The early access version of the mobile game Minecraft Earth will be rolled out worldwide from October.

The intention is that the iOS and Android game will be available in various countries during the coming month. Exactly when the game will become playable in the Netherlands is not yet known, but the game must be globally playable before the end of this year. People can sign up for updates on the official website.

Minecraft Earth is similar to Pok√©mon Go, but lets players build things in an augmented reality world. The game also contains different monsters that players can collect for their structures and you can tap blocks and crates to collect resources. Players can also do various activities with others, such as building on a smaller scale before building works are shared with the outside world. There are also so-called ‘mini-adventures’ that players can go and do together.

Minecraft Earth is released free-to-play for iOS and Android.
