Minecraft Realms is Now Out Worldwide
"Minecraft" players on the PC and Mac can now gain access to the paid subscription service Minecraft Realms, as developer Mojang announced its availability worldwide.
Since "Minecraft" is looking at releases in various more platforms, the developer has also confirmed that it's working on the other platforms to ensure the release of the Minecraft Realms service beyond the PC and Mac.
Minecraft Realms is possibly the safest way to play the game online, since only invited payers can get on your Realms server, especially if you are hosting it. This would work best for parents with kids who love "Minecraft"- ensures that they play with their friends and not random strangers online.
"Whether you're building, adventuring, or competing in one of our featured mini-games, Realms servers are easy to set up and available 24/7," according to the official Minecraft Realms web site.
There's also the bonus that you can automatically back up your worlds at regular intervals and have the host restore a Realm to any saved state. You can also invite up to 10 players at any time, with 20 players allowed for invite onto the Realms server.
Minecraft Realms is available for only $13 per month, but Mojang is also offering the service in 1, 3 or 6-month packages, with the longer subscriptions getting a bigger discount.
