It’s a few months since we first heard about Minecraft Earth, the augmented reality version of Mojang’s game that makes the actual world a playscape filled with your blocky creations. It promised a beta launch of the game would arrive this summer, and now, together with a new trailer, the company states it will launch on iOS within the next two weeks, with Android following “soon thereafter.”
The iOS-first launch is not shocking after we received our first peek at live gameplay throughout WWDC last month. Whereas this new trailer has loads of data on how you will play the game, gamers could wish to revisit the Apple demo to get more feel for what it will prefer to share a digital Minecraft world with their friends that overlay the actual one.
To be one of many first gamers with access, you’ll need to sign up for the free gam (you may want a tool operating at least iOS 10 or Android 7 to take part, according to the FAQ). Access is being restricted whereas they work out the load on the game’s servers. However, you will need to be active to stay in it — if you do not play for seven days, then another person will get your slot. You may want a Microsoft or Xbox Live account to register, however as soon as you have signed up there’s nothing left to do but wait, and prepare to build.
