Minecraft is the sandbox strategy game responsible for many classes skipped by students, many tense moments, many happy moments, and also for hundreds of thousands of hours of gameplay. It couldn’t be otherwise, considering that Minecraft is in the top three best selling games of all time.
Being available for a variety of platforms, Minecraft has a price that is not fixed at all. But thanks to the God of Gaming, if there is one, there are still ways to get yourself Minecraft for free.
Get the demo version
Getting the demo version is a good idea for testing out what Minecraft can do for you before deciding to buy the full version. For doing so, it’s easy as a walk in the park. Just create yourself an account on the official website of Minecraft, then download the game from the same address.
As for the usual consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it’s a lot easier to play the demo version of Minecraft on them. If you own either one of these gaming machines, you just have to search for Minecraft within their official stores. Unfortunately, there’s no known possibility of playing the full version of the game for free. But getting the demo is also good enough.
For those who don’t know yet anything about Minecraft, the following words from Wikipedia should shed some light into the mystery:
“Minecraft is a sandbox video game developed by Mojang. Minecraft was created by Markus “Notch” Persson in the Java programming language and was released as a public alpha for personal computers in 2009 before officially releasing in November 2011, with Jens Bergensten taking over development around then. It has since been ported to various platforms and is the best-selling video game of all time, with over 180 million copies sold across all platforms and over 112 million monthly active players by 2019.”
Besides PC, Mac, and consoles, Minecraft is also available for Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and more.
