Minecraft Earth has extended its global rollout, launching in Japan and select regions in Europe. These include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxemborg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland.
In case you haven’t heard of this yet, it’s a brand new entry in the Minecraft franchise that draws a lot of inspiration from Pokémon GO. You’ll wander around a blocky version of the real world map, collecting resources that you can craft into numerous items.
Minecraft Earth Should Complete its Global Rollout by 2020
The real draw of the experience is the buildplates though. These are small Minecraft worlds that you can place anywhere using the power of AR and customise them to your heart’s content. You can even invite your friends to help you build, and join your friends as they build theirs.
The multiplayer options don’t end there though. You can also head out on adventures with your friends, battling monsters and exploring caves as you hunt for rare resources.
So head on over to Google Play right now and check out Minecraft Earth if it’s available in your territory. If not, you probably don’t have long to wait, as we expect it to launch across the globe by 2020.
