The Minecraft creator Mojang announced on Wednesday that the game’s parent self-service servers would now be available on the world’s most popular online game.
The announcement follows the shutdown of Minecraft for three weeks on Tuesday by Microsoft, which has since issued a new operating system for Minecraft and Minecraft Realms.
The move was triggered by a security flaw that allowed a remote attacker to exploit a remote code execution vulnerability in Minecraft to cause the game to crash and cause users to lose their internet connection.
According to the announcement, the servers will be able to load new maps, update existing maps, and allow players to use their own worlds.
Users of Minecraft Realms, the game that currently powers Minecraft, can also download new maps and start playing in new realms.
The news comes after the announcement that Microsoft’s new operating systems are intended to prevent a repeat of the 2008-09 computer virus outbreak, which affected more than 150 million people.
