Minecraft Earth Coming to iOS & Android in October 2019
We don’t have to wait much longer as Minecraft Earth is set to rollout in the coming weeks for iOS and Android. The augmented reality game will be released in October to select countries, although we don’t have details on which countries are going to see the game first. The early access version of the game being only a couple weeks away is a great sign. The announcement was made initially over Twitter and this rollout will include various countries around the world.
We’ve told you a little bit about Minecraft Earth previously, as it’s the new Minecraft game that will focus on augmented reality. There will be many of the core features you’ve come to know and love from Minecraft available in the new Minecraft Earth game. It’s an integration of the augmented reality but keeps a lot of the core features and functions the same. The game play will also be very similar to the traditional Minecraft, but it uses real-world structures to help you build. You will be able to explore worlds and also collect variants.
Minecraft Earth Game Details & Features
You will be able to collect variants in this game and then use these variants to help you build. There are challenges in the game and you’ll be able to collect resources too. Some of the best Minecraft features and abilities can be found in this game including the ability to collect items, explore your world, and also try to survive in the world.
You can go out on various adventures in Minecraft Earth that utilize real-world surroundings. There will be mobs, which are called Tappables. You also will be able to go outside into the real world to collect various chests and blocks. If you head outside you will notice that the sidewalk has turned into a mine, and you may even find something cool like diamonds right underneath you. There might be skeletons hidden in the trees that are in your nearby park or other location. You have to fight off mobs, collect resources, and also earn experience points to help you progress in the game.
What Else Can You do in Minecraft Earth?
There are so many things you can do in the augmented reality game Minecraft Earth. You will be able to use Build Plates to build your very own creations which are permanent. The Build Plates can be placed anywhere you want, including on the ground so that you will be able to go outside and see the creation in a life-sized version. You also can choose to just build in the tabletop-sized small environments if that’s more your thing.
In Minecraft Earth, you’ll also love the ability to have a collaborative multiplayer experience. As long as the other person has Minecraft Earth on their device and also has a device that can utilize augmented reality, you can play with them. You all can join sessions together and run around in the world, which is a pretty cool part of the game.
