Minecraft Receives Optimized Version On Windows 10

As expected at Microsoft's press conference at Gamescom, the company pitched Windows 10 to PC owners. While their pitch might not be news-worthy, Minecraft lead developer Jens Bergensten offered a more interesting announcement.: his team has been hard-at-work on a new version of Minecraft, optimizing the addictive game for Windows 10.

This new iteration of Minecraft has no set release date, but the beta is available now. For those gamers uninterested in buying a second copy of Minecraft, don't worry – if you've already purchased the title, you will receive a free copy of this new version.
