In case you missed it, Minecraft Earth early access is now available in 10 countries! Minecraft Earth was announced on Minecraft's 10th anniversary this year and it's finally here!



WHAT IS THIS SORCERY?!
Minecraft Earth is an augmented reality (AR) game for your mobile device, letting you bring Minecraft into the real world! Create, Collect, Collaborate and Explore like never before through the lens of your phone or tablet!




CREATE
You can build and create by yourself or with friends, from anything like a small house to a large statue! With Minecraft Earth, you're able to build practically anywhere. Your front lawn, your dining room table, your teacher's desk... you get the idea!



COLLECT
Minecraft Earth features a bunch of NEW mobs along with many of the mobs you're familiar with! You'll also have the opportunity to breed unique variants over time, and use them to populate your builds.


COLLABORATE

Meet up with like-minded crafters and create masterpieces together. Invite friends over for a pixel party and work on a small village before taking the plunge outside and building at a larger scale or simply going on a mini adventure!





EXPLORE
Are your parent's telling you to spend more time outdoors? With Minecraft Earth, your neighborhood transforms. You'll want to spend more time outside - it's like a whole new world out there! Be ambitious and take on challenges or gather resources and share your imagination with others.

DID YOU KNOW.....?

Minecraft Earth is FREE?! YES, FREE! However, you do need an Microsoft or Xbox Live account (which is also free)! So, what are you waiting for?!

Before you start, you may want to peep the video to the right. YouTuber Wattles goes over everything you need to know before playing Minecraft Earth and showcases some first time gameplay, breaking down every menu and major mechanic. Woo!

Want to learn more? Head on over the the official Minecraft Earth website for all of the nitty gritty details or the FAQ page if you have any burning questions!

i have had access to earth since the start of September when they accidentally rolled it out across all of the Uk instead of just london postcodes

in my opinion its not a good ARG as ARGs have been (pokemon go etc)

you walk around your neighbourhood collecting blocks and resources that appear on the map that you can then use to build your worldspace called build-plates, this is where the micro-transactions come in, but i'll complain about that later

keyboard_arrow_downOlder Version




A new version dropped today (19/11/2019), (and a few other in the past weeks) fixing a lot of the issues i had with build plates (see collapsed spoiler) and rolling out minecraft earth to more people around the world. It is now easier to navigate around your buildplate, they now stand in a location and you can walk around them, however placing them under artificial light (electrical house lights) is still an issue, the game doesn't cope with the lighting, your best bet is to use it outside in daylight.
walking around your build plate and moving in and out with device positioning (move device closer for a closer look etc) now works as intended, this is a big step and makes more complex and intricate builds actually do-able instead of the old build i was using before, The buildplate can get a bit glitchy and has a tendency to jump around if you get too too close to it or into strange positions, but that is understandable esp when its trying to keep the plate in camera and you are going stupid with your positioning

There are more free buildplates to unlock through level progression which you level up by completing challenges and interacting with the game, there is a plate for a forest,desert, jungle and snow biome with the original one you get for free as plains with the same ones available in the ingame store for the ruby currency, the first one you unlock at level 5, then every 5 levels up to level 20 for the snow biome, however ALL these buildplaces are 8x8 meaning anything bigger is currently locked behind a paywall.

the ingame challenges revolve around collecting X of material colelcting X of mob, pretty easy to complete and offer a small amount of exp on completion, they reset every day (as far as i have seen for now)

i'm yet to find anyone else around where i live to see how multiple devices interact with the same build-plate however. The Game has also bought in the ability to edit your character's skin, however this is 100% microtransactions and will be covered below.

The game is a lot lot lot more playable than before, however it still suffers from the core issues of there really being nothing to do unless you like building with limited space and blocks in minecraft





monitization


we got us some premium currency called rubies, they do have a rare chance to drop from harvesting resources/collecting animals but mainly u going to be buying them
they come in 5 packages £1.99, £4.99, £9.99, £19.99 and £39.99

these currencies can be used to purchase new buildplates, primarily larger ones, 8x8 and 16x16 areas with animals like cows sheep and chickens bundles into them as well as some "rare" plants as well as pre-build structures from fenced areas to the most expensive package which is a small village
all of these can be dismantled to collect the blocks they have for your own builds

Rubies do not have an uncommon drop rate and you will get 1 every few minutes or so when harvesting resources, they also drop from weekly challenges

as of the update on the 19th November 2019, you are able to customise your avatar with custom skins or custom skin pieces like jackets and hats etc, almost all of these however are locked behind a second paywall this time using the currency we are all used to, minecoins. again these packages
320 coins for £1.89, 960+60 for £5.99, 1600+120 for £9.49 and 3200+300 for £18.99
detailed cosmetics between 100 and 300 coins, low quality for under 100 coins

take of it what you want, you cant import custom skins or edit them properly, but they can easily be ignored as they don't affect the game, what is more concerning is the fact that there are now two micro-transaction currencies in the game for completely different things, why they couldn't just use rubies or minecoins is a question lost to time

overall im not really sold, the game does not play very well in comparison to other ARGs available, you guys may think different, but im just gonna sit and watch its development and probably skip it

You need to be less aggressive and brooding and just watch the game develop jesus you said you had it at the beginning well maybe it was bad then but it will probably change in the future so stop being a critic and wait for it to develop before you actually quit it.
Plus its only been out for like a month they haven't had enough time to figure out and fix stuff to fit peoples recommendations.

disagree all games have positive and negative aspects no matter what build version or state of release, it is important to know the good and bad parts of each version from a development standpoint and to see how the game handles changes from older versions and fixes issues, a new build has released today will be updating my post soon with what i think about the changes/updates

Mobile games, in My opinion, are terrible. People rush and copy games and they come out as trash, They then add ads and make a "No ads!" button for like $20. There are only a few mobile games i would think is worth the space, (And sometimes, money.) But I mean, like just about... 5? maybe 3?

Just got back from a walk playing it and I love the game. The location syncing is a bit off and sometimes really random but other than that I've enjoyed the game so far. Wish it wasn't so cold and didn't get dark at like 4:40 so I could be out longer but that's just where I live.

Yeah. It's sad this game isn't support on phones 2018 and lower. I really don't know why they did this, but maybe it's simply related to the Android version and the specs of the phone. I didn't even get a phone until 2016, but I can imagine it's pretty rough since I'd assume a 2015 phone has worse/older hardware and stuff.

I like the idea of the augmented reality Minecraft.
The time delay in crafting is obnoxious. The Pokemon Go-style map was irritating then, and it will be here, too.

This seems like a fun concept that got screwed over by the free-to-play in-app-purchase insanity.
