Minecraft offers two versions for Windows. The Java Edition version can be purchased from Mojang's website and costs $26,95. Also, a Windows 10 version is available for $29.99 through the Microsoft Store.
You must keep in mind that they are not the same edition: the Java edition is the classic desktop edition, while the Windows 10 edition is actually the Bedrock edition, the same one used on consoles and Android or iPhone mobiles. Before buying, it is best to think about the version you are interested in according to the game idea you have in mind: which edition do your friends play? Are you very interested in the modder movement or do you stick to the usual game system? Depending on the answers, you will have to choose between one or the other.
Prices are subject to change at any time. You may also be able to find discounts and occasional promotions that let you get the game cheaper or even more expensive versions that include worlds, additional packs, or even Minecoins, the in-game currency, to spend in your games.
You also have the option to play Minecraft Android on Windows using an emulator. The price of the Android version is $7,49, but we recommend the specific version for Windows where the game experience is optimized for this type of platform. No matter the version you choose, fun is guaranteed thanks to the infinite world and the infinite options offered by one of the best games of the moment.
