Classic is a world type exclusive to the Console Edition.

Generation[edit | edit source]

Classic world type selected in the World Options menu.

Classic worlds generate finitely (due to the lack of infinite worlds in Console Edition), with an area of 864×864 blocks (less than 1 Map). An endless sea of water preceded by an invisible barrier surrounds the edge of the world.

Classic worlds are able to generate with any of the biomes (albeit at a reduced size) and generated structures available in the current version. More villages will attempt to generate in classic than other world types.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Classic worlds are the only world type available on the Xbox 360 Edition, the PlayStation 3 Edition, the PlayStation Vita Edition, and the Wii U Edition. The Xbox One Edition, PlayStation 4 Edition, and Nintendo Switch Edition have additional world types that a Classic sized world can be expanded into. These are Small, Medium, and Large, although Large is unavailable on the Nintendo Switch Edition.
