Minecraft’s multiplayer mode is one of the game’s most well-known features. While exploring Mojang’s idea of dynamically generating infinite open worlds alone is fun and riveting in its own way, nothing can beat the thrill and sense of adventure that follows when a group of friends travel through the vast fields, caves, and mountains of the game.
Minecraft’s multiplayer mode, even with regard to ‘Realm,’ severely restricts the number of players that can join a particular world. Creating a server however, drastically increases the number and thus, the level of creation, immersion, and fun that can be had.
