There is a free trial available for the Java and Bedrock versions of the game for people who wish to try the many hours of fun that Minecraft can provide but are hesitant to pay the money for it.
You may access links on the official website that will take you to the download sites for the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft, which is available for Windows PS3/4/5, PS Vita, and Android.
An extra set of links is accessible further down on the same page for the Java Edition, which is only available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
These links have detailed instructions on how to download and install each version.
Minecraft Free Trial
There is no blocked material that will be unavailable during the free trial, regardless of the Minecraft Edition or your platform, and you may play the whole game.
You have a time restriction placed once the trial starts to make sure this isn’t taken advantage of. The time restriction varies depending on the platform, although it often ranges between 90 and 100 minutes, or around 5 in-game days.
Although the time limit may be irritating, you have more than enough time to explore the game’s features and get comfortable with the gameplay loop if you’re not sure you’ll like it.
This is the best method to play a bit of Minecraft and make sure you want to purchase it on your favourite platform before you invest any money.
Minecraft Creative mode
You can now play the original build of Minecraft’s creative mode in a browser for free thanks to Mojang, after they celebrated the game’s 10th anniversary in 2019.
There are only 32 blocks available to utilise in this version, which means that all of the problems that were present in the previous version of that mode are also present.
Additionally, because it is browser-based, closing the browser prevents you from saving your builds.
You may copy the URL that is created when a world is generated and share it with up to nine others so that you can all play together.
You may access this free version of Minecraft at classic.minecraft.net, whether you desire a journey down memory lane or just want to try it.
Xbox and PC
Xbox and PC users with an Xbox Game Pass membership may play Minecraft “free” as part of their subscription; nevertheless, you’ll need to keep paying the subscription to maintain your access to the game.
Installing Minecraft: Java & Bedrock Edition through the Microsoft Store website or the Xbox app for PC will allow you to play the game with Game Pass. Each individual version is then installable and playable using the Minecraft launcher.
If you currently have a valid Game Pass Ultimate or Game Pass for Console subscription, Xbox users may install Minecraft on their consoles.
