Minecraft is an incredibly popular game, one that is played by over 90 million people every month. Recently, the title received a "Village & Pillage" update which adds a host of new features like foxes and raiders. While the game keeps on growing, it's understandable why the price has stayed the same due to the continued support. However, if you wanted to grab the game for less – on any platform – now's your chance.
Today, Minecraft Content Team Manager Marc Watson said, "For the... anniversary, Minecraft is up to 50 percent off on Windows 10, Java, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. We don't tend to ever discount the game, so if you've been waiting around, now's the time!" Minecraft usually costs $20, but it's not available for $10 across a number of devices.
Ever since Minecraft was purchased by Microsoft, it has become an even better experience due to tremendous support. It's even launched on new platforms like virtual reality headsets. We can't wait to see what the future holds for the game.
If you don't want to buy the game, you can always play it through Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service which gives you access to over a hundred games for a set fee. This includes titles like Just Cause 4, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and more.
