Minecraft Earth: block building game moves into the real world

Minecraft Earth

Microsoft says a "limited beta" will begin in the summer, but hasn't yet indicated when the public launch will happen. Earth is special, as it takes place in a very special world - our world - and aims to invoke the same exploration fantasy as the original PC game. However, they emphasized that they didn't want it to be a "pay to win" game, and that Minecraft Earth doesn't need to be a "revenue-first" title. "We have levels that unlock content, and as you go up in levels, you'll get access to more and more content and more build plates", explained Olafsson. This is a bit hard to explain in words, but keep in mind that everything written here can be seen by other players and they can interact with it.

Microsoft may believe it has made augmented reality's killer app: the just-announced Minecraft Earth for iOS and Android. Unlike GO, these "tapables" are placed randomly around you and there should always be at least two nearby. You can walk to locations or buildings on the map and tap them to mine for building blocks.

Collaborating: You can team up with other Minecraft Earth players to craft together! All it takes is you, your phone, and your imagination.

Minecraft is a legendary crafting survival game from Mojang and Microsoft, where players can build literally anything they can imagine.

Minecraft is a household name, and its players have a "visceral connection" to the game, said Minecraft Executive Producer Jesse Merriam. Any lake can be fished from, while any tree in any park can be converted into wood. But obviously, this is a massive achievement for Mojang and Microsoft, and many congratulations are due to them. You can also stumble across Adventures, which overlay a full Minecraft-like area with resources to collect and mobs to dispatch.

Are Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas Still Friends?
My, how things have changed since then! It's still a trip to look back and reminisce on what was going on back in 2008. Swift explained: "There's one [song] that's about that guy, but that guy's not in my life anymore, unfortunately".

Adventures are designed for multiple players and are played in real time, while seeing other players, shared mobs and resources in real time!

Minecraft Earth has clear potential to be a big deal for Microsoft, but more importantly for Minecraft fans, exploding from its pixellated roots into the real world.
