Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition is an adaptation of Pocket Edition made to run on Windows 10 using the Universal Windows Platform, developed by Microsoft Studios. It is capable of running on virtual reality devices such as the Microsoft HoloLens, and has the same features as in Pocket Edition with a few other additions.
Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition was announced on 4 July 2015 and a beta version was released on 29 July 2015 for US$9.99 on the Windows Store. People who have purchased the Java edition of Minecraft can get the Windows 10 Edition for free. It left beta with the 1.0 release on December 19, 2016 and now costs US$26.95.
As well as the features existing in Pocket Edition, the Windows 10 Edition also has the ability to play with up to seven players using Xbox Live and also others using Pocket Edition, through Realms or local multiplayer. Some other exclusive features include: multiple control schemes, a player feedback feature, and the ability to record share gameplay with the Windows 10's built-in GameDVR. As of now, the Windows 10 Edition has a marketplace just like the other Bedrock Edition platforms, albeit with some differences.
When it first came out, the W10E was highly criticized for not allowing anything to work, besides boats. Now, it has evolved in to something more fun than the original.
