What is an MCA file?

World format used by Minecraft, a game that allows open-ended construction of worlds; replaces the older .MCR (Minecraft Region) format and includes enhancements such as an increased build height (256 up from 128), support for more block types, and more efficient file compression; also enables greater modding capabilities for the game community.

More Information
