Minecraft support the mods that people are using on the Pc version of the game?

I have spent a lot of time playing on different worlds. I always spend a lot of time in the forests since there is a lot of wood and they are less hostile. I have seen videos of people finding these big woodland mansions that usually have lots of great resourses inside of them. I spend a lot of time in the woodland areas and I can't seem to find any of these mansions. What am i doing wrong?

It often seems like there are some special seeds that are added by the developer. You can tell by the weird names/numbers that often have a double meaning. If they go to the effort of doing this, why do updates constantly break these seeds and force everyone to have to find new seeds if they want to use all the features in the new update. Seems so pointless and ruins a lot of the fun when there are older seeds that have been well explored and mapped out by others. 

Is there anything that can be done to stop Creepers from exploding after the fuse sound has been made to signal that he is about to explode? I know killing the creeper will prevent the explosion, but are there any other ways to prevent the explosion without killing it?
