You can explore Minecrafts 10-year history in a massive new interactive in-game museum
Minecraft is ten years old this year, and Microsoft is going big on the birthday celebrations - as is only right for one of gaming's most enduring titles. As part of those festivities, it's released a wonderful new map, featuring a huge interactive museum themed around the game's first decade.
To explore the free anniversary map, you'll first need to fire up Minecraft on any platform that supports the Bedrock version of the game (which is to say Xbox One, Windows 10, iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch), then download it from the in-game store. There's also a version for Minecraft's original Java edition, which you can grab via the web.
And it's well worth taking the time to investigate the enormous freebie, which has been designed by Blockworks, a studio that specialises in elaborate Minecraft builds. It's an absolutely lovely thing, sitting somewhere between digital museum and theme park, and begins with a minecart-powered dark ride that whizzes passengers through numerous dioramas illustrating Minecraft's major milestones over the last ten years.
