New on Realms: Forgotten Things and Flying Wings!

Three new games and adventures for you and your friends

Welcome, brave adventurers. Last time we met, we unveiled the new experiences category on Realms for PC, led by the epic music event Big Giant Light Show. This week, we’ve got a trio of treats for you to test your wits, your wayfinding and your wingsuit skills.

First we hop, skip and puzzle our way through a visually striking adventure map set amid the overgrown ruins of an ancient jungle temple. Then we pelt through a rapid-fire gauntlet of parkour arenas that should challenge even the most sure-footed player. Finally, we take to the skies in elytra-powered air-battles and try to not faceplant into any walls... with mixed success.

Sound like your cup of tea? Then take a big old metaphorical swig of this post! Mmm! Delicious.

The Forgotten Book

by Foleros and tomaxed

Recently, I’ve been reminiscing about older, immersive games that took you on adventures around the globe. Games such as The Amazon Trail, which featured sights and sounds that transported you into an exotic location, complete with narrative and a solemn duty. The Forgotten Book scratches that itch through its cutscenes, voiceovers, textures and custom mechanics, such as wall grappling. Starting the map drops you right into the story and presents you with a world that you won’t want to leave.

10 Minute Parkour

by FantomLX, iWacky, and Tiliba

Parkour maps are all the rage in Minecraft, and 10 Minute Parkour has you running and jumping through a random selection of 101 different mini arenas. Special blocks aid or hinder you as you jump higher or get knocked about. Completing a level gives you a point, skipping a level removes one. Moesh’s best record is 22 levels, while mine is… somewhere in the negatives. See if you can beat our scores!

ELYTRON

by Theticman, ChildOfStars

Did you know that elytron is the singular form of the word elytra, the two wing cases of a beetle? It’s true! Elytron also makes for neat wordplay, as this map features mechanics that remind us of the movie Tron’s light bikes. Here we have a fancy elytra-based, competitive minigame where players outlast their opponents by rocketing around the arena and avoiding the glass trails! Team up with your friends, or bait them into flying into a wall. Be careful to avoid your own walls!
