However, I indicate to you, in the following lines, what are the system requirements to use this famous sandbox title.

Create an account

As mentioned above, to download the demo version of Minecraft Java Edition, you must first create an account. If you haven't done so yet, connect to the game's official website and click the button Log in, located at the top.

On the next screen, tap on the item Register one here, located at the bottom, then fill out the registration form, typing theemail address, choosing one Password and pointing to yours date of birth. Then put the check mark on the item I accept the collection of usage data and click Create account.


Now, you need to verify the email address provided: to do this, check your inbox and report the verification code, which you will find in the body of the email, in the appropriate text field required to confirm the registration, then pressing the button Verifica.


Once this is done, log in. You will then be offered to purchase the game at a price of € 23,95. If you want to download only the demo version, you don't have to pay anything: go directly to the next chapter and find out how to proceed.

If, on the other hand, you want to try the demo version of Minecraft Windows 10 Edition, you will first have to create a Microsoft account, which I told you about in this guide of mine.

Download the game

To download the demo of Minecraft Java Edition su Windows e MacOS, award-winning  you see in the upper right corner of the official website, then click on the item Try and download in the menu on the right and press the button Download, to download the installation client.

To install the game on Windows, start the downloaded package (by double clicking on it), press the button Next twice in a row, then click installYes (the latter will be prompted in the User Account Control window) and, to finish, click on Finish.

If you want to download the Minecraft demo for Windows 10, you can do it directly from Microsoft Store, locating the video game through the internal search engine and pressing the button Install evaluation version.

At this point, if you've never associated your Microsoft account with the Microsoft Store, you'll be prompted to do so. After logging in, the application will be downloaded and installed. Then press the button Plays, to start playing Minecraft.



Su Macinstead, open the file dmg downloaded, drag the executable into the folder Applications macOS, right-click on it and then press apri twice in a row, in order to bypass Apple's restrictions for applications from non-certified developers (the latter operation is only necessary at the first launch).

After installing the Minecraft client, wait for the automatic download of all the files necessary for the game to work. At the end, start playing by pressing the button Play the demo.

Minecraft Classic from browser

In addition to the solution that I proposed to you in the previous chapters, on PC you can play Minecraft Classic, an obsolete version of Minecraft (it is the one published in 2009), available for free and without the need for an account, directly from a web browser.

The only playable mode is one similar to that Creative, which allows you to destroy and build in a limited space of the Minecraft world, using the 32 blocks available. Its strong point, however, is that you can play with your friends (up to nine).

If you are interested in Minecraft Classic, what you need to do is launch the web browser and reach the official web page. Once this is done, he points to a nickname of your imagination and press the button Start, to start playing. If you want to invite some of your friends to your session, before starting the game, press the button Copy, to copy the invitation URL and share it with your friends.

Download Minecraft premium for free on smartphones and tablets

As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, the official Minecraft demo for Android and iOS has been removed from their respective stores. If you want, then, download Minecraft for free, you can only do it on Android, obtaining the APK file of an old version of the demo (although this may not do justice to the Mojang video game, as it is no longer updated).

Unfortunately, however, now even the demo is almost no longer available on any third-party website and, those you can find, could be modified versions that are risky for the security of your smartphone or tablet.

Therefore, you are somehow forced to purchase the game or download equally good alternatives. In this regard, I suggest you read my guide on how to download Minecraft PE for free.

Download Minecraft premium for free on console

You can also download the free Minecraft demo on console, after connecting the device to the Internet via the menu Settings (for example, on Xbox One you have to follow the path Network> Network Settings and press on the item Configure wireless rete). I have explained to you in detail how to do it in my tutorials dedicated to PS4 and Xbox One.

If you have already connected the console to the Internet, download the Minecraft demo by going to the default virtual store of the console you are using (for example, press the item Store which you can find on the Xbox One home screen, to open the Microsoft Store).

Therefore, identify Minecraft using the internal search engine and, after selecting your trial version, click on Install.

Free Minecraft Alternatives

Does the Minecraft demo last too short and would you like to continue playing it unlimitedly at no cost? I'm sorry, but unfortunately this is not possible.

However, if Minecraft meets your gaming needs but you don't want to pay to play it, I suggest you take a look at some free alternatives listed below, as these follow the same gameplay mechanics of the famous sandbox video game.

  • Kiloblocks Lite (Android / iOS)- is the free version of Kiloblocks, a video game for Android and iOS that follows the creative mode of Minecraft. There are no enemies to defeat because the only purpose is to build. The paid version allows you to save your creations and costs € 4,49.
  • Block Craft 3D (Android / iOS) - is another video game with graphics similar to that of Minecraft. It is available on Android and iOS and also caters to those who just want to build, without having to worry about enemies.
  • Twink (PC/Android) - is one of the most famous "clones" of Minecraft, a free and open source video game, as well as one of the best free alternatives to the latter, since it faithfully follows many of the experiences. It features a virtually infinite world and is available for free on Windows, macOS and Linux, as well as Android.
