Minecraft Earth Turns Your Entire City Into a Playable Sandbox, Beta Coming Later This Year

Microsoft unveiled Minecraft Earth this week,
an augmented reality title that is set to turn your entire real
world into a playable sandbox. 

Much like Pokemon GO, players will use their phone to interact
with things that placed around the real world. And according to
Microsoft, the game stays very true to the core fundamentals of
Minecraft, but there’s been a blending of the traditional
creative and survival modes. 


In a conversation with The Verge, Minecraft Earth director Torfi
Olafsson says, “We have covered the entire planet in Minecraft.
Every lake is a place you can fish, every park is a place you can
chop down trees. We’ve actually taken maps of the entire world
and converted them to Minecraft.”

I’ll be honest, this sounds dope. To get a good idea of what
to expect, watch the below trailer. 

The beta is scheduled to go live this summer for iOS and Android
devices. Follow the link below to get yourself signed up.
