How do I get Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta for free?
If you're a long-time player of Minecraft, you probably already own the original PC/Mac Java version and have a Mojang account. Good news: you can redeem Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta for free if you purchased the Java version anytime in the past.
