Since Microsoft acquired Mojang, best known for Minecraft, it didn’t surprise anyone when the company created a version of Minecraft just for Windows 10. It has been about a week since Windows 10 was released to the public which can now get to playing this popular game on their freshly updated machines. During Microsoft’s Gamescom keynote today Mojang announced that new features will be added to Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition beta later this year in the fall.


Mojang also revealed that ever since Windows 10 was released on July 29th Minecraft players have traveled over 826 million meters in the game, that’s about 5.1 million miles for those who don’t use the Metric system.It says this is equivalent to circling the earth 20 times.

Windows 10 users who already own Minecraft for PC can play the Windows 10 Edition for free, they are also able to keep playing in the worlds created on the original PC Java version.Microsoft says that the title runs better when it’s played on a “newly-upgraded Windows 10 machine.”

The Windows 10 Edition of Minecraft is currently available in beta only and a formal release date is yet to be announced. Mojang didn’t go into much detail about the new features, only that they will be released this fall.
