Minecraft Free Trial Pops Up For Xbox One

If you are one of the seemingly few Xbox One owners that don’t have Minecraft, you can now give the game a spin for free. A trial version popped up on the Xbox Store and is available to download for free.

The trial version of Minecraft naturally comes with some limitations. Those that download it will only be able to play for about an hour. Additionally, users will not be able to create their own worlds. The tutorial world is all that is available and it is limited to a single player.

This followed a small list of changes to all versions of Minecraft released this morning. Title Update 33 fixes a handful of issues, such as Guardians not spawning and Redstone clocks getting stuck. The main thrust though is to add the Biome Settlers Skin Pack 1 for those that wish to purchase the DLC from the respective PlayStation and Xbox stores.

A Minecraft: Wii U Edition update is also planned for Friday, according to a 4J Studios Twitter announcement. This appears to bring that version of the game closer to the other platforms by adding the underwater temples and guardians that were released in the last big content update.
