A very popular version of the game of Mojang will soon be affected by a slight change . Indeed, Minecraft Java Edition will soon require its users to go through a Microsoft account to play.
Minecraft Java Edition is extremely popular version with gamers. Last year, Microsoft announced that this edition has been downloaded over 30 million times. So, when a change happens, we must take the lead. This is what Mojang is doing today by formalizing information that has been hovering for a while.
Indeed, from this fall, all new players who purchase the Java Edition of the cubic game will be required to sign in to a Microsoft account before starting a game. On their side, regulars will be invited to do the same from 2021. This migration will be done in several waves to avoid technical bugs. But why such a decision ? The Swedish studio explained ...
In an FAQ, Mojang explains that signing into a Microsoft account will provide various benefits. So, players will be able to use two-factor authentication, take advantage of enhanced parental controls and block chat messages as well as very specific invitations. Moreover, this will allow the different games of the Minecraft license to be linked to a single account.
Note that players will keep their username and all their skins. They will even receive a unique cape as a reward. Other small bonuses should be distributed to thank the community for this change. In short, in its content, Minecraft Java Edition won't budge one iota.
