Forward-looking:Minecraft Earth could be exactly what the mobile gaming industry needs to further advance the idea of augmented reality gaming. Microsoft already sells cosmetic skin packs and texture add-ons for Minecraft's core experiences, and I expect it'll do the same here.
In celebration of Minecraft's tenth anniversary, Microsoft played its Pokemon GO card and released an augmented reality phone app that shows the game pasted over the real world, called Minecraft Earth. Bump into a sheep, pig or other mob during an adventure and you'll be able to collect and domesticate them.
Playing with other Minecraft Earth crafters will allow players to work together on a small scale before taking builds into the world.
Collecting: Minecraft Earth features numerous mobs that Minecraft players know and love (and potentially hate), along with new ones. Players will be able to collect and showcase these variants on their Build Plates, which they can also set out into the world for players to explore (but not destroy).
As with Pokemon Go, Minecraft Earth is made to be a social multiplayer game, with easy-to-join sessions for any nearby players. 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. Essentially, we're being offered the Minecraft version of your location, be that at home, school, or wherever you choose to frequent. Building mechanics and Minecraft's blocky take on physics remains, but Minecraft Earth introduces some major changes.
