Minecraft's Java and Bedrock Editions are coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC

At Minecraft Live, Mojang announced that Minecraft's Java and Bedrock Editions would be coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC, arriving on November 2nd. This addition brings to Xbox Game Pass a hugely popular Microsoft title that was previously missing from PC's version of Xbox Game Pass, adding additional value to the service. 

The best thing about this addition is that it includes both versions of Minecraft, its popular Java version, and its cross-platform compatible Bedrock edition. 

On PC, Minecraft's original Java version remains popular due to its moddability. At the same time, the game's Bedrock edition caters to those who want to play Minecraft with gamers across PC and console platforms. On Xbox Game Pass, PC gamers can now get the best of both worlds. 

What remains to be seen is how easily Minecraft's Java version can be modded. Xbox Game Pass for PC titles are often less moddable than other versions of the same game, and it remains to be seen whether or not this is the case for Minecraft's Java Edition on Xbox Game Pass. Regardless, having access to both versions of the game is handy. 

Bringing Minecraft two PC versions to Xbox Game Pass for PC is good news for all subscribers to the service. As it stands, Xbox Game Pass for PC provides PC gamers with one of the best value gaming packages available today, and every new game addition is making the service even more worthwhile.
