[Xbox One] Minecraft Free Weekend - Xbox Store

Editor
It looks like it's going to rain all weekend

Great news for the kids. Minecraft is free to play on Xbox One this weekend. Although I'd assume most, if not all the children own it. It's a great chance for those who don't to have a go.

I'll expect nothing less than this by Sunday...

Free weekends are worth installing in case you pick up a cheap scratched disc.
Got a copy of rainbow six siege for a fiver that fails to install but is now fully working thanks the free weekend a wee while back.

If your scratched disc doesn't install or stops installing you can cancel it and delete anything it has managed to install so far with the disc still in the console. Then find the game in the Microsoft store and you'll have an option to install from there. It recognises you own the disc but downloads the information from the store. No need to install every free weekend game

​No problem. As long as it recognises the disc
first off you should be good to go. Let me know how you get on.

Am I the only one that's never played minecraft? What do you actually have to do?
Seems like a good deal though!

Yeah - sadly the kids managed to crack it as they removed it from the case, brand new too, aw well. Oh and the other one thats scratched is GTA V, no digital download available for that one, the game works fine for about an hour and then freezes, I thought it was the console, however when I checked the disk there a few faint scratches...
All good tips - and heat added OP - thanks for the heads up!

Free online multiplayer for all games! WOHOOO!

Nope. Me neither. The idea doesn't interest me in the slightest. FIFA, survival horror and blasting things are fun.

I googled this a few weeks ago, Microsoft don't allow this for minecraft for some reason.

All other games I get the install option, but not for minecraft.
