Minecraft Earth Is a New Augmented Reality Game for Your Mobile Device

Minecraft's version of Pokemon Go is coming to a phone near you soon.

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Minecraft today, Mojang and Microsoft announced a new title in the franchise that will be heading to your mobile device in the future.

Minecraft Earth is the name of this new installment in the Minecraft family and it’s essentially Mojang’s take on the Pokemon Go craze. Much like Pokemon GoMinecraft Earth is an augmented reality game that sees you finding objects scattered throughout the real world. As you find blocks and other items in the world, you’ll then be able to do, what else, but build objects.

Minecraft Earth will allow you to build structures on what it says is any flat object in the world. You’ll also be able to team up with other friends to collaborate on structures. There will also be survival elements of the game that will allow you to see how long you can stay alive against hordes. Specific information on how all of this is going to work more specifically hasn’t been given yet, but it seems like it could make for an enjoyable experience.

Below you can check out the reveal trailer for Minecraft Earth to get a better idea as to how this game will work. For not, Minecraft Earth doesn’t have a release date but Microsoft says it will share more information in the future. If you’d like to read more in the meantime, you can head over to Minecraft’s official website to see more.
