Principle of the game
In Minecraft, you decide how the world structures itself, what elements go to where, and you invite your friends to play together. You can also participate in survival mode, which requires you to accumulate resources during the day to protect yourself from zombies after dark. Everything is done by creating and destroying blocks.
The game has become a phenomenon thanks to its simple principle and has attracted more than 100 million players.
Local game modes
Minecraft includes survival mode and creation mode.
The creative mode allows you to create anything you want as you want it. While survival demands to survive the zombies that arrive at night.
It is possible to play in split screen mode on console only. The screen is then divided into 2, and each player controls his character on his part of the screen.
It is possible to guide your child in this way.
Up to 4 players can play together locally.
Online gaming modes
You can play online if you pay for your console’s subscription:
Playstation 4 and 5: Playstation Plus
Free online game on PC.
Players can join servers created by other players and enter each player’s world.
On PC, players can easily communicate with each other with voice or keyboard. It is therefore necessary to warn players of the possible risks of these interactions.
There are microtransactions that are offered to the player, to buy costumes, or different colors of blocks.
Minecraft is a game that leaves the player with the choice of everything, all the time. He can dig non-stop, make tunnels, castles in the sky, huts, houses… it all depends on his imagination. If the child needs guidance and goals to enjoy a game, it is not for him.
On the contrary, if he likes to create, imagine stories without limit of time or resources, he will love it. He can play with his parents or friends on the same console. He can also join his friends online on the Internet. In this case, it is necessary to have increased parental supervision as always when it comes to the Internet.
