Minecraft has different modes like Creative Mode, Survival Mode, and a Multiplayer mode. In Multiplayer mode, you can have a group match with up to 10 players. Minecraft had an official app made available on the Apple TV platform before. However, it was taken down from the service because of less user interaction.
