Minecraft Earth is now available in the many countries of the world. For iOS and Android mobile devices compatible with augmented reality. The new video game based on the virtualized pixel world of Minecraft is already a reality in Spain recently.
Many others have already remarked a few weeks ago that a beta phase of this game was running online. It would not take long to officially launch. It was released in October in some countries and has finally touched ours. As of current time, if you have an AR compatible mobile (Augmented Reality) you can download it now.
Microsoft, owner of the Minecraft developer reported a few days ago that it is now available for download in the App Store, but in early access format. It is a predefined version, after the beta phase. But without having all its functions one hundred percent. The final version will be available worldwide before the end of the year 2019.
The game is called Free-to-Play, that is free but with integrated purchases. You must have a free Microsoft account to login, choose your character. Then you can now roam freely through the Minecraft universe. The novelty of this version “Earth”, is that the game uses the GPS of the mobile. And it also helped with the camera, combines virtual scenarios with real images, similar to the system used by Pokémon Go.
You need a free and flat space, such as a table or the floor of a room. And pointing the camera at it, you can create 3D maps and view the construction from any angle. It’s like creating a block scenario, Lego type, but virtual. A virtual Exim Castles, come on.
This “almost” definitive version brings new functions that the beta phase did not have, such as the “adventures”. You have to make a construction in a certain time, with the help of other players. New creatures have also been added, you can melt minerals into gold bars, etc.
If we take into account the mass of gamers hooked on Minecraft for years, combined with the spectacular reality augmented. The game will be a success. I’m looking forward to my school boy to give him the news.
