Ancient Java Players! You attention please!
Purchased Java before October 2018? Get Windows 10 version free!
Hello! Did you buy Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018? If you did, keep reading! If you didn’t, then this news isn’t really relevant to you, so you should probably go and read something else. May we suggest the most recent Taking Inventory? It’s about Lilac!
If you did buy Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018, then you might not be aware that you’re entitled to a FREE copy of the Windows 10 version. It’s an offer that we ended a couple of Octobers ago, but you still have some time to redeem your free copy if you bought Java Edition way back when! After Monday, April 20th, 2020, customers who purchased Minecraft Java Edition before October 19th, 2018 will no longer be able to redeem their free version of Minecraft for Windows 10 token code. Until then, players who bought Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018 can still receive a token for Minecraft for Windows 10.
This was originally a way for our PC Java players to get access to the Windows 10 beta version of Minecraft, and the Windows 10 version of the game left beta quite a while ago. You will still be able to buy Minecraft for Windows 10 at minecraft.net and at retail partners worldwide.
So to reiterate, if you bought Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018, then you can still claim your free Windows 10 version until April 20th, 2020 which also happens to be my birthday which also happens to not be relevant to this post which means I’m sorry I brought it up. Go claim your free Windows 10 version! Or put doing that off until April 19th. You do you!
