Minecraft Earth, that Pokemon Go-like, is entering beta soon


Note that registering does not guarantee you access to the Minecraft Earth beta, as only a limited number of participants in certain locations will be let in - at least at first. The addition of Minecraft's building elements creates Minecraft Earth, a game that lets players build and explore their own AR creations. A trailer was presented to the public before, causing more people to get excited about the game. After a massive success of the world's first Augmented Reality game, Pokemon Go, the new Minecraft Earth game is now making its way to the technology world. Augmented reality games are fast becoming a gaming fad with technology paving the way for its realization.

The Minecraft world is just nearby. Those blocks can then be used to build structures on build plates (of course) that can be placed on any flat real-world surface.

You will need an iOS device running iOS10 or later, or an Android device running Android 7 or later, to play the Minecraft Earth beta. In this mode, players can find and collect blocks such as grass, fences, stones and so forth as well as discover and collect animals such as pigs and cows. The Android version will follow "soon" after that.

After completing these steps, the account will participate for a possibility to download Minecraft Earth during the closed beta. There is no definite date provided but definitely this year.

Microsoft had a really impressive demo for Minecraft Earth at Apple's WWDC conference in June, and this week, the company is officially opening up the closed beta for the new game. The connection or progress might get reset occasionally as it happens with Beta versions while testing and developing various features. If you don't take advantage of it, the devs will give your slot to other gamers.
