A number of Minecraft announcements were made yesterday. Among these are plans for cross-play, allowing users across different platforms to play together online, such as Switch and Xbox One.

The Super Duper Graphics Pack was also revealed. This features dynamic shadows, lighting that streams through fog, movement in leaves and grass, new textures for mobs and villagers, directional lighting, edge highlighting and more. While it was thought that it would only be on Xbox One and Windows 10, it’ll actually be on Switch as well, Kotaku reports.

Cameron Egbert, the rendering lead on Minecraft, told Kotaku, “It will be anywhere that you can play Minecraft in the new version.” Egbert added, “It will improve any screen on which you play”.
