Minecraft coming to Xbox One in August

By  •  News

It’s official. Minecraft Xbox One Edition will be released in August for $19.99. In addition to “significantly bigger worlds” and better draw distances than the Xbox 360 version, Xbox One Edition will allow Xbox 360 Minecrafters to import their Xbox 360 saves, as well as most DLC skins and texture packs.

The upgrade path from Xbox 360 to Xbox One mirrors what we have seen with select titles on PS4: if you own the PS3 version of a game, you can upgrade to the PS4 edition for a small fee, usually $10. Minecraft Xbox One Edition takes a similar approach, offering users the option to upgrade for $4.99. This applies to both the Xbox Live Marketplace digital copy and the retail disc version. Sweetening the deal even further, players will have an entire year from the release date to upgrade to the Xbox One edition. Full details list is inside.
