Minecraft is nothing short of a pop culture phenomenon, having taken over the gaming world by storm in 2009. The game has progressed from being a fun little indie game that was enjoyed by a small but devoted fanbase to a full-fledged industry juggernaut.

The Minecraft franchise not only spawned fantastic spin-off games but it also gave rise to books that offer fascinating insight into the world of Minecraft and its lore. The game is available on a number of platforms but there are multiple versions in the market.

The most popular version of the game on PC is Minecraft: Java Edition. It differs significantly from the Bedrock version. The game can be downloaded straight from the official Minecraft website.

Minecraft: Java Edition can be downloaded straight from the source, which eliminates the possibility of security risks. Simply follow the steps below in order to download Minecraft: Java Edition on your PC:

  2. From the upper side of the page, select "Games".
  3. Select "Minecraft" from the options available.

Alternatively, players can also try the game in a demo for a limited time to see whether Minecraft is their cup of tea. The game is easily accessible and is fun right from the get-go.
