We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
When the new updates are available will you have to start a new game for them to activate or can I use my same world? I heard on the PC version that you had to start a new world to get the updates to work.
I think it will depend on the updates you are talking about. Updates that involve a change in the terrain or resources therein will likely require a new world. I believe the developers have stated so in an interview. However, other updates like the ability
to stack fences, new crafting recipes with current resources, etc., that do not involve changes in the terrain and the resources therein will probably not require a new world be started. That said, I don't think we know that for certain.
