Minecraft is the best-selling game in history. Turns 11 years and exceeds 200 million units

Last weekend it was 11 years since the launch of Minecraft (the alpha version that was available to the public) and the game created by Markus “Notch” Persson and Mojang, has exceeded 200 million units sold worldwide , which reinforces its position as the best-selling video game of all time . Minecraft is currently available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC and mobile devices iOS and Android, and we already have confirmation that the game will reach the next generation of consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X) thanks to the version that incorporates lighting by Ray Tracing.

Only in the last year, Minecraft has sold more than 24 million units . in addition to the educational licenses of the game, and to celebrate it Microsoft Studios has changed the name of the development team (it is renamed Mojang Studios and debuts a new logo). What has been the secret to success? Undoubtedly, the number of possibilities it allows, both in survival mode, in which we have to face the creatures that attack us at night (zombies, creepers, spider witches …) while obtaining resources and improving our equipment, such as in the creative mode, which allows us to unleash the imagination with infinity of blocks.

We can even play Minecraft for free from our browser, without the need for downloads. To enjoy Minecraft we only need a computer and an Internet connection. Of course, it should be noted that this is the original 2009 version of the Mojang game , without the improvements and new content of the later versions.Playing Minecraft Classic completely free of charge is very simple. We just have to access the following link , which will take us to a loading screen to play the PC title. Since it runs through the same browser, it is not possible to save the game, so every time we start the page we will have to start from scratch.
