The Xbox team have finally announced a mobile game with augmented reality technology and this is something that will make your heart beat faster. This is not just another mediocre AR title that doesn’t have anything in common with real digital world that become real (or the real one that becomes digital, who now). This is a masterpiece called Minecraft Earth, a new word in the universe of AR titles and expectedly the most popular title of next years. As the creators promised, the project “will open up wide opportunities for players that they have not seen in the entire history of the legendary series.” And they were absolutely precise and honest here – indeed, this new version of Minecraft is something that is not similar to any other game, neither from the series, nor any other. Finally, we have a chance to experience how the advanced and well-thought AR title created with attention and passion feels like.
During the playing process, users will find blocks, chests and monsters in the real world. Yes, the objects will stay digital, but they will be placed in our environment and you will use your camera to see and get them. Sometimes you will even meet small pieces of the life-sized Minecraft worlds that you can interact with. As examples, the developers cite sidewalks turning into diamond mines, and square trees in parks, behind which skeletons can hide. Also, there might be a dungeon under your house or a castle to be seen right from the window of your living room. Sounds exciting, isn’t it? Thus, the main features we all love and appreciate in the series will stay as they were and this is great. For example, while you experience will surely be something really different from the one you’ve had at your PC, the main actions to perform will stay as they were. Of course, collecting sources and building fortresses in the real world is not the same as collecting them on the screen only, but you will be doing that. As for the creatures, well, you will meet a plenty of them here. The project will add not only familiar monsters all Minecraft fans know by heart, but also completely new creatures. There will be special rare creatures needed for the construction of new buildings, finding resources and performing tests. You will meet them anywhere you go, so don’t forget to keep your phone with this title. We are assured that you don’t really want to miss the piglets that are dancing around your house, do you?
Minecraft Earth embodies the most advanced Microsoft technologies, including Azure spatial references and the advanced capabilities of the PlayFab server platform, thanks to which such a project could be born. The developers did their best to use the latest and most advanced tools to make your experience not only unique, but also absolutely unforgettable. They also did everything to let players not only stay busy with their building, but also join other members on the server and unite their capacities. As the game has always been a perfect place for social contacts, now it becomes even better at this respect. So whether you want to play with your friends, brother, sisters or parents or find someone from the other part of the globe to share that amazing collecting and creating – you are always welcome to do so. Graphics and opportunities of Minecraft Earth are amazing and endless. With this title, the entire world will turn into a fairy tale and you will be the hero inside of it. This might be the best way to see everything from a new creative angle or simply allows yourself a small escape to the digital world, which is not just close to the reality, but a part of it now. Play this game right here and be aware that it is absolutely free!
