The Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition beta is now available with the launch of Windows 10 yesterday.
Mojang provided details about the beta in a blog post yesterday: if you’re one of the 20 million-ish players who already had Minecraft on Windows or Mac, you’ll receive the new version for free. All you have to do is sign into your Mojang account and click redeem. Mojang added, “This is still rolling out, so don’t panic if you can’t see the button on your account page yet! Check back later!”
You’ll also be able to purchase Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition in the Windows Store for $9.99, though only if you’re running Windows 10.
