How to Get Free Minecraft Bedrock Edition [2021]

Minecraft for PC comes in two editions: Java and Bedrock.

Did you knew that?

Well, if you have been playing Minecraft for quite some time, you probably would have.

But still some Minecraft users are unaware about this or they don’t want to get into all this.

To date if you have only played Minecraft Java edition then now is the right time to try the minecraft Bedrock edition as I will be sharing.

But before that let me tell you the major differences between the two Minecraft editions

Let’s get started:

SUPPORTED DEVICES

System Java Edition Bedrock Edition
PC Yes Yes
Mac Yes No
Linux Yes No
Chromebooks No Only After Modification
iOS Devices No Yes
Android No Yes
Nintendo Switch No Yes
PlayStation No Yes
Xbox No Yes

MAJOR DIFFERENCES

CROSSPLAY SUPPORT

Minecraft Java Edition can only be used to play single player survival mode.

Even though you can still use it to play the game continuously for hours, but playing the bedrock edition with friends gives you completely different experience.

However, the only minor con with Minecraft Bedrock Edition is that you cannot play this game with the other user who is playing the Java edition of the game.

GRAPHICS AND PERFORMANCE

Both the Minecraft bedrock and Java, editions are created using different set of tools.

So it is quite common to expect since noticable changes in their visual appearance and overall performance

In short, if you are someone who has got high-end PC and loves to use some high-quality texture packs then go with the minecraft Java edition

But if you are someone who like to go portable everytime and uses laptop around then, Minecraft Bedrock edition is the most suitable for you.

HARDCORE MODE

After playing Minecraft in the normal single mode, it gets a bit boring.

As a competitive player, no one likes to win an easy game.

So, for that Mojang introduced, Hardcore mode for Minecraft Java Edition.

However, ever since the release of Minecraft Bedrock Edition, the same mode is absent on the platform.

Despite multiple claims Mahjong has failed to introduce the hardcore level on the Bedrock Edition.

If you can’t wait for God knows how long, I would recommend you to use hardcore add-on In Minecraft Bedrock Edition.

Even though it will give you hardcore level like experience, but it won’t be same as the one on Minecraft Java edition.

P.S. Hardcore mode is quite popular because of its sheer difficulty level. When your player dies in the game, it does not respond in the survival world again.
