Minecraft is coming to Xbox Game Pass

Forza Horizon 4. Ori and the Blind Forest. Sea of Thieves. What do these great games have in common? I’m awful at them They’re all on Xbox Game Pass, and very soon, Minecraft will be joining them! UPDATE: Minecraft joins Xbox Game Pass today! Shall we celebrate with a launch trailer? I think that sounds like a lovely idea:
For the uninitiated, an Xbox Game Pass membership gives you access to over a hundred great games for one low monthly price. I think it’s brilliant, and I’m not just saying that because I'm worried my subscription will get cancelled if I don’t. You can learn more about Xbox Game Pass, and try your first month for just $1, here.
Are you already an Xbox Game Pass member, but new to Minecraft? In that case, welcome to our global community and fun crafting game! There’s always something new to discover, whether it’s our recent Update Aquatic that filled Minecraft’s seas with new life, or the upcoming Village and Pillage update that’s going to be Minecraft’s biggest expansion yet! Click here to learn more about Minecraft. Don’t dig straight down or hug Creepers, and you’ll do just fine.
For those already in the Minecraft community, rejoice! You’ll soon be able to play with your friends who are Xbox Game Pass members.
WHEN WHEN WHEN???
Minecraft will be available with Xbox Game Pass on April 4, so there’s less than a month to wait! UPDATE: Much less than a month, because it's April 4 today! It’ll be the Bedrock version of the game, which has cross-play with Nintendo Switch, Windows 10, Gear VR, iOS and Android.
So get April 4 in your diary/scrawl it on your calendar/train your parrot to squawk it at random intervals/UPDATE: you don't need to do any of those things any more (not even the parrot one) because it's available with Xbox Game Pass from today! Click here to learn more about Xbox Game Pass!
