For those unaware, Minecraft Earth is an augmented reality mobile game that attempts to base the game in the real-world. The iconic franchise is already popular on other gaming platforms, and introducing it as an AR game makes it highly interesting.

It’s similar to Niantic’s Pokémon Go, however, Minecraft Earth will encourage more engagement in the community. Players have to explore the world to collect different kinds of materials that will enable them to build and place structures in the real world, viewable in-game. These structures could be their own while a group of players can collaborate to create a common one. Since this is online, anyone visiting these areas will be able to view the structures in their full glory.

As reported by IGN, the current early access version allows players to try their hands at ‘Adventures’. These are small worlds within the Minecraft Earth universe that have been procedurally generated and they will be time-limited. A smelting and crafting system has been introduced that will let players create and use tools with all the collected materials.
