can i still get free updates if i buy mincraft today?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hello i have been interested in buying mincraft for quite a while now but never got around to it. so today i went on the website and found out that today, its entering alpha and that people who buy it after today wont get the updates for free. but since it said "after today" does that mean i can still buy it today and get free updates???

It's entering beta sometime today. If it still says alpha on the minecraft homepage I would assume that you get the alpha license. I think it was like 9E during alpha so you can tell from the price whether you are buying alpha or not.

Just my thoughts.

You'll get the full version for free, I believe, but anything after that that adds content (not bug fixes or things like that) will be in the form of DLC if you bought it after it went into beta.

While typing this, the site changed into saying Beta (whilst the game entered beta hours ago, actually), so you will not get the DLC for free.

Could be wrong on the hows and whats, but you'll have to pay for extra things if you buy it from now on.
