    Minecraft Windows 10 bought, can I use Minecraft Java Edition


    Hi,

    I bought Minecraft Windows 10 Edition.

    Can I download and use Minecraft Java Edition from minecraft.net with this purchase, or do I need to pay again to get Java Edition?

    Thanks

    :)

    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?

    Xbox code for Minecraft WIN10 edition

    You can't use the Windows 10 code for Xbox.

    Xbox and Windows Minecraft are two separate products.

    If you have bought Minecraft Xbox One Edition digitally, you can upgrade to Xbox Minecraft for free.

    But owning Windows or Java Minecraft won't give you Xbox Minecraft. Sorry.

    Cant change my Minecraft skin or redeem windows 10

    Hi Airwreck14,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in the forums with this question. In regard to the Minecraft: Java edition, if you purchased Minecraft: Java Edition before October 19th, 2018, can get this edition for free by requesting it from Mojang. If you did
    not, then you would be required to purchase the Minecraft: Windows 10 edition in order to obtain that version of Minecraft & change the skin. Minecraft: Java and the Windows 10 version are 2 separately coded versions of the game.

    This article from Mojang Support can help further explain why this is happening:

    I hope that this helps out. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Will I get minecraft free on minecraft.net if I bought in on the windows store?

    As someone who has Minecraft for both Xbox One and Windows (both Win 10 version and the Java version) I can answer this.

    Poli5hesBubble: When the Windows 10 Edition (Windows Store Version) of the Minecraft entered public Beta in 2015/2016, owners of the pre-existing Java version were given a key to download and own the Windows 10 Edition (Windows Store Version) for free, as
    they already owned it for PC (in Java form). However, this does NOT work in reverse; if you bought the Windows 10 Edition (Windows Store Version), you will NOT be given a free copy of the Java version.

    KyleCBlanchard: Similar to the answer for Poli5hedBubble, if you own the Java version from Minecraft.net, you should be able to go to your Mojang account, log in and see a key that, once entered into the Windows Store or at redeem.microsoft.com, will allow
    you download the free copy of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition for free.
