In addition to the over 100 titles already available — including Ori and the Blind Forest, Forza Horizon 4, and Sea of Thieves — the Xbox Game Pass membership is now including full access to Minecraft Bedrock. This version of the game features cross-play with Windows 10, Android, Gear VR, and Nintendo Switch.

After a rather long wait, Minecraft is finally available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. Last week, this popular title joined those over 100 games already available via this service. The list of Xbox Game Pass titles already includes popular games like Fallout 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Halo 5: Guardians, Gears of War 4, and many others. 

The Minecraft version available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers is Bedrock, which sports cross-play with a wide range of platforms: Windows 10 PCs, Gear VR virtual reality head-mounted display mounts, iOS-driven devices, Nintendo Switch consoles, as well as Android slates and handsets. Minecraft has recently received an update that filled its seas with new life and will soon get its biggest expansion yet, namely Village and Pillage.

Those new to Minecraft can find out more about the game buy checking out this page. On the other hand, the gamers who have been playing Minecraft for a while will now be able to enjoy this title with their friends who are Xbox Game Pass members.

The first Xbox Game Pass month can be enjoyed for a mere US$1. After its end, the cost of the subscription goes up to US$9.99 — still a pretty good deal for those who are serious about Xbox gaming.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
