Microsoft knows that we all love to play Minecraft in HD or 4K to enjoy the real farming, that’s why last year they announced the 4K Super Duper graphics pack. This is the set of the graphic which will bring a lot of new visuals, graphics, art, styles, and colors.
According to Microsoft the new Minecraft 4K Super Duper Graphics Pack will have new shaders, lighting effects, and even the new textures etc. So, as a Minecraft player, you must be excited about the launch date of Minecraft 4K Super Duper graphics pack, its features and would want to know whether its free or not.
To help you with all of your questions related to Minecraft 4K Super Duper graphics packs, I bring a detailed post about it. This will surely answer all your questions.
The release date of Minecraft Super Duper 4K Graphics Pack:
The pack was supposed to release in 2017 but unfortunately, it was delayed. The pack has been made for the Bedrock version of Minecraft which was specially supported by Xbox One X and Windows 10 PC but unfortunately, there was a delay in the launch of the Minecraft Super Duper graphics pack.
According to the developer of Minecraft, they are still working on this pack to make it more supportive so that it can work beyond Windows 10 and Xbox X.
The Developer also claims the Minecraft Super Duper pack will also work on Nintendo Switch, VR, mobile devices, etc.
The Microsoft has not officially announced any release date for this graphics pack, but it is expected that the Super Duper graphics pack will be released at the end of 2018 or in the start of 2019. We will update the date as soon as we get any confirmation from Minecraft and Microsoft.
Features of Minecraft Super Duper 4K Graphics Pack:
Expect the new iconic look of Minecraft on the launch of 4K graphics pack. This pack is awaited due to the features which have been promised by Microsoft which goes equally well on all devices where one can play Minecraft including PC with Windows 10.
Here are some of the features of the Minecraft Super Duper 4K graphics pack that we know so far:
- Better water textures which come up with reflective surfaces
- Volumetric lighting to give dramatic look to the whole game
- Objective edge highlighting with dynamic shadows
- Objects with 3D models to replace the flat textures
- Reflective textures for blocks to add highlights to diamond blocks etc.
Don’t these features make you excited?
Although all these features are being produced by Minecraft developers themselves. There is an alternative that adds graphic enhancements to Minecraft, and unlike SDGP it is totally free.
Optifine HD is the name of this tool, it allows you to load Shader Packs in Minecraft. Some shader packs have incredible graphics, very similar to SDGP. If you are very anxious it is a great alternative.
Price of Minecraft Super Duper 4K Graphics Pack:
I won’t say much about price. Walmart had earlier labeled $10 for this graphics pack before pulling down the listing from their online store. So expect the same price of this pack in future after the release of 4K Super Duper graphics pack.
Somehow this will be available to download and install free in the future like we have seen how graphics packs become available for free after some time.
