Minecraft has been in the news lately for a number of reasons. Microsoft is partnering with NVIDIA to support radiation monitoring, and another augmented reality game called Minecraft Earth is being tested worldwide. However, the original numbers are still climbing.
There are two versions of Minecraft available on the Xbox One. One is an old, non-Bedrock release, while the other supports cross-play between computers and even the Nintendo Switch, and is the latest and greatest release. Previously, those who owned the Bedrock version could upgrade to Bedrock at any time, but it seems the timer has started to count down.
Recently, Tom Stone wrote on the Minecraft website that "existing Minecraft: Xbox One Edition players now have until November 30, 2019 to use their free update to the Bedrock version." If you have not upgraded, be sure to do so before this promotion expires.
Just look for Minecraft on your Xbox One. The Bedrock edition should have a new cover so it's easy to spot. The price should be free, so just click on it and install it. This way you will own a copy of the game even though it is free.
