If you thought Minecraft couldn’t get more accessible, Microsoft is here to prove there are always more ways to play. The company is teaming up with Mojang to release an Early Access version of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on Chromebooks.

The Bedrock Edition will be available on Chromebook laptops, but there are some minimum requirements to play.

The Early Access version is only available for purchase from the Google Play Store if you meet the minimum requirements, and there are three purchase options currently available:

    • This version includes both the Chromebook and Android version of Minecraft.
