Both Minecraft editions on PC will now be sold together

Minecraft: Java & Bedrock Edition

A small, yet welcome, change. Minecraft, one of the most popular games of all times, is about to witness a change on the PC platform. A change that will affect Windows users of the blockbuster title.

In case you’re unaware, Minecraft on PC has traditionally been available to download in two separate editions — the Java Edition and the Bedrock Edition. Both flavors of the game are unique, with the former being originally available and the latter a fresher introduction in 2017.

But the big news is that all this changes now.

Starting June 7, both versions of the game will be sold together.

That is to say, a single purchase will now give you both editions of the game in one package conveniently called Minecraft: Java & Bedrock Edition for PC. The new package will offer players both edition of the game to play with one purchase.

There is good news for those who have already purchased one of the editions. Anyone missing the Bedrock or Java Edition from their library will be granted the version that they lack for free. The process begins today, and is to be rolled out within two to three days via the Minecraft Launcher.

Pricing information for the new Minecraft: Java & Bedrock Edition for PC package have not been revealed alongside the introduction. But the company confirms that individual purchase options for the duo are going away.

In case you’re wondering, the features of these two products are not being altered. Examples being, modding support for the more flexible, better performing, and visually superior Java Edition, and cross platform multiplayer support for the smoother and faster loading Bedrock.

Only thing that is altered is that PC players are gaining access to both versions of the game.

And with this small change, peace has once again returned to the Minecraft valley!
