Look out Pokémon Go: Microsoft unveils new Minecraft Earth augmented reality game

Pokémon Go was a revolutionary step forward for AR gaming and although millions are still playing today, its impact somehow felt limited. That means when you are working on your creation, your friends will be able to join you from their phones, and help you with your creation at the same time, at the same place. Collaboration is arguably the biggest draw of Minecraft Earth as you're encouraged to share your creations with others in the real world. Developer Mojang states that Minecraft Earth features numerous critters that Minecraft players know and love, but also a "bunch of new ones".

The FAQ is scant on details about how exactly the game is going to work, but it does say that the app will have a reporting system for player safety as well as parental controls - one would hope it also comes with PokeGO's speed sensor, which locks you out of the game if it perceives you're trying to use it while driving.

Furthermore, in direct comparison with Pokemon GO, Minecraft Earth will feature the ability to collect animals. You'll be able to buy in-game items, but Microsoft ensures us there will be no loot boxes present.

Microsoft first teased a new Minecraft AR game at the end of its Build 2019 introducing keynote last week, announcing at the time that more info would be revealed on May 17. As you take on Adventures, you'll gain experience to progress in your career. As you explore, you'll also run into Adventures, which act like mini-encounters with a group of hostile creatures or a breakable bit of environment.

The whole experience begins with "tappables", the basic resource-gathering process in Minecraft Earth.

Surviving: You can battle Minecraft mobs in real life! There are no fixed timeframes as of writing as to when you can expect to get your hands on Minecraft Earth's virtual pickaxes, but we shouldn't be waiting too long. It's where you can use the resources you've collected to put your own creative spin on the game. We can't wait to see how it all works come the summer.

Minecraft Earth has a dedicated website as well as a sign-up page where hopeful players can attempt to gain access to the beta release.
