Minecraft enters beta, now version 1.0

The much loved Minecraft has now moved past alpha stages and into Beta as version 1.0. The developers promise to polish the game further and provide content. They will first create a more stable API and proper modding support. This should bring some more creativity into the game like our article earlier this year about the guy who made the 1:1 scale model of the Starship Enterprise D.

Minecraft has exploded in popularity since its release in 2009 and now has sold over 850,000 copies worldwide. Version 1.0 of the game will cost 14.95€ Euro’s or approximately $20 us dollars. The developers have also promised that if you purchased the game during Alpha you will get all future updates free of charge. Well isn’t that nice of them.
