To proceed, click on the button first at the top right and then, in the displayed menu, press on the item Try and download.

Minecraft Classic from browser

You should know that, to coincide with the tenth anniversary of Minecraft, a version of this video game that can be used via any PC web browser, completely free of charge, has been published by the developer Mojang. This version of Minecraft, defined Classic, is the first version of the video game that came out in 2009, defined by Mojang itself as a nostalgic edition for fans.

For this reason, the gaming experience is nothing like the current one. In fact, the game world, only available in a similar mode to that Creative, is limited and you have only 32 different blocks to use. Furthermore, it is possible to invite up to nine friends, sharing the appropriate link that is generated during the creation of the game map, with which you can interact thanks to an integrated chat system.

If you are interested in playing Minecraft Classic, what you need to do is reach its official webpage and, on the main screen, type a nickname of your imagination, using the appropriate text box. Via the button Copy, located a little further up, you can instantly copy the session link to share it with your friends and allow them to join you. At this point, press the button Home, to start playing Minecraft Classic for free.

Minecraft free per smartphone e tablet

Vuoi giocare a Minecraft for free on smartphones and tablets, you must keep in mind that it is not possible to download the free demo from the Android Play Store or the iOS App Store, as this has been removed. What you can do is buy Minecraft directly at a price of € 6,99 for the Android version or € 7,99 for the iOS version.

If, however, you want to play Minecraft for free on your smartphone or tablet, what you can do is download one of the many free alternatives that I propose below.

  • Minetest - it is a free and open source game inspired by Minecraft which is available for Windows, macOS and Linux. It is one of the best free alternatives to Minecraft and is also available in a mobile version, but only on Android. It is a very complete title, since it also supports online multiplayer mode and its playing area is almost boundless.
  • Kiloblocks Lite - is the free version of Kiloblocks and is one of the most popular Minecraft alternatives, available for Android and iOS. It is a game inspired by the creative mode of the Mojang title, so there are no enemies to defeat, you can only build. The paid version costs € 4,49 and also allows you to save your progress.
  • Block Craft 3D - is a free game for Android and iOS with 3D graphics similar to that of Minecraft; its purpose is to build objects and buildings to grow your virtual village.

If you would like to know more about the version of Minecraft for mobile devices with Android or iOS or the free alternatives, I recommend that you consult these topics in my guide on how to download Minecraft Pocket Edition for free.

Minecraft for free from the console

If you have a video game console, you will be interested to know that you can download the free Minecraft demo through it as well. To do this, you must first make sure that the device has previously been connected to the internet.

For example, if you own one Xbox One go to the menu Network> Network Settings and press on the item Configure wireless rete, to make the console connect via Wi-Fi. Otherwise, connect the console to the internet via an Ethernet cable. In case you need help, please refer to my tutorials dedicated to connecting the PS4 and Xbox One to the Internet.
