Step 1: Install Xbox Insider Hub
The current update is in beta. If you want to turn on RTX on Minecraft, you need to be a beta tester beforehand. So, the first thing you need to do is to install Xbox Insider Hub.
Since it is a beta version and testing the new features might corrupt your Minecraft, you’d better back up all your Minecraft worlds before installing Xbox Insider Hub.
Then, you can follow this guide to install Xbox Insider Hub:
- Go to Microsoft Store.
- Search for Xbox Insider Hub.
- Click Get to download and install Xbox Insider Hub on your computer.
- Click Launch and then sign in with your account.
Step 2: Sign up for the Minecraft RTX Beta
- Open Xbox Insider Hub.
- Go to Insider content > Minecraft > Manage.
- Click the radial button that is next to Minecraft for Windows 10 RTX Beta.
- Click Done.
Then, you can launch Minecraft and wait until the update notification pops up.
Here, you should know that not all Minecraft versions can get the Minecraft RTX treatment. You need either the Bedrock Edition or Minecraft for Windows 10.
Step 3: Download Resources
- Launch Minecraft.
- Go to Marketplace > Worlds > All Worlds.
- Search for RTX and then select the world you want to get to download it.
Step 4: Create Your RTX World on Minecraft
You can free download and roam these worlds. But, unfortunately, you are not allowed to directly create your own Minecraft RTX world just yet. You need to do the job by downloading the resource packs that are provided by NVIDIA.
