Mojang has been keeping fans on their toes with surprising Minecraft announcements this whole month. Last week, the video game developers announced the release of Minecraft for China. But, it doesn’t end there.
Today, thanks to CNET, we came across Mojang’s official beta release of Minecraft designed for educational purposes. That’s right. A game for children to experience and improve their creativity and educational skills. Sounds absurd? Before parents start to worry, note that it won’t be their decision to make, as developers have created the game primarily for schools.
We believe this could possibly be the right move by Mojang as fans would agree that the game has been known for improving the creativity of both adults and teenagers. According to Thurrott, the beta version will be available on Wednesday. If you are a die-hard Minecraft fan and would like test it out, @Walkingcat has shared a link for fans to enjoy the beta (tweet below).
