I’ve had Minecraft for my Xbox for a couple years but I haven’t touched it in a while, but after seeing many posts with a lot of creativity I feel inspired to play Minecraft after a long time. The only thing is, I don’t have Xbox Live. What things can i do when playing by myself?
That’s up to you. I only play single player and I enjoy playing that way. As for game modes, there’s creative and survival, hardcore survival may keep you more interested (if you die, you’re done). Pretty sure you could still download special maps/modes without Xbox live, but some cost money; look up Minecraft marketplace.
To keep yourself interested suggest you have a goal, plan or idea for how you want your world to be. There are the achievements to go for etc. For me it’s creating an empire of villages that I fortify and build up. I have roads between them, their own names and so on, only started playing servers this year after years of playing offline (except for updates).
