Minecraft Realms opens up to bring Mojang servers worldwide

Mojang's new subscription service that hosts and sets up multiplayer servers for Minecraft is available now worldwide. Minecraft Realms launched in North America last month for PC and Mac, and this week Mojang expanded it globally - no forgotten realms, then. In the UK, for example, one month's subscription sets you back eight of Her Maj's pounds sterling.

In North America the asking price is $13 per month, although there are discounts on three and six-month subscriptions. The service includes an automatic backup feature if you want to rip up creations and start anew, and Mojang also promises minigames and exclusive events. If you fancy inviting pals to join you in your new virtual pad, be advised a Minecraft Realms world allows up to 10 players at a single time.
