AJSA Special Operation - July 2018 - Announcement
Join the Angry Army this July for Special Operations: New Worlds! Travel across land, sea, and space that will bring the community together in an epic journey of world exploration, discovery, and adventure.
Across PC and console members will be engaging exciting and awe-inspiring voyages. On Playstation 4 you will be taking part in an interplanetary enterprise across the galaxy on No Man's Sky. On PC and Xbox One you will be taking part in a cross-play adventure spanning new lands and deep sea on Minecraft.
Special Operations: New Worlds will have you document your journey as you team up with your friends to build, travel, and explore. To archive and share your experiences with the community, you can:
- Take screenshots/pictures
- Record video
- Keep a log/journal
Discover a new planet on No Man's Sky? Take pictures, take notes on the environment, or even set up a base there to call home on. Discover an underwater sea temple on Minecraft? Write down the coordinates, rally your friends to explore the structure together, and uncover hidden secrets. Hear the calling and join us in these New Worlds!
This article will serve as a formal announcement of the Special Operation. An article on July 21st will cover complete details and outlines of the events part of the Special Operation. However in preparation we'd still like to share with you some information we think is important for you to know:
- This Special Operation will span across two days. The Minecraft event in particular will be broken up into two days, with one portion of the event being held on Friday July 27th and the other on Saturday July 28th. The No Man's Sky event will take place on Saturday July 28th.
- For No Man's Sky, Playstation 4 participants will need to have the 'No Man's Sky NEXT' update installed. This is a free update being released on July 24th that will introduce multiplayer and other cool features to the game that you'll experience while participating in the event.
For Minecraft we will be using the Xbox community world that they've been using since August 2017 for the cross-play activities. We have set up an online 'Minecraft Realm' to allow for easy access and play between PC/Xbox members (Nintendo Switch members are invited too!)
- PC participants must have the Minecraft: Windows 10 version to participate and gain access to the Realm. If you have an old version of Minecraft you can log into your Mojang account, go to https://account.mojang.com/me and click on 'Claim Your Free Copy'. This will allow you to upgrade your version of Minecraft to the most current one.
- While Realms is a great way to cross-play, there is a limit of 10 people online on a Realm at once. To ensure everyone can get to play we will be breaking up the event into two portions (as noted above) so we can have as many people get the opportunity to play as possible.
- Invites to the Realm will be distributed during the Minecraft events. The Realm will continue to operate after the Special Operation is over so any PC members who gain access to the Realm are free to return and play when they do choose.

Have any questions? Please reach out to us and/or leave a comment down in this article. We will be happy to be of assistance! Thank you and see you at the end of July.
