Minecraft is free to play, in the browser, legally here. There is one big problem though: the available version is “Classic Minecraft”, which means that it is the version of the game that was first released in 2011. Gone are enemies, crafting, smelting and pretty much everything the rest you might find in a modern game update like the recently released Wild Update.
In classic Minecraft, the player has access to nine different building blocks and a relatively small area to play in. The game is in creative mode, so it’s basically just an officially licensed browser version for those looking to build some basic structures. It’s a far cry from what Minecraft has become, but still a good example of what the game is at its core and is capable of running on any computer.
Is there a Minecraft demo?
Minecraft: Java Edition has a demo available on the Minecraft website for those who want to try before they buy! It’s limited in two ways: It’s not multiplayer, and you can only spend so much time playing it. However, if that sounds like your thing, go right now because downloads are available! Demos are available for the Java edition and the Bedrock version for Windows 10, Android and PlayStation 4.
