Update Aquatic Phase One is out now!
On Xbox One, Win 10, Mobile, Oculus and Mixed Reality devices!
Xbox One! Windows 10! Mobile! Gear VR, Oculus Rift & Mixed Reality Devices! Why am I yelling about these different Minecraft platforms? I can't remember!
Oh, wait, yes I can - It's because, as of today, Minecraft players on all of these platforms are getting Phase One of the Update Aquatic!
