Minecraft Earth has now opened up its beta to Android users. The beta was released to iPhone users running at least iOS 10 last month, as reported earlier Thursday by The Verge. Your device needs to be running Android 7 or higher to play, and you also have to be 18 or older.
Like Pokemon Go, Minecraft Earth is an augmented reality mobile game where players can explore the real world and build within it using Minecraft blocks. It was officially revealed in May, with Microsoft showing off gameplay in a trailer.
To sign up, you’ll also need a Microsoft or Xbox Live account and app store login. By signing up for the beta, you can get a free skin for Minecraft Earth and Minecraft Bedrock.
According to CNET sister site GameSpot, you can explore the Minecraft Earth world to find treasure chests, block clusters and mobs called “Toppables.” You can build permanent structures on Build Plates, and, by coming across an Adventure, you can also experience a full Minecraft overlay where you can collect resources and dispatch mobs.
Multiplayer capabilities are also expected in the future.
