    Windows died and won't boot on my 4 year old laptop, I had a copy of Minecraft Bedrock on it. Since I cannot get windows to boot anymore I bought another laptop. Do I have to pay for Minecraft bedrock edition again? If you would just give us physical media this wouldn't be an issue (like in the ole days, if your commuter died, you still had the installation media, now it seams you have to purchase another copy of the game. If that is the case I may just stay on JAVA version).

    :)

    Minecraft:Bedrock

    I know that but Bedrock edition is suppose to be free to those that own another edition as its the new standard minecraft. But when i try to get it on my PC it says i need to buy bedrock edition even though i have it on Xbox

    That and my skin packs arent working on bedrock which is a whole other anger point

    Free redeem code for Minecraft windows 10 edition

    I'm sorry that I wasn't clear. I'm in the same situation as the original poster. I purchased Minecraft back in 2013, so I own what is now called the Java Edition. I recently got a new laptop that is Windows 10; while I had many reservations about Windows
    10, the one thing I was looking forward to was being able to finally get the Windows 10 version of Minecraft, Bedrock, so that I could play cross platform with my younger brother, who plays on Xbox. Now, however, I can find no option to redeem my free copy
    of Minecraft Bedrock, despite have paid for Minecraft once already years ago.

    Minecraft not working after migration.

    Hey there!

    Just want to throw some information at you.

    So, there are 2 different types of Minecraft. You have the following:

    Java edition

    In the Java edition of Minecraft, you have to load up the launcher then prompt you with a login, you're also able to make custom servers with also a new folder and following their server creation guides. In the Java edition, you're able to do so much more than Bedrock Minecraft. Unfortunately, Java edition is not able to join windows Bedrock nor Xbox Minecraft edition / Mobile Minecraft Edition. You will need a Mojang account. This does not need a Microsoft account.

    Bedrock Edition

    In Bedrock Edition, you're able to get this on the Store or the Microsoft Minecraft.

    With this, you're not able to make a custom server, though you're able to make a normal multiplayer world. In this multiplayer world, you're able to join Xbox edition of Minecraft and the Mobile version of Minecraft.

    You do not need a Mojang account to register, you'll need a Microsoft account.

    -------

    I do not think you're able to transfer the 2 games, as they're both different. "Java / Bedrock."
    I hope this helps you.

    Can someone please answer a Minecraft Realms question?

    Hey Mr P

    Thank you for taking the time to reply to this thread.

    Bedrock is the version that is on consoles and mobile devices. So, yes, if you updated your console version you have the Bedrock version that is simple titled "Minecraft". Minecraft Windows 10 Edition is the only exception to this. Minecraft Windows
    10 Edition also uses the Bedrock engine. If you have something such as "Minecraft Xbox One Edition", this is not the up-to-date version.

    On PC [Bedrock and Java] you do not need to have a Xbox Live Gold subscription to play online.

    I hope this was able to clear up any confusion or turmoil this might have caused.
