Java And Bedrock Editions Merge, Creating One Minecraft To Rule All

The huge popularity of Minecraft was not without problems, one of which was that the original game was written in Java. This is still the version that some players prefer, for a laundry list of reasons. However, for a long time, the 'standard' edition of the game has been the Bedrock edition that was changed to simply 'Minecraft' at the end of 2017.


Confused? lalalalal The differences are very important to players who play Minecraft and the most important being that it's easier to modify the Java edition. Whatever way you play the game, there was one major drawback on PC as you had to buy both versions separately. Mojang and Microsoft have announced that the two versions of the game that are widely considered to be the most successful ever, will now be combined into Minecraft: Java & Bedrock Edition (PC) from the 7th of June, which is tomorrow.


That's some creative naming right there. This allows purchasers to access both versions of Minecraft and is the "only version of vanilla Minecraft on Windows PC." You can cross-play with Java or Bedrock players by simply opening the version that your friends are currently playing.


Players who already own one of the versions of the game will be upgraded to the duo-pack edition. Mojang states that it could take some time to be released however, all players of the game should notice the new version appears automatically in their Minecraft Launcher over the next few days.


Mojang stated that Java and Bedrock will remain separate games, each with their own distinct features. "The only difference is that now you get both games by default when you buy Minecraft for Windows PC. You can play both through one launcher."


Over the years, the division between versions has caused controversy. Java players were upset when Microsoft demanded that they create accounts with Microsoft account. This change appears to make sense and be advantageous for players.


In terms of Minecraft itself, it's in excellent health, with players currently waiting for the massive Wilds update (opens in new tab). It is still active in the real world, with most recently being used for Macron's reelection campaign (opens new tab). I wonder how many people can vote on that server. And , of course, no matter what edition they're using, players continue to create the most amazing of visual effects in this chaotic and endlessly creative world (opens in a new tab).
