After Microsoft stated that the Minecraft: Pocket Edition will not receive any updates in the future, a lot of rumors started building about the new Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows 10 Mobile. However, most of us expected it to come with the Creators Update for Windows 10 Mobile or maybe with the highly anticipated Surface Phone (you never know), for most obvious reasons like- Better performance, Xbox PlayAnywhere, etc. However, it looks like Microsoft has some other plans, because hey, Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows 10 Mobile is here!
Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows 10 Mobile includes the coveted Ender Update for mobile devices, includes a ton of Xbox Live achievements, and brought dedicated Realm support to Windows phones for the first time.
Our latest free update, The Boss Update, includes the Wither, ocean monuments, slash commands, and ADD-ONS. And don’t miss the Campfire Tales skin pack for mythical monsters, horrible hauntings, and other strange sightings this October! Explore randomly generated worlds and build amazing things from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. Play in creative mode with unlimited resources or mine deep into the world in survival mode, crafting weapons and armor to fend off the dangerous mobs. Craft, create and explore alone or with friends on mobile devices or Windows 10.
The game will be a free upgrade to those who already owned it on their Windows Phone 8.1. Minecraft: PE also closes the unification gap as it will receive the same updates as Windows 10 PC Edition. Need more? Minecraft: PE will support the Xbox S controller on your Windows 10 Mobile. And yes, it’s cross-platform! So, you can play with your friends on iOS and Android too. Best of all, the W10M version of Minecraft: PE will support Add-ons, just like the iOS or the Android version.
