Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition is a special version of Minecraft, published on PC, more precisely on Windows 10. The general premises are the same as in the popular original title by Mojang, but it is not based on the PC edition (java). Instead, the creators built the title on Minecraft: Pocket Edition. Therefore, this game is neither as extensive as the original, nor compatible with it. However, it features cross-play between the mobile version and Windows 10 Edition players. Additionally, the players who bought the Java version of Minecraft can get this title for free.

What is noteworthy, this production makes use of Xbox Live, so during gameplay, the players can unlock achievements assigned to their accounts.

Mechanics

Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition puts you in a procedurally-generated world built of voxels, in which you can literally do whatever you like. In the Survival mode, you try to stay alive, while having nothing at the beginning. First, you need to gather resources necessary for creating your first tools and building simple shelters. Later, you gain access to more advanced elements with which you can build fortresses, mines, weapons, traps, etc. Naturally, you can let your imagination run wild in the Creative Mode which features unlimited access to resources, so you can launch more complex projects, construct ingenious machines, or even build whole cities.

Misc.

The beta version was published in July 2015, and was much cheaper than the original. With the release of 1.0 version, the price went up.
