Popular sandbox building and adventure game.

Overview

Minecraft allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat. Multiple gameplay modes are available, including survival modes where the player must acquire resources to build and maintain his or her health and hunger, a creative mode where players have unlimited resources to build and the ability to fly, and an adventure mode where players can create custom maps for other players to play.

What's new in Minecraft

Version 795 (1.16.5):

Note: Version number provided here is of the launcher, game version is displayed in parentheses

We're now releasing 1.16.5, which fixes two critical stability issues. We are not releasing more information about these issues at this time to protect servers that have not yet updated

This release is network compatible with 1.16.4 - this means you do not need to upgrade your game right away to play on an upgraded server. However, we highly encourage all server owners to update as soon as possible to apply the stability fixes

Next week, we aim to release the next snapshot of Caves & Cliffs. Stay tuned!

Nice game, but unfortunately the MacOS version (I've compared to the Windows 10 version and also the PS4 version) get noticable frame rate drops as soon as there's a certain amount of blocks in view. It's runs fine and smooth ”indoors” or in a place where one is not having that many block in view, but then at more open scenes the frame rate goes down making the game less enjoyable. I guess getting the Mac version onto the Metal API would help. Minecraft seem to run pretty well in iOS, but at the same time that version of the game doesn't offer very long render distance compared to the Mac (Java edition)version.

Does this require Java to be installed on a Mac? If so, I am not going to bother.

The listing is inaccurate. It will not run on 10.6.8. It requires 10.8.
