    Hello!

    We have exciting news to share! A whole new version of Minecraft is on its way. This time, it’s for Windows 10 – Microsoft’s new swanky operating system that’s due for release on July 29th.

    We’re calling it Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta.

    Just like the first release of Minecraft all those years ago, this version will develop and evolve over time with the help of your feedback. That’s why it has “Beta” in the title – because it’s not quite finished, and will become even more fun over time. Just like the other versions of Minecraft, all future updates will be free. We spoil you. We really do.

    If you’re one of the 20 million(!) players who have the PC edition of Minecraft (referred to by techy people as the Java version) you’ll be able to download Windows 10 Edition Beta from the Windows 10 store for free. Other players can get it for the paltry price of $10 during the beta period (the length of which is still being decided).

    Minecraft is available on Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS, Android, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita, and now, Windows 10. Not every version of Minecraft is exactly the same, but they all feature two distinct game modes – Creative and Survival – that cater to different types of players. All versions of Minecraft support multiplayer.

    THE “MINECRAFT: WINDOWS 10 EDITION” BETA WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD IN THE WINDOWS 10 STORE BEGINNING JULY 29. PLAYERS WHO ALREADY HAVE THE PC EDITION OF “MINECRAFT” WILL BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD THE WINDOWS 10 BETA VERSION FREE. OTHERS CAN DOWNLOAD “MINECRAFT: WINDOWS 10 EDITION” AT A DISCOUNTED PRICE OF $10 THROUGHOUT THE BETA PERIOD. PLAYERS WHO DOWNLOAD “MINECRAFT: WINDOWS 10 EDITION” DURING THE BETA PHASE WILL STILL HAVE THE GAME WHEN IT COMES OUT OF BETA, AND RECEIVE ALL FUTURE UPDATES TO THE GAME AT NO ADDITIONAL COST.

    At first I thought this was some sort of bot scam.

    However this is actually a blog post on the official blog at mojang... so... yeah.. Thanks for bringing this to light. Not sure how they'll know if you already bought it or not.

    It also seems to be the mobile version, or a variant of that, or in some way tied with the Xbox version... it's hard to keep track as they try to get cross-platform and really understand what that means.
