Hey guys. I've just been reading over on Reddit that the Minecraft: Bedrock Edition is now live.

I've just updated our version to the Bedrock Edition and can confirm the easy steps to take work as intended :).

  • Must own the Digital Minecraft: Xbox Edition. Disc owners are not supported
  • Download the XBOX Insider App, and agree to the Terms and Conditions in it
  • Navigate to Insider content, and select Minecraft Beta

  • Community Servers
  • Able to Transfer your Worlds from Legacy Edition to Bedrock Edition
  • Command Blocks and Structure Blocks
  • Dynamic Lighting that is coming this Fall though a Free update
  • Split-Screen
  • Cross-play with players from other devices(Only for Switch, Iphone, Android, PC, Oculus Rift. No cross-play with Java Edition and PS4)
  • Modifications/Custom-Add Ons

Are Fred, Betty and Bam Bam playable? Or they DLC?

Disappointing that it's not available for disc owners especially since I have it (more like the kids have it) on Xbox One, PS4, IPad, Mac and PC

Not sure what the difference is, but this beta is actually for the Better Together Update.

The core game is still there, there's only 2 versions, this new Beta and the now 'old' one which has been renamed to Legacy Edition. You can play on a PC with someone who's playing on an Xbox, or a phone too I believe, and vice versa so they're all compatible.

What does this mean:
Features not present:
Legacy Edition Crafting

?? Eh? no crafting?

I'm guessing that unlike PC (java) version where you have to know what "ingredients" you need, AND what position to put them in the crafting grid, that this is more like the xbox and windows app versions - if you have the items you need, you can just select from the menu icons.

Makes it easier especially when learning, but hard-core pc / java players probably won't be happy at the "dumbing down"...

Got into minecraft to help my young daughters, and it's been good fun!
