Minecraft Earth Release Date

Minecraft, the beloved game franchise, has declared that it will launch. They will start rolling out their Earth edition in October.

It will be an augmented reality game meant for usage on mobile phones. They first announced the launch in their Minecon event, which was held at the end of May 2019.

What Is the Status of Minecraft Earth As of Now?

Minecraft Earth will be free for everyone, and currently, they have made a closed beta version of the game which is available in certain cities, which include London, Tokyo, Seattle, and Stockholm.

The franchise mentioned that this game would help the players to connect it with the real world. Along with their friends, people can enjoy their creation in life-sized variants due to the augmented reality.

The franchise will test its waters by launching the mobile game in limited cities to see if people accept it or not. They will gradually add more cities and countries as the game starts to take off. The game will be available for the latest Android phones as well as for iPhones having iOS 10+ or more.

The game will have features such as “tappables” which lets them collect building resources from the real world. It can be compared to the collection of Pokémon characters in Pokémon GO.

After collecting the resources, the players can build structures on the “build plates,” which are like pre-built sets found in LEGO, and these plates can be earned or purchased. They can start with the given worlds and then deconstruct them to build new worlds.

Enemies can be defeated, and resources can be accessed from them.

The early access version will have limited features, and the franchise will keep on increasing them, and they will provide brand new things in the brand new year.
