A big part of Mincraft's success is how the game is available on basically every platform you can think of. Today, that list got one longer: Minecraft is now available on the Apple TV. As usual, it's the Minecraft experience you know and perhaps love, but with a few things missing. Namely, the multiplayer Minecraft Realms and Xbox Live support, though the developers say those features will be added in the "near future." The $19.99 entry price gets you the game as well as seven DLC packs: the Holiday 2015, Town Folk and City Folk skin packs as well as the Plastic, Natural, Cartoon, and Festive 2016 "mash-ups."

Minecraft was first announced for Apple TV by Tim Cook at Apple's October MacBook Pro refresh event, though details on how the game would play were slim. But the game sounds like it'll be pretty up-to-date, aside from those missing multiplayer features. The Apple TV edition will include the just-announced "Ender update," which brings a whole bunch of new single-player content to the experience. If you want to check it all out, you can go grab the app on Apple TV now.
