Minecraft: Xbox One Edition Owners Have Until November 30th To Upgrade to Bedrock for Free

By Heidi Nicholas,
Players who own the Xbox One edition of Minecraft have until the end of November to update to the Bedrock edition for free. The game's site clarifies that this availability ends on November 30th. The Bedrock version was initially released as the Better Together update in 2017, which allowed players to team up on multiplayer across Xbox One, iOS, Android, the Windows 10 version, Gear VR and the Switch.


To update, all players will need to do is log on to their Xbox profile on their console. Players are eligible for the update if they've played more than five hours in the last year, or bought any DLC at any point. Do either of these before the 30th November, and you'll get a 5x5 code through Xbox messaging. Mojang and Microsoft remind players that it could be a little wait to receive a code, since it might take a few weeks for their team to deal with all the redemption requests. Once updated, however, players will get the Aquatic update, along with the Village & Pillage update, and several upcoming updates too.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
