The Minecraft RTX beta has just started, and Mojang has talked about the way players can join. Mojang is currently testing a new version of Minecraft on Windows 10 that uses RTX. RTX wants to come with real-time ray tracing for Minecraft. The latest version of Minecraft is now available to download, but keep in mind that there are also some limitations.
Not everyone will be able to join the new beta program. Also, it is not available for PS4 or Xbox One. You will also need Minecraft for Windows 10, and then, you’ll need to join the beta. There are also some requirements for your PC: minimum spec GPU of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, CPU of Intel Core i5 or equivalent, and 8GB+ RAM.
Mojang stated: Please be aware that this beta, like every beta, is a work in progress. Things may go wrong, be a bit unstable, not available in all parts of the game (such as the Nether or the End), or may not match gameplay rules – but that’s part of the process.”
You will need to keep in mind that the worlds opened on beta builds cannot be re-opened on the previous builds. Always make a copy of your worlds before opening them in beta. Also, beta players can only connect to other players on the same beta build. They do not have access to Realms or Partnered Servers while on the beta.
So how can I get Minecraft in Beta?
In order to get access to it, make sure you follow these steps:
First of all, Install the Xbox Insider Hub app on your PC. then, inside the app, click on the open box icon from the left. On the content screen, you will see a beta available for Minecraft for Windows 10. Click on it. Then click Join, at the bottom of the screen. You will then see three radio buttons. One is for Minecraft RTX Beta, one for Minecraft Beta, one for Unenroll. You will need to choose Minecraft RTX Beta, then click Done.
