Mojang announces new version of Minecraft

Mojang has announced Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta, which will be available through the Windows 10 store on July 29…  A day after Windows 10 is offically released.

You can read the post on the Mojang website.

From what they’re saying, Windows 10 Edition is based off of Minecraft PE, and players on the Windows 10 edition will be able to play multiplayer with both other MCPE and Minecraft XBox one editions.  I do find it strange, both the XBox one and PE versions of minecraft have features which the other one doesn’t have.  I wonder how that’ll work, I guess time will tell.

The new edition will be free to people who already own the PC version of Minecraft, if you don’t have the PC Version, it’ll cost you $10 for the beta version (Eventually the price will go up)

I feel sad that they don’t have Linux on the list of platforms that Minecraft is available on, as I generally play Minecraft on Linux, as it seems to run a bit more smoothly there.  Here’s their list of systems that you can run Minecraft on.

Minecraft is available on Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS, Android, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita, and now, Windows 10.

Oh and Mojang also showed a preview of the new game – Minecraft: Story Mode, made by Telltale games.

I haven’t played any of their games, but I have heard that Telltale games does make some nice story-driven games. I wonder what their Minecraft story will be like.

Well anyways, have a nice day.
