Microsoft and Mojang held their annual Minecon live stream event this weekend, and it was here that they offered new info regarding the forthcoming mobile game, Minecraft Earth. the game has been confirmed to release in early access in Oct in some countries and will be released globally by the beginning of 2020. Mojang hasn’t confirmed which countries will be receiving the game first.
Revealed earlier this year, Minecraft Earth is a mobile augmented reality game that lets players explore Earth, whilst additionally assembling a collection of familiar Minecraft blocks, building structures and fighting enemies like Creepers. This will all be done alone or with friends. suppose Pokemon GO meets Minecraft.
Mojang also released a brand new feature referred to as Minecraft Earth Adventures. These are little, pre-made areas that may pop-up for a restricted time and can challenge players to seek out rare materials, solve puzzles or fend off enemies. These may also be taken on with friends.
Minecraft Earth has been on the market via a closed beta in a very few cities, however, once the game launches in early access it’ll embrace additional options, items, crafting talents and enemies than what’s presently accessible within the beta.
Android users will begin pre-registering for Minecraft Earth today before the first access unleashes in Oct. Only some countries will have it available at the start and have access to the game in Oct, however, by the end of the year, Mojang plans to release Minecraft Earth on the market globally on both iOS and Android platforms.
As you’ll have caught wind of by now, Mojang is taking a vote to decide on which of Minecraft’s biomes ought to be updated next. The vote is taking place at MineCon which is taking place on September 28th, and also the biomes in question are Badlands, Mountain and Swamp. We’ve already seen what the Badlands update is planned to bring. Now, here’s a brief video on what could be brought to the Swamp:
Should it win the vote, the Swamp can get boats with inbuilt chests, frogs, and a brand new Rhizophora mangle tree. For reference, here’s what the Badlands update seems like, and here’s Mountains.
Of course, it’s possible that every one of those biomes can get updates in due time: this vote is simply to decide which is able to come back 1st. therefore if you are notably enthusiastic about any of those 3 biomes, despite none of them being Caves, ensure you vote on September 28th.
Last week Mojang announced to the world that it’ll be holding a vote to decide which of the 3 Minecraft biomes will get major new updates. The vote, that takes place on September 28th to coincide with MineCon Live, pits the Swamp, Mountains and Badlands biomes against each other. As of nowadays, we know very little regarding what the Badlands update actually intends to bring.
In a short video uploaded to Instagram, the studio summed it up:
If you don’t want to watch the video, the Badlands update is expected to bring tumbleweed, a “fancy new cactus” and vultures, which are attracted to loot “left behind by unlucky explorers”.
Of course, these details released are very basic and the video is very short. I am unsure if the final update can boast additional stuff than is listed here, however, all we can do is watch the other videos posted by Mojang and guess. These videos give you something to do until September 28th, that is that the day pick will occur via livestream.
Mojang has released the third and final video showing forthcoming changes to Minecraft’s biomes. The question of that of those updates can roll out initial, are subject to a vote to require place on September 28th throughout MineCon Live. we have seen Swamp and Badlands, currently, it is time to take a look at Mountains.
Here’s the video:
The video is somewhat vaguer than the previous ones, although we’re told that snow is going to be “snowier”, that I am taking to mean slipperier. The voiceover describes “jagged cliffs, natural covering peaks and dramatic views”, which are not notably uncommon in Minecraft, although it looks they’re going to become even more commonplace (and much more spectacular) in this biome.
Oh, and there’ll be goats. It’s honestly about time that Minecraft got goats. The vote will be held throughout MineCon Live throughout a September 28th on their official Livestream.
