What is Minecraft?
Minecraft is a sandbox video game using voxel graphics developed by Mojang Studios.
It is currently available on pretty much any gaming platform imaginable, and it has eventually become the best-selling game of all times, with its popularity still growing.
It was first created using the Java programming language, and it was officially released for the public in November 2011.
⛏️ What can you do in Minecraft?
There are plenty of things that you can do in Minecraft, but the main focus of the game is, as the name itself implies, mining and crafting.
Players start off in a randomly and procedurally generated world where they explore, gather resources, farm crops, raise animals, fight enemy NPCs, and more.
The end-goal of Minecraft is tied to that last part, as the player has to gather enough resources to equip himself to face off the Ender Dragon.
However, the story is non-linear, so the player can do pretty much whatever they please.
The game itself can be played in both singleplayer and multiplayer mode, with the latter being available in one of two ways:
❓ How can I improve my experience playing Minecraft?
There are two versions of Minecraft available, the Java Edition, and the Windows 10 Edition.

On the flip side, the Windows 10 Edition is optimized for the Windows 10 OS, and it runs like pretty much any other game, so a perfect balance of the following will provide the best gameplay:
Of course, these are all necessary only if you want to use shaders, or turn RTX on and transform Minecraft from a common voxel game into a visual wonder.
Lastly, those of you looking to play Minecraft in multiplayer, regardless of which edition they own, will need a stable Internet connection.
There are many VPNs that are great for Minecraft, so picking one should be easy based on what you need.
