How to claim your copy of Minecraft Windows 10 beta


Windows 10 has launched today and as Mojang has already announced a New version of Minecraft will be coming to the new OS. Those who already own Minecraft on PC, which is a nor so small 20 million users will be getting this version for free, and today we will show you how to claim your copy.

First you must go to your Mojang account and log in using your own username and password. Once you log in you should be able to see a "Redeem" button on your account page, which will prompt you to sign into your Microsoft account.

After following the onscreen instructions you will then be able to play in the Minecraft Windows 10 Beta.

One thing to note however is the fact that not all users will be able to redeem their new copy yet, as the notification is still being rolled out to all accounts. This may take a day or so to resolve, so check back later if you do not see the below option.

Here are some highlights of what players will enjoy in Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta:


  • - Craft, create, and explore online with up to seven friends playing Windows 10 Edition Beta, through local multiplayer or with your Xbox Live friends online.
  • - Play online and local multiplayer with other Pocket Edition players thanks to a free update, due to arrive soon after launch.
  • - Support for multiple inputs – switch between controller, touch, and keyboard controls with little to no effort
  • - Record and share gameplay highlights with built-in GameDVR.
  • - Help shape the future of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta with built-in player feedback mechanisms
  • - Chickens, zombies, pigs, boats, armed skeletons, potatoes, zombies, baby squids, enchantment tables, villagers, naked sheep, iron golems, potions, ghasts, pickaxes, carrots, and all the weird and wonderful goodness you’ve come to expect from Minecraft


Like the first release of Minecraft all those years ago, this version will develop and evolve over time with the help of player’s 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.
