What is Minecraft Realms?
Minecraft is an awesome game to begin with. However, it can get even better with the ability to have total control over the people who you play with and the world in which you play.
Can you imagine being able to play with all of your best friends in own private world where you don’t have to worry about people messing up your designs or the projects that you worked so hard to build?
Minecraft realms give you total and complete power over who you play the game with because you have to invite people to play on your private server.
What is really cool about this is that even when you go offline for a little while, any friends that you have given access to can still play in your world.
Minecraft realms servers are online twenty four hours a day seven days a week, so you never have to worry about a crash or an interruption when playing the game with friends.
Cost of Minecraft Realms:
One of the cool things about Minecraft realms is that only the user who opens the account has to pay in order to use it. All of the players that you invite get to play it for free!
It’s also fairly cheap, costing around 8$ per month for PC and MAC versions, and 4$ a month for the pocket version.
This is a pretty small price to pay for a game that you can play with all of your friends totally uninterrupted. Another cool feature is that the longer you subscribe for, the cheaper the rate becomes. Nice!
How to set one up:
First off, you must have a valid copy of Minecraft in order to use Minecraft realms. You must also remember that Minecraft realms will only work with the latest update. Therefore, you need to make sure you are running the most up-to-date software to be able to use your Minecraft realm.
You also have to remember to remove any and all mods on your Minecraft account because the realms will not work properly with the mods installed.
