Now, you don’t need me to tell you how popular Minecraft is. Ever since it’s release way back in November 2011, it’s changed quite a lot. The main changes being the platforms it is now available on. With Microsoft now being the company behind all future Minecraft developments, it’s no surprise that a Windows Edition is set to be released very soon.

Following Microsoft’s acquisition of Mojang for US$2.5 billion back in November 2014, just 3 years after the initial release, it should come as no surprise that the PC giant is creating a Windows 10 Edition for use with it’s new OS.

The Minecraft: Windows 10 Beta version, which will be free for current PC version owners, is set to enter beta stages on July 29, alongside the launch of the new Windows 10 OS.

Since the Mojang buyout Microsoft have pushed the game quite a lot, and it is now currently available on a wide range of platforms including Windows, Mac, Xbox 360 / One, Windows Phone, iOS, Android, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita.

As well as these platforms, a version of the popular game is currently being developer for use with the HoloLens augmented reality headset.

It should be a good few months in the world of Minecraft if all goes according to plan!
