Minecraft for windows 10 announced

A new version of Minecraft is being developed specifically with Windows 10 in mind and a beta will launch on July 29th. 

Here’s what Mojang had to say about it. 

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 are one of the 20 million players that own it on PC, you’ll be able to download the beta free on Windows 10. While the length of the beta hasn’t been decided yet, players can experience the game for only $10 and will continue to own the game after it’s beta phase.
