This summer, Minecraft is entering the real-world thanks to augmented reality, mobile devices, and the Minecraft Earth app.
Minecraft is a legendary crafting survival game from Mojang and Microsoft, where players can build literally anything they can imagine. However, they emphasized that they didn't want it to be a "pay to win" game, and that Minecraft Earth doesn't need to be a "revenue-first" title. In a FAQ, Microsoft says the game will not use loot boxes. Players can download the F2P mobile game where players will be able to find Minecraft blocks, chest, mobs and adventures as they travel through their daily lives.
One of the most popular games in existence is getting the Pokémon Go treatment. You can walk around it and look at it from all angles through your phone display, and if you walk through a wall of the building, your camera will show you the interior. Everyone who signs up will also be given a limited edition skin for Minecraft Earth and Minecraft Bedrock.
During a demo of Minecraft Earth at developer Mojang's office in Stockholm, Shuber placed his own build of a tall, intricate castle on the reception area pool table.
The game will be released on Android and iOS, and it layers its virtual world on top of the real one. So expect the same Minecraft experience you enjoy today, but with a real-world, augmented reality twist. As long as you have enough phones (or tablets with SIM cards), this is going to be a fascinating new family activity.

If you're the parent of an Xbox Live child account, you will be able to use elevated privacy controls to protect youngsters. That said, we don't know anything about this game's pricing structure, and free-to-play games run a range from fair to outrageous, so we'll have to wait and see.
Microsoft acquired Minecraft from its creator in 2014, and has (mostly successfully) sought to turn it into a family-friendly, educational gaming and creative powerhouse.
