Modes in Minecraft

  • Survival: This is the basic mode of the game. Here you will have to fight hostile mobs, manage hunger, gain experience, and build a shelter in order to survive. If you die in a survival mode, you can respawn.
  • Adventure: In the adventure mode, players interact with mobs and experience several things for completing an adventure.
  • Creative: This is an easy-going mode. In the creative mode, the player is immune to all things. There is also no fighting involved. They can fly and have access to all the objects that they might require for building structures.
  • Hardcore: The hardcore mode in Minecraft is very similar to the survival mode. There are two distinct differences. First, the difficulty level is high in this mode, and second, in case you die in the Hardcore mode, you cannot respawn.
  • Spectator: You can really call this one a gaming mode because you don’t play. You are a mute spectator in the world where you cannot interact with any object. In this gaming mode, you can just see the world that another player has created.
