Microsoft announced that “Minecraft” will enter the next generation on Friday, 5th Sept. with the release of “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition” (PEGI rating 7+).

Starting this Friday, players can purchase and download “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition” as either a full price game for £15.99 or as an upgrade from “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” for just £3.99.*

With worlds up to 36 times larger than on Xbox 360, now there’s an even bigger canvas to create on. You can even transfer your favourite Xbox 360 worlds and content to the Xbox One Edition so you won’t lose your creations.

Whether you’re a veteran “Minecraft” player continuing your journey or a new member of the community, you’ll be able to kick off your weekend in style with “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition”.
