minecraft java windows 10

Minecraft is one of the most popular games currently played and the most popular game in the voxel genre. However, Minecraft has been around for a while now, and times have change.

The players that used to play it when it was first released most likely use Windows 10 by now. As such, it was only a matter of time until the Windows 10 version would be pushed into public attention.

Minecraft Java can get Windows 10 is free until April, 20

That being said, Mojang recently announced that anyone that acquired Minecraft before October 2018 is now eligible for a free copy of Minecraft for Windows 10:

[…] If you did buy Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018, then you might not be aware that you’re entitled to a FREE copy of the Windows 10 version. It’s an offer that we ended a couple of Octobers ago, but you still have some time to redeem your free copy if you bought Java Edition way back when!

This is exciting news for Minecraft players, especially those thinking of trying the Windows 10 version of the game.

This isn’t the first time the developer made Minecraft for Windows 10 free for Minecraft Java Edition owners. The first time they did this, it was during the Beta phase of Minecraft for Windows 10

Mojang went on and added that:

After Monday, April 20th, 2020, customers who purchased Minecraft Java Edition before October 19th, 2018 will no longer be able to redeem their free version of Minecraft for Windows 10 token code. Until then, players who bought Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018 can still receive a token for Minecraft for Windows 10.

As you can tell, the offer will be available for quite a while. Thus,  anyone that still has the Java version of Minecraft has another 4 months to get the Windows 10 version.
