Players who have already purchased Minecraft in its original. Java format have until the end of the day on Monday to submit a request for a free copy of the Windows 10 edition of the game.
Mojang, the company that developed Minecraft, was acquired by Microsoft in 2014. And the Windows 10 beta of the game was released the following year. The Java Edition of Minecraft will continue to be supported for the foreseeable future. But, it is abundantly evident that the Bedrock Edition.
Which supports play across several platforms including mobile devices, gaming consoles, and personal computers, is where the game’s future lies. Anyone who purchased the Java Edition prior to the 19th of October, 2018, is eligible for the free upgrade to the Windows 10 Edition. This upgrade has been made available by Microsoft for some time now.
You can easily get a free copy of Minecraft if you can just remember your Mojang login from a thousand years ago. This is the only requirement. After logging in to your Mojang account, you should see a button labeled “claim your free copy” underneath the Minecraft entry in “My Games.”
This button will only appear if you already own the Java edition of Minecraft. The sale will end at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on April 20; after that. You will be required to purchase the Windows 10 Edition on its own, which will cost you $26.99.
When you have your free copy of the game and are officially keyed into the Windows 10 version of the game, you will be able to join the beta for Minecraft with RTX, which will provide you with the most realistic-looking blocks you’ve ever seen in a video game.
To play the RTX version of the game, all you have to do is make a decision in the menu that’s available while you’re playing. (Of course, in addition to that, you’ll need a graphics card powered by Nvidia’s GeForce RTX.)
