New on Realms: Fireworks and Freeform Forts

An explosive new music experience comes to PC Realms

Every few weeks, we update PC Realms with new free maps, minigames and experiences - each made by cool community creators and carefully selected by us, before being polished up, packaged and made available for you to grab from within the game itself.

This week we have a new music experience, bringing precisely 266% more DOPE TRACKS than any music experience before it, combined with a fireworks display that delivers a mathematically unmeasurable quantity of both "OOOH" and "AAAH"!

Following that are two minigames that put a new spin on past designs: a perilous parkour map that loads in as you leap, and a fortress defence gametype where you plug together modular components to create an impenetrable base. They're sure to keep you busy throughout the week and beyond! Let’s dig in, shall we?

Fireworks Extravaganza

by Guenstig

While we wouldn’t usually recommend that you not read this blog, if you were to stop right here, close your browser, and boot up Minecraft to try this map immediately, we wouldn’t blame you. This is one of the coolest submissions to Realms that we’ve received.

Accompanying a colossal quantity of explosions are eight tracks by Approaching Nirvana, a favourite of Minecraft streamers whose tracks have been heard at previous MINECONs. Be sure to load up each one and see if you can find the hidden egg firework!

Fortress Frenzy

by ChainsawNinja

It's been a while since we’ve had a map quite like this. Back in the day, we had CastleRise: Brothers’ Feud, a popular modular building and attack game. Fortress Frenzy puts its own spin on this game style, giving each team a limited currency to spend on defensive structures, items and weapons. With 18 modules to pick from, and a 5x6 grid on which to arrange them, there are many strategic combinations to explore. Or perhaps you'll save on construction and shell out for a more offensive strategy. In either case, be sure to complete your base within the time limit, because when the time is up, the opposing force will be on their way!

Chunk Runner

We’ve covered many parkour maps here in the past, but it's always nice to see a fresh take on the genre. A puzzling map generates in front of you and disappears behind. You and your friends need to plan ahead and be fast on your feet in order to survive.

That's all for now!
