Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition: Co-Operative Play Detailed
About four people are required to play the co-op on HD TV for it to work properly. There is no support for system link or LAN, reported Co-Optimus.
The game can take eight players at a time in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition online. Players have options to restrict others from joining their games. The combo co-op will include four local players and four online players.
How to start co-op session?
Players can either join directly or must be invited by the host to join a particular game. Those who wish to play the split-screen have to be signed into Guest, Silver or Gold accounts, before they enter the World.
The game will be automatically saved, but hosts can disable this feature and change the settings. The host can also disable the friendly-fire feature in the game.
Since there is no ultimate goal in the game, it is up to players to decide what they want to do; they can either built an imposing structure, a home, or go the end by slaying the Ender Dragon.
