  1. I purchased Minecraft for Windows 10 (bedrock), how do I get the Java version for free?


    Can't seem to find an answer online, so I am hoping I can get help here. I'd like to use the Java version exclusively and run my own servers with mods, etc... So, not knowing enough about this ecosystem I bought the Windows 10 version and have been enjoying
    it.

    However, since I already spent $30 for Minecraft (and the Switch version separately), I'd like to figure out how to get the Java version without paying any more $$$.

    Ideas?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Dan

    Minecraft JavaEdition

    I bought the Windows 10 version of Minecraft by mistake, but the one I wanted was the java edition.

    I saw that anyone who buys minecraft java edition is entitled to minecraft Windows 10. Is the reverse also true? Who buys minecraft windows 10 is entitled to minecraft java edition?

    If so, how do I access the java edition version at no additional cost?

    why is my xbox 360 minecraft not getting any updates past the llama and llama man?

    There are several different versions of minecraft. Minecraft: Java edition is PC only and can only crossplay with Java players (mac, Lenox, PC) The minecraft that doesnt have a version next to it is the play together version or more commonly called bedrock.
    Bedrock is the version that can be played across mobile, console, and PC. There are also editions that are made specifically for most consoles and even a stand alone mobile version. Examples would be Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, Minecraft: Pocket Edition.
    These do not work with Bedrock which is just called Minecraft. Java is the most updated version of minecraft while bedrock would be right behind that one. The others I'm really not sure how often they update them if at all. Each edition of Minecraft has to
    be purchased separately. I happen to own both Minecraft: Xbox one edition and Minecraft since they released at separate times. I also have Java on my PC. As for your issue they do not have a Bedrock version on the 360.

    When can java Minecraft owners start getting windows 10 codes again?

    try the Microsoft store. Your purchases will show up there. Bedrock and windows 10 versions were separate purchases from the java version.

    Using Mojang Minecraft account for Microsoft Minecraft.

    You may have to.

    The Minecraft.net version of Minecraft is the 'Java' version while the Microsoft/Windows 10 version that runs on console, mobile and well... Windows, is the Bedrock version. As far as I am aware cross-play between console, mobile, and Windows PC is only
    for that Bedrock version while the Java version is Mojang's 'original' and more frequently supported version (for lack of better terms.)

    Here are some places to read about that.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/bkxi31/java_vs_bedrock_what_are_the_differences/

    Its highly unlikely you'd be entitled to a Bedrock copy of the game but, considering you own the Java port through Minecarft.net... Mojang support may be able to help you or give you a discount or something if you inquire about it but that's seriously a
    stretch if I am being honest.

    Minecraft:Bedrock

    Java is the original release of Minecraft. Xbox One Edition will no longer be updated seeing as they released the Bedrock version for Xbox and Windows 10 and other platforms.
