“Hey United States, we found your Minecraft Earth invite, it was behind the couch this whole time!” the game tweeted. “Welcome to early access!”
Players are able to embark on sharable adventures, working as a team to battle monsters and complete other challenges that help them earn rare resources and prosper in the game. Cobblestone, dirt, or sand are used to build structures. These resources are collected by mining from objects that are geolocated on the map. Minecrafters can then build the cubed fortresses of their dreams.
You can start your own Minecraft server, establish a clan, and split the server’s cost.
One thing to note: This is still an early access version. Players may encounter some bugs.
It’s also a pretty hefty design, meaning its usage of your phone’s data, camera, and location may potentially drain your battery faster than you’d like.
Still, if you’re a fan of Minecraft or AR, get ready to pack up your batteries and take to the streets to test out the newest experience.
