If you haven’t heard the massive news for Minecraft PE, it is that Mojang will soon be bringing Realms to Minecraft Pocket Edition with the highly anticipated Minecraft PE 0.15.0 update.
That update is currently in beta where you can now try out Realms for free.
The new feature isn’t going to be free forever though. Mojang will be running a special service for you and your friends and although they said that pricing will be worked out at a later date – it may already be the same system as for Minecraft players on PC.
Presuming that’s the case, then you can expect the Minecraft PE 0.15.0 Realms price to be $7.99 a month in the US on a recurring subscription or £5.59 in the UK.
Getting the service separately month on month will be £6.99, £18.99, and £33.99 for one, three or six months respectively and in the US that translates to $9.99, $26.99, and $47.99.
It’s not a cheap service at all but for the price you’ll be getting a private Minecraft experience for you and your friends and family up to 10 people. The server will be your private haven, running 24/7 and supported by Mojang at all times which could be ideal for you.
We’re not entirely sure if these will be the final prices for Realms on Pocket Edition, but at least you can get a heads-up now if you have been intrigued about the beta that has just opened up.
