Big news was released today for fans of the tremendously popular block crafting game, Minecraft, especially for those planning on a purchase for Xbox One. Microsoft is offering a rather tasty deal for players looking to upgrade from the Xbox 360 version.
We already knew that saves from the Xbox 360 version would transfer to Xbox One, but to sweeten the deal further, it was announced today that anyone who owns the 360 version of Minecraft can upgrade to next-gen tree punching for only $4.99. That’s a $15 discount.
I’m sure this news has you pretty anxious to get back into the staggering world of Minecraft, but you’re probably wondering when you’ll get the chance to enjoy the expanded experience of the Xbox One version. Well, we don’t have an exact date, but Microsoft has confirmed an August launch. We’ll keep you updated, but until then you may just want to clear your schedule for the entire month; just to be safe.
