    Good Evening All.

    My son has minecraft on a disc & has been playing on it without any issue. However, as he tried to play this evening, it is asking him to subscribe to Xbox live to continue play. Do we need to do this? He has been quite happy playing without the need to
    go live. I have changed the settings to offline but it didn't solve the issue. Any advice gratefully received!!

    :)

    Do we need Xbox live to play minecraft?

    Hi ShapedGrain3700,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in the forums for this question. Minecraft itself may be played in an offline capacity without the need to have an Xbox Live Gold subscription; however, if your son wishes to utilize the following aspects of game play
    within Minecraft, he then would need a subscription:

    • Realms
    • Connecting to servers
    • Cross-platform play

    For local multiplayer gaming, you don’t need an Xbox Live Gold subscription. For a bit more information, I recommend checking out our

    Minecraft FAQ page
    as well.

    I hope that this information helps you out!

    Hey,

    If you want play only Single player mode, so you don't need Xbox LIVE Gold subscription.

    But if you want play multiplayer, you will need Xbox LIVE Gold subscription.

    On every multiplayer mode in every game, you need Gold subscription.

    Xbox Play Anywhere Without Xbox?

    Good to know!

    But do we need an Xbox Live account to play against people on Xbox One or to buy/play the Play Anywhere games?

    You're talking about a Microsoft account, but this one is free right?
