The Xbox One Edition of Minecraft will finally be released this Friday, September 5, Microsoft has announced.

Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will set buyers back $19.99, but owners of the Xbox 360 Edition of the game can upgrade to the Xbox One version for just $4.99 via the Xbox Games Store. Later this month, select retailers will start selling a Digital Download Code for the game, and a disc release will be on retail store shelves this holiday.

All previous DLC purchased on Xbox 360 can be transferred over to the Xbox One version, and, as previously confirmed, all world saves can also be moved over.

On Xbox One the game will feature enhanced draw distances and worlds that are 36 times bigger than on Xbox 360.

A PlayStation 4 version of the game is also set to release soon.
