Last month, Microsoft announced Minecraft Earth, its first mobile AR game. Minecraft Earth allows you to craft beautiful Minecraft creations in your phone, and harness the power of augmented reality to bring them to life. Last week, Microsoft opened up the beta registration process for Minecraft Earth. During the keynote at Inspire partner conference yesterday, Microsoft demoed the Minecraft Earth experience once again and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was part of the demo. Check it out below.
Highlights of Minecraft Earth:
- Collecting: Minecraft Earth features many of the mobs that Minecraft players know and love (and potentially hate), along with new ones. The more you play, the higher the chance of discovering unique variants and using them to populate your builds.
- Exploring: You can explore the world around you to gather resources, take on challenges, and experience a whole new blocky world.
- Collaborating: You can team up with other Minecraft Earth players to craft together! You know what they say – it takes a village to craft a whole bunch of Minecraft creations, or something like that.
- Surviving: You can battle Minecraft mobs in real life! Just make sure you don’t stand too close to the Creepers.
You can head over to the official Minecraft Earth page now to sign up for the beta program.
