Hello!

Windows 10 – Microsoft’s shiny new operating system – launches tomorrow. As announced at MINECON 2015 a few weeks ago it features a brand-new Edition of Minecraft. We’re calling it Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta.

If you’re one of the 20 million(ish) players who already own Minecraft for PC/Mac, you get the new version for free. Completely free!

Thank you Captain obvious!

What if we don't already have it for PC/Mac but plan on getting it a little later? I'm planning on keeping Windows 7 for a good lota months. Is it as long as we have a copy/buy a copy at any time, should be free whenever we do the upgrade?

How is it obvious, you stated free in the title when it is not free a spend is required to have been made thus negating the free aspect. Its a free "upgrade". If it was truly free your "deal" would not be in negative figures as it is currently.

Can I be runner up?

Rubbish,misleading post.

So If I bought it now, would I still qualify? What's the difference?

Thank you Captain misleading title!

phew! Posted this, this morning but it was spammed as a duplicate. Looking at the cold votes, that's a good thing

I was thinking of buying Windows 10 edition for my son. Does anyone know if I were to buy the standard pc edition, would I still qualify for the 10 edition free, sounds stupid, but I just want to make sure it isn't for existing owners upto release date.

Does anyone have any advice on purchasing the standard pc edition or where is cheapest?

It seems like it's going to be $10 in the Windows store (through the beta stage at least), so it's probably best just to buy the Windows 10 version and forget about the standard (Java) version, presuming the Windows 10 version doesn't just suck really badly.

Thanks for the reply.

My way of thinking was if I'm going to pay $10 (not sure what they'll charge in UK, but current conversion is £6.40) I may pay the extra to get the standard version too, even though it costs more now than a while back, as that version supports mods and so much more. My son asks for mods alot, but the mobile versions don't support this, as it's built for console / dlc.

That's a big assumption

In all seriousness given Windows 10, Minecraft & Hololens are huge products for MS & given the initial reaction to their acquisition of Minecraft I cannot imagine them screwing it up.
So is the new version not Java then? (please please please please)

Answered my own question Minecraft for 10 is built with C++ Woohoo no more stinky Java!

That's fair enough. I just wasn't sure that you had seen that the Windows 10 version was so cheap (initially at least). I guess we don't really know yet how the Windows 10 version stacks up as regards mods and multiplayer yet, and it may well be the case that the Java version will be better for a while at least... and you'll probably end up just stumping up the £18.

I'd be happy to take that key off your hands if you still have it?
