MINECRAFT WINDOWS 10 EDITION is a Windows platform edition of the classic Bedrock Edition developed by Mojang Studios and Xbox Game Studios. The game was designed to run on Windows 10 PCs and tablets, as well as the HoloLens. Though the game was developed as a UWP app, the edition was not available for users using Windows 10 Mobile or Xbox One, so it was made separate from the cheaper releases of Bedrock Edition on Windows 10 Mobile and Xbox One which means that XBL achievements are not shared between these platforms and buying the game on one of these platforms does not get players the game on the others. The game was initially announced to the public on July 2015, and a beta version was released on July 2015 for US$9.99, on the Microsoft Store. Players who have purchased Java Edition prior to October 19, 2018, got Windows 10 Edition for free, and Windows 10 Edition left beta with the 1.0 release on December 19, 2016, and was priced at $26.95 on the Microsoft Store.


  • Gameplay: This edition of the game has the ability to play with up to seven players using Xbox Live and also others using Bedrock Edition through Realms Plus or local multiplayer with an update which was released shortly after the initial beta version. Also, some additional exclusive features also include multiple control schemes, player feedback feature, and giving the player the ability to record and share gameplay with Windows 10's built-in Game DVR. The Far Lands did not generate at all on the game, although they do on the regular Pocket Edition.

  • Development: The game went on to get major improvements prior to its official announcement on the Mojang blog, with the studios being added of various promotional videos of Minecraft running universally on the HoloLens that were shown by Microsoft. Also, and edition of Minecraft running on Windows 10 was released at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2015 convention, where Microsoft employees were seen playing the game on the HoloLens along with Lydia Winters on a Surface Pro.

  • Virtual Reality: The game was designed in virtual reality to allow players to able to use voice commands and hand gestures among other features of the headset to interact with the world. This feature made gamers possible to target specific areas of the map with voice commands by glimpsing towards them, for example looking directly at an object and players can use commands such as "lightning strike" would summon a lightning bolt relative to that area. Also, gamers got the ability to "markup" an area by looking at an object which creates a vertical beam of light similar to Beacons. These kinds of voice commands can also be used to change the view of the world and allows for following a player with modes such as "close up" or "overview" helps to change how close the camera is to the player. Additional features like hand gestures such as pinching can be used to zoom into a particular area, pan around the world, or to move the world vertically.
