PC minigame server overlord Mineplex announced the other day that they’re beginning development on a new Minecraft Pocket Edition minigame network, to compete with our beloved Lifeboat Survival Games and Instant PVP Network.
Mineplex Pocket Edition is the Mineplex you know and love, recreated on Minecraft Pocket Edition for mobile phones and tablets. Now you will be able to play your favorite games whether you’re at home or on the go!
Mineplex recently ‘broke’ the record for the most players on a server at once – 40,000. Unbeknownst to them, Lifeboat SG already had that record. When the Mineplex PE server is in full swing, it’s likely they’ll take this record indefinitely.
Powered By Redstone wrote that Mineplex’s new plans could “change multiplayer forever”, although that does seem far fetched. Hopefully Mineplex can recreate some of their hottest minigames within PE’s limits, such as Draw My Thing or Super Smash Mobs, stuff we haven’t seen on any PE server.
Lifeboat’s notable minigames only include Sky Wars, Spleef, & Survival Games, and InPVP with their Hunger Games & Block Hunt. Mineplex already has a far more diverse range of games on their PC server, and we’re likely to see the most popular ones make their way to the new Pocket Edition server.
Do you think the new Mineplex server is awesome? Should LBSG and InPVP be worried? Comment below!
