When Windows 10 goes live on July 29, Minecraft lovers will have another reason to feel joyous about as the software giant has added the iconic game to its upcoming Windows version.
On July 4, MineCon conference, a worldwide gathering for Minecraft players was held where Microsoft announced that the Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta will be arriving on the platform when it goes live.
It isn’t the first platform where the game has been added. The game rests on varied platforms including Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS, Android, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. After purchasing its creator Mojang last year, Microsoft extended the game to its virtual-reality headset HoloLens as well.
However, the game has been optimized for Windows 10. A report on Cnet notes that Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta includes seamless swapping between touchscreen, controller or keyboard/mouse controls, Xbox Live and Minecraft Pocket Edition online play, and record/share support for built-in GameDVR functions.
For the existing Minecraft PC owners, the game will be free, while it will cost $10 for others.
