This can all be done alone or with friends. Imagine Pokemon GO meets Minecraft.

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 can begin pre-registering for Minecraft Earth today before the first access unleashes in October.
Only some countries will have it available at the start and have access to the game in October, however, by the end of the year, Mojang plans to release Minecraft Earth on the market globally on both iOS and Android platforms.
