Let's face it, the best Minecraft servers are those you and your friends have created, worked on for years and built villages and Spongebob fan artwork in. Your blocks tell the stories from a thousand projects.
After a while, however, even the most impressive collective achievements can become a bit stale. At least for a time. There are always servers available for you like the ones below.
They are more like clubs than single shared universes and offer a variety of modes, challenges, and options for solo play as well as group play. We are going to show you if you thought battle royale games were lacking in blockiness.
You should keep in mind that not all servers can run on both Java and Bedrock editions of the game. It takes a lot of code and content to mold the game in different directions. For some servers, it is just not possible (or worth the time of the creators) to translate all of it to Bedrock Edition.
We are starting with exactly the type of server we just mentioned: an "everything" proposition with a large player count and multiple modes, including survival, eggwars rpg, and battle royale.
This can feel different if you have only been playing on your survival servers up to now. You no longer have to cook pork, upgrade your wood hut's floor, and try to find a way to use all your redstone. It has been replaced by a deep, sometimes frenetic, multiplayer experience.
Of course Hypixel. Since forever, it's been the most beloved destination for Minecraft minigame lovers. While it doesn't offer the same long-term proposition as others or the depth of custom content necessary to create a single coherent universe, it does offer instant gratification in many flavours. It's like a cuboid candy store.
Skyblock is a cherished favorite, as well as cart racing minigames. However, you can spend an entire evening sampling each minigame and still feel deeply fulfilled spiritually. Pure enjoyment without the need to learn new things like a lot of servers.
This one is easy to explain. You get to be in Middle-Earth but in Minecraft. Everywhere you look there is a beautiful piece of movie-faithful architecture.
Enjoy quality time with film royalty in Hobbit holes, chill with a grey wizard, and then follow a route of the fellowship across the map. There are even guided tours.
This is the most ambitious and complete fantasy proposal on this list. Origin Realms is brimming over custom content and looks visually stunning onscreen. It swaps the usual boring expanses of water with lily-filled fantasy glades or thick, detailed woodland.
Origin Realms is not trying to overhaul the gameplay. However, there are some visual changes. The goal is to expand on the traditional survival experience. It's a great starter server for those who are more comfortable playing on their friends' servers.
Mining Dead takes survival to a new and more difficult level. Although Mining Dead is an old concept, it's far more than a simple imitation of The Walking Dead TV series. The addition of a thirst system and a revamped hunger system gives you plenty to think about when you're not fighting off a cannibal dead body with a basic axe.
There is one rule in Minewind that prohibits cheating. It's a free-for-all PvP combat, destruction, and looting. If you have never played custom large group servers before, it's not the best place to start. You and all the blocks you love will be destroyed.
Sometimes you just want to let loose. If you can survive for more that 40 seconds, there are many compelling MMO elements for you to explore and keep coming back for. It will be you, the one everyone is running from in fear. Sweet revenge.
If you are a fan of fantasy landscapes but hate Hobbits, or if you have spent so much time in Minecraft Middle Earth that your memory is shaky, Westeroscraft might be the right choice.
It's a difficult and nearly impossible project to imagine that maps the major locations of Game of Thrones in terrifying detail. It's a testament to virtual architecture genius. It's also a chance for you to explore a map that has been around as long as Minecraft videos. "Look at this cool spot - how did they do that?" Every Minecraft video since 2012.
Minecraft is now a decade old and is still a game engine. Wynncraft is a testament to its versatility as a platform. Although technically it is a server, it is a full-blown MMO.
Join guilds, fight raids, and take on boss fights at end of massive questlines with a lot of lore. 262 of them. Inspired by Runescape and Minecraft's most popular MMO, Minecraft enjoys similar longevity.
Have you ever attempted to create a vehicle in vanilla Minecraft? To get a Quasimodo-looking lump of slime, honey and levers to move along the floor, it takes a whole lot of redstone, droppers, droppers, droppers, and sticky notes. Log on to PirateMC to control a pirate vessel.
It is amazing that this game makes naval warfare possible, and it is also a lot of fun. Also, shout out to the intricately sculpted skull islands that can be found in the blue yonder.
GTA Online is something we all know well. However, seeing the minutiae in a more friendly and approachable format makes the whole idea of driving around in cars and being a crim feel renewed.
You can commit crimes, build a home full of luxury, and then just relax in your private jet. It sounds great to us.
