What are the controls and how to play Minecraft

If you have never played Minecraft , you should know that it is a game that offers absolute freedom. You have in front of you a huge world to explore or even modify at your mercy from a first-person camera. There are so many possibilities that, in fact, we invite you to take a look at our complete Minecraft guide to learn the first things to do in Minecraft or how to play on PC, PS4 or Xbox One . The player can use the keyboard or controller to move and interact with the environment, but what are the useful keys in Minecraft ? We tell you everything below.


To start playing this title, you need to know its controls . However, before we get into that, let's explain exactly how to play Minecraft . What do you do? What is your purpose? There is a lot of fabric to cut, or a lot of blocks to collect, but we are going to do everything in an orderly way so that you know well.


How to play Minecraft

You are already in the main menu of the game, but you don't know where to start. The first thing you should know is that there are different game modes in Minecraft . In this section we are going to limit ourselves to explaining how to play in Survival Mode , since it is the main adventure that you can play alone or with friends; but there are also other very interesting modalities.


Within the game menu, you have to click on the option to create a game and choose Survival mode . Once that is done, your real odyssey as a gamer in this blocky world will begin.


Minecraft is a first-person game in which you move through a huge expanse of terrain with different biomes . You can travel through meadows, climb snowy peaks, enter jungles or lose yourself in deserts; But, above all, you can excavate, create mines or enter caves that go deep into this world.


All of that, while collecting resources, building and crafting, finding villages, trading with villagers, fighting enemies, and even controlling your hunger by eating every now and then. You should know that there is a basic rule: during the day the danger is minimal, but at night is when the monsters come out. You can meet zombies that chase you, explosive Creepers and even Endermans that attack you if you look them in the eye.


Enemies with which you can fight using both short and long distance weapons , or even spells once you have advanced enough in the game. If you defeat them, you gain experience, you level up and you can get more resources to make even more original and different creations. Still, you must be careful. ** If you are killed, you will respawn in the last shelter you were in and lose all the items **, you will only get them back if you go back to where you died and collect everything.


What a cocktail, right? Do not worry, when night comes you can sleep in a bed and rest , recovering life and returning to daytime to continue exploring with a little more tranquility. Everyone plays Minecraft as they prefer, and the best thing is that you can do it both alone and with friends, and that the experience never ends.


Minecraft has no end , although you can "spend" it by defeating the Ender Dragon; but it is an infinite game. The only limit is set by you and your imagination.
