Hello,

Was wondering if anyone has got or played this yet? It has LAN functionality and no java ;)

If you've got MC, you've got a win10 edition key waiting for you so you might as well claim it if you haven't already. I believe the java version is still ahead of the non-java one.

What the hell? They're rewriting it for non-java?

yes they are and have been planning to for some time. they are not stopping work on the java version though. just pushing more on the pocket/win10 edition. once thats up to date with the java version will will replace it. They expect it will be at least a year though if not 2

They had to write it for platforms that don't allow java. As much as MC is huge on PC, it's also huge on console/mobile.
