Create or join a Realm

An Xbox Live account makes it possible to access Minecraft Realms, a subscription-based service that lets you play online with your friends whenever you want, on your own private server. Use Xbox Live to invite up to 10 friends to create, survive, or compete in your private world. They can continue the adventure even when you’re offline.
