You can now download Minecraft for Windows 10 for free, as long as you already have an original version of Minecraft.
Have you already upgraded to Windows 10? Surely you are still discovering the news, but you better not miss a gift that Microsoft and Mojang have prepared to celebrate the launch.
As we anticipate, Minecraft for Windows 10 is practically a new game, rewritten in native code instead of Java, which greatly improve performance.

Although at first glance it is the same Minecraft as always, this version for Windows 10 brings many new features.
The main one is multiplayer, which now goes through the Xbox Live platform and allows us play against console and mobile users in the future. Keep in mind that it is still a beta, so we may see bugs and receive more improvements.
To download Minecraft for Windows 10 for free we will need to have the original game associated with our Mojang account. First of all we have to log in to the Mojang website, and on the page of our account click on Redeem. We will be asked to log in to Microsoft to associate the account.
Then all we have to do is open the Windows 10 store and download the game, which will now appear as free.
