The insanely popular block-building game Minecraft, will officially debut on the Xbox One console this Friday. The game will sell for $20 USD or alternatively, $4.99 for those whom have already purchased the game on Xbox 360 and wish to upgrade.

The Xbox One version of the game reportedly will boast buildable worlds up to 36 times bigger than those existing on the Xbox 360 version, as well as four-player local co-op with splitscreen. Players will still be able to connect online in cooperative parties of up to eight people in a game at a given time.

The news comes on the heels of reports that Minecraft had failed final testing for Playstation 4 certification in early August, as confirmed by the games' developer Mojang. However, there have been unconfirmed rumors circulating that the PS4 version of the game may see a release in September as well.
